Turnin' Up the Offseason Heat
By Dan O'Donnell
A day after the Brewers announced their intention to retain skipper Ned Yost for the upcoming season, Major League Baseball has released the team's tentative 2008 schedule.
The Crew will open the year at Wrigley Field on March 31st and close it out with a home series against the Cubs starting September 26th. Guess which two teams the schedule-makers think will be fighting for the NL Central again next season?
Some other highlights include a trip to Fenway to play the Sawx May 16th, an interleague homestand against the Twins, Blue Jays, and Orioles starting June 13th, and a September that sees the Crew play 16 of 26 games at home.
Start the countdown, fans, because pitchers and catchers report in t-minus 4 months.
