I've seen some parts of the 2006 schedule. I heard they're opening up with the Cubbies and will be playing in Detroit and Chicago (AL) for interleague. Has anyone seen the entire schedule for 2006?

I don't think the complete schedule is released until the end of the season, but I remember hearing the only AL cities they're visiting are Cleveland and Detroit, with Chicago, Kansas City, and Cleveland coming into Cincinnati for interleague. You're correct about opening at home with the Cubs.

Full schedule's usually not released until mid-October. I think it was even later last year.

:bang:What that also means is that getting Opening Day tickets might be even harder than usual... :(

Cubs and Pirates have been the traditional opening opponents for most of the franchises history. Back in the day it was one day at home, a travel day and then Opening Day at their park.

Perhaps the REDS should start each year on the road? We all know what happened during the season when they last did this...

reds have almost always started their opening day games at home, and there shouldn't be any change to it, atleast i think.

i think they should go back to the reds play the first game of the season at home. just because of the history behind the team.

Some major AL draws there, I tell ya! Maybe we'll get lucky and see the White Sox manage to squeak into the postseason, then do well enough that they're able to generate some attendance revenue for us in our series next season.

Unlike Cubs fans, Sox fans actually have jobs so they can't pick up and follow their team on the road. ;)

Cool - barring injuries (or a permanent move of Wood to the bullpen) it looks like the Reds will open the season facing Prior, Wood and Zambrano.

Oh joy.

Reds announce 2006 schedule

CINCINNATI -- A home-and-home series with the I-71 rival Cleveland Indians and interleague games against American League Central Division opponents highlight the Cincinnati Reds' 2006 regular-season schedule released today.

All times and dates are subject to change.

Tickets for regular-season games will go on sale at a date to be announced. In December, holiday gift cards will be available at The Reds Team Shop by Majestic, located adjacent to Great American Ball Park; at The Majestic Dugout Shop, located in the Westin Hotel downtown; or by calling (513) 765-7400.

Starting times for the 2006 schedule will be announced after Major League Baseball's television broadcast selections are finalized in December.

The Reds will open the '06 season at Great American Ball Park on Monday, April 3 against the Chicago Cubs. Following a day off on Tuesday, April 4, the season-opening homestand concludes with 1 more game against Chicago followed by 4 with the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Cincinnati's first road trip of the season begins with a 3-game series at Chicago's Wrigley Field from April 11-13, followed by a 3-game set at St. Louis on April 14-16 in the Reds' first visit to the Cardinals' new ballpark, to be named Busch Stadium.

Interleague play will continue for the 10th straight season with 6 games against the American League Central Division's Indians in addition to 3-game series vs the AL Central's Detroit Tigers, Chicago White Sox and Kansas City Royals.

The Reds will host the White Sox from June 15-18, Buddy Bell's Royals from June 27-29 and the Indians in a Fourth of July weekend series from June 30-July 2.

Interleague road games are scheduled for May 19-21 at Detroit's Comerica Park and June 23-25 at Cleveland's Jacobs Field.

The home schedule includes 12 games in April, 14 games in May, 14 games in June, 12 games in July, 16 games in August and 13 games in September.

2 games series then 4 with the pirates?

That's odd.

Note to self...Reds road trips in 06 to Detroit and Cleveland (again).

While I have just begun perusing the Reds 2006 "tent-sched," one particular series already seems to jump off the screen at me...From September 4th-6th, there's a West Coast team that will make its only trip to GABP in 2006. Hint: Within this team's outfield resides a certain pumpkin-headed, media bashing, serial-fornicating racist...(that's right, a "PHMBSFR")

Now, taking into consideration the average HR/AB that this PHMBSFROF has averaged througout his career--and given the likelihood that this outfielder will be given considerable days off throughout the 2006 season--Blimpie's computer hereby projects that a certain fabled home run record stands a 83.45 % chance of falling during this home series. Mods, feel free to archive this thread if you must...

Thus, I move that we all try to purchase every OF seat available for that series. That way, we can easily abscond a souvenir from said fabled record and hold it hostage for a king's ransom. Either that, or we can agree to donate it to the HOF on the condition that we may take a Sharpie and write a big......giant......" * " on the sweet spot. Okay, so who's with me? :D

I say we buy up all the tickets for the day that Milton will be pitching that series. We'll significantly improve our odds that way.

But will the Giants let him break it on the road?

Why can't the Reds play one series in Pittsburgh in the summer (June, July, or early August)?! I always like to go to Pittsburgh to see them play (it's a much easier trip for me than going to Cincinnati), but for the second straight year it looks like the Reds' schedule conflicts with my work schedule! :angry:

Why can't the Reds in-state rival bite like the Cardinals? Not that it has mattered for the last couple of years, but it is like spotting the Cards a three game lead on the rest of the division.

Reds out missed their chance to beat up on the Indians the last 3-4 years.

Not to forget that those extra 3 games against the Tribe in 1999 (instead of 3 with the White Sox) almost certainly cost the Reds the Wildcard if not the outright Central Division crown

Dad gone it. The Reds are coming to DC again during the workweek,Mon-Wed April 24-26. I was hoping they would come to town on a weekend this next season. Hopefully the Wednesday game will be a day game. Those night games are too tough for me as I wouldn't get home till around midnight and then be back at work around 6:30 am. I'm too old to do that nowadays.

I'm too old to do that nowadays.For us distant fans, the schedule giveth and the schedule taketh away. The 2005 schedule contained no weekend series at Houston during the summer months, when I can easily attend multiple games. The 2006 version delivers what I'm looking for on the first weekend of June. :thumbup:
