A Good Thing - The 2022 schedule was made public yesterday and the Reds are slated to play a world-record tying 162 games.
The open the season on March 31 against the Cubs and close out on October 1 against the Cubs. They will head into the All-Star break with three against the Cardinals and come out of it with another three against the Cardinals.
The Reds drew the NL East as interleague opponents, travelling to Toronto and New York, hosting the Rays and Orioles, and getting a home-and-home with the Red Sox.
An Ohio Thing - The Guardians have a deal to play baseball at The Jake for the foreseeable future.
The Indians/Guardians and the city of Cleveland have struck an agreement on a 15-year extension of the Progressive Field lease. The deal also includes options for 10 additional years.— Zack Meisel (@ZackMeisel) August 5, 2021
I’ve always liked The Jake as a venue. The mezz area down the first base line is particularly jam and kind of affordable (or at least it was the last time I was there which I’m realizing was probably ten years ago good lord).
Also I think we as a fanbase need to finally come up with a decent nickname for Great American Ballpark. GABP is no kinda nickname. You can’t even say it out loud. The Big Chili Bowl? Sternwheel Station? The Crucible of Skeletons? These are literally three different options.
