I'll take this Advantage......

Recommended Posts

While looking at the Angels schedule for the rest of the season and also the Astros schedule I was able to realize a nice advantage that for the Angels (and anyone who travels with the team) players have over the Astros team/players.

Angels Allstar player schedule

7/12 - 7/14 Astros at home
7/15 - 7/16 Dodgers at home (Fri/Sat)

7/19 Allstar game Dodger Stadium

7/22 - 7/24 Braves in Atlanta

Only 1 time zone change from Thursday 7/14 (Pacific Time) to a week later for the travel day to Atlanta (Eastern Time)

Astros Allstar Player schedule (same dates above)

7/12 - 7/14 Angels in Anaheim
7/15 - 7/17 Oakland in Houston

7/19 Allstar game Dodger Stadium

7/21 Yankees Doubleheader in Houston
7/22 - 7/24 Mariners in Seattle

That is 4 time zone changes (2 hrs each change) from Thursday 7/14 (Pacific Time) to a week later for the travel to Seattle (Pacific Time)

That also is 4 plane flights to play each set of games

For the Non Allstar players

Angels - 4 days off Sunday through Wednesday with Travel day on Thursday

Astros - still 2 time changes before/after Allstar game and 2 flights

I'd say for the Angels players who make the Allstar team they will have a nice advantage over the Astros Allstars.

Even the Non Allstar players from the Angels will enjoy more "off time" than the Astros players.
