Opening Day 2023 cannot come fast enough for New York Mets fans. Three postseason games? After 101 wins in the regular season? You’ve gotta be kidding me.

The Mets should have yet another excellent offseason with upgrades galore. Bouncing out of the postseason early will only fuel owner Steve Cohen into spending more.

While we’ll definitely get a good feel of the new team during spring training, it’s Opening Day when it starts to count.

NY Mets Opening Day is on March 30, 2023 against the Miami Marlins

The 2023 season for the Mets begins on Thursday, March 30, 2023 in Miami against the Marlins. It’s a 4:10pm first pitch so you’ll need to leave work a little early to catch the game on television—that’s if you’re not already planning to invade South Florida and take over the stadium.

The Mets will play the Marlins for four games to begin the year. Often we’ll see a day off after Opening Day. However, with the Marlins playing in a dome stadium, there is no risk of a rainout.

The Mets go from Florida to Wisconsin where they play the Milwaukee Brewers. Following that series, they return home for their Home Opener on April 6 where they took on the Marlins yet again. After three more with the Marlins, the Mets host the Padres.

April’s schedule also includes a West Coast trip versus the Oakland Athletics, Los Angeles Dodgers, and San Francisco Giants. It then finishes with three versus the Washington Nationals and then three more against the Atlanta Braves at Citi Field with a fourth game bleeding over into May.

By the time the first month of the season is over, we should hopefully have a good idea of where the Mets stand. There are some incredibly competent teams on the schedule for the first month. The lengthy West Coast trip in the middle might put a slight dent in their record. MLB’s balanced schedule which begins in 2023 should hopefully benefit them later on.
