Mets get a snow day

Mets get a snow day

Mother Nature reared her (very) ugly head this morning. Seriously, I'm really sick of her antics. And her latest outburst made our Monday a little extra Monday-ish by snowing out tonight's series opener against Phaildephia.

Typically, I'm all for calling games when the weather is bad this early in the season. When we're three down with 159 to go, having the players and fans sit outside in a frozen tundra is just unnecessary, and it isn't enjoyable for everyone involved. One slight issue in this particular instance: the snow stopped about nine hours before the first pitch.

Did the team want some time to re-calibrate after a disappointing showing Sunday afternoon? Perhaps. Did they need some extra time to digest their Easter Ddnners or nurse their holiday hangovers? Could be. I, however, happen to have a much different theory, and it goes by the name of Hansel Robles.

Robles is in New York right now and I'd like an explanation as to why. There's no conceivable way he's improved in the ways he needs to over a three game span, and while Anthony Swarzak's injury may make a call up necessary, it hasn't been sound-the-alarm-and-bring-in-something-familiar-even-though-that-something-familiar-is-very-very-bad bad.

Maybe calling the game today gave us another day to figure out an alternative solution to the Swarzak injury issue and considering it's supposed to RAIN ALL DAY TOMORROW, we'll likely have an extra 24 hours to figure something out.
