The Mets released their 2015 regular season schedule on Monday, and one thing immediately jumped out. For the first time in a long time, the Mets will not have an arduous west coast road trip.
In addition, the final month and change of the season will feature games against mainly National League East opponents.
Highlights of the schedule:
- The Mets will open the season in Washington on April 6

- The Mets play the rest of the American League East, including home dates with the Red Sox and Blue Jays.
