Giants manager Bochy upset about travel schedules

BY foxsports • June 12, 2015

Giants manager Bruce Bochy was upset on Thursday, but not because his team dropped the series finale against the New York Mets. Before the game Bochy expressed dissatisfaction with the fact that the Giants had to play a night game on the East Coast on a day in which the team had to travel back to San Francisco for a game on Friday. Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News quotes him:

“These are tough travel days,” Bochy said. “I don’t understand it, to be honest, why this isn’t a day game. I think we’re dropping the ball on some of this.”

While MLB rules mandate that East Coast teams playing on the West Coast play an afternoon game on getaway days, the opposite is not true. Although teams flying west may not lose hours the way teams flying east do, it’s certainly not a short trip.
