Timbers Tid Bits: MLS Schedule Edition

So we've already seen the appearance of Toronto FC's schedule which has the Portland Timbers playing them, away, on May 12th. This also means that the full MLS schedule should be released very soon. All my surces and tips are telling me that it will be released tomorrow at 2:00PM EST. Regardless of time, if true, it would be a marked improvement over the schedule's release last year which was delayed well into February, if memory serves me right.

So good on MLS for getting their act together this year.

Enjoy today's news. We'll update as soon as we hear of the full schedule.
