Interleague play always leads to thoughts of World Series matchups. Indeed, the current series between the Red Sox and Phillies is being touted by many as a World Series preview despite the fact that the team from Beantown is in second place.
Anyway, the Yankees are playing the Brewers now, and they've never met in the World Series*, but they also never met in the playoffs while the Brewers were in the American League either.
*The Yankees played the Milwaukee Braves in the World Series in both 1957 and 1958.
The Yankees have an illustrious postseason history, and have therefore faced a lot of different teams in either the AL playoffs or World Series, but do you know just how many? In fact, there are only seven (7) MLB teams that the Yankees have never played in the playoffs, including the Milwaukee Brewers. Can you name the other six?
Correct answer will be posted tomorrow.
