Happy Days Are Here Again

The Rockies got to work early today when Tulo came out as the leader and spokesman for his comrades boldly declaring that “something needs to change” with the Rockies before 2015.  It appeared to fire up Colorado tonight as they rallied from 3-0 and 4-3 deficits before blowing the game wide open with seven straight hits off Jake Arietta for a six-run sixth inning.  Colorado then added four more runs off Chris Rusin the next inning for a 13-4 lead which became a final.  The shocking news was that the bullpen (Matt Belisle, Tommy Kahnle, and Brooks Brown) issued only one free pass over the last three innings.  The offensive stars were CarGo, Corey Dickerson, and Fort McKenry who batted 5-6-7 in the lineup.  They had 10 hits and eight RBIs combined including two home runs, a triple, and two doubles.  Now that’s Rockies baseball as we know it.  On the mound, Jordan Lyles went six innings giving up four runs to raise his record to 6-1.

Its so easy to forget how good Cargo really is until he reminds us with great defense[last two weeks] or exciting offense like tonight.Loved Lyles interview after the game about how he used off time to perfect a totally new change-up which he thinks is really going to make him a better pitcher.Threw it 20 times in the win out of 93 pitches!I like the kid.He’s a keeper if he can stay healthy.Probably be shutout tomorrow but tonight was fun… Read more »

Troy’s quote:

“Something needs to change. Hopefully that comes fairly quickly,” Tulowitzki said, according to the Post. “You can’t force it. But at the same time, we’re all frustrated with this year — especially me.”

I disagree with one small part of it. It can be forced. Fire the front office. That can happen in 5 minutes. Look west to the Padres. They played 2 months without a GM…..and made some good moves! Otherwise……raise hell Tulo!

Tulo’s quotes in that article may be our last hope for Dick Monfort to get a clue and fire the management team. Tulo says he wants to stay, but stay and win. The only thing that O’Dowd has proven adept at is keeping his job.

Good for Tulo to speak his mind (and somewhat eloquently – did he get some advice from handlers? I didn’t see this on TV if it was, and he’s better in print regardless). HOWEVER. The useless owner would never act just because his star speaks truth. Dick would look weak and clueless then, right? :8

“somthing has to change” – my guess is Tulo and Cuddy join Cargo again, Lyles pitches o.k., Anderson misses a couple starts but (with money next year on the line) pitches well in September … and Monfort/O’Dowd say something like, “we played .500 ball the last 6 weeks of the season, .600 ball the first 6 weeks with everyone healthy, we think with everyone healthy we can win 90 next year with this roster.”

Just back from SABR convention in Houston where an abysmal team is starting to look up. They won’t lose 100 this year so that’s a plus for them. As for the Rox, they’ll lose 100 if they don’t get on track. Last night could have been a blip on the radar. Stringing together some wins against the division this weekend can help upright this Titanic, but don’t hold yer breath. I love cliches, just not from baseball players so try… Read more »

Well, now we will see if Dick Monfort truly cares about what others think/winning or if he is just happy with money and hanging with his buddies. The local media has started to consistently kill him (although it has slowed down since Broncos training camp started), the national media has killed him, and now his own players are calling for change. If DoD and the whole system aren’t blown up (including player development- this whole Mark Wiley head of pitching… Read more »

I should also say that at this point it has become obvious that the biggest problem with the FO of the Rockies is not DoD, Geivett, or anyone else below them but with Monfort sticking his nose in. He needs to get a President of Baseball in and hold that person accountable on a win/loss basis, and then stick to making Coors field a fantastic place to watch baseball. It will also help him with the fans in the future… Read more »

I hear you, Mike, but I am so pessimistic with this management that I believe a higher draft pick will not likely result in getting a better player.
