UPDATE: Marc Carig tweets that Horwitz was having some fun. So this was just a fun imaginative exercise in the end.
The Mets will be in Colorado for a four-game set with the Rockies and the forecast is not looking good. They already dealt with snow with a recently-completed stop in Minnesota and, as the New York Times shows, there could be more:
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. On Thursday, the final day of the series, it is supposed to be sunny, with a temperature of 38. The Web site carries this headline, “April Becoming the Snowiest For Denver in Years.” According to that story, up to a foot of snow is possible next week.
Mets PR director Jay Horwitz tweeted that MLB has given the Mets and Rockies the go-ahead to play a triple-header if necessary:
Because we only come to Colorado once, MLB has given the Mets and Rockies the go-ahead to play a triple header this week.11,4 and 8 times,
