50 - 50 Chance

We used to be number 10,
now we're permanent one,
In the battle lost my finger,
mic became my arm,
Pistol nozzle hits your nasal,
blood becomes lukewarm...

It’s July 25 and do you know where your Colorado Rockies are? 100 games in and they stand at the same place they did on April 2. A stout .500 record, 50-50. Glass half full or half empty?

Look at the record with 62 games remaining. Take a long hard look, because come Friday, Broncomania returns and the Rox go back to the agate print.

Empty: To win the division, one would think 90-93 wins will be needed. Can the Rox go 42-20 over the last stretch of the season? Looking at the inconsistencies at the plate, on the hill, and how the two never seem to mesh, a .675 clip seems unlikely. The Rox can never seem to match up well versus Chris Young, Brad Penney, and the other star NL West pitchers. With the deadline approaching, the Brothers Bozo and Dan O’Dud will make no signal to the team that they are in it to win, further discouraging the squad.

Full: With a big chunk of games remaining versus division foes, the Rox have a chance. But they need to win series, especially versus the distracted Giants. No long road trips are on the schedule, and other NL West teams are older and could break down. The Wildcard is also right there, as the Phillies can never seem to put it together, the Braves are nothing special, and the Cubs/Brewers are, well, the Cubs and Brewers.

As much as I'd like them to be a playoff team, they just aren't there yet. They are wildly inconsistent, and are likely to be that way until they can get a bonafide #1 starter. Francis is a #2, and Cook really should be a #3 guy given that he usually puts the ball in play.

I personally believe Franklin Morales is that player, but we have a couple years before he's ready.

Helton's done, I love the guy, he's brought us many good years of baseball, but at this point in his career, he's a contact hitter with a great eye. They can't continue hitting him in the power spot at 4 and hope he comes through, it's not his game. They need to do what they can to get his salary off the books, move Atkins to first and get Stewart up in the bigs.

Fuentes also needs to be moved, he's been a very good closer, but lefties have started to figure him out a bit this year. Move him while he still has value.

you know my feeling on Fuentes, so I agree with above on get his a$$ out of here. He'd be a good set up man with a team with a stud starter (read: Yankees)

I thought they'd make a move for Buehrle, but who was I kidding. Maybe Bret Saberhagan is available again
