    If the World Series goes to seven games, it could be played on November 1.

    In an ideal world, the San Francisco Giants will be featured in the 2012 MLB Postseason. It's supposed to happen, what with the Giants currently leading the National League West and San Francisco being the favorite to win the division.

    It might not happen, of course, and that would make Pablo Sandoval a very sad panda on October 3 when the MLB regular season ends.

    But if the Giants do make the postseason, you're going to want to know when they're playing right? Well, good news, because MLB released its postseason schedule on Thursday. As a reminder, the National League has homefield advantage in the World Series and, yes, this year there ARE two Wild Cards from each league.
