DLR is simply afraid of the Dodgers hitters. Nibble, nibble. ANother 30 pitch first innning. Great approach.

On the road, so I’m listening to Vin scully call the game. At the end of three he called it as so: “Clayton has retired nine in a row.”

Welcome back to reality ya’ll.

Yep, that flukey sweep of the Giants was fun. While it lasted. Rude awakening — our “ace” DLR would be their 5th starter. Our # 2 (Chacin) wouldn’t even make their roster.

Correction: Haren is their 5th starter. He would beat out DLR. Our ace wouldnt even make their rotation.

Really, does DLR have anything left? He’s really not showing any velocity and has virtually no control to either RH or LH hitters. I mean he’s throwing BP.

Thanks, sh!thead DLR, for destroying whatever minimal trade value you might have had in these last 2 starts.

Thanks Hanley! Now I can turn this turd off–don’t have to stay up to watch Kershaw’s perfect game.

Can’t stand the Dodgers, but am rooting for Clayton to get his no-no. Just wish Hanley Ramirez hadn’t screwed up the perfecto. It’s what the Rox deserve. Perhaps (or not) it can serve as a catalyst. Though I’m not holding my breath.

A no-no is a no-no. Always a treat to watch.

We got no hit? Glad I pulled the plug on this one at about 10:00. Actually was a perfect game. Folks, the Dodgers are really, really good. The current injury-riddled Rockies are really, really crappy. (Cisco: interesting on Outman — his stats are pretty good, but his velocity is way down. I think we dumped damaged goods. Which would have been fine had we not spent big money on damaged goods Boone Logan to replace him!)

The Dodgers are hard to figure. Their starting pitching is the best in the league. Their lineup is good. Their D is serviceable. They should be in first by a mile.

Why didn’t someone plant a fastball in Matt Kemp’s substantial butt in response to that bubble machine in the dugout?

Rockies win 5 in a row while I was out of town. I came back on Monday afternoon and Rockies lose 3 straight. If I really had that kind of power I think I could make some money over that. Rocks had a chance in the first two games but a few bad pitches and too few (if any) clutch hits. Last night they had no chance. I watched and listened to parts of the game but went to bed… Read more »

I think DLR is still having back issues but tried to work thru them.Considering the starting M.A.S.H.unit it would only make sense.Remember ST when the pitching depth was talked up as one of this years strengths? Any chance you can go out of town again Bill?

You haven’t cornered the market on this, Bill. I went to Florida last Wednesday and returned on Monday. Rox won all 5 while I was out of town. Will the Rox buy me a retirement home down there?

Equally, my daughter returned home after living in Hawaii. She left there the last day the Rox were in first. Should we send her back? LOL

I turned it off at 8-0, top of 5th I think, and I KNEW they were getting no hits. I swear it. I watched the rest on DVR this morning and actually rooted for Kershaw to get it. A no-no is always fun, as IggyRox said, and I have no problem tipping my cap here. He seems like a good dude, too, which made it easier. And the Rockies’ place in the standings doesn’t matter, which made it easier still.… Read more »

I felt the same way and bailed next inning.

15K’s in route to a 107 pitch, complete game no-hitter that should have been a perfect game. Super impressive. There’s some interesting debate today in the sabremetric nerd-head baseball blogosphere world that it was one of the greatest no hitters ever. To K so many with a low pitch count says something truly great about Kershaw…….and something not so great about the Rox. Some above mention the Dodgers being really good (and they are), but I’m convinced they’re waaaaay too… Read more »

sdcarp, I read those articles suggesting Kershaw’s gem could be the “best pitched game ever.” At first I said, yeah, right. But it was really a perfect game (I don’t know why it doesn’t count if the only runner to reach was on an error), and never before in history has a pitcher thrown a no-hitter while striking out 15 or more AND not walking a single batter. I think they said he went to a 3 ball count on… Read more »

While it was a super impressive pitching performance, I think the rankness of the Rockies line-up was a big help, which may or may not be factored into the sabermetrics. Kershaw was pitching to a AAAA line-up (Tulo and Morneau the only two exceptions, and yes I’m considering the 2014 version of one D. Stubbs). Just too many inexperienced call-ups, including the first full game for K. Parker, who contributed 2 of the Ks and the keen eye of the… Read more »

I’m reminded every time Kershaw pitches that he coulda, shoulda, been a Rockie. It would be interesting to compare what his career would have been like if he’d been put into the Rox system. I can come up with a multitude of possibilities as to how he never would have panned out for us but have great difficulty seeing him a success.

Christian Friedrich on Sunday? Really? He of the 7.89 ERA in AAA? It’s gotten so bad that I can’t really say I’m bothered by that … what the hell, throw something out there, see if it sticks …

There was a brief ESPN “Insider” blog article earlier this week about this situation and that the Rox might be gun shy about bringing Gray up after what happened to Butler.

If that’s truly the reason they’re not bringing him up…….it makes no sense to me.

Whether to bring up Gray should have nothing to do with Butler. Either Gray is ready or he isn’t. Or maybe it’s that the Rockies think that someone else will be ready soon and they don’t won’t to deal with adding Gray to the 40 man roster and taking someone else off of the 40 man roster at this time. But I don’t see any of the other starting pitchers on the DL being ready any time soon, so whoever… Read more »

Friedrich is 1-8 with a 7.89 ERA in 13 starts. He’s served up 91 hits — including 11 home runs — in 67 1/3 innings. Really? Are they intentionally tanking the season?

Agbayani

Friedrich goes tomorrow, not Sunday. And they don’t even need to use a 5th starter since yesterday was an off day. So why call up the 7.89 ERA guy? The tanking the season thing makes some sense here, but again, why? It’s not like you really play for draft picks in baseball the way you would in the NFL. As for Gray: at least he’s been good at AA. Sure, ideally you’d wait, but he’ll be on an innings limit… Read more »
