The Yankees might not be playing October baseball in 2008, but they will be in 2009. I guarantee it.

I can make that guarantee because the Yankees revealed their regular season schedule for the 2009 season today. The schedule includes three regular season games to be played on the road against the Tampa Rays from October 2-3.

The new House That Arod Built will open April 16 as the Yankees open a four game series against the Cleveland Indians. The time is yet to be announced. That will be part of a seven-game homstand which will also feature three games against the Oakland Athletics. Their first game of the season will be a week and a half earlier April 6 against the Orioles in Baltimore.

The first time the big Red Sox rivalry comes to town will be a two-game weekday series starting Monday May 4 and wrapping up the next day May 5. The two teams won’t meet up again at the stadium until a four-game series August 6-9. The regular season rivalry ends with three games from September 25-27.

The Subway Series kicks off with a three-game series on Friday June 12 at Yankee Stadium and it will wrap up with another three-game set at Citi Field Friday June 26. The first national league team to play in the new stadium will be the Philadelphia Phillies who come to town May 22.

There will be one exhibition game played at the new stadium before the official start of the season, but details for that game are still being worked out.
