New Rockies Pitcher Jurrjens Makes Start

Jair Jurrjens who was acquired a couple of days ago for essentially free (Tulsa first baseman Harold Riggins) from the Cincinnati farm system makes his first start tonight.  He is a shell himself pre-2012.  At least it gives the Rockies a breathing chance to beat perennial Cy Young candidate Clayton Kershaw.  Boone Logan is expected to be activated today or tomorrow.  (no roster moves yet as of writing) It appears that Walt Weiss is going with the lineup that best gives the Rox a chance to hit against Kershaw.  No Tulo (he has bad history against Kershaw?) Took Dickerson out of lineup to make one less left handed bat. Rutledge and Arenado 2-3 in lineup.  McKenry in for Baby Bull.  Wow.  Looks like a Sunday lineup.

Hate to be negative, but normally Kershaw is lights out. Of course, he might falter and changes can be made if Walt wants to (?)
