First For Rox

Just eat food, try not to be crude or rude,
Kill the attitude, chill the serious mood...


Hey! That's Game One in the books! We'll be undefeated this year!

-Carlos Gonzalez wins the "it's all over, he's the greatest!" contest that the media and fans heap on a player after one day. However, unlike most of the players that get that honor, Gonzalez might actually live up to the hype. His speed is just an intangible at the top of the lineup, and his approach at the dish seems more disciplined.

-Jerry Schemmel, formerly the Nuggets' announcer seems like he should ease into his new radio role. He did get a bit too giddy after a few early plays (calm down Jerry, it's a long year) and stumbled over a few calls, but all-in-all he did well. Replacing the ("ahem") retired Jeff Kingery shouldn't be too difficult for the talented Schemmel, as long as he doesn't get in any fights with Rockies' mascot Dinger (which Kingery did, but many people will actually cheer him for) or belittle a team bus driver (which Kingery also did.)

-Notice to guys at your work: we don't want to hear about your son's breakaway soccer goal when the Rockies are bringing in their first runs of the year. Unless your kid is David Beckham and he's banging all five Spice Girls in his post goal celebration, tell me after the game.

-Franklin Morales has all the talent, but he just can't seem to channel his emotions/jitters/peeing his pants into throwing the ball over the plate and past the batter. It really seems like closer Huston Street will not be pitching anytime soon, so Manager Jim Tracy must keep Morales on a short leash. Rafeal Betancourt could be waiting for his time to close.

-Someone buy some blinds or shades for Miller Park. Shit, hang some damn tapestries from the sunlight. Someone has to have an old Grateful Dead one from their chronic days.

The worst is George Frazier and his "Back when I played..." segues.

Does Prince Fielder wear a small circus tent?

How dare you question Franklin!?!?!?!?

I still think he's going to be fine. I'm sure we all remember the Shawn Chacon experiment for the closing role.

There's a reason there are far fewer Rivera types than journeyman closers.

Going to be interesting to see how long Tracy sticks with that shi*bag Barmes this year. I swear to god his swing gets worse every year.
