and then there were two…

The Rockies play their last Saturday game of 2014 tonight at Dodger Stadium.  The only drama left in this disappointing season is finding out if Morneau will win the batting title or not.  Perhaps in an effort to help out his cause, Walt Weiss has Justin sitting this one out.  Can’t go down in AVG if you don’t play – right?  Morneau’s .319 is one tick better than Josh Harrison’s .318.

Without him, and even assuming that Brothers starts the year in AAA to get straightened out, and without anyone from the outside, it seems that we could have a bullpen that looks like this: Hawkings as closer, Ottavino and Logan (I assume that he’ll return healthy and be better next year) for the 8th, and Kahnle, Brooks Brown, Christian Friedrich, and Juan Nicasio rounding out… Read more »
