The Royals will play Colorado, Houston, Washington, Atlanta, and Cincinnati in interleague play.
The Cardinals will open 2010 on the road in Cincinnati and then travel to Milwaukee before coming home on April 12 th against Houston. So, Tony LaRussa, who likes quick starts in April will take on three division rivals right off the bat.
The Cubs only make it to St. Louis twice next season, but at least they come after the All-Star break. The first series is August 13-15, and the second is exactly a month later in September. Make your vacation plans for Chicago and Wrigley Field. St. Louis takes three trips to the Windy City.
