Blake Street Bunnies Lack RISP Hits

The feature picture speaks volumes on the state of Blake Street Bunnies offensive prowess. The Rockies opened up the first inning by putting runners on the corners with CarGo stepping into the batters box with no outs. As he has been doing for the past month, he swung at the ball way off the plate and in the dirt for the first out. Money struck out for the second out. Baby Bull grounded out for the third out leaving the runners stranded at the end of the inning. The RWOers knew the offense was taking Sunday off especially with Madison Bumgarner throwing.

Buster Posey, who is doing the James Loney impersonation, opened the scoring with a solo homer to left field. Hunter Pence hit a two-run shot in the fifth inning after a Jordan Pacheco error which led to the second run. Drew Pomeranz, making his 2013 debut, walked the next two batters which led to his removal from the game. CarGo hit a meaningless home run. Money extended his hit streak to 27 with a single in the eighth inning and scored the second run on Baby Bull’s double. The Rockies bullpen went 4 2/3 innings giving up a run. The final score was 5-2 in favor of the Giants.

Despite the loss, the Rockies (41-42) remain in second place two games behind Arizona. The NL West race got more interesting with just four games separating the first place team and last place team. Rox are currently 2-1 as part of the 16-game series vs. the divisional opponents. The Rockies have done well within the division; 5-5 vs. Arizona, 8-2 vs. San Diego, 6-7 vs. San Francisco, and 4-2 vs. Los Angeles. That adds up to a 23-16 record against the divisional opponents which was aided by their dominance over San Diego.

The Rockies have a day off Monday before Los Angeles come to Coors Field for a three game set. The first game will pit Clayton Kershaw and Roy Oswalt against each other. The player to watch is rookie phenom Yasiel Puig, who had 44 hits in the month of June which is second most in history for hits in a debut month. He brings a .436 average with seven home runs and an OPS of 1.180.

Anybody know what the team BA RISP is by now? It has to be Ian Stewart-like after the last couple of weeks.

The boys look like they could use a day or two off. Pom looked scared, no confidence at all, Colvin looks lost in the field as well as the batter’s box, and Cargo just wants to maintain his lead in home runs. I’ll chalk this one to Sunday blahs and hope Arenado’s ankle is nothing to worry about. Time to play a round of golf and reload fellas.

I have to admit that I’m looking forward to Puig playing at Coors Field. He’s liable to hit baseballs into Fort Collins, the way he’s been going.

I have serious doubts about the legitimacy of it all. The guy’s ear/head size ratio reminds me of the roid freaks like Bonds and Sosa.

With Dex still out, do the Rockies have a decent backup? Cargo apparently won’t play there. Colvin looks bad. Dickerson is listed as a corner outfielder. Seems like its time for Blackmon to come again. At least his defense was pretty good, as I remember.

The Mets have some kid named Eric Young jr.who’s been putting up HOF numbers the last two weeks who could probably be had for half the Sky Sox roster.
