Meet the Mets

After a long winter with a contentious lockout, Opening Day is finally here!

It is not the Opening Day the Mets envisioned when spring training began but your Opening Day starter is Tylor Megill.

With weather in the forecast, the start of the game got pushed back to 7:05pm in an effort to miss the rain.

Brandon Nimmo is optimistic he’ll be able to play despite dealing with a neck issue that popped up in training camp.

The team signed John Curtiss who underwent Tommy John last year and is unlikely to contribute to the team this season.

The Mets will open the season with both Travis Jankowski and Chasen Shreve on the roster.

Being the Mets manger means you have to be ready for anything and Buck Showalter is up to the task.
