The Mets have posted the tentative 2008 schedule.
Among the highlights touted by the Mets:
– Opening Day, April 8 vs. Phillies
– Torre and the Dodgers, May 29-June 1
– Subway Series, June 27-29
– National League Champion Rockies, July 11-13
– Final Regular Season Game at Shea, September 28 vs. Marlins
My early observations:
– Our season ticket plan has given us opening day seats most seasons. This year, Opening Day is on a Tuesday – not a day in our plan. So Loge13 loses out on Opening Day, unless we get lucky.
– After over two decades of watching Met games from Loge13, our last game in our plan will be September 25th, against the Cubs. I have already called in sick at work for September 26th.
– No word yet on Shea celebration days. There are supposed to be announcements in the next few weeks.
