Hey skip. We are playing a double header you moron.

Save the bullpen. Let Nicasio go another he's under 100.

Wow. It's no wonder we suck.

Blondie79
05-28-2012, 02:22 PM
uh that was an out,,

CinnaMunMun
05-28-2012, 02:23 PM
Definitely an out. Now Ottavino has speed on 2nd with no outs instead of no on and one out.

What do you know, they score after he pulls Juan early.

Whose to say he's even on if Nicasio is still on the game.

Tracy is a moron. Pulling your starter with 94 pitchers and double header afterwards. Let's waste our bullpen. BRILLIANT.

C'mon man. Nicasio was far from good today. He used 3 arms and we have an extra one because of the double header. The only one who probably isn't available is Ottavino.

He also helped the win by pulling Giambi for Guthrie as a runner. If the big guy is running to 2nd, no way the SS botches the throw and chances are he runs it over.

LOL. So we now have to compliment him on doing the obvious and pinch running a 41 YO big 1st basemen? A move every other manager would make?

94 pitches. He could have gone 7 easily. Moronic move. Everyone around us was pissed too.

Yes. :D

Nicasio had 6 ER and was erratic. Ottavino was scored on because of a perfect bunt and a bad call. Belisle threw 7 pitches and is available, Betancourt threw 11 and should be good.

Broncoholic3233
05-28-2012, 03:49 PM
Look...I'm stoked we won. Fact is, I disagree. Lot around us disagreed.

In a double header, he shouldve let him go one more. It's not like he was over 100. He just had a smoother inning. He could've gone another.

And yes, the ump helped them, no doubt. But he was the one who allowed him to get on in the first place and gave the single to Altuve afterwards. I don't trust our bullpen at all. I trust Nicasio over them.

When it's all said and done. It wasn't too bad and didn't cost us. Could've been worse.

But I said this before it happened. Not in hind-sight. We got pretty lucky with the error and blooper. We could easily still be playing right now and that extra arm we used could've hurt a lot more. :shrug:

CinnaMunMun
05-28-2012, 03:59 PM
Don't forget that extra player though. They called up Torres for the 26th man rule. We have to "remove" a player for the second game as per the rule, so we actually have an extra pitcher.

but yea overall he was playing to win in regulation....again. At least he is consistent. :laugh:

Do you get to go to the second game with the same ticket, or is it considered a different game?

Different ticket. at the bar waiting it out.

Big crowd today and probably a sellout tonight so couldn't do same tickets.

I've seen two strikes that were blown by the ump because he was too distracted by Nieves.

The pitch to Lyles was down the middle but Nieves stumbled throwing it back and the ump forgot to call it. Nieves even knew it and was shaking his head.

I can't think of a general manager in baseball as good as Dan O'Dowd. Granted, I don't know all of them. I do get a chance every once in a while to speak with them, but I just think Dan is head and shoulders above everyone else.

He trusts Dan....

Everyone here should do the Beat the Streak thing on mlb.com!

It is free, and you pick players to get hits. You can pick up to two players per day.

If you get your hit streak to 57 (beating the MLB record), you win $5,600,000. If nobody wins that, the person with the longest streak gets $10,000.

You get 30, you get a free month of mlbtv.
You get 35, you get $50 at the mlb.com store.
You get 45 (NL record), you get $100 at the mlb.com store.

Right now I am at 5, but Melky Cabrera looks like he will break my streak.

05-30-2012, 11:49 PM
Outman started 25 games with the A's....he's said he feels more comfortable as a starter.

I kinda figured once I heard Carlos Torres, that he'd be given the shot, didn't figure Torres to be the guy.

It's not a spot start. He'll get at least 3 starts to prove himself it sounds like.

He's gotta start somewhere, and on Friday, he'll have a PC of 50. So yeah, it's questionable, but it's more of a 'longer term' type of thing I guess.

Just when I start to enjoy the rockies again, starting pitching has to come bring me back to reality.

It's 4 runs at Coors. It is what it is.

Our pitching won't matter if our offense does work like its meant too. Our pitching on the road improves, where our hitting isn't as potent.

Let's see what happens.

Its not just 4 runs at Coors. If pitching was decent it wouldn't bring me down. Right now I see hot streaks as hindering the rockies abilities to move forwards. If its another 2007 hot streak though, that would be awesome.

So glad we locked up Cargo for the long term!

I'd say too small of a sample size so far on Cargo but definitely has the potential to have a better career.

If you ask me, as long as Gonzalez can stay healthy, he can easily have a better career. Walker had too many injuries...
