The Mets will open Citi Field on April 13 against the San Diego Padres, while the Yankees will begin play at the new Yankee Stadium on April 16 against the Cleveland Indians.After which we will not see the Padres or Indians on national television again for the rest of the year.
The All-Star Game will take place on July 14 at Busch Stadium in St. Louis.
Hey, happy birthday to me! I'll probably be out with my wife at a restaurant that night, so I won't feel obligated to liveblog another turgid, offense-free game decided by the third stringers!
With a late start to the season, the postseason will also probably run into November. The only time the World Series was previously played in November was in 2001 after the attacks of September 11 suspended the season for a week.OK, so that late start has a price.
For what it's worth, if I had to choose between snowy baseball in late March and snowy baseball in early November, I'd probably pick the former. This could be bad.
