Guthrie leads a young staff (exception Moyer) against the rest of the NL west. Hoping to get strong innings out of all these guys. Guthrie has proven himself a workhorse in the Baltimore, Nicasio's a walking miracle, Chacin's got good stuff but need work on his control, and Moyer is a crafty vet trying to hit 250 career wins.
Setup man-Matt Belisle- http://www.mlbtheshowfranchise.com/tcbl/tcblreports/players/player_18331.html
Closer- Rafeal Bettancourt. - http://www.mlbtheshowfranchise.com/tcbl/tcblreports/players/player_18330.html
Leaders of the bullpen include proven stud Matt Reynold, young Rex Brothers. With Belisle and Bettancourt closing out.
Expect to see Ramon Hernandez and Wilin Rosario to split time this season behind home. Hernandez is a newly acquired FA helping to mentor the young Rosario.
Career .320 hitter Todd Helton Returns for his 15th? season in Colorado.
Free agent from Boston, Marco Scutaro is manning 2nd base, he provides a leadoff hitter with a great eye to get on base ahead of the heavier hitters.
Chris Nelson returns, this season at third after the spring fizzling of Casey Blake who was cut.
Gold Glove and Silver Slugger Winner Troy Tulowitzki mans the hotspot.
Carlos Gonzalez, Dexter Fowler, and Michael Cuddyer will see most the action in the spacious coors field green
Three games down.
Opener was a thriller 2-1 victory with Todd Helton knocking in the game winning RBI in the bottom of the 9th vs CPU Padres
Dodger at Rockies: One bad inning really opened up the floodgates in this game versus Moon. Pullpen's shaky, we lose 9-2
Nationals at Rockies: Gio pitches a one hit gem to shut out the Rockies 8-0. GG ISLtwins.
Time to get the bats going, I need to hit the batting cages and learn all over again how to take a bad pitch.
Rockies Slide continues to 6
Can't score runs, and our bullpen is struggling. So i've watched this for inspiration, many times.
Rockies Fire Pitching Coach Bob Apodaca
After a dismal first 1/3 of the season in which the Rockies organaization has decided to make some changes starting not with the Players but rather PC Apodaca. A beleagueured Apodaca commented "I guess this is best for everyone. I'd like to thank the Organization for the past and wish them the best in the future". Hard for Colorado Fans to say goodbye to the Veteran but as they say, numbers don't lie. Rockies wouldn't comment on if they are in the process of hiring his replacement.
But whover claims the spot has a his work ahead for him this season, yet the outlooks isn't all bad. The Rockies Farm organization has some strong arms down there.
Losing streak ends at 13
A pinch hit Homerun in the top of the by Jason Giambi enough to put the Rockies past Pittsburgh. Even though they went nearly 6 innings of perfect baseball by the Pirates pitcher, the three hits they eeked out proved to be enough. Lets hope this momentum can carry through to next week. We'll see.
