I clicked radomly on a link at whitesox.com to buy an Ozzie Plan and the screen where you select your 13 games, it showed all the start times. Just thought I'd post this up if anyone was wondering.

That's useful, but it should probably also be pointed out that the schedule shows no Fox or ESPN games, so I expect a lot of the weekend game times will change before the season. Something to keep in mind.

The times are not set in concrete yet, so I would not rely on them 100% yet.

On the Sox website, there are no times for home games and times for a handful of road games.

Yeah, I was talking to the director of database management for the Sox the other day and he said that there is a lot of room for movement for the schedule. He said that once we get to about mid-late Feb. that the numbers should be a bit more reliable.

I am banking on the sox having 2-3 ESPN Sunday night games and at least 3-4 Fox games, mostly Saturdays.

Yea, I'm thinking the Cubs game here will be on ESPN, as well as Boston and the Yankees (both here and there).

Hopefully CSN will be better next year. It was brutal overall this past season watching games on CSN.

Are we still doing the 7:11 thing?

Our schedule doesn't look that bad until mid- may. Perhaps a good opening to the season will be in order.

I just noticed too that that Sox won't have to leave the midwest after a series in Anaheim [May 25-27] until a series in Seattle [August 10-12]. Not bad.

Yeah, that is, I believe a 5 year naming deal with 7-eleven. So it should go through the 2011 season.

Strange to see the Sox games at Wrigley during the week instead of the weekend. I wonder what made them change that...

Me too.

I think its an experiment. If it works, and people are less drunk (I don't know how that could be possibly measured at the Urinal) look for all those games to be played during the week. Especially for the White Sox. Those are guaranteed sellouts. Have them on nights you don't historically get the biggest crowds. The only problem is the weekend split season ticketholders. I'm sure they would be quite pissed if zero Cubs games were in their ticket package.

They would make an adjustment to that deal, where they would throw in a "special" tues, wed, or thursday Cubs/Sox ticket with the packages. They would have to.

It was either they have had travel troubles with this series for this season or they are cutting down on the absolute crush of people that go into the neighborhood for this series. I don't know how that would work seeing as how it is going to really mess up the people who live there and need to get around that week.:scratch:, just wondering how that makes sense.
