The Next 19

I think its okay to be a little excited that we finished April 10-10. Its okay to be excited that we are getting the King back this week. But we need to temper that enthusiasm a little bit, beucase we just went 5-1 against Texas, Oakland and KC, all teams below the .500 mark.

Our next 19 games are against the following opponents: Chicago, Boston, New York, LA, Detroit, San Diego. That's 4 playoff teams from last year, the 2005 World Series Champs and the team with the best record in baseball.

The only saving grace is that we get the Yankees for 7 games and they are struggling, with a record of 9-14. But no one expects them to play that way for long.

The 19 game stretch opens with a two game set against Chicago, a one day stay in Boston, then 4 in Yankee Stadium. At one point they will play 3 games in 3 days in 3 different cities! The M's are going to have some more weird scheduling issues like that in order to make up the 6 games they have lost to weather so far. Neat.

Again, we should enjoy being .500 for as long as we can. Who knows how long it will last?
