The Travails of Rockies Pitching

I have seen roughly about half the Rockies games to date. So I do qualify myself on a limited sample. In addition about 25% of those games have been in person which is a far better indicator...

Reflections on Baseball and Life from a "used to be"

I sat around the last two nights watching Ken Burns sequel with my son and daughter and contemplating a career that just quite did not make it to the show.  I watched highlights from players I had...

ESPN's Olney Pick Rocks. Kiss of death?

http://insider.espn.go.com/mlb/blog?name=olney_buster&id=5035186   Given our historic hatred of ESPN and basically anything east coast. Could this be a bad sign, an omen, a jinx, an albatross? ...

The 25 Man Roster (Locks vs ??) One month before ST

Given the lack of games to follow and my general boredom, I thought I would stir the pot with some roster predictions.  Here is the predictions and those with an L are considered locks.  I suspect...

Lansford Dismissed

Well Lansford takes the fall for the Giant offense or lack thereof.  We all know this guy is good and maybe we can get him back.  I think he would be an improvement over Baylor.  He did wonders for...

I sat in behind home plate in the advance scout section for both games with an old friend. -Need to acquire a right handed bat that is reliable next year.  Otherwise every team will be stacking...

De La Rosa Groin (Aka the day the season died)

Sadly I think the season imploded the four inning on Sat night in Dodger Stadium.  The point when De La Rosa left the game.  I fear the division was lost at that point, homefield, you name it.  I...

Top Ten Minor League Parks to Groupies/Food Night Life

Someone asked me this the other day so I thought I would share.  Now understand this is pre 1984, so times were different.  Now I apoligize if this is politically incorrect or offends the younger...

The Trade

looking somewhat suspect now.  Three for one with two most likely headed to the minors.  Once again the Rocks trade performance for "potential".  Another in a long line of salary dumps by O'Dowd. ...

Who are the other 103????

This A-Rod implication bears some serious issues.  I saw one guy post on ESPN the other day that every baseball player he beloved of his generation (Bonds, Arod, McGwire, Clemens, Sosa, etc) has...

Things to Look For in 2009 and beyond....

1.  Added pitching depth = more wins in 2009.  Should have happened two years ago but additional arms will mean more wins, more Q starts in 2009.  Based on pitching alone I would say this team is...

Weird.  It is very home laden from April-June and then become home laden in July-Sept.  Sept is virtually a home month.  Hopefully they will not be buried early and never recover.  Otherwise the...

General observations over the year. 1.  Offensively: a.  OBP from leadoff.  This year has been really bad.  Lineup needs table setters with good OBP guys in 1 and 2 slots with good speed.  This...

I was wrong!/25 Man roster

Watershed Moment?
