• More Snow Could Be in Mets’ Future

    But no one can play baseball with snow continuing to fall, so Monday's scheduled opener with the Mets was postponed to Tuesday as part of a split doubleheader if the snow clears. According to that article, up to a foot of snow is possible next week. Mets media relations guru Jay Horwitz joked on Twitter that, because of the snow storm and the threat of more, Major League Baseball gave approval for the Mets and Rox to play three games in one day: Monfort had plenty of company removing the snow, as vice president Bill Geivett wearing a heavy Montreal Expos jacket and chief baseball officer Dan O'Dowd also scooped snow off the turf as well. Snow is predicted the first three days, with the temperature progressively dropping; on Wednesday accuweather.com predicts a high of 29 degrees and a low of 6. Shovel in hand, the Colorado Rockies owner joined a crew of team employees helping to dig out snow-covered Coors Field, clearing the way for the Rockies and New York Mets to finally play ball. That will allow them to keep their starting pitching somewhat in line, with Jon Niese starting Thursday's series finale at Coors Field, Matt Harvey pitching Friday against the Nationals and Jeremy Hefner replacing fifth starter Aaron Laffey on Saturday.
