2016 SF Giants schedule released

New, 206 comments

It's a tentative schedule, and apparently the Giants have a bunch of games against the Padres? Weird.

The tentative 2016 Giants schedule was released by the team on Tuesday, and the rumors are all true: The Giants will play a lot of baseball games. They'll open in Milwaukee, marking the seventh straight season they've opened on the road. The Giants' last Opening Day at home was a 2009 win against the Brewers.

Here's the schedule, with some notes at the bottom:

Longest road trip: 10 games (September 1 through 11)

Weirdest stretch: Six games off in 11 days around the All-Star Break, including a two-game series in Boston that's sandwiched between two off days.

Toughest month: Hard to say, considering that last year at this time the Astros looked like a fun team to play. But September has a four-game series in Wrigley followed by a trip to Coors Field, with a four-game Cardinals series and seven games against the Dodgers mixed in. Gulp.

Pablo Sandoval: Coming here on June 7 and June 8. We all feel sorry for him by this point, right?

Holidays: Fourth of July at home, with Memorial Day and Labor Day on the road.

Weekend home Dodgers series: Three of them, baby. That was a weird omission this year.

Does the year end in an even number?: Hell yes. You'll know when Kurt Ainsworth shuts the Dodgers down in that final game of the season to win the division.

There you have it, the provisional 2016 schedule. It sure looks like the Giants will play a lot of baseball games again.
