Rox @ Arizona 4/5/2016 lineup

RWO Rox lineup.jpg

Game two at Chase Field 7:40 pm start time; ROOT Rocky Mountain TV; 850 AM radio.

Chad Bettis goes on the bump to try to extend the Rockies win streak to two and remain in first place in the NL West division.  But he will be up against Shelby Miller, another prized acquisition in the off-season by Arizona.

The goal tonight is to try to score multiple runs early and often and make it a short outing by Miller.  The hitters have to continue to put balls in play while keeping strikeouts to a minimum.

All these HRs are no doubters too! The new Jefferson Street Bombers! (I had to look up the location of the Dbacks field). I’m loving this.

Blackmon is seeing a lot of pitches. It’s Red Sox-esque.

Let’s see if Chettis can do what JDLR couldn’t – throw about 3 more semi-clean innings.

FWIW – I snagged Story for $10, Chettis for $1, and Mark Reynolds for $1 in my Fantasy Auction this past weekend.

Arenado went for $44. Donaldson and Machado both went for $45. Trout for $56. All not to me. My biggest buy was Chris Archer for $40 and David Price for $39. Like the trend in real baseball, I went for the killer BP with Kenley Jansen, Familia, Andrew Miller, Betances, and Koji Uehara (we count Holds).

Well……Chettis essentially a replay of JDLR. SPers have to do better. Just approach average.

I hate these double switches when they involve a hitter as weak as Adames. I’d rather send the reliever (Bergman) out there to hit than pull a decent hitter and superb defender like LeMahieu in the 5th inning (last night) or the 7th (tonight). The value added by having a guy like Adames essentially pinch hit just doesn’t justify sending an important player out of the game.

Weiss is a loser. Leaving Bergman in! So dumb

Seriously? Why the hell do you put Bergman in the 7th?

And then Gurka to pitch to righties. Of course, with the weird 4-lefty pen there isn’t a whole lot of other guys to turn to.

Weiss has a loser mentality and lost this game!

Yes, it’s a marathon not a sprint and all that. But when you have a lead in the 6th inning and hand the ball to your 2 worst pitchers — in the SECOND GAME of the season, with an off day on Thursday — well, that is a loser mentality.

Blame for yesterday’s loss: 1. De La Rosa. He had a 6 run lead on opening day, but he melted down in the 5th. Unable to even throw a strike, Weiss was forced to pull him. If DLR even makes it through 6, one of our better relievers (Miller, Logan) is out there last night instead of Bergman. And the result is probably very different.

That would have helped, but Chettis wasn’t exactly swell leading up to another early starter exit by him.
