15 Days

2005 Upper Deck Update #18

Only 15 days remaining until the games start to count!  The Mets open their 2015 campaign on April 6 with a road contest versus the defending division champion Washington Nationals.

Jerry Grote, Geroge Foster and Ron Darling all wore the No. 15 for the Mets during their playing days.  However, I'll give the nod to center fielder Carlos Beltran, who crafted three of the greatest single seasons in Mets history. Plus, I wanted an excuse to show a card from 2005 Upper Deck Update. [Ed. Note: What the heck is Upper Deck Update??]

Added Knowledge:  After a sub-par 2005 season that saw him swat only 16 homers, Beltran tied the franchise record with 41 long balls in 2006.
