Have They Ever Been to Chicago in April?

By Blaidd Drwg

Are the schedule makers for MLB really that stupid? Here is a partial list of where opening day is going to take place in 2013:

LA Angels @ Cincy

Boston @ NY Yankees

San Diego @ NY Mets

KC @ Chicago

Detroit @ Minnesota

Seattle @ Oakland

St Louis @ Arizona

Philly @ Atlanta

SF @ LA Dodgers

Colorado @ Milwaukee

Chicago @ Pittsburgh

Miami @ Washington

Baltimore @ TB

Cleveland @ Toronto

For some reason the article did not mention where Texas vs. Houston is going to take place, not that it really matters. My point is the location of some of the openers. What do you want to bet at least half of the games taking place on April 1 & 2 in New York, Chicago, Minnesota, Cincinnati and Pittsburgh get cancelled due to bad weather (or at least get delayed).

I hate the new divisional alignment, I hate seeing interleague play every day and I hate the “unbalanced” balanced schedule. I really think that baseball is about 2 years off from adding the DH to the National League, which might be the only good thing to come of this – I really hate seeing pitchers flail at the ball, or worse yet, not even swing at an incoming pitch.

Don’t even get me started on the Mariners bizarre schedule, that is for a separate post.
