Last night was a perfect illustration of the Rockies’ need to have pitchers with pinpoint control. All those free passes issued last night by the pitching staff aided Arizona’s big innings.
Today appears to be a throw away game; Daniel Descalso and Rafael Ynoa will be the double play combo while CarGo sits out another game. Fort McKenry is in for Nick Hundley. Ben Paulsen is asked to be the clean up hitter today. Fuggetboutit today. It’s amazing that the day after Walt Weiss for maybe the first time ever pieced together bullpen early to hang on to the lead to get the ball to the Ax, he turns around and throws away the rubber game of a three-game series. Will the real WW please stand up?
Don’t forget to stuff the ballot for Arenado before voting deadline. He is currently in fourth place even though he is easily the best third baseman if you factor in both defense and hitting. Also help move Giancarlo Stanton move up into the starting OF.
The game will not be televised by ROOT_RM today. Thank goodness with this lineup today. If you have MLB.TV and live outside the Rockies and Arizona viewing areas, you can watch the game live on your computer, tablet, or cell.
