Sun today, snow tomorrow

Supposed to snow most of the night tonight in Denver, causing me to wonder 1) am I going to be able to get in there tomorrow, and 2) is it even going to matter because of the likelihood that tomorrow night’s game will be postponed. Tomorrow’s forecast high is 46 degrees, and a couple of the guys in the traveling party mentioned this morning that they didn’t even bring any outerwear on the trip. Not to sound arrogant, but I lived in Denver for five years — I NEVER go there without outerwear, not even in July. … For now, though, the Dodgers will get to play a game on another perfect, South Florida afternoon, and there might actually be a crowd here today. There are several groups of youngsters from area schools here, so at least Dolphin Stadium figures to get a rare dose of atmosphere. They’re early arrivers, too, or at least one group was. Derek Lowe was doing his running in the stands at about 9:30 this morning, and he had to run through a group of these kids. Funny thing is, they didn’t even seem to notice him. … Juan Castro becomes a free agent in less than three hours. I’m guessing this matter gets resolved fairly quickly, although that doesn’t necessarily mean it will be resolved today. Rarely in the history of the game has a backup infielder had so much leverage. But I know this guy, having covered him in Cincinnati, and he is one of the all-time good dudes. I’m sure he’ll land on his feet, and nobody deserves it more than he does.
