Rockies Bullpen Is, Well, Bull

Brett Anderson was rusty in  his first inning giving up a parade of hits with two outs gone in the first inning that totaled five runs.  He settled down to pitch five innings while giving up one more run on a triple and error for error-aided inside-the-park home run.  The Rockies in the meantime worked to scored four runs over the first two innings and scratched out another run in the fifth inning to narrow the deficit to 6-5.  Tommy Kahnle, who has been consistent, pitched a clean 6th inning.  Then came the usual bullpen issue among the same people.  They went on to give up seven more runs over the last three innings to help the Minnesota Twins put the game away.

Baby Bull had an awful day with his pitching calling and defense.  This is just my opinion, but when it was clear that Anderson was throwing fastballs center of the plate (in the first inning) you change up the routine and start calling sliders to stay away from center cut fastballs.  Later he added salt in the  wound when he gave up a passed ball with the bases loaded on the first pitch thrown by Zero.

This morning (Monday) Dick Montfort was supposed to meet up with a fan, Christine Voss, over breakfast to talk Rockies baseball.  Voss was the one who wrote the letter and Montfort fired back an unethical reply.  That would be her golden chance to tell Dick to hire a president and get the heck out of the way.

Just listened to Christine’s report aired on the Denver Post web site. Accompanying Hochman article also pretty much spells it out–we’re stuck with this dog and pony show forever. It’ll be interesting to see the players reaction.

sdcarp, the Cubs apparently claiming Jacob Turner off Marlins waivers is a real headscratcher. That means the Rockies passed on him. He’s affordable, still 23, no sign of arm trouble, kind of a Jordan Lyles/Tyler Chatwood guy. Cubs will have to work out a deal with the Marlins, but it’s likely that they won’t send much in return. I can’t understand not using the leverage the worst record in the NL gives you in these situations (worst team in your… Read more »

The Cubs claimed Cole Hamels also. Interestingly…..the Cubs DFA’d Nate Schierholtz. That dude has hit some long HRs in Coors.

You’re exactly right – Turner is worth a claim. Sergio Santos was worth a claim.

The Clown Show has no plan. They’re paralyzed from the neck up.

Cubs worked out their Jacob Turner deal – they sent 2 minor leaguers to the Marlins, both older than Turner, both still in Low A ball … in other words, nothing. Epstein quoted as saying they’ve had some success turning talented pitchers around, they’ll try with Turner too. But us? We’re stickin’ with the Flande Era!
