There were multiple reasons why the Rockies lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates today, dropping another series in a long long season, but the most glaring was the continued hate-hate relationship Jeremy Guthrie has with Coors.
Guthrie Must Go. Period.
Today’s Line: 2.2 IP, 6 R, 2 HR
Coors Field ERA: 9.51
HR’s Given Up:21 (15 at Coors)…most in the NL
Salary This Season: $8.2 MM
I went out there to throw strikes and be aggressive. I felt great but the results just weren’t there.
I don’t think his breaking ball really does what he wants it to do here…But whether it’s this ballpark or any other ballpark, you can’t get behind in the count and you can’t leave breaking balls up. I really don’t want to sit here and create a crutch that you can’t pitch in this park. You can, and we have seen it here of late with Jeff Francis.
If any team acquires jeremy guthrie, one tip: dont use at coors.
It’s a joke if Guthrie is still a Rockie by tomorrow.
Napoleon had a better record at Waterloo than Jeremy Guthrie has at Coors Field. My math might be off a bit, but Jeremy Guthrie gives up 13.6 Home Runs per start
