The Cubs have released their tentative 2008 schedule
. Some of the highlights:
Interleague Series: Home and Home vs. the White Sox, home versus the Orioles and on the road versus the Blue Jays and Devil Rays. No Yankees or Red Sox which should be a good thing.
Home/Season Opener vs the Milwaukee Brewers and we end the season versus them as well in Milwaukee. Our last two weeks consist of three at home versus the Brewers, three versus the Cardinals and then four on the road at New York and three at Milwaukee.
: Cubs will play two at home versus the Mets in April and then the aforementioned four on the road in September. They do the same thing with the Rockies, two at Colorado in April and four at home in May. They'll play the Phillies and Padres seven times each for some reason.
- They'll get four days off for the All-Star break again.
- They'll be at home versus the Dodgers for Memorial Day and on the road at St. Louis on the Fourth of July.
- Other than the four game set at New York, the entire month of September will be against division rivals.
- Their only trip to see Washington's new stadium will be at the end of April, the weekend of the 25th-27th.
