This year has been pretty bad for the Cubs.

So why not start looking ahead to 2012? The Cubs -- and all other MLB teams -- released their 2012 schedules on Wednesday. The Cubs' 2012 slate features their first-ever visit to Target Field in Minneapolis to play the Twins (road trip!), and a visit from the Red Sox to Wrigley Field for the first time since 2005.

The season will open April 5 at Wrigley Field vs. the Nationals, and close also at home on Oct. 3 against the Astros. Note that the Marlins are now the "Miami Marlins", so indicated on the schedule. Also, there are several occasions, unlike previous recent years, where the Cubs will play teams on the road for a week, then the same teams at home the following week, or vice versa.

The complete schedule is after the jump.

HOME GAMES IN CAPS. Game times will be added when available. All are subject to change.
