Mets-Nationals 2021 Opening Day Postponed

The New York Mets and Washington Nationals Opening Day game has been postponed due to Covid-19 issues. What we know now, the Nationals have two players that have now tested positive. Over five others need to quarantine because of contact tracing. MLB has announced that the Mets will not make up the game tomorrow, April 2, and the earliest the series can open is Saturday, April 3. We are awaiting more information.

It does seem that this may lead to SNY getting to call the opener, as someone on Twitter said could be a possibly.

Two Mets test positive for COVID

Someone from the coaching staff, as well as a player has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. Tonight’s game vs the Marlins will now be postponed, as well as tomorrow’s opener against the Yankees.

The Mets were about to finish off a series in Miami just after completing one in Philadelphia, both teams had their own separate cases of the virus.

Those that tested positive will remain in Miami and continue to quarantine themselves.

“It would be terrible to have too many games postponed,” one Mets player said in a text message to The Post. “Especially with the way we have been hitting the ball.”

More details to come soon
