Dodgers Announce 2014 Schedule


The Dodgers (and all of MLB) announced their 2014 schedule this morning. Here it is in calendar form. Some highlights:

  • As previously announced, the team opens on the road in Australia for two games against the Diamondbacks, March 22-23. Yes, MLB is counting that as "Opening Day," even though the season doesn't start for everyone else until March 31. The two games will be home games for the DBacks because...well...Trent Oeltjen played for them first or something.
  • 2014's interleague opponents (aside from the usual Angels games) come from the AL Central. They'll host the Tigers April 8-9, the White Sox June 2-4, and the Indians June 30-July 2. (Rejoice, Carlos Santana enthusiasts!) Road series include the Twins April 29-May 1 (likely three rainouts), the Royals June 23-25, and the Tigers again July 8-9.
  • The Dodgers open the season proper on the road in San Diego on March 31. The home opener will be April 4 vs. the Giants.
  • For the first time since the inaugural event in 2004, the Dodgers will be in the road for Jackie Robinson Day on April 15. In San Francisco, no less. I don't like that one bit.

What say you, SoSG faithful?

That is one whacked out schedule. Why couldn't the Aussie Games be exhibition like the China Games were a few years back?

The Dodgers in SF for Jackie Day is completely whacked! Dodgers should always be at home to celebrate #42.

Man, I really want to go to those Australia games.

Rainouts? You better hope it's not snow!

I gave them the benefit of the doubt since it's late-April/early-May, but you're probably right.

Away on Jackie Robinson Day is terrible! The Dodgers should wear the home uniforms that day.

Well, it is an opportunity to remind the world that Jackie Robinson decided to retire rather than play for the bitch-ass gnats.
