Updating the Chart

Just an update on the number of postseason games, after the NLCS:

Year ALDS NLDS ALCS NLCS WS Total
1995 8 7 6 4 6 31
1996 8 6 5 7 6 32
1997 9 6 6 6 7 34
1998 7 7 6 6 4 30
1999 8 8 5 6 4 31
2000 8 7 6 5 5 31
2001 10 8 5 5 7 35
2002 9 8 5 5 7 34
2003 9 9 7 7 6 38
2004 7 9 7 7 4 34
2005 8 7 5 6 4 30
2006 7 7 4 7 5 30
2007 7 6 TBD 4 TBD TBD

So, the maximum number of postseason games this year will be 31, which is just one over the prior low.  Odds are, then, we’ll have a new record for fewest games in the postseason, something television executives hate to hear!
