Calling All Bats!

The Cy Young hitting Rockies were in full force last night for the first game of the Marlins four game series. DrewPo wasn’t too bad on the mound, taking the loss but not the blame. It was the lack of hitting that did in the Rockies – yet again.

Tonight’s lineup is the exact same as last night with Chacin on the mound in place of Pomeranz. Hopefully the bats will come alive and the runs will be a plenty.

1. Dexter Fowler (S) CF
2. DJ LeMahieu (R) 2B
3. Carlos Gonzalez (L) LF
4. Troy Tulowitzki (R) SS
5. Michael Cuddyer (R) RF
6. Todd Helton (L) 1B
7. Wilin Rosario (R) C
8. Nolan Arenado (R) 3B
9. Jhoulys Chacin (R) P

Jeez. What’s with giving up the HRs to the obvious candidates? Isn’t this the 3rd game that William has gone 0-fer?

When it’s all said and done, Geivett & DOD will probably get raises and promotions because the team will undoubtedly improve this year on their 64 wins from last season. Dickie Boy will see it as a job well done.

What a joke.

I asked the same question when we played the Astros: Is it better to sputter along as a 75 win team, hoping for a sudden stroke of luck and a fluke playoff run like the Rockies? Or is it better to start from scratch like the Marlins, accepting the likelihood of a 100 loss season while trying to build a pennant-caliber team in 3-5 years?

Guys, there is no plan, no intention, no timetable, for the team, the players, the farm system. It’s all day to day. Some days are good, some not, but who really cares as long as the suckers keep buying tickets.

The only plan is for DoD and Geivett to keep their jobs. And all they have to do is convince Dick Monfart.

Cisco/Rocketman, you can probably guess how I’d answer the question. I’d rebuild from scratch. Look at the 2 Marlins standouts tonight. Fernandez (the pitcher) was ranked as the 8th best prospect in baseball by respected analyst John Sickels preseason. Yelich (the hitting star) was ranked 12th. Our highest ranked prospect was Trevor Story at 47th (he’ll slide right off the list after this season), with Arenado following at 53rd. And Fernandez and Yelich are certainly worth watching as the Marlins… Read more »

I don’t know whether to give 5 stars for being depressingly right on, or 1 star for being depressingly right on

Hey guys and gals, make baseball fun again. Forget about the Rockies for a day or so. Go out and buy, or be lucky and have your kid buy for you, a copy of Baseball in Denver by Matthew Kasper Repplinger II. Published by Arcadia Publishing it”s a 127 page soft-cover look at the history of baseball in Denver beginning in 1862. Mostly photos with a blurb attached to each it’s a fun look at yesteryear. I’ve been in Denver… Read more »

Thanks, Bill. I will check it out! Broaden my perspective on the beloved game for a while.

Just got home tonight from the ball game at Coors. I was trying to decide whether it’s better for us to lose low scoring games or lose slugfests? I’ve decided I’d rather see low scoring games. We have to applaud the pitching staff for not allowing more than three or four runs a game over the last few weeks. The theory is if you have pitching, it will almost always be there. Offense is always up and down going thru… Read more »

Ringolsby was on the post game saying something about the low energy level of the team, especially when playing the sub .500 teams, and how they needed to find a way to elevate themselves. I talked with a guy who knows the Marlins GM (apparently an ex Rockies exec???). That guy’s take was that Rockies over value the calm, laid back players (think of any names that fit that billing?), so there’s never going to be any real “fire in… Read more »

I don’t know about fire in the eyes types, but it sure was a dull game. Glad I was present to see 17 hit one more homer. I may not go back this year (and no, I’m not worried about lining the Monforts’ pockets. Boycotting is a lame and futile plan.)
