WORLD SERIES
(All games on FOX)

Game 5 at AL: Oct. 24 (if necessary)
Game 6 at NL: Oct. 26 (if necessary)
Game 7 at NL: Oct. 27 (if necessary)

Notes: The regular season ends Sept. 28. ... This schedule puts an onus on teams to have a deep rotation. In the ALCS, for instance, the Game 1 starter could go three times, but the second two starts would have to be on three days' rest. ... The AL champion does get a break with an extra day off before the World Series.

If the season ended right now in the AL it would be Tigers vs. Red Sox and Yankees vs. Rangers.
