gracias a dios para jorge....

Well holy fucking shit. (apologies to any Catholics or other religious types) Pretty much took our best pitcher. best pitcher. best pitcher. Had to repeat to orient myself with the notion.
Anyways, pretty much took our best pitcher, Jorge De La Rosa, to keep Met bats at bay, rope a double himself, and prevent a goddam 4 game sweep at the hands of the Mets. A team that was/is in total dissaray. Poor start to the roadtrip. Thankfully the bleeding was halted.
Barmes continues his "how about I hit a home run every now and again, so no one freaks out about my tanking average?" routine. I like Barmes...but he needs to hit a lot more dongs to offset his shit-ass OBP and average these days.
Time to turn this roadie around.
One more Jorge start like this and I just may be so inclined to pick myself up a #29 jersey.
Looks like O'Dowd thinks this team is set as the trade deadline approaches. Not surprising, knowing the Rockies.
Hopefully he's right....most of the NL competition got better over the past week.

Maybe I Need To Go Back To The Springs?!?

I can't believe I'm clamoring for Roof Top to be put in at 2nd, but Barmey has been complete garbage at the plate lately. It was somewhat possible to overlook the lingering slump, considering he's been playing pretty sweet D, but even that was suspect tonight when he booted what should have been a double play. Throw in six LOB from Barmes alone (not to mention a collective lack of clutch hitting in this series so far) and you got a pretty shitty night.

Don't like the look of this roadie at all so far. It's reminiscent of the '08 / early '09 Rockies. And with Santana going tomorrow, things don't get any easier. At least Tracy got booted after a really horrible call at the plate. I hope that provides some inspiration.....

Taaaadd, Came On.

An odd title, I know. Perhaps even a little gross. But, having not been at the game today to tell yell Cmon Taaadd, this is the best I can do. With the bats anemic pretty much the whole game (and since the early going last night), Helton comes up clutch on a couple occassions, especially the late dong.

Still would have liked to see a sweep, but after the mess last night and the way this game was going, a series win against the always troubling D-Bags will have to do. Losing the series would have been downright painful. Thanks Taaaddd and congrats on double #500!!

Side note, having listened to the Voices of Summer today, a lot was made of the crazy knuckling action on Upton's line drive that Fowler botched last night, which turned out to be crucial. Maybe everyone was a little tough on FowlDog at Coors last night.)

Up next: Why has the bullpen been sucking lately?

Oooh, that feels good....

It's been too long since the Rocks played, or made sweet love to the win column. Cookie and Super Seth couldn't wait until the final out.......

"Sonic Tooth, I agree, you don't want to go into the All-Star Break with a losing streak. Also, I took your constructive criticism to heart and decided to pick up some clutch hits today. I hope you enjoyed them. Do you like walk-off wins? I do."

This ain't no way to head into the All-Star Break

I snapped this screenshot of The Cowboy taking a postgame nap and snoring like he was sawing logs - all the while drooling out of the corner of his mouth, with some chick behind him who was going nuts to get on TV. Pretty compelling television, FSN might want to institute some better quality control, or at least Huson should slap Tracy in the back of the head when he slips into a snooze.
What about the game? It sucked.
Hawpe is looking sort of un-All Star-ish lately. Maybe the excitement of being at the Mid-Summer Classic will re-energize him. He frankly looks tired, and has let the team down in the clutch.
I think it might be time to start easing up on the fucking "try to steal a bag every time someone with remote speed gets to 1st". It is in part due to some bad luck, but I have seen so many double plays with a runner in motion over the past couple weeks, pickles, and just flat getting caught stealing.
Hello? Bats? Get hot and opportune anytime now........4 runs over 2 games won't win many games. Sure didn't the past couple.

How Are You Liking Guys Night Out?

Fucking Awesome!!! Big shout-out to our own Sonic Tooth for not getting any guesses correct in the "Higher Lower" bottom-of-the-3rd jamboree. Going with "higher" on a starting number of 29 was definitely a gaffe, but a gaffe that was totally overshadowed by a slew of Nats' gaffes that pretty much lead to an undeserved, but welcome, rare Rocks win on Guys Night Out at Coors. I guess this is what you sign up for when you play the Nats.

Sloppy baseball and High Low performances tonight. I expect better things tomorrow out of this team and whatever lucky soul gets selected by Lauren and her adorable sidekick....
