Seattle in Town for Interleague

The Rockies will welcome the Seattle Mariners to town tonight in the first of a three-game series to begin their Interleague play.

This three-game series represents the first time the Rockies and Mariners have played an Interleague series since 6/12-14/09, a series the Rockies swept at Coors Field. The Rockies have won six of the last seven games the two teams have played, since 6/30/02 at SEA. Colorado is 12-13 all-time against the Mariners, including 7-4 at Coors Field.  The Rockies did play the Mariners in a three game series at the very end of Spring Training and ended up going 1 – 2.

Here are some cool Ichiro Stats from RWO’s Marc Stout:


THE ICHI-ROLL…ORDER SOME THIS WEEKEND

IT’S A CLASSIC:

– ICHIRO’S career BA of .3246 is 2nd among active players;

(PUJOLS is 1st at .3257…HELTON is 3rd at .3214)
-won the ROY and MVP in 2001
-2007 all-star game MVP

10 time all star
10 gold gloves
3 silver slugger awards

-holds the record for most hits in a single season, 262, in 2004
-most hits in Mariner’s history
IT’S CONSISTENTLY GOOD:
-has played in every game THIS year and 98.18% of games in career
(on DL 1x w/bleeding ulcer in 2009)

-.324 BA home/.325 BA away
-.370 on base % home/.367 on base % away

-309 RBI’s home/310 RBI’s away

-has at least 14 HR’s and no more than 19 HR’s in each month of the baseball season

SPICE IT UP WITH SOME WASABI:

-36 of 96 career HR’s are LEAD OFF HR’s…6th most all-time

-nearly a 1/4 of his career hits, 579, are INFIELD hits

-career SB% is 82%…has stolen 3B 99 times in his career

-has more INTENTIONAL WALKS, 169, than REGGIE JACKSON, 164

I tried to join the chat but this old guy didn’t do it right so I’ll just ask my question here. Didn’t the Rockies try to sign Millwood on the cheap?

And even my wife knows you don’t make the first or third out at third base.

And throw that fan out.

Yeah,but he did that in St too and then regressed in real games.If he could just stay healthy maybe we could get an idea what we paid for with U.

We have several other starters that were much much worse while not showing any promise – give Pomeranz a real chance at the MLB – it is not like the Rockies are planning on being in contention in 2012 anyway.

Pitching wasn’t out downfall tonight, hitting was. And of course the little mistakes. The error, Scuturo being thrown out at 3rd.

Good teams find a way to win; bad teams find a way to lose.

I guess that means we are a bad team. Son-in-law asked me what’s wrong. I told him when we pitch well, we don’t hit. When we hit we don’t pitch. And the fielding has stunk ever since the 2nd game of the season. Am I imagining things or are our catchers making more than their share of errors this season?

Millwood wasn’t the only old guy to pitch well tonight. Andy Pettite threw 8 shutout innings against the Reds.

Here is my problem with DanO and the Rockies, and before you say this is just hindsight, I wrote these things on this blog at the time. First I would have made sure that Mark Ellis resigned as a free agent with the Rockies. You could argue that Scutaro should be the better player, however I think the first part of the season shows that Ellis has been the better baseball value so far. Second, the Rockies had the perfect… Read more »
