Good. That means if they are playing well, they get a lot of easy games the second half.

How many days does Robert (and I guess Madrigal) have to stay in the minors to get that extra year of control? It's 11 right? So his MLB debut could be at home against Seattle on April 6th?

Sold out March 26th, 6 people the 28th sound about right?

The first weekend home series usually draws pretty well since people want to get out of their houses and do something after sitting inside for about 4-5 months.

Yeah so judging by the schedule, they could debut during the Seattle series, but I have a feeling they'll wait until Friday 4/10 against the Twins

So if they did call him up that Monday, he would only be missing 9 games. And I would bet 2 of those games being played at a later date.

Ton of off days in July, that makes sense. 

What do you want to have happen? Have teams in warm areas and teams with retractable roofs and domes host the first month of the season?

Besides starting the schedule while there still snow falling the schedule is pretty balanced and somewhat favorable to the Sox. That 2nd half isn't bad at all.

Sox play 63 games before they play the Tigers, then play them 16 out of 45 games, then not again until they finish the season in Detroit. 

All in all, it's not a terrible schedule. Only one 3-city trip.

Weather? You never know. Hopefully some of the teams the Sox face, they have a lot of shared off days just in case.

August could be absolutely brutal in terms of who they're playing. 

Yeah, August looks brutal.

It would also be asking the warm market teams to give up their most valuable mid-summer dates to help out teams from colder climates, being on the road in July and home in April, which they don't want to do.

September is no picnic either with the exception of the Royals and Tigers series.

It really could set up for a decent record going into August, and then a gradual fade away. But stuff happens- bad teams become good (hopefully us); good teams get injured and play bad.

But yeah, the last two months will be challenging.

Further destroying the argument that Robert and Madrigal should be up now or for 2020 opening day.  You don’t lose a full year of control over 9 or less games.
