Rockies Play Little League Ball Today

After Christian Friedrich was staked to a 2-0 lead after one inning, the Rox suddenly played Little League ball allowing the Brewers to score eight runs in the second and third innings.  Almost all of them were preventable had the Rockies played their usual stout defense.  Finish my story in the comments below as I wrote this post game report after just three innings.  New day tomorrow, might we have the same old story?

The entire day summed up on one play:  Bases loaded by the Brewers; Milwaukee pitcher Peralta at plate with two outs and two strikes; Friedrich throws a WP (or was it passed ball by McKenry?); ball hit brick wall and came back to McKenry’s right; McKenry picks up and throws to the late arriving Friedrich – wild throw, another runner score on the error; while McKenry was bent over in a bit of pain standing right at the plate and Friedrich took a nap with the ball in his mitt ten feet from the plate;  third runner raced home beating Friedrich.  End result – 3 runners scored on one wild pitch.

This IS a minor league team trapped in an MLB ballpark.

Here’s a trade thought: Carlos Gonzalez straight up for Jurickson Profar. Here’s the logic: The Rangers are weathering their injuries rather well and are still in the race. They need OFers. Profar was the #1 Prospect in all of baseball in 2012. Made his debut in the Majors last year and was OK (but definitely not great). He hurt his shoulder in ST, and is likely out for the year. He’s still only 21, not arbitration eligible until 2016, and… Read more »

So lots of folks on here know more about the in’s/out’s/whathaveyou’s about the status of Rockies players and baseball trades in general than I do, but man, I’m ready for the “Herschel Walker” trade (knowing its probably apples/oranges comparing MLB and NFL). Why not get rid of Tulo/Cargo for a bunch of high level prospects that are very close to “Show Ready”. I know there’s probably not a team who would part with a bunch of loaded prospects (or maybe… Read more »

TJ – one VERY important thing to keep in mind with trades……teams generally assume the contract of the player they are receiving (sometimes they agree to share some of it or work out a cash swap also). So in regards to Cargo and Tulo, both have long term, big contracts (although….they not nearly as bad as some floating around out there in MLB). So if you trade that type player and want the receiving club to assume the contract, the… Read more »

Wow! Can they get any worse? I had work to catch up on so I turned on the radio in my office and listened to the top of the 2nd. That was enough. Glad I didn’t hear the rest of the game. As Ag said, what do you expect when you bring a guy up with a 1-8 record and an ERA of near 8. We know Josh Rutledge can’t play 3rd and he proved a few years ago that… Read more »

The fans at this fiasco should ask for their money back!

Some questions based on the most depressing game and last two series I can remember when we actually appeared as if we had a chance to win some. Why did we keep McHenry, who seems to be a nice guy, but certainly nothing to write home about and drop Pacheco, who at least stayed awake when he was playing and I thought was a decent catcher, certainly as good as any in this system. Why do we hang on to… Read more »

Julie, the Colorado Springs infield is already on the Rockies roster — Culberson, Wheeler, and Rutledge. I doubt that there are any other candidates there to play 3B for the Rockies. Does anyone know if Adames at Tulsa can play 3B? I would hope that given the presence of Tulo that the team has the foresight to provide him with the tools to be a good utility infielder. Of course, every year we shake our heads at how bad the… Read more »

My Dad, who would have been 99 this year, grew up in Brooklyn. He knew the saying which is what we should be saying, “Wait til next year”.
