The Rockies and Padres will observe a moment of silence before their game tonight in honor of the victims of the Aurora shooting. Reminiscent of the 1999 Columbine shootings, which saw the team cancel back-to-back games, the difficulty of the Rockies to play during the tragedies at home can only be imagined.
In team news, today the team swapped pitchers with the KC Royals: Guthrie for Jonathan Sanchez. Both pitchers have been struggling mightily for their respective teams and hope that a fresh start will bring about a Francis like results who has pitched the best of the group since his return.
