The Twins decided to cancel today's game in Fort Myers, but only after the Mets drove almost three hours - 2:45, to be exact -- and began unpacking at Lee County Stadium.

Within 20 minutes of their arrival, the Mets were told to go home. Not cool. Especially after it had rained all night on the west coast of Florida with more thunderstorms in the forecast. When the Mets' buses left the parking lot at Tradition Field at 7:15 a.m., it was pouring rain here too.

Given this was a spring training game -- and not Game 6 of the NLCS -- maybe the Twins could have acted a little sooner on this one.

By the way, the Mets head back to Fort Myers on Wednesday to play the Red Sox at City of Palms Park. Hopefully the weather will be better then, for  their sake.
