Bob, I meant the Yankees. I read somewhere they have a choice as to which schedule to follow. They still have to play Detroit, but have a choice of how many days off they want - during or after the series (if they win).
Yankees do have a choice, but there's no choice to be made in the NL. Don't know if this has happened in the past. I'm sure it revolves around tv money.
The New York Yankees have clinched the best record in the American League and thus will have the right to decide whether they will play in the seven-day or eight-day Division Series (i.e., whether it will start its Division Series on Wednesday, Oct. 7th or Thursday, Oct. 8th). The Yankees must make their selection no later than one hour following the completion of any game that finalizes the match-ups in the Division Series.
