MLB tentatively announces start times for ALDS Games Four & Five


MLB announced today that Game Four of the ALDS begin at 8:37pm ET on Thursday unless the Tigers and Athletics have to play a Game Five. In that case, the game will begin at 7:37pm ET. Game Five, if necessary, will begin at 7:07pm ET on Friday unless the Nationals and Cardinals have to play a Game Five. If they do, the Yankees and Orioles will have their game bumped up to 5:07pm ET. Got it? Good.

    According to what Chad Jennings wrote you have those circumstances reversed. If the Tigers and A’s DON’T have to play a game 5 then Yanks game 4 will be at 8:37 and if the Nats and Cards DON’T have to play game 5 then Yanks will be pushed back to 7:07.

    How about just having a set time and that’s that. I’m sick of having to solve a riddle just to figure out when the Yanks are playing and what channel they’re on.

  3. Even more incentive for this series to be over in 4.

    A 5:05 start on Friday would totally fuck me over.

    Screw you East Coast fans, I want all the Yankees games to start at 5.07ET. In fact, pretend every day is the weekend, make it 2.07ET.

    Yours lovingly, a UK-based fan ;-)
