Enough snow fell on Coors Field on Monday to make it ankle-deep in white stuff, so the game between the Colorado Rockies and New York Mets was postponed until Tuesday. A split doubleheader is scheduled for 1:10 p.m. and 6:40 p.m., Mountain Time. It was the second straight day inclement weather spoiled a game for the Mets, who also didn't play Sunday at Minnesota. They made the most of it at Coors by frolicking around the ballpark making snowmen, snow angels, snow whatever. They also cleared some turf and played catch.

Relief pitcher LaTroy Hawkins — pictured above — was, like, "What? Why can't we just play baseball in the snow?"

Mets media relations guru Jay Horwitz joked on Twitter that, because of the snow storm and the threat of more, Major League Baseball gave approval for the Mets and Rox to play three games in one day:

Some people, Ernie Banks being one of them, thought Horwitz was being serious. Such a concept might be fun for about 2 1/2 games, but by the fifth inning of Game 3, everybody would be dragging. Besides, the players' union would never OK a tripleheader. Sticks in the mud, err, snow they are.
