Schedule release by email? MLB has to be better

Leave it MLB to dump the 2024 schedule by email on a Wednesday afternoon.

Why not have a schedule release show? I get it's not the NFL. I get there are 162 games. I get this season is still going on.

But......what's the downside to a MLB Network schedule release show?

The show could highlight:

2024 Seoul Opening Series, featuring the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Diego Padres in Seoul, South Korea in the country’s first-ever Major League games on Wednesday, March 20th

Major League games will returning to both Mexico City and London for a second consecutive season with a two-game set between the Houston Astros and the Colorado Rockies scheduled for Saturday, April 27th and Sunday, April 28th; and the New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies scheduled to meet at London Stadium on Saturday, June 8th and Sunday, June 9th?

The 94th All-Star Game on Tuesday, July 16th at Globe Life Field in Texas.

All 30 Clubs being on the field for the Fourth of July.

A full slate of 15 games is scheduled for Jackie Robinson Day on Monday, April 15th, including the Washington Nationals visiting the Dodgers in Los Angeles.
