LOB/RISP Hell, the 1st base ump is blind, and Barmes sucks on a higher plane than ever thought imaginable.


Despite Tulo's double-dong heroics, this was the kind of game where a loss was truly deserved, and came to fruition.
Barmes choked 3 straight at bats with someone on 3rd with less than 2 outs tonight. Unacceptable Clint, could have used those runs...also struck out to end the game.
Stewart with some sketchy play at 3rd doomed poor Ubaldo's 8th inning, and began the unravelling, and probably cost the Rox the game. Dude, those are bunts, you are a 3rd baseman....
Luck and success runs out at some point. The Rox had reached the end of their good fortune. Angels fans seemed to be enjoying it. The Rally Monkey is stupid.

That game looked a bit too much like the old Rockies. Put it behind you, guys. Barmey might need a day off or something. Seems like every at bat he's down 0-2. Can't win 'em all, but that game was super winable. The Rally Monkey sucks.....

And yes, Stewbag really screwed up the 8th. One of baseball's quirks that somehow there were no errors tallied. I counted two myself. What, you can't assume someone double-clutching on a throw to first, or a thirdbaseman actually standing on third on a force? I don't get it.

Pretty lame that Ubaldo had to take a loss for a pretty well pitched game..

Might have to give Cargo a day off as well, even though he blatantly had a double. I'd rather have Spilly or Smith in the lineup (they're hitting about 100 points better than he is).

TroutDog said...

I agree. I do see some potential, but this team is obviously built to win now.

TroutDog said...

But in defense of Cargo, that was a double, possibly a triple, he hit down the line. Could've been the difference in the game.

hence, the 1st base ump is blind as a fucking bat.
many things conspiring against the rox last night. many things.

Thankfully didn't see much of the game tonight. Maybe a day off and a trip north will help. Too bad that didn't win last night, which would've made this loss seem more palatable. WTF Marq-Dog? I guess he had one of his few bad games of the year.
