There's no better place to come back from injury than Colorado ... Maybe grandy can grab hold of some homers tonight

What, no concern over how the Mets have to play after changing time zones?  I thought that would be a theme this season.

This is going to be tough, the odds are against us we never do well in Coors field, not to mention that they're hot right now. Let's see what this team is made of.

I want to see Lagares back in action, hitting into the gaps and covering them! LGM!

Welcome back Lagares...Gotta say Kirk really played well in the limited games he got in.  See him in Sept.

So, who's next for the Nats? The Cubs? Then the Indians, then a four game series against the D-backs? Talk about hitting the jackpot in the schedule getting an easy sweep in Houston.

Still trying to figure out that if they knew by early afternoon that last night's game was cancelled why they didn't get to Colorado until 4 AM.

@Sean Garcia  Let's go Grandy! Too bad he's in a slump right now. I like watching him bat and I hope he finds his way to start hitting home runs. I kind of miss watch Byrd hitting home run last season. That was a classic Byrd home run 2 days ago against the Mets.

@Leif Granlind  easy sweeps in MLB don't exist. But it is a much easier schedule than they had in April.

@Joanie Yan Perhaps because nationwide, there was a total of 6,162 delays and 912 cancellations by the afternoon that affected them?

@Joanie Yan  MOving flight reservations, or flight plans, at the last minute for 30+ people isn't that easy.  Even if it is a chartered flight, the equipment most likely wasn't available earlier.  No to mention, as mrgee stated, the weather probably wreaked havoc on flight schedules across the country.

Flights probably cancelled due to the weather. Can't force somebody to fly in a storm system just 'cause you have a baseball game to prep for.

The Marlins are better than all those four teams.
