No one posted this yet, so I thought I would:
I love opening and closing at home! It spreads out the homestands so that the season seems to last a bit longer for those of us who have season tickets.
The interleague games aren't very nice. We host Washington again this season (WTF?), as wells as Arizona, and of course, Milwaukee. The Twins will visit Colorado, Milwaukee, and San Diego in the NL.
The Twins ticket sales department will like this: The Twins will host the Yankees twice this season. There's a 3-game series Friday, May 30th through Sunday, June 1st. The other series is another 3-gamer Monday, August 11th through Wednesday, August 13th (in the middle of the pennant races). The Twins also host the Red Sox for a 4-game, weekend series Friday, May 9th through Monday, May 12th (No, it's not Memorial Day.).
Unfortunately, the Twins won't have any home, weekend series against the White Sox or Angels. We do get to see Cleveland and Detroit in the dome twice on weekends, though.
Ugh, I can't wait for March 31st against the Angels...
