Darvish and Bryant are doubtful, but they still have to play the games.

Plus a Friday "just in case it rains" off day in freaking Texas, which makes no sense at all. Doubt we've ever had 2 scheduled Friday off days.

id generally agree but I'd like to not immediately have a 9 game road trip. Maybe 6 games, then 3 at home, then 3 in milwaukee or something. The rest of April can be on the road for all I care...it just doesn't completely feel like the season has started until that first game at Wrigley.

that's not a surprise at all, between the renovations and maybe maximizing some warm weather cities and domes early on.

The Vaunted Brewer fans will probably be upset all the games there are Weekends. FIB's invading and taking their women and children. Must be a favor from the league, etc.

The 5th of July Friday off day is nuts. Seriously, how did that get approved?

Don'y play coy with me, Conky.

The talk this season was very much that the Cubs ideally would be "maximizing some warm weather cities and domes early on" with how the 2018 season was scheduled to start.

I was making a sassy, hilarious reference to how they didn't do that. And thus the team with the best record in the NL yet again missed out on having an even more bestest record in the NL.

there are 13 games scheduled that day, so 4 teams have off. 6 teams have off on July 4. The Reds are one of those teams, so it's a possible makeup date for earlier games (Cubs/Reds have 9 games schedule prior to 7/4). The CWS and Cleveland also don't play, and the Cubs have three scheduled games vs CWS earlier.

My guess is Friday of holiday weekends are generally low attendance/ratings. I know I wouldn't be watching a Cubs game that day. I'll be at the beach. Do something enjoyable.

I get all of that, except Fridays are the most expensive ticket of the week in MLB (another thing that sucks about the Cubs never having Friday night games - especially back when their revenues were so driven by ticket sales). A Friday in the middle of the summer on an extended weekend... Seems pretty dumb to not be selling tickets.

But, hey, the Cubs don’t get any off days in September.

Yeah, most Fridays are key dates. But the Cubs and White Sox would not have accepted a day off on this day if holiday weekend Fridays were expected to be as good of a turnout/ratings.

I had the ability to see Trout in Milwaukee a few years ago when the Angels visited. I’m gonna try and get down to Wrigley to see him next year, he’s so fun to watch in person. The ball just comes off his bat different. If anyone has the ability to see him play ever I’d highly recommend it.

I planned to have my friends and my annual trip coincide with the Angels for that reason but I can't do it in freezing-ass April.
