The DeaLeR vs Cubbies

Today’s lineup against the cubs looked a lot like a potential opening day lineup.  Hopefully the showing by the pitching staff will carry through to opening day as well.

Tulowitzki was 2 for 2 with 2 RBI’s, the only runs of the game.  He also showed his surgery was holding up when he came to a full running stop rounding third without any pain.

De La Rosa, who started the game, did give up four hits, but was able to pitch himself out of two bases-loaded jams and after four innings he was able to hit the showers knowing he didn’t give up a single run and, even more impressive, struck out six.

Corpas, Outman, Kensing and Harris completed the shutout, going the last five innings with a combined two-hit, no run affair.

Yeah, where is Egossage — no one to beat up on Fowler anymore! Rockies pitching showing some signs of life. Yeah, it was the Cubs, but reports say DLR was hitting 94, and for the first time looking like pre-surgery guy. Reports (of dubious reliability) also says Chacin was finally looking like his pre-injury self in a simulated game. The fan’s dream that DLR/Chacin/Nicasio are all back to pre-injury form lives on, at least for a while … … As… Read more »

So lets get this right – DLR is showing signs of life. So is Chacin. Chatwood and Pomeranz have shown some glimmers of hope. And of course Francis is Francis. Volstad is in the mix. Make no mistake – this is NOT a good starting rotation, but it also has very realistic potential to be much better last year (insert standard injury waiver here!). If these guys take their turns, Nicasio could move to the pen as the long guy.… Read more »

“this is NOT a good starting rotation” – compared to what? History says the Rox will never have a stud starting pitcher that lasts longer than two years. This is a good rotation for what we need to win games at high altitude – just pitch longer than the opposing pitcher and leave with a lead. We have three upside potentials (Pomeranz, Chacin, and DLR) and we need just one of them to have a breakout/comeback year to get 15… Read more »

RWOers… Just to let you know, as if you care, I’m betting the over when I go to Vegas next week. I’m hoping the over/under line is 73. I just have to believe that the Rox can get at least 74 wins in 2013…BUT…be very careful…I’ve never cashed in 6 tries at the over/under no matter which side I take. Will this be the year I win some cash? To say that all of us here at RWO will be… Read more »

Yea, Ed, see what kind of odds they will give you for an over/under at 90.5, then bet the under. With your history we could then all get in line for playoff tix. And just to clarify from an earlier post, the over/under pays 1-1, or 2 for 1. You bet a dollar, you win a dollar. You spend one dollar at the window, you collect two dollars when you cash out. So when you lay down your $100 to… Read more »

Hey everyone! It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. Mostly because there isn’t really anything to say about the Rockies other than what everyone else is saying. No pitching and the offense can’t hit on the road and in key situations. I think this is the first time I’m not excited for Rockies baseball to start. Having said that I got a new job up in Denver located on 20th and Arapahoe so I’m sure I’ll be going to a few… Read more »

I encourage you to keep talking down Fowler as it seems like he plays way better when you criticize him! Keep the superstition going for me. 🙂 Congrats on the new job being so close to Coors. You will have to get me parking permit in your parking lot for my Tuesday night Guys Night Out games. 🙂 By the way, anyone interested in going to the Rockies-Brewers season opener at Miller Park on April 1st? A third person backed… Read more »

I’d rather read that than “Rockies Nicasio, Rosario and Helton struggle vs. Diamondbacks’ minor league teams”

Not sure what the disappointment is. They wanted to get these guys into some game action.

Hell has frozen over….Tulo stopped Tuesday to sign autographs for a couple kids. And, I will go on record AGAIN as saying —- he is limping. Very slight limp, but watched him walk out away from the fans at Glendale and I saw it again. Last year I kept saying “why is Tulo limping”. I am willing to eat my words if he ends up okay this year.

In my opinion, Tulo has had a noticeable limp ever since the first time he tore his hamstring.
