Thoughts on the 2016 Red Sox schedule, which was released on Tuesday afternoon.

The Red Sox open in Cleveland on Monday, April 4 before heading to Toronto for a three-game set.

The home opener is Monday, April 11 against the Orioles, and highlights an April heavy on division play. By the end of the month, the Red Sox will have faced every division foe at least once, and the Blue Jays twice.

The Red Sox get the NL West in interleague play, which means trips to San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego, and visits from Colorado, San Francisco, and Arizona. That means three West Coast trips next season, including a killer 11-game trek through Anaheim, Seattle, and Los Angeles from July 28-Aug. 7.

The second half of the season is shaping up to be a travel bear, with a quartet of three-city road trips. By comparison, the Red Sox only had three such trips scheduled all season this year.

The Red Sox had best make hay through August, because they’ll be ending the season on the road. Just 10 of their final 29 games will be at Fenway, beginning Sept. 1 with a West Coast swing through Oakland and San Diego.

They finish the season with 23 games in 24 days against division rivals, closing out the season on Oct. 2 against Toronto.Boston Herald
