Ubaldomania remains in full swing. Given the coverage our ace has gotten this year, I personally will refrain from any calls of East (or West) coast bias in the media for at least a month. We're witnessing history, Rowbots. Enjoy!

Found this a hair humorous, given the use of FanGraphs info around these parts.

And a starting one at that. Marquis the Magnificent doesn't make the list though, but there is one Rockie in the "Notable Omissions" link at the end.

So what do you think?

Alrighty then. With April  behind us, I'm wondering what my fellow Rowbots are thinking.Our Rockies are 8-12. They've played poorly, they've played pretty well on a couple of occasions. They have...

I had really hoped for a new pitching coach next year as well, but clearly Hurdle and Apodaca are somehow conjoined.

I guess this isn't much of a surprise given how Cookie's pitched his last few outings. Still...sigh.
