The Rockies have probably seen .500 for the last time before yesterday’s game. Jordan Lyles toes the rubber today and he has been simply disastrous since the day he reported to spring training. Tony Wolters continues to languish on the bench watching Nick Hundley finish out his contract.
I unfortunately will be at the game tonight with a friend. The weather is perfect, but I will suffer the consequences of Lyles pitching slow and getting into deep counts on just about every batter, even the pitcher. The only good news is that Jason Gurka pitched three innings last night which saved the bullpen for tonight and tomorrow.
