Rockies Snooze and Lose, 4-3

Rockies scored three runs in the first inning.  Then the lights were turned off for the next six plus hours.  In the 16th inning, the Cubs used catcher John Baker to pitch the top of the inning and Colorado looked like Pee Wee leaguers hitting into a double play and popping up 75 MPH fastballs.  Then in the bottom of the 16th, Baker walked (of course) to lead off the inning and came around to score on a shallow sac fly by Starlin Castro.  Ladies and gentlemen, the Colorado Rockies has officially set a new low bar in major league history for bad baseball.

Numerous rally killing double play grounders.

Numerous runners on third and less than two outs.

Failed suicide squeeze.

No offense for 15 innings (all zeroes).

So I was back and forth between the longest game in Rockies and WRIGLEY history and real life.So Baker comes in throwing 75mph heaters and ROX decide to tee off like BP.The thing that really pissed me off was that this guy was obviously struggling and after Stubbs reached.an obvious base stealer,the next guy up swings at the first DAMN pitch-DP inning over.Now even if Stubbs’injured ankle prevented him from stealing you’ve got a total MLB novice in a high… Read more »

In a season of low points, this could be the lowest low point. So, it’s now July 30. Morneau appears to be healthy again. CarGo’s season seems to be going nowhere but he might be healthy again. The relievers pitch a lot of shutout innings. The owners have said that we can’t compete every year. That’s certainly true this year. So pick a year, and line up the prospects to compete in that year. I vote for 2016. So trade… Read more »

Game featured Cargo leaving around the 11th inning, apparently suffering from boredom too. (Why would you want to keep his bat in there when you can let Adames make his MLB debut in extra innings?). We were beaten by a catcher pitching 1 shutout inning and then coming back in the bottom half to score the winning run. I bet that’s never happened in the history of baseball — a position player gets the W and also scores the winning… Read more »

Each day we think that it can’t get any worse, but the Rox continue to surprise and outdo themselves once again.

Wow … now the NY media has Brett Anderson going to the Yankees. I wish they would make up their mind. Is it Tulo or Anderson or both? Do they make this stuff up as they go?

Ag, it has been alleged that something has been up with Rutledge this season. Due to HIPA stuff is not getting released to the media.

RMH, Speaking of Geivett, has anyone noticed that since that article appeared on the internet of problems between Geivett and WW involving philosophical differences we’ve seen WW scrap the 100 pitch limit with starters? DLR had over 120 pitches last night and 112 in his last outing. Anderson has also gone over the 100 pitch limit as well recently. Is this WW saying screw it, fire me if you want, I’ll do it my way. Or is it the higher… Read more »

I also noticed this and assumed Walt won the argument,especially after Monfort seemed to throw Geivett under the bus.Apparently throwing 100+ pitches isn’t as damaging as eating the wrong foods,catching a cold,sleeping wrong,or walking around the house when it comes to injury.

According to MLB Trade Rumors the Rockies seem to be happy with every member of their club and they are going to hold tight for next year…

I can see keeping Tulo, Cargo, maybe even see keeping Anderson. But De La Rosa and Hawkins, Cuddyer, Morneau, and Stubbs?? Come on!!! Maximize on value! Build depth!

Just like Colvin, they will hold onto Stubbs until he has zero value. They have no damn clue!

Just cover a recent topic, trading a player on the DL, it just happened. Masterson, who is on the DL, was just traded to the Cardinals. I know the DP and a couple of other sites recently gave the impression players on the DL can’t be traded.
