Nice to See You Again to Start the Postseason!


Crested Butte Trout Dog here.....Remember my pre-season post? Doubt it. I think I said something along the lines of the Rocks have a chance to win the West if the starting rotation is decent, the hitting lives up to potential, and they survive a brutal early season schedule. Well, the starting rotation was more consistent than I could have dreamed, the offense generally fell short of expectations, but was oddly very clutch at times, and the Rocks took a big nose dive early in the season. Then Hurdle got fired and things improved, a lot.

Well, the Rocks didn't win the West (in accordance with my prediction above because none of those things happened), but they are back in the playoffs, bitch. No one at the start of the year was predicting a chance at post season play. Let's try to keep that in mind as the NLDS begins in 13 hours. Really hard to say how we'll fare against the defending champs, but we're here. Sure, I now have lofty expectations, but looking back at how I was assessing the upcoming season on that sunny slopeside afternoon, this is all gravy...

why is that snow brown?

Got to give a presentation in 10 minutes, and then scurry home at 12:00 to catch the first pitch.

I hope you wear a purple robe for this presentation.

Rockies pitching shitting the bed in the 5th and 6th....bummer.

The Phillies lefties seem to be stupifying the Rockies' bats.

We had a chance to get to Lee early, but didn't come up with the big hit and he settled in after that. Ubaldo was dealing, but really seemed to get rattled when Wirth lead off the 5th with a walk. Lame.

My gravy tastes like dogshit.

Pretty lame showing, for sure. C'mon Cookie!
