Mets Opening Day Game Brings Nearly $8 Million to New York City

Mets starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard throws during

The Cardinals and Mets haven't opened the season in NY since 1996.

But his plus-minus ended at plus-two as he had three hits, including a home run, and drove in two against Mets fireballer Noah Syndergaard, whom he never had faced before.

Across town in Queens, the Mets don't have that kind of flash in their lineup, though Yoenis Cespedes, Jay Bruce and Todd Frazier could be flirting with 30 home runs apiece this season. However, overall, this was a very promising start for the veteran, who will hope to stay healthy and produce big numbers for the Mets.

"I was mad at myself not making that play, for sure".

Egypt holds 2nd day of presidential election; outcome known
Sisi was first elected in 2014 with 97 per cent of the vote, but with a modest turnout of about 47 per cent. Sisi overthrew Islamist president Mohammed Morsi in 2013 following mass protests against his rule.

It isn't known when Holland will be ready to join the team, having missed all of spring training, and it could be hard for him to find a place to get into games in the next week. "We have young guys with so much talent". Gonzalez and catcher Kevin Plawecki were each 2-for-3 with two walks. "A good kick-start to the season". He throws 100 miles per hour, his change up is in the low 90s, and he's got other pitches pitchers dream of throwing. Greg Holland agreed to a $14 million, one-year contract with the team, according to a person familiar with the deal. A three-time All-Star, Holland was a free agent after leading the National League with 41 saves past year for Colorado.

That first opportunity to play on the same side as Syndergaard this season is Thursday, Opening Day. The previous Mets manager to win his debut was Jeff Torborg in 1992.

The Mets are now 37-20 all-time on Opening Day, which is the best record in baseball history. Conforto is ahead of schedule in his recovery from surgery for a dislocated left shoulder and is eligible to return late next week, when the Mets are in Washington.
