The New York Mets released their 2019 season scheduled today via Twitter.
On March 28, the Mets will play their first game of the season against the Washington Nationals on the road and then head to Miami to face the Marlins before having their home opener against the Nationals again on April 4.
Next season, the team will square off against the AL Central. The Mets will face off with the Minnesota Twins (April 9-10), Detroit Tigers (May 24-26), and Cleveland Indians (August 20-22) at Citi Field while heading on the road for the Twins again (July 16-17), the Chicago White Sox (July 30- August 1), and the Kansas City Royals (August 16-18).
While it’s tough to tell a year in advance which teams are going to be good or bad, it is probably good that the Mets will be facing the AL Central given that only one team in that division currently is above .500.
Meanwhile, the Subway Series will be a two/two split at Yankee Stadium (June 10-11) and Citi Field (July 2-3). As Tim Britton of the Athletic points out, the Yankees will be heading back from London in advance of the latter series.
The team’s longest stretch without an off-day over the course of the season will last 19 games and take place from May 14-June 2. In that span, the team will play seven games with the Washington Nationals, four games with the Los Angeles Dodgers, and three games with the Arizona Diamondbacks, Miami Marlins, and Detroit Tigers.
Furthermore, the team’s longest road trip will last 11 games from June 17-27 in which they will face the Atlanta Braves (three games), Chicago Cubs (four games), and Philadelphia Phillies (four games).
Lastly, their largest homestand will be from September 6-15 in which they will face the Phillies (three games), Diamondbacks (four games), and Dodgers (three games).
