Go Mets. Lets Go Mets! April has arrived and so has the start of Spring. My nearly 3 week trek across America is finished and I have arrived in New York [Read about it on the FAQ page]. I'm watching SNY with vintage Mets shows and games. I don't get SNY at home, I can see this channel playing on the TV most of this season. My wife is visiting during Easter Break and we are going to Citi for the first game against Washington. The Mets are opening the stadium up to fans and showing the game on their new large HD video screen. If it is anything like the one they have at ATT Park in San Francisco, it will be impressive.

So April will bring the start of the season on the road, a visit from my wife, my first visit to Citi Field, a concert with my favorite guitar players, eleven games against all 4 Division rivals, and a visit to Yankee Stadium for the first installment of the Subway Series. What a nice way to start my 2015 Dream Season!

The Mets home games have not started yet and the Mets pitching staff takes another hit just days before the home opener. Closer Jenrry Mejia has been suspended 80 games for PED and lost his eligibility to pitch in any 2015 postseason games. This news is not good along with both Josh Edgin and Zack Wheeler having season ending Tommy John surgeries.

End of Month Update

I can't believe April is over all ready. The Mets went 15-9 for the month and ended April leading the NL East by 4.5 games, the biggest division lead in the Majors. Although the Mets lost the last three games of the month, the fast start has them on top of their division after a month of games against division rivals Philadelphia, Atlanta, Miami, and Washington. The Mets won one of three games in the Yankee Stadium version of this year's Subway Series. The Yankees visit Citi Field in September. The highlight was April 14 when Matt Harvey pitched his first home game since Sept. 2013. The crowd and atmosphere was electric!

Unfortunately injuries came to the Mets all month. Captain David Wright went on the DL with a hamstring issue. Catcher Travis d'Arnaud broke his finger on a pitch. Pitcher Jerry Blevins broke his forearm on a line drive back through the box. Closer Jenrry Mejia has elbow stiffness plus was suspended for violating MLB's drug policy. Players have stepped up but losing key players have hurt the team and it's red hot start.

I had the time of my life this month! A record breaking 10-0 home stand, one of only 6 teams to ever do so. With my friend Steve, we took in two games at Yankee Stadium, sitting with the 7line Army for one game. My first trip on the NY subway, a visit to the Freedom Tower and 9/11 Memorial and more baseball than I've ever had in my life. My apartment is fantastic and I'm only 20 minutes from the ballpark. I haven't ventured around much but just going to the ballpark for nearly half the month was what I loved. May has an even more adventurous schedule!
