Swept Away

Miserable few days in the Ravine. A first game they should have won, and a couple more where they look like a downright shitty team.
Kind of going wrong all over the place.
Pitching looks horrendous pretty much down the line...this afternoon's batch were able to mark one scoreless inning on the card today. Whoo boy that Belisle is a keeper, huh?
At the plate, the copious strikeouts and runners LOB continue. Couple meaningless homers after the game was already lost is pretty classic Rockies too. Really clutch there I-dog. At least you got your second hit of the year!
The Rockies sure don't mind giving a fan a variety of losses. Heartwrenching bullpen meltdowns to lose a game they could have won. Or just flat-out getting their asses kicked and having a game out of reach by the 5th inning.
...a little afraid to head out to Coors next weekend when the Dodgers are in town. Things are starting to get ugly.

A depressing stretch of the three games. Not only do the Rocks look horrible, but the Dodgers look formidable. I can't help but wonder how that series plays out if the bullpen preserves the game on Fri. I'm guessing we win the series if that happens, but Cook and Ubaldo looked bad at a very bad time.

The hitting.....ughhh. Not only strikeouts with RISP, but lots of unproductive shallow pop outs.

Need to have a much better showing in AZ, obvi. Can Marquis be expected to come up big again tomorrow night? Let's hope so.

Belisle has got to be cut to bring up FrankDog. I don't know why we kept him over Morillo in the first place.

I'm trying to super glue my thong back together as I type.

Hopefully that's just the thing to get this team back on track....

The whole Morillo thing is a bit puzzling. He must have been having some serious control issues. Either that or he missed a few Sunday services in Tucson.

Were we planning on going to the Ubaldo t-shirt day?

Is that who it's for Fri? I'm going to a show that night, but surely can squeeze in the early portion of a Rocks game.
