  • Sox New Schedule

    For what it's worth!

    10 against each division opponent, with 7 home against the Twins and Tigers, 7 away against the Indians & Royals.

    6 (split) against the Cubs, 4 (split) vs Brewers, 3 (away) against the Reds, 3 (home, but one in Iowa) against Cardinals.

    I would rather have seen 3 Cub games and 1 Brewer game allocated to the division opponents, with a more even home-road split and no chance of splitting the season series, but it's OK.

      This is a pretty easy schedule all things considered. Sox totally avoid playing the elite teams of MLB. (No offense to the Indians, Twins, or Cubs, probably the three best teams we play but a tier below NYY/LAD/HOU).

      EDIT: Jesus, of the 14 teams that Fangraphs thinks are better than the Sox, the Sox only play 3 of them in the regular season.

          Starting off with the Twins. Jumping into the fire right away.

          Possible spoilers to the Cubs' post season dreams. Nice.

            It looks like a couple of exhibition games against the Cubs to start things off, and then finishing the season at home against the Cubs.

              Can only imagine how this city would be if there were significant playoff implications for either team going into that series.

                If we could go to the games, or pack bars, it would be different. Given current circumstances, it's not going to be what we're all used to.

                  Yeah, the crowd would be electric. Oh wait....

                    Wondering if MLB is actually hoping they might be able to allow fans by then. With Illinois doing well they might be looking at that as a chance to blow the roof off the season in style.

                      I work in the live events and convention industry. Our understanding is that the governor isn't going to allow any public functions of this nature in any capacity to have attendees until Phase 5.

                        Yeah, I'm not expecting it to happen, merely thinking MLB might be eyeing it as a possibility. Crossing their fingers and hoping as it were. Regardless of that though, the TV ratings would be through the roof if both teams are in the playoff hunt.

                          Somebody did not get the memo to the Chicago Dogs. They have fans at their games. Outdoor venues in Illinois are allowed 20% capacity. My wife works in the industry, too,

                            Phase four allows for gatherings of 50 persons or less. I don't know what the Dogs capacity is, but it would seem they are violating the governor's order. https://coronavirus.illinois.gov/s/r...linois-phase-4

                            Theaters and such are being guided by the department of health on safe capacities on a case by case basis. I'm not sure what deal the Dogs may have made, but it goes against what the governor has publicly stated - that large events, conventions, concerts and sporting events would not be permitted to have attendees until phase 5.

                            If you scroll to phase 5, it's explicit about large events being allowed then. I'd have a hard time believing that major league baseball games don't fit under that umbrella...and if they don't, the state is opening itself up to all sorts of lawsuits for playing favoritism.

                              Phase four also says this, which I guess overrides the 50 person thing (or I guess the assumption is that there's still a 50 person thing for EACH GROUP, but the venue can have more?)

                              'Outdoor seated spectator events: Outdoor spectator sports can resume with no more than 20% of seating capacity; concessions permitted with restrictions.'

                              The issue with sports in Chicago having any people is the city at this point, not the state. I did read that Wrigley rooftops plan to be open...
