Falconsfan567 Posted September 13, 2012 Share Posted September 13, 2012 The 2013 preliminary schedule has been announced. MLB is ditching the midweek start to the season, which they have done the last 2 seasons, and is going back to a Monday start to the season with the SNB ESPN game the day before. Who will be featured in that game has yet to be determined.Monday April 1st, 2013 is the start of the regular season.Angels at RedsRed Sox at YankeesPadres at MetsRoyals at White SoxTigers at TwinsMariners at AthleticsPhillies at BravesCardinals at DiamondbacksGiants at DodgersRockies at BrewersCubs at PiratesMarlins at NationalsTeams slated to start their seasons on Tuesday April 2nd, 2013 areRangers at AstrosOrioles at RaysIndians at Blue Jays11 of the 15 final series of the season, Sept. 27-29, are slated to feature divisional matchups with the exceptions being the Yankees at Astros, Brewers at Mets, Tigers at Marlins and Nationals at Diamondbacks.Here is how the schedule is put together.19 divisional games = 766 or 7 games against each of the other teams in your league = 6620 interleague games (spread over 8 series) = 2076 + 66 + 20 = 162Rivalry games such as the White Sox-Cubs, Dodgers-Angels and Mets-Yankees will play in consective 2-game series in each team's stadium on 4 consecutive days during the week of May 27th.http://www.cbssports.com/mlb/story/20164566/reds-to-play-host-to-the-angels-in-baseballs-first-interleague-season-openerIt's nice to see the Braves open the season at home. Every year since 2005 the Braves have opened the season on the road except 2010 when they opened at home against the Cubs. Speaking of the Cubs the Braves second series of the season is in Atlanta against the Cubs.Here's the whole 2013 MLB schedule.http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/schedule/?tcid=mm_mlb_schedule#date=04/01/2013 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
