After getting swept by the Pirates in Pittsburgh last week, the Rockies attempt to return the favor with Brett Anderson (0-3, 4.00) starting the series. Tyler Matzek and Kerosene follow Anderson to hopefully bring Pittsburgh back to earth where they belong. Colorado continues with an eight-man bullpen and a four-man bench which consists of two OFs, backup catcher, and utility guy. CarGo is back from his two-day rest cleaning up (his own mess) and Ben Paulsen will attempt to take Charlie Morton (5-9, 3.28) to school.
The trade wind has picked up a little bit with the deadline looming. Chris Capuano, who neither appeared in a Rockies game nor was on the 40-man roster, was given to the Yankees in exchange for cash considerations. Seattle has inquired about Drew Stubbs and New York Mets were kicking the tires on Tulo.
