Yawn, Another Loss On The Horizon?

Get ready for another low scoring game.  Get ready for a 0-for RISP hitting.  The game comes down to how many home runs we hit vs. how many runs Tyler Matzek (5-9, 4.32) and “The Herd” give up.  Rafael Montero (0-3, 5.23) has a real good chance to look like a Cy Young award pitcher tonight.  All he has to do is throw pitches way out of the zone and let the Rox hitters swing wildly at them in RISP situations.  Easy job, Rafael.

Yawn is right … absolutely nothing doing on offense. And remember, the guy who’s shutting us out is the Mets #6 or #7 starter at best next year …

14 runs scored in our last 10 road games (according to Spilly). I knew the road offense was anemic, but this is ridiculous.

What is going on here, Ag? This problem of clobbering the ball at home and doing nothing on the road has gone on year after year after year. I have a hard time believing that over the last 20 years the Rockies have somehow managed to consistently acquire players that aren’t good hitters but who get a huge upswing from playing at Coors. This has also trended through all GM’s, managers and hitting coaches since the franchise began. Can it… Read more »

In one of those dugout reporter moments, Jenny asked the question of Cuddyer, why do you guys (including Morneau) who come over here not seem to have a problem hitting on the road. His answer was something along the lines, well, we’ve not been told we can’t.

In other words, the culture of losing and blaming altitude in this organization is taught from the minor leagues on up. I’m looking at you Dan O’Dowd. This organization needs a revamp.

It’s all three “P” words. Psychological, physiological, and physics.

At least it was another strong start by Matzek. Matzek, Lyles, and Bergman are making a good impression. Another story that bears watching: Tyler Anderson left the Drillers’ playoff game after just three innings. The Drillers’ website said that it was for “precautionary” reasons, and the Tulsa World newspaper referenced an elbow injury. That could be really bad news from the Texas League pitcher of the year. Daniel Winkler was the best pitcher in Tulsa, and he’s out with a… Read more »

There’s no such thing as a “not serious” elbow injury.

Could make our current “injury prone”Anderson and his 12 million option a must do.After all that’s what we are paying JDLR and this guy looked that good when he was actually throwing the ball[albeit a limited sample].

One thing that’s clear to me (well….to anyone that’s paid attention) as we move towards 2015 is that the bullpen needs a major restructuring. Another generally nice thing that seems to be happening is that we have an abundance of decent (maybe not great, but serviceable) SP prospects on the Farm. I’m talking Gray, Butler, Anderson, Winkler, etc. I’ve made this plea several times before…..bring a couple of these guys to the Majors and start their careers from the Pen.… Read more »

I wonder whether next year’s bullpen will include a different set of former starters than who SDCarp is suggesting: Friedrich, Nicasio, Flande, and Morales.

LOL – thanks for the link.

The fallacy in that article (in my opinion) is that we’re not going to get a boatload of prospects for Tulo “if” he’s traded. I’m of the opinion we’ll be lucky to find someone to take his salary. Otherwise – it’s generally spot on.

January 2014 trade value of Tulo: 1 league average type ML position player (maybe our trade partner’s current SS or 2B) + 1 very good AA level prospect (a Top 50 type, but not an absolute can’t miss guy) + 1 low A ball “guy with a live arm” type July 2014 trade value of Tulo: 1 true “can’t miss” Top 10 type prospect + 1 very good AA level Top 50-type prospect + 1 # 3 or# 4 starter… Read more »

Regardless of what you think (or don’t think) – at this moment – I do agree with this statement:

“I’d roll the dice on him reestablishing value next spring and wait it out.”
