Good one in Texas. Cody Allen gave up back to back doubles to lead off the inning with a 4-2 lead. And Odor just missed a walkoff HR hooked foul

Why do a bunch of teams have a day off between their opener and second games? It seems stupid.

I think because of sketchy April weather. I think they always screw up the early season schedule. Early April should always be in domes or warm weather if at all possible.

I would imagine so that opening day tickets have 2 shots at being good for opening day if the weather is sketchy

it's also to throw off the uneven division schedule and to make travel days work.

Does every team play the same number of series? The same number of home/away?

not necessarily the same number of series, but same number of home/away yes. 18 against each team in the same division too.

I think it used to be like this, but those warm weather/dome teams complained about lost attendance because kids aren't out of school.

re: MLB Season Thread 2017

I don't understand how a bunch of "experts" can predict the Astros to be in the W.S. when they Charlie Morton as the #3 starter. Also, how the **** do you rack up 19 balks in a season?

Why are you calling Charlie Morton their #3 starter?

Because he's starting the 3rd game of the season. Yes I know Mchugh is on the DL, but that's kind of my point.

re: MLB Season Thread 2017

Max Scherzer is starting the Nationals' fourth game of the season. Is he their #4 starter?

McHugh is also making a AAA rehab start this week and has thrown 150+ innings for each of the last 3 years (180+ for the last two). Pretty weird to be criticizing a WS prediction for anything involving his health.

No, but it isn't a great sign. Just like Morton pitching in the 3rd game of the season isn't a positive thing.
