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.

My god, I had this chalked up as a loss, as soon as the Mets scored that 'excuse me' run in the 5th. Grit!!! Guts!!! This team doesn't know the meaning of the word quit, or the phrase "you haven't scored a run in 26 innings!"

This was a big win. Still a shitty series, but this win makes it way more tolerable. And hopefully provides some 'Mo' for the Reds series.

With Cookie-Ubaldo (although we never win when Ubaldo starts), and Marq-Dog going in this series, I like to think there is a good chance we'll win the series, if not sweep it.

The bats need to wake the fuck up. O'Dowd standing pat has me more concerned from an offensive standpoint than the commonly held belief that we need more bullpen help. We probably need both to make a serious push, but bringing in an Adam Dunn (has he already been snagged?) would seem like a good move.

Stewbag, G-Dog, I-Dog, Barmey (soon) all hitting below .250. That's lame.

I almost forgot, I'm hanging my hat for the season on DLR. There, I said it.

And O'Dowd would like to lift us up but we're a very heavy load.

The fact that I can't pinpoint what song that lyric is from is killing me.

O'Dowd prolly thinks getting Bettenfart was our blockbuster move. Pretty lame, though he has been dishin em for us so far.

... I like the Adam Dunn suggestion.

ST, how is that all-Rapids blog coming along?

TroutDog said...

I hang my head in gbv shame. Maybe it was because I was cranking that Women record last night when I read the line....

Yeah, where is The Colorado Hwy 2 Bias?

TroutDog said...

Did you guys see we traded Hirsch a couple of days ago for a player to be named later. I hope this player to be named later is good in Rockies commercials.

DeathTruck said...

Yeah, I saw that last night.

now I don't see myself ever getting his autograph... because he can do that ya know.

I thought the Rockies faithful called him Bettendump.

Rapids blog is a good idea.
