RMH and Jared have asked for volunteer pre/postgames, so I’ll say a little something. I’m not even sure it will show up on the site, but the directions were to go to Sound Off.
So. A VERY sweet beatdown of the Giants last night! Once in awhile, the hits just keep falling, and ain’t it some good fun. It’s a little baffling how Rusin lost his focus and gave back several runs, but in the end, you can’t really blow a 14-run(?) lead. Let’s see if the pitching staff can hold together tonight. The hitters are doing just fine this season overall, and it’s my impression that the Rockies are not as terrible as we feared. (This incisive analysis is for my pals who dig the stats.)
(And a random question: I think I’ve asked it before: are baseball players getting hurt more often/more seriously than a decade or so ago? I don’t recall hearing so many go down back then. There were a few major injuries noted today, for the Angels and the Reds. Maybe our Rockies will escape.)
PS/BTW. This is roxnsox writing. Not conversant enough with the website to know how to post a bio, or even whether/how these show up:)
