The Yankees would open up in Boston
according to the tentative schedule released by MLB.
Why do two cold-weather teams play each other in the first week of the season? The Yankees also close with the Red Sox.
I’m sure this will be interpreted as some sort of conspiracy against the Yankees orchestrated by ESPN, John Henry and Peter Gammons. But in the end, schedules usually balance out one way or another.
Unless you know for sure how how good or bad every team will be in 2010, there is not much sense complaining about it.
Worry about next year when it comes. Enjoy 2009, it’s pretty special.
And think about this: You the Red Sox are thrilled to open and close with the Yankees? I’m guessing not. Location with those teams usually doesn’t much matter.
