Cubs 2009 Schedule

It's available at cubs.com, and the Cubs will open the season on the road at Houston on April 6th and open up Miller Park that Friday. They start the home season on Monday, April 13th versus the Colorado Rockies.

June looks pretty tough, with just one nine-game homestand and 17 on the road. They'll play their interleague schedule that month versus the AL Central, including home games versus the Twins, White Sox and Indians and then three on the road versus both Detroit and the White Sox. For the first time that I can recall, they play a series versus the White Sox in the middle of the week, although the second match-up at Comiskey (still Comiskey to me) is on the weekend.

They make up those home games in July with 16 at home and nine on the road. They finish the season with six at home versus Pittsburgh and Arizona. That will be right after a 10-game road trip to St. Louis, Milwaukee and San Francisco. They also travel to San Diego twice next season, April and August.

Comments

I'm pretty sure the schedule has been up at Cubs.com since October. MLB actually released everyones at the same time, instead of having them trickle out via each team over a couple of months.

And there are still two WSox series. They play at Wrigley mid-week (June 16-18) and then at the Cell the following weekend (Jun 26-28)

thanks for the Wsox catch...fixed.

if it was posted earlier, I missed every single one of those stories and comments. 

Its a balanced schedule. Not one month that pops out as too brutal or too easy. Why you really cant settle it in stone until the off-season is over. It looks like May is the easiest. Even in June are road games are the Braves (I think they will be around a .500 team) Reds ( I think they will be the NL surprise team this year, so that could be tough) Houston (It looks like they want to shed payroll so they could be one of the worse teams, if they suffer a bad injury), Tigers (I think they will bounce back and win the AL Central) Wsox (see Houston).

Reds- "will be the NL surprise team this year, so that could be tough"

I believe for the third year running. So it shouldn't be that big of a surprise.

If they get Harang and Bailey going I could see them being competitive, but that offense looks pretty weak without Dunn and Griffey.

Supposedly the Reds traded Bailey to the WSox for Jermaine Dye. I thought Bailey was a big time prospect and Jermaine Dye was an old outfielder, but what do I know?

yesterday's news cycle and already debunked by Jocketty who said he hasn't talked to the White Sox since Thanksgiving.

Hal McCoy got the story wrong...

They were discussing trading Dye for a bottle of Bailey's Irish Cream

Shorty Rosenthal now says Phillies might be the 3rd team in the Peavy thang...

  • Brian Matusz, supposedly he has attachments. Hope it's not like an email with a virus attached.

  • One thing to remember about Chapman -- he can be magic, but his ERA is higher than Rondon's this year. 100+ mph is fun, but I'd love to see a few more sliders. I think he enjoys the crowd reaction from 103 mph.

  • "Diamondbacks designated RHP Josh Collmenter for assignment."

    aww...he was my 2nd favorite crapballer. his control issues are rather severe at the moment.

  • Wow -- Chapman gives up a hit and everything completely caves in. I think the Cubs went into collective shock.

    Stolen base with the pitcher holding the ball, WP that should have been caught or blocked, then Russell with a 2-out error on a routine play. Cubs handed them 2 runs. Throw in a Fowler bobble and it was a mess.

    Hopefully, that is all out of their system now -- let's get a W tomorrow.

  • First time I've ever seen a base running slump -- he's made some poor decisions recently, but I thought it was a great idea to try to score there -- it's not like Heyward was going to get a 2-out hit against a LHP. Sliding feet-first into home is probably the safe (ugh) way to go, but it's hard to get the foot on the plate.

  • Yup. He got squeezed (twice) on the first walk, but, when you have one-run lead and the other team is trying to make an out -- take the out.

  • Clearly the Cubs need to clear out the farm and trade for another closer

    Where's Ed Lynch when you need him?
