Yep, One Run Should Be Enough....


....but, it was nice the Rocks add a couple more and make it a stress-free night for the bullpen (certainly not used to that). Such a huge outing by Super Ublado to counter a pretty dominating performance by Haren. After yesterday's mystery slugfest loss, this was the type of game that I would completely expect the Rocks to lose last year, especially playing in AZ, which has been a house of horrors for them since the '07 playoffs. Another homer by Tulo, some key hits by Barmey, Stewbag, and Todd, and some great pitching by Super Ubaldo, Manny, and H-Street make for some enjoyable baseball to watch. Doesn't hurt to see the shutout against the hated D-Bags lineup.

It's only one win, but it's nice to get it under your belt quickly after yesterday's disappointing opening day loss.

Post Game Report: After seeing the Cowboy on the FSN post-game set and being subjected to his tight-fitting middle section attire in HD (the gut hasn't regressed since last season's Tucson's photos), FSN would be wise to feature as much Rizzo as possible.....

Should be interesting to see how Frank Dog does tomorrow in his start. If anyone needs an mlb audio password to have radio access via the net, I now have one and I think multiple log-ins are allowed.

Welcome back baseball....

Now that was some mighty fine pitching.

The Cowboy is even more frightful based on the weird golf shirt he chose to wear. How did that atrosity pass wardrobe?

Nice solid first win.

There has to be some MTV show out there that would 'pimp' his outfit. I think all we ask is to baggy it up (so yes, I noticed it as well).

Super Ubaldo looked gosh-darn fantastic tonight, I just hope it doesnt't put any added pressure on (the '09) Frank Dog.

I'd have to say that I enjoyed the last two innings (on the pitching front) the most. Corpas looked confortable and so did Street; I didn't have to look at Fuentes's scared mug with the bases juiced... which is 'good' (that's right I didn't say nice; no one's clever for quoting that Caddyshack line.)

Come on super Frank-Dog!

You know I'm all about faith day. I like to wear my nicest Slayer tshirt each year to it.

Word on the Corpas-Street outing. It's only one outing, but I could get used to that. I think Ubaldo already had that lineup pretty demoralized. Hopefully Frank Dog '09 can continute that trend. Is it too early to head to Swanky's?

Rockies 2-1? a game above 500.

we beter win the pennant again.

TroutDog said...

I had the same thought. Were we ever over .500 in '08?
