Do you guys think Nelson and LeMehieu are adequate at 2B to start next year? I think unless the Rox make major upgrade (meaning much better than Ellis or Scutaro) they deserve it. Focus on other areas.

Agree Prog.Enough all ready.The five year revolving door there has been a distraction and a big waste of money.Nelson has made some gems recently and BA is improving.Its pitching-pitching-pitching,and more pitching as the main focus until next spring.The bullpen is solid,and better than I expected,but something must be done[blockbuster]for a starter or half a dozen.Garza,and Dempster are supposedly being shopped.Greinke maybe in final year.I’m ready for a mini Neagle type deal.Todd’s salary is going away after one more year which… Read more »

No, no and no – Nelson & LeMaheiu are not the answers at second base! DanO should have resigned Mark Ellis, but nope that was the way too easy to have done. Now Scutaro should be resigned for $7.5 over two years. That’s the market and he is an excellent MLB professional, something we have rarely had at second base over the years. Rumor has it the Rockies never made a free agent offer to MIllwood either. Now is it… Read more »

I’m sure I’m not the first to post this thought… In light of the hideous starting pitching for the Rockies, I’ve kind of kept an eye on some other guys who used to wear purple, and am curious as to what the difference is in their games this year. Jason Hammel… one hit, complete game shutout tonight. Franklin Morales, great success (and spot start on Sunday) with the Bosox (in their bandbox). Felipe Paulino. Kevin Millwood. Yes, Ubaldo Jimenez. Even… Read more »

I keep screaming that no other pitching coach,whose staff has an above 6.00ERA,should survive another day at his job!!!And I too like “Dac”.Seems like a decent guy,but the results don’t lie.Hamnel was just maddening.I,like many here,kept waiting for him to “get it”.Guess he’s “got it”now!

The Orioles comitted MLB robbery acquiring two of the Rockies legit and experienced pitchers for Guthrie. Least we forget – let’s recap DanO’s 2011-2012 off season: 1. Guthrie – nuff said on that $8.0m mistake. Hated this deal from the get go as it makes (made) no sense. 2. Cuddyer – nice player howver making $3.5m per year more than he is actually worth (comp Willingham). For those who are math challenged that is over $10m that could have been… Read more »

The DP quoted Friedrich today: “It’s about mind-set…Sometimes I overanalyze. I just need to stay aggressive. When I’m mixing all four of my pitches and trusting it, that’s when it call comes together.” I’ve been saying for years that the Rox need a team shrink or at least someone who can remind them over and over that playing at altitude is a different game and you should expect different results. Coors Field gets in their heads, the pitchers think they… Read more »
