Rockies Smell First Place vs. Dodgers 4/23/2016

Tyler Chatwood starts tonight and he hopes to continue his Chatacular performance from last Sunday.  Dodgers might be a slugging team, but Chatwood is very capable of keeping the balls on the ground.  WW shook up his lineup a little bit moving up Tulo2.7 into the leadoff spot while Little Pony, NoDo, and Geraldo Parra will hit 2-3-4 spots.

Not much to say about the game. Honestly, Kenta Maeda pitched fabulously. I do the the Dodgers are weak between their SP and Kenley Jansen. They’ll be in the market for bullpen arms in July (if not sooner) .

From our end – we’re missing Blackmon. It’s throwing the rest of the lineup out-of-sync because we don’t have another lead-off hitter. That being said…..it does appear as though Story is taking more pitches.

Sunday optimism: squint really hard and you can almost see the Planet Alignment Theory, 2016 (.500) version developing.

Bettis, DLR (he’ll be fine this year after driving us nuts again), Chatwood, Gray (you saw the talent come through, now he needs to follow Bettis’ lead), Lyles (bad start, but he’s been roughly league average as a Rockie). –… Read more »

Things that make you go hmmmmmmmmmmmmm:

“Jorge De La Rosa could be scratched from Monday’s scheduled start against the Pirates due to illness.

De La Rosa has been under the weather, although he was able to throw a bullpen session over the weekend. If he’s unable to go Monday, Chris Rusin will get the ball. ”

Of course we JDLR has been battling a bad case of the “sucks” pitching flu all Spring.
