Rox vs Braves Postponed

Those waiting for the match-up of the year so far, will need to wait one day more.  The Rockies were ready to host the Atlanta Braves, who they also happen to be tied with for the #1 team in the MLB, today as part of a three game series.  Instead, they will play their second double-header in a week, thanks to mother nature and her wilily ways!

So, we will have to wait until Tuesday to see if the Braves deserve their #1 on the MLB Power Ranking list, despite losing four of their last five games, including three to the Pirates.  Or, if the Rockies deserve their big jump to #4 on the same list after taking three consecutive series (4 of 5 since the beginning of the season) and getting 11 of 18 quality starts.

DOUBLE-HEADER INFO:

GAME 1: 1:10 PM

GAME 2: 6:40 PM

My favorite was in Pittsburgh in ’76 when I went to the concession stand all afternoon picking up batches of All Star ballots, telling the people I wanted to make sure Al Oliver was getting lots of votes. Instead, I punched out all Phillies and wrote in Jay Johnstone on one half of the 2000 ballots I filled out and deposited… Read more »

Looks like Chatwood is going to get called up to take Chacin’s spot. He was supposed to start for the Springs tonight and got scratched.

For second week in a row, I’m heading to Coors Field for second game all bundled up in Eskimo gear.
