-Home opener March 30 vs Pittsburgh
-Interleague play against AL East. Red Sox, Rays and Orioles come to Wrigley. Cubs go to Baltimore, Yankees and Blue Jays
- 10 of last 12 at home including 3 game series against St. Louis to end season
- London games vs. St. Louis are June 13-14. Cubs will play in Philly and have 2 off days beforehand and 1 after to travel back home to face Mets

So STL loses two home games? I thought both the Cubs and Cards would each lose one.

@ BAL and @ WAS would be a fun stretch if it wasn't the middle of April

It looks like it went from being a 10-9 split for St. Louis to 9-8 Cubs.

Third year in a row we have Pittsburgh in the home opener. Also third year in a row we finish the season vs. the Cardinals.

Fifth year in a row Cubs start the season on the road.

The off days are very well spread out. At least 3 in every month.

Also, we have an off day on Memorial Day? What?

July 4th is a home game on a Saturday. If they make it a night game like in 2015 we could have fireworks again. That was fun.

Am I wrong or outside of this year do the Cubs seemingly always get the Nationals in 4 game series'?

It'll be a makeup game by the time it comes around. There are only 11 games scheduled that day. Lots of teams are off, including the Brewers.

Pretty balanced schedule, no really light stretches but no brutal ones either. *Maybe* mid April through Mid May if the Padres do a bunch this winter?

Idiotic. Not let’s give every team a couple Friday’s off dumb but still, they inevitably do stuff like this every year

it's def dumb when playing at a park where weather is a non issue.

i completely get why they do it at wrigley and the other places, though (so it totally makes sense that they're not doing one next year)

I like that the AL East team we get 4 games against is the Orioles.

I get why they do it. It's still dumb to get half of baseball fans engaged and enthusiastic about the new season just to slap them in the face with an immediate off day.

Now if the would just stop the inane “cross town classic”, except every three year cycle, that would be great.

Always hate wasting a off day between coming or going to St Louis or Milwaukee and having off days right before or after the All-Star break.

Dislike how they handled our trips out West. They have us in finishing up a trip in LA on the 6th of May and then we have to go back to SD for one series a week later, then we go from SD to Pittsburgh. We get a off day to go to St Louis, but no off day to go from there to SF or from SF back home.
