Jorge finally has his day
Jorge De La Rosa.
I can’t remember how many times this season I’ve watched this kid blow a baseball game. Jorge had a serious bad start this season and his ERA by the All Star Break was 7.26.
I like Jorge. Hunter and I got his autograph early on this season and I mentioned back then how laid back and polite he was.
I was just checking out his stats. He is now 12-10 for the season and his ERA is 4.92. He’s bringing it on strong and doing exactly what every other Rockies player is.
Trying to get noticed. Only three games left.
Matt Holliday (Rockies please keep him), hit a single in the first inning to score Tulowitzki.
Matt this season has hit .321 with 25 home runs and 88 RBI. He has played 139 games, had 539 at bats and managed 173 hits.
Matt will only continue to get better as a player. There was a dramatic improvment in his outfielding this season.
He is physically healthy and lives a clean lifestyle.
Matt has a lot of good years left in him
Fact: In June 2006 Clint broke his collarbone carrying a large slab of meat given to him by Todd Helton upstairs to his apartment.
It was probably deer or elk meat.
Clint hit a solo homer in the seventh inning to give him eleven home runs for the season. That is a personal record for him topping his previous best of 10 in 2005. Contrats Clint..See you next season.
Rockies square up against the D-Backs in a couple of hours. On the mound for the Rockies is Jason Hirsh.
Have you seen the size of this guy?
He is 6’8 250, bats right, throws right.
He’s been a relief pitcher only three times this season. Here’s a quote from Jason.
“I’m going to have fun, at this point of the season, that’s pretty much my mind-set. Have fun and enjoy the rest of the year. This season has been trying, the most trying of my career. At this point, what have I got left to lose?”
He’s right, who knows..lets see how it goes..
No winner on the Baseball Card Trivia #2.
Did I make it too tough?
