The Mets announced their 2008 schedule on Tuesday, and once again the schedule-makers and the interleague-play-istas have conspired against us. In addition to our usual treat of six games against the Yankees, the Mets draw three-game sets against the Angels, Mariners and Rangers. Here is the breakdown by opponent.
The Mets get the unfavorable draw of nine games against the NL Champion Rockies, though at least for their bats' sakes they will play six of them in Denver. The Mets open the season on April 1st with three games in Florida and close the season -- and their regular season tour at Shea Stadium -- with three against those same Marlins on September 26th, 27th and 28th. That last one will be a hot ticket, so get on line (or online) early when the box office opens.
