Hot Rocks

My composition leaves competition wishing
They could be in my postition cuz I did it wit no ass kissing
I'll be there like Michael Jackson and you don't stop
Until you get enuff and I'll be damn if my nose drop...

Is your favorite baseball team a team that in their last game:

-
Gets two men on with no outs in the top of the first, then promptly hits into a triple play?

-In the bottom of the first, lets the other team load the bases with no outs?

-Had their starting catcher ejected in the 2nd for arguing balls and strikes?

-Had their starter go only two innings?

And is your favorite baseball team a team that over the last few weeks:

-
Has been starting two rookies who were both in the minors this season, a mediocre starter who has bounced around the past few years, an “ace” (who on most teams would be a #3 guy and who looks like your paperboy), and as your fifth starter a collection of journeymen, callups, relievers, and hot dog vendors?

If you answered yes to the above, than your favorite team must be the Colorado Rockies. And if they’re your favorite team, they are only two games out of the NL Wildcard. Yes, the Colorado Rockies. The same one the usually equates September with fill-the-seats fireworks shows, scalpers at 20th and Blake unloading seats for a buck, and planning for their fishing trips. Those Colorado Rockies.

Not since the days of Dante’s flowing mullet has the CO region seen their local nine competing for a spot among baseball elite. After a strange 12-0 win over the Phillies, the Rox are right in the thick of the race. Patchwork, gritty starting pitching, Matt Holliday absolutely crushing the horsehide, and a bullpen that just gets it done has got the Rox to seven games above the breakeven line and bumped the Donks from the front pages. Somewhere, the 1995 “Wildcard Champion” banner is smiling.

The sad thing is, they are doing it in spite of their manager. Hurdle, again, has probably cost this team 6-7 losses based solely on his decisions and 'hunches'. It honestly amazes me that they play so hard for this buffoon. I understand he's a likeable guy in the clubhouse, but this needs to be about winning, not being a good guy. Winning takes good decision making. Hurdle doesn't do that consistently.

O'Dowd's done a wonderful job of putting talent on the field, here's hoping they can make it come to fruition this year.

I was waiting for you to chime in S'wood. Luv the description of buffoon.

As I got a boner about MAYBE making the playoffs is how Hurdle would do in them, where the managers make a difference. Matchups. Weather. Intensity. Umpires. Who would he put out there: starters (only 3), bullpen, the platoon guys. It made me cringe a bit.

Perfect example tonight. You have a 16 man bullpen right now. It's obvious after the 1st inning that Francis doesn't have good stuff. And yet, the buffoon allows him to pitch two more completely ineffective innings instead of growing a pair and taking the kid out.

I realize Jeff's the best pitcher you have but he's not exactly fragile mentally. If he doesn't have it, then find someone who does. He'll get over it.

That's the sort of thing the overly tanned twit is getting paid to do. And he fails at it time and time again.

The Rockies are extremely lucky the Padres decided to do a nosedive in LA this week and are still only 2 1/2 back.
