Yes. He's not a big hitter, but maybe Coors Field will be kind to him. Will we keep Rosario?

Wow, the Rockies had a great opening series against Arizona. I bet they are glad they didn't cut Blackmon.

I went to Wednesday's game - Todd Helton's final game at Coors Field. It was bitter sweet. I loved that hit a dinger his first at bat but... I realized that would be the last time I see the Toddfather hit a home run. *Sigh... The Rockies organization (and the Red Sux for that matter) showed real class and it was a great game to watch (even if they did get a spanking of a loss).

I don't know if Walt will be gone after this season quite yet. I think he needs to keep the team in their spiraling fashion in order for them to move on.

On a different note, I'm going to see the Sky Sox play next Thursday. Woo-hoo!

I HATE to admit it, but I think this season is pretty much over. I have a feeling we will have a different skipper next year, I like Walt, but the Weiss Experiment didn't work. I'm thinking they will move Dante up & hire Ellis Burk as hitting coach, I really think that that is why he is moving back to Denver! I also think that Todd will stay one more year & kind of play like Giambi did last year, I'm sure the Rockies want to get him a World Series ring!

Boggs from the Cardinals? Really? THAT'S the pitcher they acquired? Come on! The dude has something like 11.5 ERA this season. I hope the Cardinals gave him to us with cash because he's not going to do a damn thing in the bullpen.
One thing to note...they sent Garland down to Triple A. I don't know why but I'm holding out hope for him.

Hmm... they should look at getting Matt Garza from the Cubs. While I think there are other (better) options, I think that Garza is probably one they COULD get to put into the starting rotation. Then move Nicasio to long relief and send Outman or Corpas to triple A.

As far as who they could trade to the Cubs, I think the Cubs are looking to build their farm teams so I think they could do well with the likes of Charles Blackmon or Tyler Colvin.

That would be my best case, most attainable options. But... you know... I'm not in charge emoticon

I made the mistake of mentioning on FB that MAYBE the Rockies should cut their losses with players who spend every season on the DL & spend some of that money on relief pitchers....my son figured out who I was talking about & his head spun around, he was so mad @ me, lol!

Cuddyer! I totally voted him for an all-star spot. I did a little reading up on him and apparently we picked him up a few years ago in free agency. Wow - gotta love the guys that just work hard day in and day out and it pays off.
The bull pen is hit and miss! I think Brothers being forced into the closer role has really put some sort of kink into the rotation. But Chacin went 8 innings last week for goodness sake! It's not like last year when they were constantly going to the bull pen by the 4-5th inning. We are getting some good games out of our starters (albeit not always!) and the bull pen just isn't showing up.

Not exactly a Rockies update or score... but what's up with all this brawling going on in MLB? The Dodgers have already had at least 2 bench clearing brawls this season. Even coaches got involved in it the other day (Dodgers and D-Backs).
I don't want this to be turning into hockey for crying out loud!

I agree and it's not easy to put these people up on pedestals but as adults we should know better; but even we make that mistake sometimes. It's our kids that worry me the most and a lot of parents barely teach them right from wrong these days let alone something like this. Many of these athletes forget that they are role models for our kids and should act accordingly and as paying supporters of these people we should be more dutiful in running them out of the profession if they can't handle the job. As for Teabow I pray that he always keeps the morals that he emanates because if he fell there would be many people just stunned, including myself.

I agree that it's good he's taking responsibility and has apologized for it (unlike Lance Armstrong). The whole "hero worship" society is the problem and when a hero falls... we are struck with a sense of disappointment. I admit, I'm one of those that love Todd Helton (I regularly call him "The Toddfather") and had a bit of a smug attitude of "well MY favorite sports icon is perfect" when talking to people that love Cabreara, Ray Lewis, Barry Bonds, Lance Armstrong, Tiger Woods (dang, this is a long list!), etc etc. So I was knocked down a peg... at least in my own mind.
However, people make mistakes and... Helton is human after all. And, at least he isn't accused of abusing steroids or killing people (Ray Lewis) so his mistake is something we could all easily make.
*Sigh...

Yea, I know what your saying about holding athletes & people in the public eye to a higher standard that we do ourselves. I had the utmost respect for Lance Armstrong for being one of the best athletes in the world; ha, not to mention Tiger. So as long as Todd takes responsibility for his action and creates a positive out of a negative it'll be all good.

Yep, my son called me this afternoon to let me know. Must say, the mug shot is amusing. We ALL make mistakes! It just reminds us that we shouldn't be holding athlets & people in the public eye to a higher standard that we do ourselves, they are human. He's not the 1st & won't be the last. But, my feelings for him haven't changed...

This team has been pretty quiet this year, I'm assuming because the Rockie's are having such a bad season! Also, Colorado has had a diffecult summer. I hope everyone on the team & thier loved ones are doing okay!

It was awsome to get another win!
Yea, the hair thing & the pants that are a bit TOO tight are a little odd to me...but, whatever, the important thing is that he plays well...

One thing we need is dependable Starters who can go further than 4 innings into a game and Relievers who can hold off the other team if they're given some decent rest. I know what it feels like to watch the Rockies implode night after night on TV, it's got to be really hard on the players to get the team into a position to control their own destiny nearly every game, and then watch as their hard won lead goes up in smoke before their eyes...and Jim Tracy looks like he doesn't even want to be out there watching the game...it's tough to enjoy a lead when you know it could vanish at any time...and probably will...

Sorry for the negativity, but, gee whiz...you know?

1st R 2 D 0
2nd R 3 D 0
5th R 4 D 1
6th R 4 D 2
7th R 4 D 3
8th R 7 D 7 (We Get Tacos) ?
9th R 7 D 9 (FINAL)

I'd rather have a win than tacos!

Friederich really is just want the Rockies need! Heartbreaker that Tulo got hurt, too! I hope that some ice helped it & the shin bone is okay!
I just keep reminding myself, May just isn't the Rockie's month! Seems like it has always been that way!

Awwwww....last night's loss to the Giants was a heartbreaker! Friederich performed so well, it was so disappointing that we couldn't give him the run support to win, especially after leaving so many runners on base throughout the game...

Yea, all it takes is one relief pitcher to loose a game! Reynolds wasn't very good last night, before that it was Brothers! Sheesh!

My gosh, we've got to do something to slow down the opponents bats! Our offense can beat anyone if our rotation would just give them a chance. Last night's game was so discouraging from a defensive standpoint.

My son has been working in left field a lot this year. The other day, we went over & CarGo was sitting in my son's chair. CarGo looked @ him & said, "we're trading jobs today" my son just looked at him & said, "okay, give me your glove!" lol!

I'm with you Phoxym, I seem to be cringing through the first 7 innings nearly every game when our defense takes the field...and Moscoso's on the mound tonight...C'mon Rocks! I can't stand the braves!

I wish our rotation could get a grip on things... I am super impressed with our offense... maybe we can start to meet in the middle..
