Rox Hand the Ball to HR Kendrick

In the injury news, it is likely that both Brandon Barnes and Miguel Castro are done for the year.  For now long relievers David Hale and Christian Bergman will finish out the year in the rotation.

Kyle Kendrick who takes the ball on the hill today for Colorado is just the medicine the Dodgers need to get their offensive momentum going heading into the post season.  Taking bets – 2.5 over/under on HRs given up by Kendrick.  Bonus payout if Kendrick hits another HR himself.

Beautiful cloudless sky with little wind for the 6:10 pm start.  Our old friend Brett Andersen will keep the Rox hitters hitting worm burners tonight.  Our lineup is pretty much like the regular season except for Christian Adames (Tulo) and Doug Garneau (Hundley) at the bottom of the batting order.

We’ll see him only one more time. I won’t miss him. Morneau goes 4 for 4 tonight. Great game and he’s done great since coming back from his injury. But, as we’ve discussed before, what’s the point? It seems that Justin is playing his way to getting a… Read more »

Julian – I have to admit I’ve thought about the $$$$$ angle (from the twisted, pathetic perspective of the BSCS) regarding next year’s amateur draft myself. If it truly ends up being the year of 7-8 elite guys with no appreciable separation in talent among the group, then your comment regarding saving money may have merit. Let’s hope not, but it is the Rockies.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
