Highlights of the Rangers’ 2007 schedule, released yesterday:

April 2: Open on the road, at Angels

April 6: Open at home, against Boston

May 1-3, 8-10: Only six games all year against Yankees, 10-day span

June 20: Middle game of Cubs’ three-game set at Ameriquest Field; Kerry Wood pitches the eighth

June 23: Middle game of Astros’ three-game set at Ameriquest Field; Carlos Lee hits two home runs

July 12: Off-day coming out of All-Star Break; strange

July 27-August 5: Nine-game road trip to Kansas City, Cleveland, and Toronto; first of two trips of that length, after having five in 2006

July 31: First game of above-mentioned Indians series; big day for Thomas Diamond

September 18: Michael Young gets his 200th hit in Minnesota; Boof Bonser joins a club that now includes Rich Harden, Mark Mulder, Jeff Harris, and Chris Bootcheck

September 28-30: Close the regular season on the road, at Seattle; John Danks wins his seventh game

If it all falls right, the six at Ameriquest Field against Baltimore and the Angels that precede the three season-enders in Seattle won’t be the final home games of the year.
