This is what Coors Field looked like this morning:

There’s no baseball scheduled for Denver for the next few days and the forecast improves greatly starting tomorrow. But man, this is just another reminder of how awesome things could potentially be if the Rockies get another chance to play baseball in late October.

MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports that there is some momentum in talks between the Mariners and free agent outfielder Jon Jay.

Jay, 32, hit .296/.374/.375 in 433 plate appearances with the Cubs last season, which is adequate. He’s heralded more for his defense and his ability to play all three outfield spots.

The Mariners are losing center fielder Jarrod Dyson to free agency and likely don’t want to rely on Guillermo Heredia next season, hence the interest in Jay. The free agent class for center fielders is otherwise relatively weak.
