I made a bet I hope I don’t regret

Giants Jersey.jpgI made a bet about a week ago with a guy I work with. He’s a Giants fan. The bet was on whichever one of our teams wins more games from that point forward till the end of the season.  The loser would have to wear the winners jersey one full day at work.

Today is the start of a three game set with the Giants. As of pre-game today, I’m one game up…I’ll keep you posted.

Matt-Holliday Rookie Card.jpg

 

I see that Matt Holliday is in contention for the MLB Hank Aaron Award for offensive excellence.

He deserves it. He has always been among the elite in the NL as far as batting average, home runs and RBI are concerned.

So far this season Matt is 27-29 for bases stolen. Matt is also the first Rockies player to get more than twenty steals and twenty home runs in a season since this guy…

Larry Walker.

Larry did it in 1997. He had 49  home runs and 33 steals. That was good enough to win him the NL League MVP award.Ubaldo J9-7-08.jpg

 

 
On the mound today vs the Giants is Ubaldo Jimenez (11-12) with a 4.12 ERA.

Tim Lincecum (17-4) who has a 2.46 ERA will be pitching for theTim Lincecum.jpg Giants. Thats scary. The kid is straight up smokin now and only going to get better as he matures.

I have faith that the Rockies still have something to prove and are not quitters. Everyone at work knows how much I support the Rockies and I DON’T want to have to wear that Giants jersey.
