-Tell me this players middle name.

-What was his nickname?

-Name his claim to fame. 

 

Not a whole lot of action on this one, can’t says I blame you with the playoffs and all going on.

 The Baseball Card Trivia was just a gimmick to get you to visit my blog. When you blog about a team that isn’t in the playoffs you have to resort to measures like that. I figured if people liked it, I would keep doing it. If it flopped it flopped. Nothing gained, nothing lost.

It is what it is, don’t hate me…D

                                      The answer is:                    CLIFF FANNIN

 Clifford Bryson Fannin, nickname Bull or Cliff, pitched a shutout in his first Major League start in 1946.

                                                  Thanks for playing or not…D

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.

Jorge struck out seven allowing only three hits in seven innings. He also singled in the fourth and drove in a run. Matt and Son.jpg

 

 

 

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?

                                                       

                                                          Go Rockies…D
