Some 2007 MLB Schedules Released
Schedules are tentative, incomplete, and subject to change.
The odd thing is seeing the AL East playing the NL West, and yet the Yankees don't seem to be scheduled against either the Padres OR the Dodgers now. More on that below.
Anyway, for other teams:
Also what happened that caused the Padres to cancel their Yankees series?
Padres Press Release:
Padres 2007 home schedule changes
New slate includes series with Red Sox, Yankees series replaced with set against Orioles
SAN DIEGO -- Major League Baseball has altered the Interleague matchups for 2007, resulting in the following changes to the San Diego Padres 2007 home schedule:
The Padres will host the Baltimore Orioles on June 19, 20 and 21. The games on Tuesday the 19th and Wednesday the 20th will be 7:05 p.m. starts, while the series finale on Thursday the 21st will be a 12:35 p.m. game. This matchup replaces the previously-scheduled series against the New York Yankees on these dates.
Why? No reason given. Now it seems the Yankees will play at San Francisco, Colorado and... Houston. There must have been some backroom deal to make this change, because it makes no sense whatsoever for the Orioles and Red Sox to play one set of teams and the Yankees another. Bud Selig wanted to reward fans in other cities every few years by bringing in the other league. I'm sure the fans in Colorado appreciate the return of the Yankees after only 2 years, and the fans in San Francisco don't have to make that long, arduous drive to Oakland this year, while the fans in San Diego have to be content that the Yankees played at Qualcomm stadium in 2002.
