The day after opening day but before game 2. If you win you want to continue rolling and if you lose you want to get back on the diamond. You almost have no choice but to over analyze opening day from a team's fans perspective.

agreed, hate and dont understand the day off gap. Is Cincy the only team that does that? Besides obviously whoever we are playing ;)

I'd love to be watching the Reds, but I just love baseball, man. I've been boxscore watching all day. Radio on constantly and now that I'm home from work, tv. Gotta love this game.

The Reds do this because of how special Opening day is in Cincinnati, incase of a rain out they can reschedule for the following day, atleast thats what someone told me a few years back when i asked.

There are some other teams off as well - I think MLB does that to get as many teams on TV as possible with multiple games on ESPN.

The day off is in place so that teams have a make-up date in case of inclement weather.

2011 Opening Day followed by a day off:
Baltimore
New York Yankees
Washington
Cincinnati
St. Louis

Teams that obviously don't need this day off are because of beautiful weather or roofs:
Arizona
Houston
Los Angeles Angels
Los Angeles Dodgers
Milwaukee
Oakland
San Diego
San Francisco
Seattle
Tampa Bay
Toronto

I think there were only a couple of teams that played each of the first two days this year. I've always thought it was an attempt to have two "opening days", with a group of teams opening each day, without having the "day 2" openeners compete with the original group.

I have to say, though, I don't like having the off day in the middle of a series. It's the only time all year that happens.
