Let’s look into the Red Sox schedule a little, eh? At least teams in the same division only play each other 13 times instead of 19.

They also have a 9-game road trip out to the west coast. They are scheduled for just 3 days off during a 41-day stretch the end of July ‘til the second week in September.
