There is just under one month left in the 2019 MLB regular season, but 2020 schedule already was released Monday morning.
Here is the A's full tentative schedule for next season:
The start to the season won't be easy for the A's next year. Oakland starts 2020 with seven straight home games, but each is against current division leaders -- the Minnesota Twins and Houston Astros. The A's then hit the road to face the Twins in Minnesota and the Angles in Los Angeles.
After a daunting start at home to open the season, the A's then welcome the Yankees and Red Sox to Oakland two weeks later as part of a 10-game homestand. Fans will see some big names right away, but it won't be easy on the field.
The A's went 14-18 this season between March and April. Rosters will change in the offseason, but right now, it could be a tall task to have a better record than that to start next season.
What you've all been waiting for, though, is the Bay Bridge Series.
The A's won't face the Giants until June 6 when they welcome the Giants to Oakland for two games. The rivalry will continue one month later on July 7 for two more games at Oracle Park.
Even if the A's have trouble with their tough start to the season, they always can keep their eyes on winning The Bridge.
