    Default Three game exhibition vs Phillies

    What's up with this series to be played April 1,2,3 in Philly prior to opening day? Never saw anything like it before.

    They have the Bay Bridge series out here in the bay between the Giants and the A's where they would play the final 3 exhibition games against each other....they don't do this back home with the Bucs and the Phils?

    It was originally to be the Red Sox but for one reason or another they backed out and the Bucs were contacted to take part.....Thursday in Clearwater. Friday night in Philly on FSN, then a day game Saturday in Philly....I like it. Get em back home quicker and a little taste of a big league ballvyard.

    This is actually something that most northern teams are doing at this point. Rather than staying in Florida then heading home the day before the season starts they go up north to make the travel for the first game shorter and adjust to the temperatures (although that doesn't look like it'll be an issue this year). The last few years it seemed like the Pirates would play the Twins for the last game of ST almost every year, mainly because they were two of the only teams left.

    Actually, (and the reason I put it in here) is that I believe it was Mike Piazza in an exhibition game. We played the Mets in a two game series before The Reds came in to open the place officially.

    They play these every year..not sure why it's a shock or confusing.
