Looking over the schedule, you naturally see some match ups on the Phillies 2014 schedule that really interest you.
The Phillies start off 2014 on the road, they open up in Texas on the last day of March against Yu Darvish and the Rangers. Then they fly into Wrigley for a three game series before coming home to open up CBP on Monday, April 7, at 3:05 PM against the Milwaukee Brewers.
Opening Day is always one of the games a lot of fans look forward to seeing, and the Brewers just signed Matt Garza, so perhaps we’ll be facing him during one of the games against the Brewers.
Right after the first three games at CBP, the Phillies welcome in the Marlins and Braves for the NL East rivalry that we’re looking forward to. The Braves were really good last year, will they keep it up in 2014?
The Phils hit the road for a west coast road trip in mid-April and go visit the Rockies, Dodgers, and Dbacks. LA have really retooled for a bigger and better run in 2014, the first series with LA should be a real test for this Phillies team in the middle of April. If the Phils do anything this year, they will have to beat teams like the Dodgers.
The Phillies don’t play the NY Mets for the first time until the end
of April, on the 29th and 30th in Philadelphia. There should be a better
rivalry this season against the Mets, they have signed the exciting
Curtis Granderson and have a few other players that are expected to help
them out this year.
Right after the short two game
series with the Mets at home, we welcome in the Washington Nationals and
Jayson Werth for the first time, the Nationals have become good rivals
of the Phillies in recent years and this series will be on that a lot of
fans look forward to seeing.
Two of the biggest games of the early season will have to be the Angels coming to Philly for a short two game series, and of course Mike Trout, who is from Millville, NJ will be a main attraction at the game. The Phillies will honor Millville Night for one of those games, and a lot of the people that were instrumental in Mike’s early career will be there.
So tell us, what series are you looking forward to seeing?
