WASHINGTON, DC -- It's almost here: the Washington Nationals will open their 2019 season on March 28 at home against the New York Mets.

Nevertheless, there are high expectations that this team will be a contender for the playoffs.

Here's everything you need to know about your 2019 Nationals before Opening Day.
