Baltimore Brunch

The Colorado Rockies will look to secure a road series this afternoon behind ace right-hander Jhoulys Chacin (11-6, 3.18) in an early start for Coloradans, 11:35 am MDT versus the Orioles at Camden Yards in Baltimore.  Chacin is following a typical Rockies no. 5 starter performance, as the Orioles lit-up Chad Bettis, who was not sharp, Saturday evening, defeating Colorado 8-4.

Chacin will face fellow righty Scott Feldman (2-3, 5.18).  He’ll seek his 12th victory in a strong come-back year after 2012 shoulder troubles.  Chacin got the victory in the opener of the San Diego series at Coors Field last Monday, allowing 1 run in 8 strong innings and striking-out 6.  Feldman went 5-1/3 in Phoenix, also Monday, getting no decision.  He allowed one earned-run in the Orioles’ loss to Arizona.

Todd Helton and Big Money Michael Cuddyer swap defensive spots today, with Cuddyer in at 1st and Helton doing the DH’ing.  Yorvit Torrealba catches and DJ LeMahieu hits 9th at 2nd-base.  Baltimore’s got Alexi Casilla and Taylor Teagarden in the 8 and 9 slots, at short and catcher respectively.  Brian Roberts will hit 6th and DH, and Ryan Flaherty hits 7th at 2nd.

It’s cloudy and cool in Baltimore.  Temperatures will be in the low 70°s and the wind will blow straight-in at 6 MPH.  ROoT’s got the TV as usual, and radio’s back on KOA.

Same ol story with Tulo. 2 hits when no one is on base, strike out with a runner on third. Maybe he should lead off instead of be the third or fourth spot.

Guess you and Doc are longing for the heady days of Clint Barmes!

Actually, more like the heady days of his early years when Tulo looked and acted like he gave a damn. Big Money acts like he enjoys the game and knows what a privilege it is to be paid millions to play it. Wish I could say the same about Tulo.

Off topic, but Tyler Anderson had a good outing in Modesto last night, one run over 7 innings. Coupled with the great performances of late by Eddie Butler and Jonathan Gray, at least there’s hope for one day having a strong rotation.

That’s been the story for the five years I’ve been on this[and the old]site.Then they turn into Freiderich or Pomerance.At least the new “hopes”have easier names to spell.
