    Nice interleague schedule at home with Boston, Tampa and of course Texas while we go to Toronto.

    Open the season in Philly and close with Colorado and St Louis.

    Something interesting, we start on a weekend and end during the week. I guess this is so the playoffs can start on a weekend instead of during the week.

    Sox Fans take over Minute Maid Part II....Is MLB just dumb that they don't schedule the Rangers games on the weekend which would encourage both fan bases to travel?

    It was originally on a rotation, but I guess they got off that a few years ago. Maybe some of the home and away rivalries messed it up.

    Haven't they been weekend series in the past? That said, if I'm MLB, I think the assumption is that those games sell out no matter what, so you can increase total attendance by putting them during the week.

    I thought it was a rotational thing with divisions. Didn't play the Sox this season, but they played TB in May. Strange.

    Nice home interleague schedule that will make some $$$

    Astros are going to be up against it right off the bat.
