Just moments ago, the Mets released an official statement to announce that the finale of the three-game series in Minnesota has been canceled due to inclement weather. The official New York Mets Twitter account then posted the pitching matchups for the four-game series in Colorado. Take a quick glance at it and you might notice a specific member of the rotation who is not scheduled to pitch at Coors Field.
Rotation for the Rockies: Mon: Dillon Gee. Tue. Aaron Laffey. Wed. Jeremy Hefner. Thurs. Jonathon Niese.

Matt Harvey will not be pitching in Colorado this week, meaning he will indeed be starting the opener of the homestand against Stephen Strasburg and the Washington Nationals.
If you were able to send one of the manuals to a displaced Mets fan in Denver, please contact them and tell them it's defective. That way, they won't use it and we'll get that epic matchup on Friday night. Barring any other weather-related cancellations, it appears as if many Mets fans, as well as baseball fans in general, will be in love with this matchup on Friday night.
