Let’s start a new thread for tonight’s (Tuesday’s) game. What in the holy baseball alternate universe has the Rockies better on the road?
Chris Rusin needs to prove something. Like: he can be slightly better than serviceable. CarGo needs to hit a home run (his longest drought, 20 games, since sometime in 2012). Justin Miller needs to have only one more chance.
I have to wonder, along with Bill, Pooter, and others, why Walt still has his job. Is it a remnant (or continuation) of the Rockies’ management’s unfathomable loyalty? (Hey – I love Walt and I wanted him to do this, and thought he might.) Most other teams would be putting the laser on him. Is it the Monfort leash on Bridich? (don’t know if Jeff even has the authority to hire/fire the manager).
Good stuff: the young hurlers are showing up in the minors. Also the young hitters. Note to the youngsters: get here before Nolan is gone.
