Quickly threw this together when I realized that more than 1/2 our bullpen is now a Matt of some variety. Let me know if anyone wants a wallpaper-type version of this and I'll whip it up. Big(ger) version

In the post-game thread from Saturday's victory, Rutabaga asked how many 1-hitters there have been in Denver, ever. I was curious and did a little research on BB-Ref's Play Index and found out. Since 1993 there have been three individual 1-hitters, all of them thrown by non-Rockies. They are? Jose Rijo (CIN) - 9/25/93 Pat Rapp (FLA) - 9/17/95 Roy Oswalt (HOU) - 9/6/08 Interesting that all of them occurred in September.

Check out this video from PNC Park's Opening Day. The Pirates put a lot of their YouTube videos online, which I think is a cool idea (even if their videos are a bit... meh). Anyway, I just particularly enjoyed the sight of a Rockies battlecruiser getting ready to bomb Pittsburgh, apparently. Always interesting to see fandom from the other side :)

All Star Game to have Permanent DH

5

As much as I appreciate what Bud Selig has done for the sport's popularity and revenue... he really needs to quit messing with on the field matters. If you're going to play ball in an NL ballpark, you need to play by NL rules - simple as that. AL managers need to learn the strategy of playing NL ball, and NL managers need to adapt to the DH when they play in an AL park. Unfortunately, Bud's Special Committee on Whatever decided that they needed to make some sort of mark this year. I know they said "nothing is sacred", etc, but... can you honestly imagine seeing a DH at Wrigley Field? Chavez Ravine? Or in our home ballpark?

A "Marked" Career

Occasionally I write some opinion pieces for the CU Independent, and I just had this one published in a Point/Counterpoint type thing about Mark McGwire. Figured it was baseball-related and the Rowbots may enjoy reading it :) . Also, here's another one I wrote on the sting of the NLDS loss: It Breaks Your Heart

Fowler's five-steal night among '09's best

MLB.com is doing a "Nine for 09" series, recounting some great moments from last season. Dex's record-breaking 5 steal night is #3 on the list, as a Christmas present from MLB.com to all the Rockies fans :) . Oh, and happy holidays to all you Rowbots out there.

NLDS Wallpaper - Now With More Aspect Ratios!

1

With the Rockies in the playoffs, a lot of FanPosts were made recently, and so my NLDS Wallpaper post got pushed off the front page. So I'm making a quick FanShot to let people know that I've added standard resolutions to my special NLDS wallpaper now, so if you tuned in yesterday and only saw widescreen, you're in luck today! Also, I went to go post a FanShot over on The Good Phight that linked to my FanPost over here, however they have a 1-day waiting period before you can post anything. So, if any Rowbots who are also...Phighters?...are reading this, could you go over to their site and post the link? I'll reward you with cookies :) .

MLB Playoffs Might Be Just What Denver Needed Check out this video that CBS4 put together. Apparently the Rockies are the #2 tourist attraction in Denver outside of the Zoo. This means that the playoffs create another month of baseball and profit for the city.

We officially eliminated the Padres from the post-season yesterday. Kind of a weird feeling, isn't it?

For posterity's sake (since this has already been discussed in the game wrap), here are our Rockies gracing the top story on ESPN.com's MLB section. Note that even though the Rockies have won 17 of 18 ballgames and are 0.5 games out of the wild card, the team is still considered to be out of the playoff race. Thank you Eastern SPorts Network for that insightful analysis - if you don't mind, we're going to go back to playing baseball now, mmk?

Bob Melvin Fired

8

As AZ Snakepit said, "Bob Melvin has gone from National League Manager of the Year to 'Do you want fries with that?' in barely eighteen months." Arizona throwing up a "Now Hiring" sign and Manny being suspended for 50 games. Hey Rockies, do you hear that? That's the sound of opportunity knocking.

Hardball Times, "Searching for the game's best pitch"

I'm not sure if this was linked anywhere, but I found it over at Beyond the Box Score.. According to The Hardball Times, Jeff Francis had the best changeup in the majors in 2007. Also of note, Marquis is/was #12 on the list of sliders.
