You gotta be kidding me. Luckily for me I’ve been working long hours this weekend so have missed much of the Indians series. However I was in my car listening to the game when whoever it was hit a walk-off homer today. Yes, Zero gave up the big blow. But time after time the starters go only 4, 5 or 6 innings. I’m usually not a Woody Paige fan but his column was right on the money this morning. Morales… Read more »

The Chacin situation doesn’t look good. I always think a pitcher coming back from injury takes 3-4 starts to get his strength and rhythm back. Chacin has had that…..and then some.

Matzek did terribly in his start at CS. So, he doesn’t look like the answer quite yet.

Julian, quite yet? Hasn’t he had a lot of rope? I’m just asking, I don’t know.

Cuddy played 3B? Haven’t seen the last couple games — how has he handled it? Anyone try to bunt on him? And so we arrive back where I think we belonged all along: .500. Hey, it’s .500, it’s not a 100 loss pace or anything. Very good at home, just plain lousy on the road. What else is new. For a while I’ve been thinking the guy to trade is Cargo, not Tulo. And there was a big reason for… Read more »

Agree regarding Cargo – the only problem is he’s really devaluing himself. His target audience would be small (big market teams needing OFer willing to take on contract). He’d be a good AL candidate. Boston could use him (although they’re not a playoff looking team at the moment). I love the totally blocked 2B kid they have – Mookie Betts. I’d also take the kid the Yankees have in the BP at the moment – Dillen Betances. That dude is… Read more »

I never thought I’d say it – never – but trade him. He’s supposed to be a big time pro but he CANNOT find any plate discipline. And he’s a Brittle Pony. See what you can get.

The problem with Cargo is the Rockies keep him in such important batting slots. Move him out of 3 or 4 hole. Either in the 2nd, 5th or 6th slot he could reestablish himself.

I agree, this should be done immediately, it’s criminal watching crucial at-bats go up in big swings that miss by a mile, or GIDPs.

I have one simple question, which has been stuck in my mind longer than I can recall:

How bad will this team have to get before Dan O’Dowd is fired for his demonstrated incompetence?

Corollary question:

Can anyone name a team whose ownership is so obtuse and resistant to building a winner? (Maybe the Cubs…)

I like your question; unfortunately, it’s shouting into the wind. I actually wrote an email to the Rockies today, first time ever, asking if they will ever be bold enough to make moves showing they actually want to save a decent start before this sinking ship is all the way under. Shouting (pissing?) into the wind.
