The 2014 Angels schedule has been released. YAAAAAAaaaaaayyyy??? Yay, right? We're supposed to be excited about this I think. I'm not entirely sure why. It is just a schedule and it doesn't have any real effect on our lives until nearly six months from now. MLB schedules aren't even inherently all that different from year to year nor is there is wildly varying degree of difficulty from one team's schedule to another. Honestly, I don't know why anyone really cares.
That being said, the 2013 Angels have all of the suck and I can only write so much about just how hard they suck, so screw it. Let's take a look at the schedule and make pithy remarks about it. What? Like you have something better to do?
- Apparently the MLB schedule makers are feeling poetic as they have the Angels start at home against Seattle then finish on the road against Seattle. What a lovely set of bookends.
- The first 12 games of the season are against Seattle (who will probably be bad again), Houston (who will definitely be bad again) and the Mets (who are the Mets and thus will be bad). That is a great slate to start the season because I'm betting that someone will finally inform the Angels prior to the 2014 season that games in April actually matter. That has kind of been an issue the last few years, so good thing they have an opportunity to beat up on some lousy team... or get beat up on by some lousy teams.
- TROUT VS. HARPER. OH MY GAAWWWWWWD! Yes, finally after years of national columnists trying to bait us into a rivalry that doesn't exist, Trout and Harper will actually play against each other. I look forward to the forthcoming needless debate over who will have a better career.no comments
