I'm a huge sports fan. I'm also a huge history buff, and I enjoy thinking up alternate histories for certain events. With that in mind, I'd like to start a thread about Yankee history what ifs. For instance, what if the Yankees had home field in the 2001 WS? After all, if World Series home field advantage were decided by record, they would've had it.
NY Yankees (96-65) vs. Arizona Diamondbacks (92-70)
See what I mean?
Now, I could see the Yankees getting one of two games in Yankee Stadium. I don't see them being beaten 9-1 and 4-0 at home, unless they wanted a 1996 repeat. And if it comes down to Game 7, well, since 1979, when Pittsburgh did it to Baltimore, no team has went on the road to win a seventh game.
