There are few things that a MLB team wants to do than having to play two doubleheaders in one week, and the New York Mets almost had to do that because of snow that postponed two of their games against the Colorado Rockies.
The two teams finished their series without any weather trouble on Thursday, but the Mets had three of their games postponed due to weather this week.
New York hasn’t had the best of luck with the weather this season, and things aren’t about to get any better since the team is headed east where the same storm that was in Denver will be, which could mean even more postponements and pitchers getting pushed back.
There is a big matchup expected Friday night when the Mets send Matt Harvey to the mound against the Washington Nationals and their ace Stephen Strasburg. I’m not sure that game will get played on Friday since the forecast isn’t pretty.
The Mets have to feel fortunate not to be playing a doubleheader Thursday, or they would have got home early Friday morning before the weekend series. There is no easy way to fix weather problems unless you are going to put a dome over every stadium, and that’s not going to happen. I guess part of going to a Mets game for the time being is bringing an umbrella along, because the team is taking the bad weather with them wherever they go.
