I was left with no option but to try and use my backup desktop computer. It’s damn near as old as my daughter Mylee, and she’ll be eight soon..
I got that thing up and crawling, but it’s just to old.
So after some tweaking, fixing, and replacing, I’m up online again using my old broken laptop.
I’m trying to look at this with the glass being half full, so on a positive note let me say at least my piece of schit computer lasted until the end of the regular season.
Speaking of broke and finished, who do you think the Rockies are going to get rid of before next season?
Do you like the way I just slid that in there? I got skills.
He has another year still in Colorado but you know he’s got to be wondering what his market value is? I’m curious.
As a Rockies ticket purchaser, I only help pay the Rockies salaries, I don’t sign their paychecks, but I think they should find a way to keep Holliday here. I’d pay a buck more for a Rockpile ticket.
He likes it here, keep the man happy, and pay him what he’s worth. Even that might not be enough.
Next seasons pitching should be interesting. Brian Fuentes (super southpaw) is coming off his best season and is now a free agent.
Brian Fuentes = reliable closer
Yep, he is going to cost some the Rockies some green, but pitching has ALWAYS haunted this team and this guy does what you pay him to do, win games.
In my opinion he is only expendable if it involves some kind of deal that keeps Matt Holliday in Colorado.
Jeff Francis never found his groove, and then he went on the DL for his shoulder. He struggled when he came off the DL, but was seemingly back in stride toward the end of the season.
If we could guarantee a solid pitching season (we all wish), there is no telling what the Rockies could do in this Division.
Now let me take this full circle. In my opinion, Matt Holliday is only expendable if we bring in a BIG name pitcher. See,…it works both ways.
Yorvit vs Chris. Hurdle will probably split their action 50/50 until an injury or performance dictates which one will assume the position. Both these guys are excellent catchers and the Rockies are lucky they have them both to choose from.
Where will Garrett Atkins wind up next season? This one is a pickle.
Garrett starts the season on third base. Todd Helton gets hurt midway through the year, Garrett takes over first base and does a great job.
Ian Stewart takes over third and does a better job than Garrett did.
Ian is younger, more athletic and gets paid less than Garrett.
On Garrett’s side, one thing he has that Ian doesn’t is a proven track record. Only time will tell for Ian.
I have more plenty more questions as do you I’m sure. I also have five months to kill.
Tell me what you think the Rockies should do for next season.
Right now the Rockies are 5-4 on this road trip and 11-5 since the All Star break.
Six and four would be much better. Game four is in Florida and the Rockies need this win to break even in this set with the Marlins. Besides, I hate losing to the Marlins.
Valerio De Los Santos, I like this guy and wanted to see him succeed, but in the end he didn’t bring it when he needed to. In Saturdays game De Los Santos allowed three runs, walked five and gave up four hits in only four-innings. Clint Hurdle let him go after the game. Good Luck Valerio!
Welcome back Jeff Francis. Jeff has been on the DL for a while now with a shoulder injury.
Before Jeff was injured he was 3-7 with a 5.67 ERA in seventeen starts.
Jeff fits in nicely with the Rockies.
I hope his shoulder holds up and he can get back to last seasons level of performance.
Good Luck starting on Wednesday. Show’em what Canada is all aboot…eh!
Matt Holliday is flippin amazing. I can’t remember the last game in which he didn’t hit a homer. This is the second game against the Marlins this year that Matt has had hit two homers. Even with his valient effort last night, the Rockies couldn’t get the win over the Marlins.
They lost it 5-3.
The Rockies return home to Coors Field on Monday and begin the start of a ten game home stretch against the Nationals, Padres and D-Backs.
Right now the Rockies are twelve games back from .500 and this next home stretch could possibly, maybe slightly, without a doubt, take it to the bank, you bet your bippie, if all goes well, so they tell me, wheres the beef, straight up, ultimately make or break the Rockies.
Aaron Cook is the starting pitcher on Monday and that makes me feel good. He’s solid and hard to shake. Plus he has a cool nickname…Cookie
This year while pitching at Coors Field, Cook is 6-3 with a 3.43 ERA.
I’ll be at the Monday, Wednesday and Thursday (my birthday) games..See you there.
I have to be careful how I world things. I don’t want to seem negative…I want to tell the story, with feeling not agression. With that said…..
Everyone knows that Jeff has a stellar year last year.
He is also an all around great guy, but is really struggling this year.
If he were any pitcher other than himself, with what his ERA this season..he probably would be in Colorado Springs doing time with the Sky Sox. Get it together now Jeff, we believe in you…
Nuff said on that.
Matt Holiday is continuing show fans why he is All Star material. His two run homer in the fifth driving in Baker gave Colorado fans a little hope, but that would be all for the Rockies as they lose this one to the Royals 8-4.
Congratulations to Jeff Baker for being chosen NL Player of the week.
This guy is really hitting right now and is really trying hard to find a spot for himself on this ever changing Rockies lineup.
Welcome back Clint Barmes from AAA Colorado Springs…expect big things from Clint. This guy is a future All Star…Go Rockies…D
