Thanks a lot Kyle Kendrick for pitching with a rotator cuff (?), That cost Colorado at least five games that you gave up multiple HRs. Now the rotation is reduced to spaghetti bowl starring DLR and Rusin as the meatballs and everybody else noodles. Today the noodle is Yohan Flande who will be lucky to go five innings. Who will be the piggyback guy? Aaron Laffey who will probably be DFA’ed after the game for the second time this year.
At least Kyle Parker has finally been unblocked and will be starting in LF while protecting NoDo in the batting order. Jaime Garcia will be tossing for St. Louis who has the best home record in all of baseball. A win today will allow the Rockies to go home with a series split in the toughest ball park this year. The Cardinals were fortunate to steal one game in the opening game of the series when WW continued using John Axford long after he has fallen off the cliff.
