The Outside Corner:
Yesterday's Mets-Rockies game in Denver was postponed due to a snowstorm in Colorado. The teams are scheduled to play a doubleheader today (that is supposed to begin just one hour from the time I'm making this point), and the Rockies are frantically trying to clear the field of snow. They're chronicling the fun on Twitter.
Rockies mascot Dinger is involved.
Rockies owner Richard Monfort is involved.
The Rockies head groundskeeper is using a snowplow on the field.
There are carts upon carts upon carts of snow being removed from the field.
Oh, and even the Mets got in on the act, as GM Sandy Alderson helped out.
Removing ten inches of snow from a baseball field before a game is an extremely difficult proposition, especially when the game starts that afternoon. Hats off to everyone involved with the Rockies and Mets getting involved today.

In this young season, much has been made of all the high profile teams off to slow starts. Kicking the Jays, Rays and Angels while they are down has become something of a recreational sport at this point. However teams on the opposite side of the coin aren't receiving nearly the same level of attention. To see what I mean look no further than the NL West leading Colorado Rockies...

Colorado Rockies owner Dick Monfort is among the grounds crew shoveling snow in the hope his team will squeeze in a doubleheader against the New York Mets on Tuesday.
Nearly an hour before first pitch at 3:10 p.m. EDT, the crew had hauled off a majority of the eight inches of snow that covered the outfield grass. There were still mounds stacked up in front of the dugouts.
Jordan Pacheco singled home the winning run with two outs in the 10th inning and the Colorado Rockies rallied from a six-run deficit for a 9-8 victory over the New York Mets on Tuesday night to sweep a frigid doubleheader.
Pacheco's sharp single through the right side of the infield brought in Carlos Gonzalez, who walked. Rockies players jumped out of the dugout and mobbed Pacheco...
