Major League Baseball released the 2014 schedules for all teams today, without game times of course. There's plenty to discuss with respect to the Yankee schedule for next year, but with the focus still being on their dwindling playoff chances in 2013, let's just hit the highlights for now.
- Season opens on the road on April 1st, 2014 against the Houston Astros. It ends on September 28th on the road against Boston.
- Home opener is April 7th against the Orioles.
- Subway Series will be May 12th-15th with the first 2 games at The Stadium and the last 2 at Citi Field.
- Interleague play will take place against the NL Central, including 2 home series against Pittsburgh and Cincinnati, 2 road series against St. Louis and Milwaukee (!!!), and a 4-game split with the Cubs.
- As is usually the case, the start and end to the regular season will be primarily AL East opponents- 17 of the first 22 games and 26 of the final 29.
