Opening Day is finally here, and since it’s inexplicably still not a national holiday, we’ve got all of the live stream details for you to watch baseball while at school or work. The first of four games that will air on ESPN today is an NL East showdown between the Atlanta Braves and New York Mets. These two teams couldn’t have had more different seasons in 2016, as the Mets won a wild card with an 87-75 record and the Braves finished in the division’s cellar with a 68-93 record.
The Braves will probably be godawful once again this year, but at least they have Julio Teheran. The 26-year-old righty is a two-time All-Star with a lifetime ERA of 3.39. Last season, Teheran went 7-10 with a 3.21 ERA and 1.05 WHIP while striking out 167 batters over 188 innings.
Taking the ball for the Mets will be 24-year-old Noah Syndergaard. The flame-throwing righty made his first All-Star team last season after going 14-9 with a 2.60 ERA and 1.15 WHIP while striking out 218 batters over 183.2 innings. With some elite lettuce flowing out of his cap and absolutely nasty stuff, Noah is more than worthy of his Thor nickname.
Now that the stage has been set, let’s breakdown all of the different ways you can watch the Braves take on the Mets.
