Rox Play Spoiler Role vs. Giants 9/3

It’s obvious now that the Rockies are playing out their string for the rest of the year.  According to sdcarp, Jon Gray has been shut down for the year.  I couldn’t find the source so I’m trusting sdcarp with reliability.  The Giants are coming to Coors like angry men coming off a sweep by the Dodgers pushing them farther away from the NL West title.  To their credit, Colorado will fight them to death just to mess up the Giants’ plans.

As of 5:30 pm, it looks very gray and some rain falling at Coors.  The question is are we having yet another rain delay this year?  2015 must be the once in a century occurrence in terms of the number of rain delays this year.

I’ve actually – for the first time – been hoping we lose every game the rest of the season because i feel that “magic 100 mark” will be something undeniable to DMon and hopefully he will feel like turning the reigns over to someone else. He started to make significant moves (Tulo, etc.) but it was too little for what we needed going forward. It isn’t too late though and if they are gonna do ANYTHING this winter (unlike pretty… Read more »

RMH – my source was Twitter…..so it has to be right, right?

Me thinks the Giants season is on the ropes.

Does it really surprise anyone that Lincecum is having hip surgery (and I’m sort of a Lincecum fan). All these years of torquing that hip to generate his velocity has surely taken a toll.

I challenge all RWOers to look at the pending FA OF class of 2016, and the salaries they’ll command, and then tell me Cargo isn’t a screamin’ deal. Bridich needs to setup a booth at the front entrance to the Winter Meetings Hotel and play the “Lets Make a Deal” song non-stop.

Carp, I agree. He’s back to being one of the best players in baseball.

He really is. To the skeptics (those that want hang on to him) – he’s signed for 2 more years. We’re not going to be good in 16 or 17. So even if he has 2 MVP seasons, we’re still a losing team. Then he walks and we get a compensation pick. Trade him this offseason, we gain 37M and get a package of pitchers similar to the Tulo deal. I love Cargo. I’ve always been more of a Cargo… Read more »

Oops – please make that Miguel Sano……not Cano.

Also, have any of you seen Byron Buxton (the other Twins young stud) run? Is the fastest guy in baseball (sorry Billy Hamilton)? He hasn’t adjusted to Major League pitching yet…..but what a talent.

sdcarp: “We’re not going to be good in 16 or 17.” WAIT, not so fast … I’m working on my 2016 Planet Alignment Theory! Coming soon …

You now I don’t like PATs. In fact – I like just the opposite. I want to be so stinkin’ good that we still make the playoffs even when a couple of the planets get sucked into a black hole. Relying on PAT is like building a house without a foundation.

Matzek yesterday: 2 IP, 3 K, 0 BB. Not a typo. Zero walks. That hasn’t happened all year. Matzek = Uranus in alignment. (hah! I made a joke)

And Jeff Hoffman: 5 IP, 1 R, 3 BB, 3 K. Probably finishes up a successful (albeit short) season returning from TJ. Chatwood has now made 2 appearances at Modesto … 1 run allowed … haven’t seen him pitch but obviously nothing disastrous … I tell you, this is the dawning of the age of Weissquarius …

Chatwood should DEFINITELY be converted to a RP. The history of two TJ surgery pitchers is very bad.

This is counter-intuitive – and I’m just spitballing – but I wonder if being a RP would somehow sit better it Matzek’s fragile brain? You wouldn’t think so on the surface – but you never know. I do know that SP hasn’t worked well.
