Marlins/Rockies Postponed

  Tonight's game between the Marlins and Rockies has been postponed due to nasty weather in the Denver area. The two teams will meet Saturday in a doubleheader, with the first game scheduled to start at 5:10 p.m. (eastern).

   There will be no changes to the Marlins pitching plans. Ricky Nolasco, who was scheduled to start Friday, will pitch the first game of the doubleheader. Nate Robertson will start the second game.

The weather is expected to improve Saturday. It couldn't be much worse than it was Friday, when it snowed and sleeted.

The game was the first one postponed this season in the majors, the deepest into a season without a postponement since 1985.

  "For all the negatives that poeple talk about with global warming, there are a lot of positives, and this is one of them," Marlins catcher John Baker said of the length of time without a postponement.
