There was nothing to talk about last night. Colorado had only one hit, a double by CarGo with two outs. He scored the only run on a 3-in-1 gift from Miami – IBB, BB, HBP.
They are now back to two games under .500. Their quest to climb back to .500 will take a serious blow if they cannot start hitting against #3, #4, or #5 starters. Winning the next three games is pretty much a “must” as they likely will lose when they face C.C. Sabathia in New York for two more games against the Yankees. C.C. is the hottest pitcher going in the majors with a sub-1.00 ERA over the last four or six starts.
CarGo needs to continue producing to enhance his trade value with the trade deadline coming in about 6-7 weeks. There are other OFs that are rumored to be on the block. It was rumored that San Francisco was talking to Milwaukee about Ryan Braun. It is well-known that Jay Bruce is on the trading block. So JB must be proactive unless the return is unworthy.
The game begins at 2:10 MDT today and it will be televised on ROOT-RM as usual.
