As close as this season was to not coming to fruition, we are somehow here: MLB Opening Day. On Thursday at 7:05 p.m. ET, the New York Mets and their estimated $277 million payroll will travel to Washington to take on Juan Soto and the Nationals.
The Mets did run into some odd injury luck with Jacob DeGrom out for at least two months and Max Scherzer pitching tomorrow. Odds according to BetMGM have the Mets as a slight favorite in this matchup. It will be interesting to see how Tylor Megill fairs in Thursday’s game.

How healthy will the Mets’ rotation be, both short- and long-term? Who will round out the Nationals’ 28-man roster amid injuries? These are just some of the significant questions that loomed leading to the
beginning of the regular season.
So here’s what is known: The Nationals are entering the first full season of the franchise’s new chapter since they overhauled the roster at last year’s Trade Deadline. With Max Scherzer and other veterans now playing elsewhere, 23-year-old MVP candidate Juan Soto is the centerpiece of a team that is bookended by developing, young prospects and experienced leaders. This is expected to be a season of getting healthy, establishing chemistry, ushering in a new wave of talent and building a foundation for years ahead.
