Doubtful

Can the Rockies have fewer strikeouts than hits? Doubtful. Can the Rockies score runs other than home runs? Doubtful. Can the Rockies win? Doubtful. Can the bullcrap put up zeroes on the scoreboard? Doubtful. Can the Rockies lose less than 100 games? Doubtful. Tyler Matzek (2-7, 5.32) will attempt to prove the Doubting Thomases wrong against Ian Kennedy (8-10, 3.51) in an afternoon game today. Fort McKenry goes behind the plate in lieu of Wiltin’ Rosario.

As I just mentioned in a different thread Dickerson leaves a lot to be desired in the base-running department. That play where he was just doubled off first is one for the ages.

You’ve got to be kidding about Dickerson.He is the only reason left to watch-both for the good and bad.He is an exciting player,who is basicly a rookie.He is hitting and hitting for power ON THE FREAKIN ROAD!

I think we all knew Tulo was done for year…..now it’s official. Hip labrum surgery in Vail early next week.

I could say…………………(but I won’t) 🙂

ARod was the last hip labrum problem I know of. Any similarities there?

Great analogy, Ag. Can’t help but wonder if the pitching would have held up if any of these “injuries” would have played out like they have. Remember last year Cuddyer saying he was ready to go but management told him to close it down. All part of the DOD culture.

Again, the Rockies medical staff seemed to be asleep at that wheel on this as in so many others. I understand that surgery sucks. I get it. I’ve had a major surgery and a minor surgery, although when it happens to you any surgery is major. And I’ll avoid any future surgeries if at all possible. But my physical condition, other than normal health, is not important to me and my job. It is for Tulo and the Rockies. Are… Read more »

Why does it take a month to diagnose the true nature of the injury? I would think an MRI would be called for right away, given Tulo’s history of upper leg injuries. Sometimes I get the impression that trainers are like witch doctors, instead of letting physicians assess they use rehab therapies and frankly put the player at risk of greater damage. At this point I think you have to say Tulo will never play more than 90-100 games per… Read more »

RocketMan. Everything you say is true, especially about Tulo moving to another position. But when he plays short, he’s the the best there is. Perhaps not the best ever, but his arm, his range is incredible. But of course if he only can play half a season at short then he should move to another position. Yet, he didn’t get hurt fielding a ball, he got hurt running to first. Maybe too many muscles. Never been my problem.

Several days ago I ranted that this is why Tulo and Cargo have to be traded.We are over paying for 80-100 games.Obviously they are less valuable now but if we play hardball with teams that really want them[Yanks,Mets,Cards] we could get good return and free up payroll.Tulo went from day to day to surgery.Truly a shame for him as I think he was headed for his first MVP award.Put the savings into totally rebuilding bullpen.ROX supposedly resigned Josh Roenicke to… Read more »

In my opinion…..the single worst decision in Rox history (I’m not exaggerating) was not trading Tulo before the AS break this season. Look at what the Cubs got for Smardjzia. That decision will set the Rox back 5 years minimum.

Hmmm, Tulo done for the year…Hmmm,seems I heard rumblings of that last weekend…Hmmm I’ve said it too many here at RWO and to friends at Coors Field before departing for New Mexico…Tulo will never play another game for the Rox. He will be a Yankee come next spring and we will receive less than what we could get for him if he wasn’t so injury prone. Our lineup for opening day, 2015… C … our favorite, No callin’ Willin 1B…the… Read more »

Unfortunately Ed – the only way we get anything (and I mean anything – aka journeyman relief pitcher) for Tulo is if we pick up a significant part of his salary. We’re not getting a #3 SP (even by our low standards) for him.

Gray wouldn’t start the year in the pen, he is a starter and would be at Tulsa. Why on earth would we re-sign Cuddyer, he is as injury prone as the rest and at 35, why bother. Play Dickerson, watch him make baserunning mistakes, but remember that this guy was touted as one of the worst defensive players going and has improved there, the baserunning mistakes is mostly due to over aggresiveness. Give me the guy that goes out every… Read more »
