Is it me, or do the Cubs seem to always be one of the National League teams that gets one NL series per year when interleague is going on?

It's you.

It's to provide them with the extra rest they need to have any chance to wrestle a game or two away from when they face the mighty Chicago White Sox.

Houston, Washington, San Francisco, and San Diego play 18 interleague games.

The other 12 NL teams play 15 interleague games.


As far as the American League, based on winning percentage so far this year, the Indians have the easiest interleague schedule, and the Rays have the hardest.

Hopefully the Reds will help us out more this weekend.

From the Soriano getting booed thread:

I realize that. I guess I had it backwards.

Every AL team plays 6 interleague series this year. All the NL teams except the Padres and Nationals will only play 5.

This is simply because of the fact that there has to be two NL teams playing each other 6 of those weekends. 6*2 = 12 teams.

I guess there hasn't been a year when the Cubs have been one of those 2 NL teams that gets stuck playing 6 series instead of 5.

This has already been discussed.
