Mets Morning News: Second straight snow day means extra baseball today

USA TODAY Sports

New York Mets related news and links for April 16, 2013

This is two straight mornings that the news doesn't have any sort of result for the Mets because of inclement weather. Back-to-back games in Minnesota and Colorado have now been interrupted by snow, and the Mets will play a split doubleheader on Tuesday because of it. Dillon Gee will pitch the first game for New York, while Terry Collins wasn't sure whether he'd go with Jeremy Hefner or Aaron Laffey for the second game of the series. It doesn't appear that he's considering moving either Jon Niese or Matt Harvey up a day at this point. Both will still be going on an extra day of rest Thursday and Friday, respectively.

Yesterday at AA

Brock looked back at Jackie Robinson day in Mets history, an event that kicked off for the first time at Shea Stadium

We had all sorts of player performance meters for you to digest, with hitters, pitchers, and prospects all posting yesterday.

We had a series preview for the Rockies, and since we haven't started that series yet, we might as well look at it again.

Around Baseball

The Nationals drew even with the Mets at the expense of the AAA team playing in the majors, beating the Marlins by a 10-3 score. That 10th loss in 12 games means the Marlin could realistically fall behind in the division by double digits just 13 games into the season tonight. How great is it to have the Marlins on our division?

Like the Marlins, the Phillies also managed to lose yesterday. I'm still not buying that the Phillies are done.

Mark Buehrle took the mound against the team he played most of his career with yesterday, as the Blue Jays beat the White Sox 4-3. That means that Buehrle has now started against all 30 teams in the majors, and he's managed to record a win against every one of them except the Mets.

Wrigley Field will be undergoing renovation in the near future, and there are some fairly major changes planned.
