Apparently Colorado Rockies have had too much Coors beer early in an 8-4 loss to the Houston Astros. They quickly answered Preston Tucker’s solo shot in the first inning by scoring three on CarGo’s three run line shot after a double by Charlie Blackmon and a walk by Deej. Then they got drunk and put the bats away. They had only five more singles the rest of the game while striking out 11 times. With the Astros leading 5-3 in the eighth inning, blew the game open with a three run homer by pinch hitter Domingo Santana (who?) off Scott Gopherg.
The RWOers have basically turned their attention to discussing how to rebuild the Rockies. Nuclear blowup? Rebuild? A couple of pieces here and there? Jon Gray arrival? What model do we follow? Moneyball? Who should replace the Montfarts? Fire Walt Weiss? Jeff Bridich? Who should be the trade baits before the deadline? Who should be September call ups? Drew Stubbs? Bench players? This list is endless but it starts at the top of the organization which we are unfortunate to have concrete poured onto anchors and they are immovable.
I’m still beating the drums to hire Steve Young the ex-NFL QB to replace Kelli McGregor. Or at least replace KSM.
For those who still can’t live without the Rockies’ game (like myself), they play on this weekend in a three-game set at Coors Field against the Milwaukee Brewers. Tonight is probably the only chance Colorado could win a game with Jorge De La Rosa and his great Coors Field record on the bump.
