    2012 schedule released

    http://cincinnati.com/blogs/reds/201...r-breakingnews

    Opening Day is April 6 vs. the Marlins. That's a Friday, and there is no off day scheduled the day after, unlike recent years. Interleague has Tigers and Twins coming to town, Reds play at the Yankees, and the normal home-and-home with Cleveland. Season ends Wednesday, Oct. 3 in St. Louis.

    Miami in mid-September. Pennant race hopefully.
    That is the height of the hurricane season around here, so retractable roof and all, it could be a problem.

    I'll be there, but I guess if I want to see some games, I'm going to have to get my butt up to Cincy next year.

    I know you meant Oct 3. Tough place to end the season.

    The Indians visit Cincinnati for a mid-week series next year - that's a first. And the late May trip to new Yankee Stadium looks like a shoe-in for away series next year!

    Interesting they pushed the season back a week next year. This year we started in late March and end in late September. Now they start a week later. I thought they were pushing the season up to get the postseason done earlier.

    Another note opening day April 6th is also Good Friday next year.

    The Yankee series is preceded by a two game set with the Mets at Citi field. Five straight games in New York in may.

    The long tradition of children skipping school for Opening Day will take a hit since April 6 is, as Reds Fanatic pointed out, Good Friday.

    It's a far cry fron when Cincinnati traditionally ushered in the season. Now it's not even the opening series.

    You got me curious with this statement. Wow. If I were a Marlins fan, I'd be kinda upset. Their schedule is REALLY screwy.

    They play the cards at home on Weds to open the season. Then they're off thursday, play a 3 game set in Cincy, followed by a 3 game set in Philly that's split up in the middle of it with a day off. Monday, Weds & Thurs. That's just weird.
    Chapman to the rotation!!!! Do it already!!!!

    Bummed they're not playing up at Target Field in MN this year. I was hoping to make a trip up there next summer. I love the Minn.-St. Paul area and really wanted to see our guys play there. Oh well.

    I may actually be able to get to Opening Day this year without missing much work. We always have a half day off on Good Friday so I only have to take off a half day off to head downtown for all the festivities. Now all I need to do is get some daggone tickets this year!

    Why in the world are they playing the Yankees again when they played them this year?
    The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.

    I'm guessing it's a reward, letting them open the season at home and it was the only way to shoe horn it in.

    So they scrapped the week early idea after one year?
