    The series in May where they are home for the Indians for 2 and immediately go to Cleveland for 2 more is kind of strange

    The two game series are a result of the adjustments they had to make to always have one interleagule series going on next year.

    As far as interleague goes they have 2 games home and away with the Indians they also have 2 games home and away with the A's. Then they have the Angels at home to start the year and a 3 game series in Texas next year. I am not sure the Reds have ever played in that Texas stadium before.

    The April schedule looks tough to start. Not only starting with the Angels but 2 series with the Cardinals, 2 series with the Nationals and a series with the Phillies all in the first month.

    Apparently, MLB is doing this for everyone that same week. That is, that Monday and Tuesday everyone is playing their "natural" interleague rival for 2 games, then going to the other team's city for 2. Except in Texas, where the Rangers have planned day-night DH against ARI, then have Tuesday off, then are @ ARI for 2. Not sure why, maybe something going on in the Dallas are that Tuesday.

    BTW, with the schedule change some of the "natural" rivalries are new, like Astros-Rockies and Rangers-D-backs.

    I noticed the dreaded West Coast road swing in July after the All-Star Break.

    Re: 2013 Schedule is out

    Why isn't the schedule simply this:

    5 x 3 = 15 (interleague games)
    1 x 7 = 7 (interleague rival games) (every three years a team plays an additional 4 intraleague intradivisional games)
    10 x 6 = 60 (intraleague interdivisional games)
    4 x 20 = 80 (intraleague intradivisional games)
    Sabermetrics can be boiled down to this simple truism: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Yeah, I'm not liking that I have to plan my Reds games for that early in the season again. Hopefully I can get to Philly that weekend in May too since this season fell through.
    Is it "next season" yet?

    Well, I am absolutely hating season-long interleague play.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    The West Coast road trip at the end of July is going to be huge. 3 games at San Francisco, 4 at Los Angeles Dodgers, and 3 at San Diego, all consecutively with no days off.

    When the Reds travel to Busch Stadium on Monday, April 8, it will be St. Louis' home opener.

    16 of the first 22 games will be played at Great American Ball Park.

    The Reds will play 17 out of 20 games on the road between July 8 & July 31.

    They will close the season out with 31 of the final 53 games at home.

    The Reds will not face an NL West opponent until June 3 when they face Colorado.

    AL road opponents that the Reds will travel to are Cleveland, Oakland, Los Angeles Angels, Texas Rangers, and Houston Astros.

    Reds vs. Interleague opponents:
    LAA - Monday, April 1 - Thursday, April 4
    CLE - Monday, May 27 - Thursday, May 30
    OAK - Tuesday, June 25 - Wednesday, June 26; Tuesday, August 6 - Wednesday, August 7
    TEX - Friday, June 28 - Sunday, June 30
    SEA - Friday, July 5 - Sunday, July 7
    HOU - Monday, September 16 - Wednesday, September 18

    Holidays:
    Easter (Sunday, March 31) - No game this year
    Memorial Day (Monday, May 27) - Home vs. Cleveland
    Independence Day (Thursday, July 4) - Home vs. San Francisco
    Labor Day (Monday, September 2) - Home vs. St. Louis


    Here's the breakdown...

    NL East
    FLA - 7 games - 4 home, 3 away
    ATL - 7 games - 3 home, 4 away

    It's been awhile, but they have been there one time before in 2002
