Tag, Cuddy’s It

In a spark of what it was like to watch September baseball in ’07, where it seemed like there was a different “hero” each night, the Rockies have shown something many thought this club didn’t posses anymore: a pulse.

On Tuesday it was Dickerson who led the team with four RBI’s.  Wednesday was Morneau and his six RBI’s, five in the first inning alone.  Thursday was of course Rosario with his 4-5, 3 RBI night (not to mention his RWO).  Which leads us to friday, where Cuddy drew the long straw and proceeded to drive in seven RBI’s in two at-bats.  A grand-slam and a bases clearing double.

The Rox extended their winning streak to four, but more importantly they’ve outscored their opponents 48-15 over that stretch.

Another nice surprise in the game was Ynoa’s four hits, although one of them (a triple he tried to stretch into an inside-the-park HR) saw him get thrown out at home.

The Rox are now officially 4th in the NL West as they continue to battle it out for last place against the Diamondbacks.

I know its meaningless,but I like fourth better than last.Last September I said the kids were fighters and not quitters and I submit the same observation this year.Unfortunately the annual closeout road trip usually leaves a six month bad taste in the mouth.I believe the two twins[Cuddy/Morneau] have really set a great example.The team is much better[offensively]when Cuddy is in the lineup.Team looking like April at home.I think it’s fair to say a jinx may exist when a 24 year… Read more »

Yep, lovin’ them former Twins! Too bad they are getting old and brittle 🙁 I don’t think the Rockies can pay Cuddy market rate, for that reason, so we’ll see what he chooses (assuming they make him an offer). Is Justin signed for next year? Two years? That would be fine with me 🙂

Cuddyer is certainly playing like a guy who would get a two year 21 million dollar contract or so. Do the Rockies resign him at that rate? It’s about what we’re paying him now. If he wants to be here and he makes the team better, I say yes. Of course, you have the crowded outfield problem of CarGo, Dickerson, Blackman, Cuddy, and Stubbs at that point (with Barnes being the 6th). Cuddy can play some games at first against… Read more »

Know what else I love about Cuddy? Guy is not afraid to smile, like a certain SS I could name…

Maybe Cuddy will take a discount to stick around? I’d love to have him as a platoon righty. Morneau + Cuddy at 1B (with Cuddy also giving one of the outfielders a breather from time to time) would be nice. You know what else I like? AAA club in Albuquerque, and not just because I’m down there occasionally. What I really like is it expands the Rockies geographic market — we already kind of have New Mexico, but this should… Read more »

What’s the outlook for the Springs? I hope someone moves their club there.

Colorado Springs is now the Brewers AAA affiliation.

One benefit the Rockies did have in CS was the ability to very quickly bring someone up when needed. That will be a bit slower coming from Albuquerque unless the Rox own/lease a small plane that can whisk someone up quickly.

Speaking of Albuquerque, does the pitched ball have decent movement there or is it ‘”Breaking Bad”?

If only they can/willing to trade Tulo and/or Cargo for young pitching this team might have a future. I know they’re playing garbage time right now but some of these kids are fun and have potential.

Off Topic but I found this to be an interesting read about the Rockies, owners and management,
