You are an Auburn fan.  Just coming at you as a UGA fan but the article was on point.  Is there a way I can see articles as soon as they are published.  You caught my eye with the well written article and the knowledge in the article.

I don't know. Just check out the site from time to time I guess. But thanks for the feedback.

Thanks for the monthly breakdown on home vs away games.

No problem. I had never broken down that part before so I was interested in how it shakes down. I like that the Braves have a lot of home games in the 2nd half of the season. It means less travel which is easier on teams later in the season.

I was looking more in depth at the Braves schedule today and noticed some weirdness in their divisional scheduling.

MIAMI MARLINS

  • The Marlins don't play their first game in Atlanta until June 16th. June 16th is the Braves 67th game of the season.
  • The first 5 games in Miami, next 10 in Atlanta, last 4 in Miami.

NEW YORK METS

  • The first 6 games in New York, next 10 in Atlanta, last 3 in New York.

PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES

  • The Phillies don't play their first game in Atlanta until June 5th. June 5th is the Braves 57th game of the season.
  • The Braves play just one series against the Phillies in the first two months of the season. Series in Philadelphia from April 21st-23rd.
  • The Braves have just one series against the Phillies in September, series in Atlanta from the 22nd-24th.

WASHINGTON NATIONALS

  • The Braves don't play their first game in Washington until June 12th. That's the Braves 54th game of the season.
  • Less than 1 month later the Braves are back in Washington for a 4-game series on July 6th. Just stupid. Then the Braves don't see the Nationals at all until September 12th.
  • First 6 games in Atlanta, next 10 in Washington, last 3 in Atlanta.
