Rox vs. Royals (3/24)

Lineup 24Mar

 

2:10 pm MDT start time; no TV

Final 25-man roster to be made possibly by mid-week, after Wednesday’s game with the off day Thursday?

Kerosene starting; he better have a good game as Brothers and Kahnle are the only available quality relievers today.  All other pitchers are farmhands.

Boone Logan held back from MLB spring training games since his lone appearance last week to give Rox flexibility of starting season with Logan on the DL retroactive to last ST game on March 20th.  If so, he would be eligible to come off the DL on April 5th during the opening series vs. Arizona at the earliest.  I think the writing is on the wall that Kahnle will make the team and give Rox more time to think about how the bullpen will shake out.  It’s possible that both Bettis and Kahnle will make the squad if Logan starts on DL.  That is if they don’t choose Lyles over Morales and move Kerosene to the pen.

Wow, that is surprising. He has quite the name with the media when it comes to the team.

the fact that Tulo only has four hits and three of those are HR’s means he is still reaching for the fence every time…

Should never have made him a clean up hitter. Remember when he batted 2nd or 7th? He was a more complete hitter then, IMO.

Yeah let’s bat Tulo 7th. That makes sense.

2nd would work better than 4th. The point is, swinging for the fences has never suited Tulo. His power is natural and doesn’t need to be forced. When he forces it, he becomes POFO Tulo.

Strong outing by Frankie…

5.0ip, 3h, 1r, 0er, 1bb, 7k’s, 0hr, ERA: 2.21

The 0 ER’s is nice, the 1 BB is also very nice. It is the 7 K’s i like to see…Frankie is showing that maybe he is suited for the 5th spot…

Just saw this line on TV – pleasantly surprised … er, shocked? What if Frankie has finally pulled it together?!? Like I said recently, he’s keeping me on board (when I thought I quit him quite awhile back).

The Rockies definitely should keep Kahnle and not give him back to the Yankees.

Is Blackmon’s weak spring at bat going to cause him to start the year at CS?

Pacheco is hitting well. Does he win the job as the backup catcher?

Jaredean…..with exactly a week remaining before the season kicks off in Miami – it might be fun to have a dedicated “season prediction thread” where our pre-season predictions can be stored and shamelessly ridiculed as the season progresses.

Finally made it to Arizona and made it to this one. Impressions: Tulo: Gotta disagree about the assessments here. He’s in the groove, one of those hot streaks we’ve enjoyed over the last few years, squaring up everything. HR to left and a couple long drives to right/center hit right at guys. No need to worry about him being ready. Frankie: erratic at the start, settled in nicely. Not throwing as hard as he used to, about 91-92, but better… Read more »

The way that I read the article, my impression is that the reporter was simply toeing the company line and just publishing what upper management wanted conveyed. I really do not believe that WW has the power that is implied in the article. One of the reasons that WW was hired was because upper management can control him. The main reason that Fowler was traded to Houston was to punish him by putting him on a team with little to… Read more »

Obviously Kiz was right about Charlie Monfort’s drinking problem so I’ll assume he has inside info on Weiss vs Dex. Still, I’m not getting it. I guess the idea is that Fowler wasn’t bothered by losing. Guys react to losing in different ways. Iannetta got the same rap. I’m not sold on that theory. Was the Rockies 2009 team with Iannetta catching better than the 2010-13 editions? Tougher? More able to “fight” the Dodgers? What bothers me is this: Kiz… Read more »

RMH,

I may be wrong, and I apologize if I am, but from the sound of your recent comments it appears that you’ve taken a sip of the purple Kool-Aid being dished out at 20th & Blake.

Lotsa good comments. I’m pullin’ 4 Dickerson to start. The guy was rakin’ the past two seasons in CS and should get a good chance to show the same at Coors Field On a slightly different note, Rocky Mountain SABR has a great luncheon coming up 4/19, check this out: Larry Bowa the longtime shortstop, coach and manager of the Philadelphia Phillies will be speaking at our Rocky Mountain SABR- Luncheon/Chapter Meeting on April 19. Please join us in hosting… Read more »
