Thanks for the schedule breakdown. I think the first game is at the Bronx versus TB on April 3, 2007.

Actually it's on April 2...April 3rd is, for some reason, a scheduled off-day. That series will go April 2, April 4, April 5. Yeah, I know, it's pretty lame.

Here's my "analysis" reposted from a thread on the old boards:


I don't care what anyone says; the schedule committee nails the Yanks every chance they get. Look at what MLB puts the Yankees through this year with their schedule (just about EVERY doggone season now):

In April: A trip to the West Coast on thier 1st trip of the season for just ONE West Coast series, followed by a day off, then just a miserable, lousy, one series-three game homstand followed by an immediate trip to Fenway for their 1st Red Sox series. That 3-game homestand will, be in effect, ANOTHER road series, because they'll be in NYC for just the 3 days.

In May: The 9-day trip mid-month...look at this monstrousity!! Another trip to the West Coast for just one steaming series, followed by a day off, followed by a road series against the White Sox, immediately followed by the 1st Mets' series at Shea, and then with NO DAYS OFF after that, their 3rd Red Sox series (2nd at home) in about a month's time.

This year, The Gauntlet comes early, not late; here's the schedule starting May 15th, and running through early June:

3 in Chicago against the White Sox
3 against the Mets at Shea
3 at home vs the Red Sox, a day off, then
3 at home vs. the Angels
3 in Toronto vs. the Jays, a day off, then
3 in Fenway vs, the Sox (Their 4th series against the Sox in 6 weeks!)
and finally, 4 more in Chicago against the White Sox (Yes, that's right! 7 games in Chicago vs. the Sox in about 3 1/2 weeks!)

Nice 22-game stretch, hunh? Well, just for good measure, later in June, MLB throws in ther 3rd West Coast trip in 3 months, this time to play, yes, again(!) one steaming 3-game series against the Giants in SF.

In July, after a tough 10-game homestand to start the month against the A's, the Twins, and the Angels, the Break comes, and the rest of the month is a breather, 2 series with TB, one with KC, one with the Orioles, and one with the Jays (at home).

However, the schedule turns ridiculous again the 2nd half of August:

A 4-game series at home vs. the Tigers, no turnaround, and then...
Their 4th one-steaming-series West Coast trip of the season, this time to face the Angels in Anaheim, then a day off, then a 4-game series in Detroit, which is immediately followed by no turnaround again, and they come home for their final home series against the Red Sox.

Now let me see if I have this straight...
In August, not September.
Right after a tough 7-game trip to Anaheim, their house of horrors, and Detroit, home of the AL Champs,
And then no day off to come home
And play the Red Sox, with the only day off in this stretch between Anaheim and Detroit.

Yeah, that's fair and reasonable.

The saving grace is September. One series against the Sox in Fenway (right in the middle of a 9-game stretch, with no day off in front or in back, despite the fact that the Yanks have FOUR (4) days off in the month). 2 series with Toronto, 1 home and 1 road. 2 series each with the Rays and the O's, and 1 each with the Mariners and the Royals.

Once again, if they get that far in contention, they ought to be able to boot home another trip to the playoffs in September.

Ridiculous schedule. 4 frinking West Coast trips, for one lousy series each.
Four. Just absurd.

Replying to myself is bad form, but I just to a look at the Red Sox schedule...and here's my analysis from a thread on the old boards...


The bad parts:

They catch the Yanks twice in a 19-game stretch without any days off in April, and the 2nd series is right at the end.
The 3rd Yankees series is at the end of a 16-game stretch with no days off.
They have 6 series in the Pacific time zone to the Yanks' 4.
Their last homestand of the year is Minnesota and Oakland for 3 games each.

The good parts:

The 6 West coast series are crammed into 3 road trips, not 4.

The 1st series with the Tigers comes right in the middle of a 10-game homestand, with the Orioles in front and the Braves right after. Their second series, in Detroit, comes right after a homestand in which the last team is The Rays, and right before the All-Star Break.

