Meanwhile, in Colorado . . . our Photo of the Day

May 12, 2014, 10:37 AM EDT

This is what Coors Field looked like this morning:

There’s no baseball scheduled for Denver for the next few days and the forecast improves greatly starting tomorrow. But man, this is just another reminder of how awesome things could potentially be if the Rockies get another chance to play baseball in late October.

    Somebody call the ’86 Mets and we’ll have that white stuff cleaned up…. toot sweet!

      Tout Suite my man

        Frankly, I thought “toot” worked better with a cocaine joke.

        If this was a different type of forum I’d accuse you of attempting to…bump… up this thread.

    Didn’t the Mets & Rockies play a double-header in the snow last spring?

      No, it wasn’t in snow, it was in bitter bitter cold, around 28 degrees. I’m still shivering from that one.

      It had snowed pretty heavily in the days before, and they couldn’t get the stands cleared.

      Coors Field has probably the best drainage system in MLB and, if the Rox were scheduled for a home game tonight, the field would in fact be playable.

    I think they need a tax payer funded dome.

    Oh wait – wrong thread

    The weather outside is weather

      I’m going to give you a Hawaiian name… Peepyopee.

    Odd fact: Denver weather is so strange that you could probably host a Super Bowl with less worry than a World Series game. I’ve been to Denver in January four of the past five years, and it’s been gorgeous and over 50 every time.

    Meanwhile, on the weather report this morning, they said that we are getting a “cold front” and will only have a high of 75* today.

    Thank you for embedding the picture.

    As Ernie Banks would say, “let’s play two.”

    That time of year, it is typically significantly colder in Boston, NYC, or any of those other smug cities whose populations don’t think Denver’s earned MLB status. However, a game of the 2009 playoffs against the Phils was postponed, more due to a freak sub 20 cold front than from the snow, which was somewhat minimal.

    Snow in October at the lower elevations is pretty rare.

    Dollars to donuts weather costs more games every season in Phila/NYC/Boston than in Denver. Coors averages less than two weather postponements per season.
