Deja Snow: Mets/Rockies Postponed Again

The Rockies and Mets game scheduled tonight has been postponed due to snow and high winds.  No double header will be scheduled for tomorrow, and a makeup date has yet to be announced.

Jon Niese will get the start for the Mets for tomorrow afternoon’s scheduled series finale (3:10 PM EDT).  The forecast looks snow-free as of now.

I had tickets to both games that were postponed this week, so maybe I’m bad luck.  Fortunately, I missed the train wreck of a doubleheader yesterday, though.

    Well, that’s one way to save a bullpen. Another way is to be anxious for (I can’t believe I’m about to write this) Feliciano and Fernando to arrive. At least they are MLB caliber pitchers, or were, like the rest of our bullpen except for Parnell and Familia.

    I know the whole world wants Harvey and Strausburg – me too – and the Mets need the 40,000+ attendance but why not hold Niese for Saturday? Two reasons, he can get an extra two days of rest and why not have him face Washington? We’re chasing Washington, relatively speaking, not Colorado. Pitch Hefner tomorrow.

    Mets gained 1/2 game on Braves and didn’t use a relief pitcher. That is one hell of a day in these parts, snow or not.

      They should get snowed out more often.

    Possibly the most bizarre baseball week in April for the Mets ever. Three postponements due to snow and freezing weather, doubleheaders in wind chill in the 20s, large leads blown while fans sleep in innocent bliss, and as the result of this wintry mix, several Mets suffer from exposure — exposure of their dubious status as major leaguers.

    Just when you thought the Mets could trade Buck for Dickey-like prospects, d’Arnaud breaks his foot. At this rate, the Mets might have to worry about d’Arnaud retiring before they worry about him becoming a free agent.
