Show Me Some More of that Football Score

Giants vs Rockies Game 2…Justice

At this point Timmy doesn’t know it but today would be the shortest start of his career. :)

I was more than ready for some serious batting practice today. I was shutout on opening day and that puts me behind of my one ball a game average. Just when batting practice was starting to get roll’n, mother nature let loose and put an abrupt halt to all fun.

The rain didn’t last long, but it lasted long enough that the tarp was brought out. Zip for catching baseballs this regular season so far, now I’m behind and playing catch-up and that’s no fun.

Here’s a few pre-game pictures. Props to Amy for helping me get Cuddy’s autograph on my ticket today. I was damn close to getting Helton but as I”ve mentioned before I’m an anti-magnet when it comes to Helton for some reason.

I swear I’ve gotten Helton’s autograph only 4 times in 6 years. That might seem like a lot but I go to a lot of games.

Gutherie’s first Coors Field start. Think he was a bit nervous?

Cargo drove had two triples and drove in four runs. Nice to see Cargo finally get some hits.

Check out Dan in this picture, he’s all excited and Robert’s all mellow.

Rockies set a record tonight for most runs and hits without a home run.

Check out the Todd Helton broken bat series.

Partial bat flying.

So long Timmy.

This game was exactly what I needed after that lesson by Barry Zito on Monday.

Rockies even up the series with a football score of 17-8.

 I’m “D” The Ranter and the Rockies have my full attention. Show me some more of that!

 Go Rockies…”D”

 

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.
