Baseball season can't come soon enough even though the Mets aren't exactly going for a World Series fans are ecstatic for the start of the new season. But, Mets fans will need to wait another day to kick off the 2024 season as for the second year in a row rain will push back Mets' opening day.

The Mets will not play on Thursday however -- they'll now start their season against the Brewers on Friday at 1:40 PM.

When the Mets and Brewers finally start their season, it'll be a matchup between Jose Quintana and Freddy Peralta if the teams push their starters back a day. The Mets plan to pitch Luis Severino on Saturday and Tylor Megill on Sunday.

Due to the often cold weather and constant issues with playing baseball in March in New York, it's a shock that the Mets continue to start their seasons at home just for the games to get postponed.

The good news is, though, that Friday is given a 0% chance of rain, Saturday a 5% chance of rain, and Sunday a 20% chance of rain, meaning the team should get all three games in this weekend.

Start the season off on a positive note

The Mets desperately need to start the year off on the right foot in 2024. JD Martinez and Kodai Senga will eventually join the team meaning if they start off well they'll have reinforcements on the way.

The Brewers are expected to have a down year after trading Corbin Burnes, so the Mets should take advantage of a weakened Opening Day opponent. After the Brewers, the Mets will take on an upstart Tigers team where they'll have a decent shot of winning the series.
