Atlanta Freaknik

The Rockies completed an epic sweek in the ATL to plunge further down the NL pecking order. Of course, it has lead to the chorus of panic in the streets to fire the manager, trade away the team at the deadline, neuter Dinger, bench everyone from Aaron Cook to Marvin Freeman, and demolish Coors Field and replace it with another Ikea.

Is this season over? Sure feels like it. This team was vastly overrated and is basically half AAA right now with even some AA players creeping into the mix with injuries and ineffectiveness.

What to do what to do what to do? They've tried nearly everything, so perhaps it is time to wave the white flag. There will be great interest in Ty Wigginton, Jason Giambi, and Huston Street. Get some the proverbial prospect or perhaps a ready made player that can help immediately (ie a salary dump player.) There's no reason to think this team will go into Washington against a hot Nationals team and get any sort of momentum. (Optimism creeps in: seven straight games at home following the break. Oh yeah, see results of the last five games.)

Seems awfully damn close to the end of the year. More fine Swedish furniture may be coming to the Denver area.

They've played horrible baseball all year long, no debating that.

However, currently SF is on an unsustainable pace for pitching. I just don't see guys like Vogelsong having the kind of 2nd half that he's had so far.

I think SF comes back to the pack a bit and a good run right out of the gate in the 2nd half can get this team right back in the mix.

Secondly, you're going to need Wiggington for the next couple of years until Arenado is ready to take over at 3rd.

And you can't trade Street until you're 100% sure that Brothers is ready for that role. And he's not, yet.

We'll see how it goes now that all those pesky expectations have gone away again.
