    Tigers have long West Coast trip early in season: A's, Mariners, Angels. #Tigers
    Chris Iott ‏@Chris_Iott

    First interleague series for the Tigers: April 26-28, vs. Atlanta Braves at Comerica Park. #Tigers
    Due to the Astros it will be really interesting to see how the schedule does end up with the Interleague Series.

    No Rockies or Diamondbacks? I guess MLB is really giving a big phoooey to traditional rivalries.

    How about the 4 game stretch with the Pirates, 2 in Detroit and 2 in Pittsburgh? I remember seeing schedules like that from the early/mid 70s.

    The most bizarre part of the schedule is that they don't play the White Sox until July 9 and then play 14 of their next 31 games against the White Sox.

    Starting the season in Minnesota? On April 1? It's like MLB is hoping for a snow-out or something.

    38 away & 38 home games against the AL Central (10/9, or 9/10 against each team).
    16 away & 16 home games against the AL East (6 or 7 games against each team).
    17 away & 17 home games against the AL West (6 or 7 games against each team).
    8 away & 8 home against the NL East (3 against 4 teams, and 4 against Washington).
    2 away & 2 home against the NL Central (all 4 against Pittsburgh).
    0 games against the NL West.

    Personally I'd rather do:
    9 away & 9 home against each AL Central team (72 games).
    3 away & 3 home against each AL East & AL West team (60 games).
    3 away games against 5 NL teams and 3 home games against 5 NL teams (30 games against 10 different NL teams). These interleague games can be rotated year-to-year, play the NL Central & NL East one year, play the NL Central & NL West the next year, etc.

    I like that they have finally embraced Pittsburgh as our traditional rival for interleague.

    I wouldn't mind if they were in a four team group with the Ohio teams, playing both Pitt and cincy each year, but I guess they want to preserve the battle of Ohio. It's just that cincy is closer to Detroit than Pitt, and Pitt is about the same distance away from Cleveland as cincy is.

    I like that the Tigers only have one west coast trip and they get it out of the way in April.

    I like this schedule, it's different. The multi-city trips are more even in 2013 with multi-series home stands. This year the Tigers had 5 trips of three cities, but only had 2 homestands of at least three series. Next year it's and even four and four.

    April - 9 games in 10 days
    June/July - 11 games in 11 days (3-4-4 ouch)
    August - 10 games in 10 days
    September - 9 games in 10 days

    Great observation from Twitter on potential negative to playing Miami in Miami to finish the 2013 season:

    Jason Beck ‏@beckjason

    Agreed. RT @mdjaxon: @beckjason Tigers losing DH for the last 3 games next year. That could be HUGE if the race is as close as this year.

    And leading into that final series, the tigers will have had the benefit of an additional three games with the DH relative to the rest of the AL. It's their own fault if they didn't take advantage.

    Yeah, I heard an interview with Rob Neyer today and he mentioned that he didn't think the DH would change anytime soon. I know that there hasn't been much chatter about it lately. I just have a hunch that if baseball does in fact address September expanded rosters, they might try to tackle the DH as well. And I think that with the DH becoming less of a highly paid nondefense old guy type, teams that would have been against adding that extra salary (as the theory goes anyway) would be more inclined to accept it. Also, if they do decide to go one way or another, I think teams would have an easier time including the DH in thier short/long term plans rather than getting rid of it.

    Personally, I fall on the side of having Ps hit, but I'd be fine with the DH in both leagues.

    I kind of like it the way it is. I like that the AL and NL are distinct leagues and have never cared for interleague play. The different rules help keep the leagues separate.

    I've not been much for interleague play either. But it isn't going to go away. Because of that, I'd like to see the rules be the same across the leagues. The way it is now would be like having a 3 point line 2 feet shorter in half of the NBA while the other half of the NBA kept it where it is now. (Now that I think about it, I suppose one could argue the different dimensions from ballpark to ballpark is somewhat similar.)

    Is the DH really the only thing keeping the league separate? The league offices were combined into the MLB offices several years ago were they not?

    All Saturday home games are 7pm start times with the exception of July 27 against Philly (3pm). Does anybody know if FOX has changed their national games to 7pm opposed to 4pm? I haven't been able to find anything online.

    Well isn't that swell of them. A whole 2 appearances for the team that made it to the WS and had the TC/MVP/BPITL in the middle of the line up.

    Fine by me. The less I have to turn my TV to ESPN, the better.
    My neighbor thinks I'm following or even stalking her, she is worried that I may be obsessed with her and any time she hears a noise in her house she is...purified? Oh, wait: petrified. Sorry, it's not easy reading a diary through binoculars from a tree.

    They have only released the first 11 dates...through May. The Tigers will get more ESPN games.

    The driving distance to Cinncy or Pittsburgh is just over 4 hours from Detroit, it is just about the same.

    I like Cinncy better though, Pittsburgh is an ugly town, nice ball park though.

    No union rep will ever let the DH disappear from the AL. Such a move could likely cause a drop in the average player salary. More likely, both leagues will have the DH some day, but I would nopt hold my breath.

    Darn ESPN. We're going to be in Dallas that weekend and planned to hit up the Rangers game in the afternoon and fly out in the evening. Looks like we'll have to stay an extra night.
