    From Elias: The toughest and easiest “second-half” schedules, based on combined winning percentage for remaining opponents and weighted by number of games: Toughest: Orioles (.533), Athletics (.521), Mariners (.521), Marlins (.520), Rays (.517) Easiest: Tigers (.474), Brewers (.479), Giants (.480), Diamondbacks (.483), Pirates (.484)

      I love our schedule this 2nd half.

      Last year, that 2nd half schedule buried us. We faced all juggernauts during a 35 game stretch to start off the 2nd half. Boston, NY, TB twice, LA, Texas, and CHW twice. We went 10-25 during that slide.
