Back to 6 games against the White Sox including a 3 games at GRate the 2nd to last week of the season. That is the first thing that jumped out at me

Edit: Also 10 game road trip to start the season? Geez

Have the Brewers approved of this schedule? Just want to make sure they don't have any major objections.

The 6 games as opposed to 4 is likely due to Inter-league rotation being AL Central v. NL Central.

I've not looked at other teams that have these protected rallies to test that theory though.

I'm most excited about this. No stupid opening day followed by an off day.

That's exactly what it is. Since Houston went to the NL, the crosstown series has only been 3 games in Central vs. Central years.

Pretty unfair to the Brewers that they might not even play in Miami this weekend and even if they do it will be a damaged stadium and the next time we go it's going to be re-built and refurbished like new.

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

At first glance, is anyone noticing an excessive amount of 4-game series?

are they doing that to lower the travel?
