7/5/09 Happy B-day to my brother Dean
We had a blast on Fridays Game 1 against the D-Backs. The Rockies made it look easy at Coors and sent the Snakes slithering back to their pit with a final score of 5-0.
Unfortunately I had to watch Saturday and Sunday’s game on TV and it was shockingly painful. Home games are not the place for the Rockord to be slipp’n up.
Maybe it’s all this wet weather of late.
Jim Tracy, talk to this team.
Why can’t we win at home this year? I just don’t get it.
Props to Ubaldo Jimenez today.
Rockies were up 3-0 and it looked like we had a possible no-hitter working until the sixth inning. With two out Jimenez walked the next two batters and when Mark Reynolds stepped up to the plate Ubaldo served him a perfect fastball that made it’s home in the left field pavilion.
All of a sudden it’s a tie game.
So much for Ubaldo’s no-hitter, missed it by that I——-I much.
IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME !
Congrats go out to the newest members of the 2009 All-Star Team Brad Hawpe and Jason Marquis.
Hawpe will be starting in place of injured Mets player Carlos Beltran.
Two fine additions and I’m sure will these fellas will not disappoint.
C’mon Brad, show those dudes how it’s done Rocky Mountain style.
How about MLB’s best pinch-hitter our very own Seth Smith?
This guy is f’kin amazing in the clutch. He’s money in the bank and someone I didn’t even factor into the Rockie equation at the beginning of the season. Seth is hitting close to .500 as a pinch-hitter.
We all know how a sucessful team works, you get three or four players who really step up their game and all of a sudden you’re a team that starts winning.
The way I figure the players listed below have really out performed what I thought capable of them. Their outstanding play this season is an unexpected bonus and a good part of why the Rockies are above .500.
Todd Helton, we all know he’s good but we didn’t know what to expect at the beginning of the season.
Tomorrow is a new day and a new team. I’m going to forget these last two games and focus on this next series against the Nationals. This weekend was just a temporary setback in our quest to win this division and ultimately win the World Series.
Don’t believe me?…Fine, but you can’t knock my enthusiasm…Go Rockies…D
