Spoiling and Rolling On

Another Rockies player took NL Player of the Week honors for the most recent week, this time Nolan Arenado.  After the Giants played like the Rockies circa June/July/half Aug last night, they look to continue their march toward their mortality at AT & T Park tonight.  This time Madison Bumgarner (14-9, 3.17) will answer the call to rescue the Dwarfs.  Jorge De La Rosa (13-8, 4.21) has a plan of his own – get his 14th win of the season to match Bumgarner’s win total.  If there is a a highlight of the Rockies’ season, they are 5-2 at AT & T park this year throwing a bunch of monkeys off their backs.  They even won a one-run game last night which is a rarity versus the Dwarfs.

As of late, Colorado have played a major spoiler role in the post season races which is a testimony to their character.  With seven wins in the last ten games, they have been major speed bumps for Cincinnati (3 of 4), Kansas City (1-1 split), Miami (2 of 3), and San Francisco (1 game).
