Today is Sunday and the Rockies have been day dreaming of everything not baseball the entire weekend, scoring just two runs over the last 29 innings. The RWOers have been reduced to watching how well the pitchers have been performing. The only way to win is to throw a shutout. So Big P will be asked to provide the long suffering fans with eight innings of shutout ball. The Rockies would be wise to ask Ryan Spilborghs to put on his uniform since he has Dan Haren’s number. It would be wise to walk Giancarlo Stanton every time he comes to the plate, even if it’s two outs and bases empty. Stanton is so hot that it might even be a good idea to walk him with the bases loaded instead of giving up the big blow. Make anybody but Stanton beat us.
The recent offensive, pun intended, performance and the latest injury news should get Colorado thinking about tinkering with the lineup and evaluating talent for next year. Corey Dickerson with his PF is likely out for long term or even the rest of the year. Walt Weiss reported that Justin Morneau is not making any progress from his concussion, so he is likely out for possibly the year. The Rockies have shown that even with the healthy superstars, their team record is not better than last year’s unhealthy team. It is time to make some drastic changes. Jon Gray just announced via Twitter that he is engaged to the most beautiful woman in the world. That is as good time as any to call up Jon Gray. Don’t players usually overperform with they get engaged, married, or have babies?? Candidates to come from Albuquerque are Drew Stubbs, Christian Bergman and Kyle Parker. If we make roster busting trades, Matt McBride, John Lannon, and even Tim Wheeler are potential additions to the 40-man roster.
