DENVER -- The first-pitch temperature forecast is 30 degrees (with a windchill of 20 degrees), but it's relatively sunny at Coors Field and snow removal is well under way. Lucas Duda, two days after being removed with a stiff back, is out of the lineup. Marlon Byrd gets his first center-field start as a Met.
