After the Giants, the Mets (and the snow!) come to town
On this episode of the podcast, we discuss the New York Mets coming to Denver to wrap up Colorado's long homestand. It could be significantly impacted by snow (because snow on May 20 and 21 is the textbook definition of "that's Colorado") and we talk about how the schedule and the Rockies' rotation could be impacted. We also talk about the series with the Giants and how the Rockies were much better on defense and with the walks on Wednesday to break their long losing streak against them and we also talk about some overall MLB stuff, like the lack of offense and the state of catchers in the sport right now as well.
