White was held out of his start, so it looks like he is a lock to pitch one of the two.

I wouldn't be surprised if they give Torres the other spot, in order to not push Friedrich too quick.


In other Rockies news, Chacin has yet to report to AAA and the Rox know about it. They are giving him time to fix some mental things before he reports. Chacin might be more broken than we thought.

Troy Renck says Chacin is not completely healthy and will go on the DL.

Volquez throws 8 straight balls, yet records an out. Cuddyer stole 2nd so much that he overslid it and was tagged out.

Make that 9 straight balls, most not close.

I think he would be canned. O'Dowd would rescind his handshake agreement, quote unforeseen circumstances, and fire him (hopefully to follow suit soon himself).

Escalona was optioned to make room for White. Renck suggested Rogers was a possibility too, but he is out of minor league options.

De La Rosa went 2 2/3 innings, 5 hits, 3 ER, 2 BB.

Hernandez should be fine, just has tendonitis lingering from his injury when he swings the bat.

and tomorrow I know we snap out of the skid.

Just a very depressing team lately.

Good thing is, AZ, SF and Padres really aren't playing well either. But, we can't win, so their losses aren't helping us at all. Dodgers are gaining quite a bit of ground.

Only player playing worth a damn on a consistent basis, is CarGo, not going to win many games with only one player playing good, consistent ball.

Hopefully White has an impressive 2012 debut tomorrow.

Hey dudes who are talking about the Rockies.

Is this how it works now? Individual threads for each series? I'm so confused. Everything is so confusing now.

But, as some as you know, I am very obsessed with the Rockies so I hope you will allow me to join in on your convos. :)

Always room for more. But it's been very depressing around here lately as I'm sure you can imagine. But yes every series has it's own new thread started. And the convo lasts the entire series. Then fades into oblivion.

Yes, I create a thread for every series we play.

Also, I will post the games lineup if I am around when it is released.

Also, in the, sadly, rare occasion that we win, under our awful skipper, I post game recaps. If we lose, I don't want to recap our bad game :(

What happened did they get blacked out? With the way Tracy and O' Dowd are running things I wouldn't be surprised.

I plan on going to at least 4 games this year, depending on how many hours I get at my job. Hopefully I get the hours I need..... >.<

You ever go to an away game?

No. Just for 12 games out of the 162 they don't show the game on Root Sports, don't know why really, but always have. Air 150 games, rather than all 162.

Nah, just home games, have season tickets luckily.

Yea im confused too. My phone said Giambi flew out to center, Cargo scored from second, and Cuddy thrown out at home?

Broncoholic3233
05-09-2012, 01:47 PM
We thought it was a HR.

Hit to dead center. Off the top of the wall or something then Cuddy was thrown out at home, even though he was safe they said.

So at the very least it should be 2-2. But, of course, we get screwed.

Giambi isn't out though, he's at 2nd with 2 outs.

3 Batting Stars:

Wilin Rosario: (1-4) R, 2B (4), 2 RBI (10)

Im hoping someone steps up and takes the leadoff spot, because I think he would do better in the 2 hole.

He's ok, but we will need to replace him soon. We've been through more second basemen than the Cleveland Browns have QB's. If Trevor Story can play 2nd, then maybe he could in the future. He won't be the Rockies shortstop, we all know that.

Right, I agree their playing style is very similar. Barmes may have been a bit more reliable as an every day kind of guy...he had a bit more power with the bat. Or, he at least had more potential power. But I'm extremely biased about that. I like Jon much more than I used to, but I really believe it's because Clint isn't on the team anymore, so he isn't losing playing time to him.

Ellis was a good player for us last year, I was sad to see him go. He was another Barmes-like player. The Rox just can't seem to figure out that we need to keep those guys around. Tulo brings the flash, our 2B doesn't need to.
