Schedule Breakdown

The 2006 Boston Red Sox schedule was announced a few months ago, and we have yet to take an inside look at the West Coast road trips, long home stands or key September series that awaits. So let

  1. Well, when you consider the scheduling (1 day off in an entire month, which is ludicrous), and the umpiring choices for the ALDS (all umpires were in the top 10 or so of pro-pitching stats), it was an interesting end of the season for us. The players didn't get it done on the field, but considering what they had to go through, I can't blame them too much.
    God, that scheduling was horrible last year.

  2. The Red Sox are currently in a 4-year streak of winning 90+ games a season. Only once before in the history of the franchise have the Red Sox done that: that was from 1914-1917. So needless to say, another 90+ win season this year would put the Sox in uncharted territory: the most successful 5-year span in the long history of Red Sox baseball.

  3. We can just pray we don't get hurt like last year, with the 28 or so games in a row. Absolutely ridiculous; by the end of it virtually the entire team was dead.
    I still say we win the division by a couple games if it weren't for that torturous stretch. Also, I have Monster seats for the 9/9 game, so I'm happy about that.

    I'm the furthest thing from a paranoid conspiracy theorist, but that was the most unfair bit of scheduling I've ever witnessed. I still think the team would have been too tired to go far in the post-season, but it would have stopped Yankee fans from claiming to "own" the AL East.

  5. I just read these comments, grunherz. Is that Yankee guy really trying to hang onto the fact that the Yankees have "owned" the AL East because they won 4 titles? Exactly how far ago was that?