Their 1st series with the Angels is a 4-gamer at home, the 2nd series of a 2-series stand in which the previous opponent is the Mariners. Their series in Anaheim comes in the middle of a 9-game swing, right after yes, the Mariners again, and with a day off following to fly back and go play the O's in Baltimore.

Their 1st series against the White Sox comes at the end of an 11-game homestand...right after Tampa Bay, and right before they fly to Cleveland. The road series in Chicago comes right after a road series in Tampa Bay. Then they get a day off before coming to the Stadium to face the Yanks.

Speaking of which, the Red sox get a day off before EACH of the last 3 series vs. the Yanks next season; the one in June, the one in august at the Stadium, and the one in September in Fenway. The Yanks only day off before a Sox' series? The June series. In fact, this is so absurd, I ahve to run this comparion:

The Six Sox Series:

April 20-22 in Fenway
Yanks: 3 at home vs. the Indians, no day off, Sox, no day off, at Tampa Bay
Sox: 3 in Toronto, no day off, Yanks, no day off, 2 vs. the Jays at Fenway

April 27-29 at the Stadium
Yanks: 2 at home vs. the Jays, no day off, Sox, day off, 3 in Texas vs. Rangers
Sox: 2 in Baltimore, no day off, Yanks, day off, 2 at Fenway vs. A's

May 21-23 at the Stadium
Yanks: 3 at Shea vs. Mets, no day off, Sox, day off, 3 at home vs. Angels
Sox: 3 in Fenway vs. Braves, no day off, Yanks, day off, 3 in Texas vs. Rangers

June 1-3 in Fenway
Yanks: 3 at Toronto, day off, Sox, no day off, 4 in Chicago vs. White Sox
Sox: 3 at home vs. Indians, day off, Yanks, no day off, 4 in Oakland vs. A's

August 28-30 at the Stadium
Yanks: 4 in Detroit, no day off, Sox, no day off, 3 at home vs. Devil Rays
Sox: 4 in Chicago vs. White Sox, day off, Yanks, no day off, 3 at Fenway vs. Orioles

September 14-16 at Fenway
Yanks: 3 in Toronto, no day off, Sox, no day off, 3 at home vs. Orioles.
Sox: 3 at home vs. Rays, day off, Yanks, no day off, 3 in Toronto.

In all, the Yanks have 1 day off the day before out of 6, the Sox have 3. Both teams have 2 days off the day after.

The teams that "wrap" the six series:

For the Yanks: Blue Jays, 3 times; Devil Rays, 2 times; one time each for the Angels, White Sox, Tigers, Mets, Rangers, Indians and Orioles.

For the Sox: Blue Jays, 3 times; Orioles, 2 times; A's, 2 times; one time each White Sox, Rangers, Indians, Braves, and Rays.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
It's pretty obvious the Sox have the easier schedule, not in terms of the level of competition, but in the way the schedule is arranged for them, with very few back-to-back series against the best teams, and more days off and measurably easier competition leading into and out of the head-to-head games vs. the Yanks.

The Red Soxs only have the easier schedule if they are any good. They look like they are going to trade Ramirez, especially now that they are leaning toward offering arbitration to Nixon and they have no bullpen plus Ortiz's bat will taken right out of his hands.

Close. Very Close. Mine is a little diffrent.

Al East
Red Soxs 12-6
Blue Jays 10-8
Orioles 13-5
Devil Rays 12-6
47-25

Al Central
White Soxs 6-4 (I Think They will Trade one of their starters)
Twins 5-2 (Twins are not that good especially without Liriano)
Tigers 4-4 (Split both the four game series)
Royals 8-2
Indians 3-3
26-15

Al West
Athletics 4-2 (We get them early at Oak, they don't usually start the season well)
Mariners 6-4 (if they get Schimdt watch out, they may get good again)
Rangers 3-3
Angels 4-5
17-14

Interleague
Mets 3-3 (They play us well but will come out with a split)
Pirates 3-0 (We always sweep one of the series)
D'Backs 2-1 (They are better than people believe)
Giants 2-1
Rockies 2-1 (One of the pitchers on the yankees will get bombed)
12-6


Add that up and you get 102-60
