Who Would've Thunk It?

In early June, I sure the hell wouldn't have thought it possible. Pretty freakin' amazing what has happened this season to have a magic number of 1 with four games to go. It would take some major bed-shitting down the stretch at this point to blow it, as the Rocks take a major step in the last couple days to make the playoffs (no jinx, no jinx). DT and I will be in the house tomorrow when the Rocks hopefully punch that post season ticket. Oh, and nice 'hawk, bro.

Sometimes things work out. Ain't that great?

Thank god for some I-Dog heroics. Buck up, there Street. A poor inning sent this shit longer than it should have been. Whoo Hoo. Rox overcome the Kendall fluke. Respect to I-Dog. DeathTruck still loose in Coors? TD and me fleeing in extra innings, didn't see the end. Shamed. Some cute mousey Baltimore chick left too and missed a great end, whoever you are, I'm sorry for that. It's work related, y'all.
Yipee Chris I. I've never been this baffled. Gaffled up from a false accusation. Maybe you got worth I-Dog.

Barmes Is With Leather

Crucial, crucial W for the Rocks today thanks to a very nifty game-saving catch and double play by a certain 2nd Baseman who hasn't hit in months. Face Pujols. It really shouldn't have been this close if the bottom part of the lineup would have been able to score a runner on 3rd with less than 2 outs. By my count, they failed to convert those into runs in four innings. Apparently, no one (Stew Bag especially) likes insurance. All's well that ends well, but those squandered chances would have left a terrible taste if Ludwig's hit falls and the Rocks end up losing.

Of course the Braves win again, so the stress continues with one week left in the season. Already looking forward the final Guys Night Out on Tuesday that opens a must-win series with the Brewers.

Oh yeah, DLR gets win #16, but it was not a brilliant performance.

Should've Worn My Rockies Gloves.

Whoa. Cold night out at Coors Field this evening. Wet, chilly, and rather long. Some bad bullpen work that just about undid a big lead wasn't too fun to have to endure. It was a wild game....and one that thankfully ended with a W.
I'm hearing about "magic numbers" and shit.

Giambi Likes Breathing Room Too You Know

Two crucial wins in the desert to complete an otherwise forgettable road trip. The Thong goes yard twice in these victories, which provided some insurance in each of the two games and ultimately in the standings. Looking like a pretty brilliant acquisition at this point to bring in the menacing left-hander for the stretch run. With the Giants, Marlins, and Braves all losing today, the Rocks have to feel much better than they did last Wed night taking the field in SF with a DLR-Cain matchup and only a 2 1/2 game lead in the Wild Card race.

12 games to go: 9 at home and 3 on the road. With a 4 1/2 game lead, I like how the math is working out. Still, considering the last 3 games are played in LA (where the Rocks traditionally lose), the team really needs to continue the dominance at Coors and over the NL Central with the Cards and the Brew Crew comprising 2/3 of the home stand.

Brad Hawpe post-All Star Game. Send his ass to Tulsa.

...because he flat sucks.
Rox pitching falling back to Earth like David Bowie in a sci-fi themed motion picture....
This team really doesn't look like a playoff caliber group.

Amazing that they find themselves in the position that they are in the Wild Card. Could change soon....Giants, Marlins, and the Braves are close and playing much better ball.

That's right my friend

War DLR... yes war dlr... there I said it; that shite was much needed.

some clutchnes out of Barmey and Stewbag as well? whammy? hang your hat on that Cowboy.

A taste Of the Rose

Death Truck my were a bit premature in your celebration, as I double up your post in a hurry. Jesus....what a horrid fucking bottom of the 9th.
Hip Hip Jorge, as they say....
Thank god for some Jorge.
Nice to see some Tulo and Stew-Bag Dongs too.
Hawpe. Fake All-Star.
Let's revisit the Big Issue: 9th inning bullpen bed-shitting.
Morales needs to dial it down a notch. Or hopefully never be in a position to pitch. Tulo ERRORS???? Bettencourt making me sweat.....I miss Street.
F U C K I N G crucial win. I could barely watch the end.

or don't, you goddam chokers.
rox look lost and pretty much like shit. another total beat down on the road in the NL West.
not good.

Raise Your Hand If You Really Need To Start Hitting

Not to name names, but some of the veteran 'stars' on this team need to start stepping up and contributing offensively. It's no secret the Rocks have struggled lately to score and what offense they have put up lately is largely due to the emerging youngsters (and an aging catcher). If the Rockies are going to make the playoffs, the vets on this team need to contribute heavily down the stretch.

And by the way tonight's game is going, it looks like it's up to Ublado or DLR (and maybe an offensive outburst?!?) to get us at least one win in SF. If that doesn't happen, it's extra high stress from here on out.....

One of the best games I've seen recently. Baseball do the Rockies. Nice purple jersey Yorvit?!?!?!?

Loving the chance to re-post this 7 Seconds, 7" doctored upload gem. 7 in a row. Again.
In 2009, for real.
Best 10 game homestand in Rockies' history.
The NL West is happening. Respect is due.

Mr. Late Night says make it six in a row....

Probably would have also accepted a post title with some sort of play on "Hammel Time". A great outing that doesn't produce a W, due to a couple damaging doubles in the 8th.
Seth Smith continues to demonstrate his clutchness with a 2-out, bottom of the 9th, bases-loaded single. Hard to fathom the run the guy is having at the plate lately. Brandon Phillips just about able to make a great play on Smith's hit...but when things are going your way, you know? Smith is hitting .471 in September, with a boatload of RBI's already.
Purple broom time tomorrow. Everyone's favorite - Kip Wells on the mound tomorrow afternoon for the Reds.
4 up on the Gigantes in the WC.
Are the Dodgers and the NL West crown back in this team's sights? Did I just jinx them? Hope not.

Hell Yeah, I Like Five In A Row

Yet another entertaining Guys Night Out evening at Coors, as the Rocks quietly take their fifth in a row and go 7-1 on the current homestand. Not a bad record at all, but with the pressure being applied by the Giants, gotta keep the pedal to the metal and make this at least 8-2 before going on the road. STJr seemed to enjoy Sec 111 tonight and what wasn't to love? Great weather, a well-pitched game where the home team wins, Marq-Dog gets win #15, EYJr is the offensive hero, and some annoying Cubs fan lecturing everyone on what it means to be a real fan...I guess you can't get it all.

The Golden Thong Delivers!!


BSB is back open for business. Last night's win was the perfect tonic for righting a wayward ship on a 5-game losing streak. Car-Gone's bomb makes it pretty clear his hand is healed (enough at least). Breathing wildfire smoke aside, it was a great GNO. Even the Golden Thong got a four-pitch walk to "drive" in a run with his first pinch hit with the Rocks. The bats need to stay hot and Ubaldo needs to bring his A game tonight. Let's build some momentum in this oh so crucial stretch of home games!!
