Can’t Travel, Can’t Hit

Christian Bergman (2-3, 4.89) once again did the required task of keeping the Rockies in the game going six innings while giving up two runs.  Yohan Flande and Three Mile Island finished the game all for naught.  As rockymountainhigh projected, Colorado never score runs other than hitting home runs when they are on the road.  Sure they loaded the bases with one out in the last inning.  Sure they can’t RISP hit at all striking out and rolling over a weak ground ball to end the game harmlessly.  Colorado plays one more game in New York before they travel to St. Louis.  They will be lucky to score more than five runs total over the next four games, not counting home runs.  The New York Mets twice manufactured runs with two outs for a 2-0 final.

Ed predicted 2 runs from today’s murderer’s row. But that’s Ed and his unbounded optimism for you. Meanwhile, as I always say when we play another bad team: who will make the playoffs first, the Mets or the Rockies? The Mets will come back next year with Matt Harvey-Zack Wheeler-Jacob deGrom (apparently the bastard child of Carrot Top and Bronson Arroyo)-Jon Niese as their 1-2-3-4 starters. As a reminder, last year I asked the same question about the Marlins and… Read more »

Way to keep a sense of humor Ag-really a good one.I blame it on Wilin since he grounded out with the bases loaded lol.

Top of the 9th, 3 on base 1 out. The left fielder strikes out on ball 4, a pitch at eye level. He has a good average but he is not a good hitter if he cannot recognize where the game is at that moment and where he needs to fit in to it.

Dickerson cannot hit in any kind of pressure situation, not unique among the Rockies, but he has NO feel for situational hitting. Simply wants to hit the big fly. Rosario cannot lay off the off speed stuff. Where oh where is Jonny Herrera when you need a fricking single. I don’t know where the kids get the HR fever. Game after game they go down to defeat because they can’t hit with RISP. Game after game the opponent does them… Read more »

Dickerson’s batting average with runners in scoring position is .333, so not bad. He didn’t come through last night, but I think that overall he’s been good and I’m happy to pencil him into the starting lineup next year.

Bergman continues to look like a decent stopgap #5 starter for next year’s rotation.

All his pitches seem to have alot of movement.Unfortunately,some move to the center of the plate.His fast pace is certainly refreshing,especially compared to the “human rain delay”JDLR.
