The Long and Winding Road

That is truly bizarre. They have exhibition games FOLLOWING the openers? I don't believe I've ever heard of a team doing that before.

The Yankees and Rays both did that when they returned to FLA in 2004 after their games in Japan, so it is not unheard of, Suldog.

But playing before 115,000 in the LA Coliseum on March 29 really will be truly bizarre!
