Watch Mets Opening Day vs. Cardinals online

Manager Mickey Callaway gets some exercise during

Martinez was pulled after 90 pitches in the shortest outing by a Cardinals starter since Donovan Osborne lasted only two innings in 1999.

Thursday, 12:10 p.m. (St. Louis time) • RH Carlos Martinez (12-11, 3.64 ERA) vs. RH Noah Syndergaard (1-2, 2.97).

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. One of the more memorable season-opening series in NY came in 1985 when former Mets closer Neil Allen gave up an extra-inning, walkoff homer in the first game and a game-losing walk in his second game as the Cardinals' closer - which he wasn't for much longer.

Walker Schedules Special Elections for June in Vacant Legislative Seats
Scott Walker has ordered special elections for two state legislative districts that have been vacant since late December. In response, Speaker Robin Vos called Judge Reynolds an activist judge and accused her of working outside of the law.

Key stat: The Mets' Noah Syndergaard struck out 10 in six innings, becoming the third pitcher in history to reach double digits against the Cardinals on opening day. "We have veteran guys".

NY catcher Kevin Plawecki also had two walks and two hits, including a late RBI single. "A good kick-start to the season".

The lovely thing about baseball though is that its eight months provide so many twists and turns that expectations can fly out the window once the first pitch is thrown. His addition would be a major boost to an unsettled Cardinals bullpen lacking a proven closer in the wake of several injuries.

Trump assails Amazon on taxes, retail competition
Still, White House Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah shot down the notion that Trump's criticism was part of a personal grudge. Trump has tweeted about Amazon several times since his election, and the Washington Post has come under attack as well.

Mayor Bill de Blasio throws out the ceremonial first pitch before Opening Day in March 2014. The previous Mets manager to win his debut was Jeff Torborg in 1992.

Both the Mets and Cardinals are looking to return to the postseason this season.

Molina started on opening day at catcher for the 14th straight season, a franchise record for one position.

Rusty Staub, Mets, Expos icon, dies at age 73
At the end of his distinguished career, Staub founded the New York Police and Fire Widows' and Children's Benefit Fund. Staub was drafted by the Houston Colt.45's as a 17-year-old in 1961, and he played the 1962 season with the Bulls.

The Mets are shaking things up with their team celebration.
