A test begins
There are always some sizable obstacles and tests during the course of a 162-game season, and this 11-game, 11-day road trip through Chicago (4 games), New York (3 games) and Philadelphia (4 games) heading into the All-Star break certainly qualifies.
Does anyone care to guess what the road trip record will be? I’m going with 6-5, which would satisfactory for a trip of this nature.
