    Re: 2007 Schedule (tentatively) is out

    Does anybody have any insights on how the intradivisional schedule gets formulated?

    Looks to me like the Reds and Cubs will play 18 times split right down the middle home and home. The other NL Central teams the Reds play 15 or 16 times and the home/ away offsets are 9/6 or 9/7 with the Reds having the 9 home games with a couple (Houston and Milwuakee) and 9 road games with the other two (StLouis and Pittsburgh).

    The Reds will see the entire Central division before the end of April. In April and also again in September except for one 3 game series each month all games will be within the division. All of June will be out of division except 5 games with the Cards. This all seems somewhat different.

    And one final quirk. The Reds and Astros face each other 12 times before the end of May then don't meet again until the final week of the season.

    Reschedule your vacation.

    Lots of off days in the middle of road trips. That seems odd.

    There were 4 or 5 instances of off days in the middle of Homestands this year - and there were get-away days with no off days coming and going from the west coast this year.

    6 "getaway" offdays. One from SF to home.

    The rest are from Home to Pitt, Home to Chi, Pitt to home, Home to Was, Home to St. L.

    A couple of the mid road trip off days are serious travel days.

    September has only 6 "out of division" games which is good.

    A suggestion for the REDSZONE get together for 2007.

    Lose the democracy.
    Pick a date that's convenient for the organizers and go with it.

    Some of us out-of-towners might just join in if we can plan ahead.
    Personally, I've never been to Cincinnati. This would be a great opportunity.

    Shouldn't hate us "morons" so much. They provide the Reds with great attendance figures every time they are in town.

    That's OK by me since the Astros are such slow starters.
    The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.

    Before divisional play the Cubs were the Reds opponents on Opening Day 28 times, between 1898 and 1916 the Cubs and Pirates rotated the honor of playing the Reds on their most cherished day and it was a Cubs batter (Johnny Evers) who was the first MLB player to bat at Redland Field in 1912.

    Opening Day is the one day a year when attendance is not usually a problem
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Maybe a Redszone get together at one of those three games? I'd be up for a quick flight up north

    The Dbacks trip is oddly placed as well, I can't remember then playing in AZ so early in the season, especially wedged in between two homestands
    That week is strongly in the running for Baseball Tour 2007!: West Coast Edition.

    True. But the game - or games - after it are. With the Chubs coming in you have guaranteed yourself a decent crowd for the entire series and not just Opening Day.
