Let’s play two … maybe. After Monday night’s game against the Rockies was snowed out, the teams agreed to play a split-admission doubleheader at 3:10 p.m. and 8:40 p.m. today at Coors Field. Dillon Gee, Monday’s scheduled starter, will pitch Game 1; Jeremy Hefner likely will pitch Game 2. But the thought of squeezing two games into this winter window seems optimistic, something manager Terry Collins was willing to concede. "We just saw a weather report come back that this front that’s going through [Monday], there’s one coming in [tonight] that’s worse than this one," Collins said. It’s been a rough road trip for the Mets. The team scrapped Sunday afternoon’s game against the Minnesota Twins because of wintry weather conditions. The Mets last had back-to-back games canceled Aug. 27-28, 2011, when the East Coast was dealing with Hurricane Irene. "It gets to be tough because now your pitching’s drastically affected," Collins said. Outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis spent six years in the Denver metropolitan area. He said there definitely were days like this when he played high school ball. "I think I’ve seen it like this in April a couple times," Nieuwenhuis said.
