With the 2018 schedule being released yesterday, what are the unique takeaways from the Washington Nationals schedule?
The Washington Nationals are still making a run at the World Series in 2017, but Major League Baseball gave us a look as to what next year might bring. Yesterday, the 2018 schedule was announced for all 30 teams. There were hardly any times given, but the dates are set.
While the MLB schedule unveiling doesn’t get as much fanfare compared to the NFL schedule, it still allows fans to plan out visits to certain ballparks months in advance. Of course, the interleague opponents rotate every three years, but there is still that small bit of excitement.
Due to the new collective bargaining agreement, everybody is going to start on the same date next season. On March 28, the Washington Nationals will begin the 2018 campaign at Great American Ballpark against the Cincinnati Reds. Usually, you will see Opening Day on a Sunday or Monday, but next year, it is on a Thursday.
Yes, no one knows which teams are going to be great or mediocre next year right now, However, there is always the chance of player reunions. For example, Ian Desmond was not healthy for Colorado’s trip to D.C. this season, so he maybe he starts for the Rockies next April and gets a standing ovation at the plate.
Today, we are going to bring you five unique takeaways from this year’s schedule. Also, we want to hear from you on which games you are excited to go to next year. Let us know in the comments section below.
