Finally. Nearly five hours after the Yankees postponed their home opener, the Mets postponed tonight’s game against the Phillies. The game will be made up as part of a single-admission doubleheader in July. Now, was that so hard?
The snow has stopped, but the temperatures will be in the 30s. That they even thought of making their players play under such conditions – and risk injury – and make their fans sit in such miserable conditions is irresponsible and reprehensible.
That the Mets would wait so long to postpone tonight’s game is emblematic of an organization that cares little for its fan base.
Too bad the Mets waited so long to make the inevitable announcement. After spending the last six weeks in Florida, the Mets played games on three of the last four days. They were off Friday, so many of the players haven’t had much time to get acclimated to their new city.
Had they called the game at 9 when it was clear the game wouldn’t be played it might have given them a full day to take care of personal business. Just making their lives a little easier.
