Take a Group to See the Mets or the Yankees in a Charter Bus—The Way the Pros Travel
It’s almost time to “buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack, folks. Spring training is underway and the season opener is just around the corner. And in New York City, that means the opportunity to see some of the best players and teams in the world—the Yankees and the Mets. Both teams finished with winning records last year-the Mets lost to the San Francisco Giants in the wild card game and the Yankees were just five games out of the playoff race in a highly competitive league, where 10 of the fifteen teams had a winning record.
The 2017 New York Mets
The Mets were pretty successful in signing key free agents over the offseason, particularly outfielder Yoenis Cespedes, who inked a deal for four years for $110 million, the second highest amount the Mets have paid in the free agency market in their history. They also signed second baseman Neil Walker and pitcher Jerry Blevins. Many insiders in baseball think the Mets are primed to make a title run in 2017. The pitching staff, which struggled with injuries last year, is expected to be strong this year. Staff ace Matt Harvey, who had shoulder surgery at the end of the 2016 campaign, is expected to rebound to prior form. Phenom Noah “Thor” Syndergaard is expected to be back and strong, even though he pitched most of the season last year with a bone spur (which did not require surgery). Mets general manager Sandy Alderson says the team is “eight or nine deep” in the pitching rotation.
The Mets will open their 2017 season at home against Atlanta, on Monday, April 3, with an afternoon game. After a day off and two night games with the Braves, the Mets will host the Miami Marlins for three games under the lights before heading off for their first road trip of the season, taking on the Phillies for three and heading to Miami for a four-game weekend stand. The Mets then return to Citi Field for a rematch with the Phillies and a weekend series with the Washington Nationals. They finish out the home stand with three games against the Braves, before closing out April on the road against the Nats.
The 2017 Yankees
The Yankees will play their 115th season in New York this year. Over the offseason, they brought in closer Aroldis Chapman, paying $86 million for a five-year contract, the most ever shelled out for a relief pitcher. They also signed left fielder Matt Holliday and first baseman/outfielder Chris Carter to one year contracts. The team’s spending, however, has been far less than in the past, as management has worked hard to improve the team’s farm system and develop players from within. That being said, many expect that the Yankees will compete, but are still at team in transition.
The Yankees start the 2017 season on the road, heading south for three games with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, the first an afternoon game on Sunday, April 2. After a weekend series in Baltimore, the Bronx Bombers have their home opener on Monday, April 10 against Tampa Bay. The St. Louis Cardinals then come in for three games, followed by the Chicago White Sox. The Yankees then head out for their second road trip, with a couple of three games series, against the Pittsburgh Pirates and Boston Red Sox, before finishing April at home against the Orioles.
