Oh how I miss the days of Armando benitez - NOT

Hey Headache, perhaps we can get Roger McDowell or Randy Meyers out of retirement.....

I know it's just one game, but that pissed me off big time...

Joe Randa?! Freakin' Joe Randa?? The Joker ?!?!

Well, I wasn't addressing Pedro's start as much as the "quality start" statistic overall. I think a 4.50 ERA over six innings is "okay", but not "quality".

But back to Pedro. Nine straight Ks is great, but the currency of the game is runs, and for much of last year Pedro showed a shocking propensity to give up gobs of runs either early in the game (as he did yesterday) or towards the end of his start (like in Game 5 of the ALCS). The main thing is that he's been giving up a lot more long balls -- his opponents' slugging percentage jumped to .399 last year after being close to or below .300 for the last few years.

Okay, so yesterday he gave up a couple singles and then gave up a 3-run HR before striking out everybody else. You say the home run is one bad pitch (or perhaps one bad stretch of at-bats) over the course of a game. I say this sort of thing happens consistently over the course of a season.

I'm not really trying to bash Pedro here; he pitched well enough to win, and the Mets bullpen failed him. I'm just stating what I've observed over the last year.

I agree. This is pretty much what I was getting at.

there's still plenty of room for anyone who wants on the genR bandwagon...

these are a group of guys who have been playing together for two years for the colorado springs skysox. they may be new to the bigs, but they're not new to each other, and already have the clubhouse chemistry needed to succeed. they work hard and play hard. they have hustle, desire, and talent. talent!

they showed monday that they have the sticks to do the job at coors (which they sorely lacked last year), and the defense to help out the pitchers (8 of the padres 10 runs came on homers). clint barmes had a sweet diving stop in the hole at short finished off by a todd helton sweep tag when the throw pulled him off the base.

they will be an exciting team to watch, and the seats at coors field will fill back up. their is a buzz about baseball in this state that hasn't been heard in a long time.

and just remember the major league movies. the rockies are a lot like them. the gm (and maybe the owners) seem determined to drive the team into the ground. they players are a bunch of nobodies, except for the one longtime star (helton), and the other decent guy (wilson) that no one else wanted. they want to win, and are thrilled to even be in the major leagues.

monday's stats: miles (5-6 with 3 doubles), barmes (3-6, 1hr), helton (1-5), wilson (1-5, 1hr), holliday (3-5 with a triple), baker (2-5, 1hr), mohr (0-5), closser (0-5), and sullivan (1-1, with a double). this team will get the job done even when helton, wilson, and the pitching staff have off days (like monday).

the pitching numbers will never be good here, but the pitchers are mentally tough, and can do enough to keep the offense in striking distance.

so, my predictions for the season...
the vegas odds are that the rockies will win 67 games. i take the over on that...WAY over! they will make the playoffs this year. no doubt in my mind


get used to seeing this scene at the end of games in denver this year!

he is doing or just recently did a show in a town near where i live, and some promoter managed to plaster flyers featuring those ears in every building on campus. because everyone knows that's who college kids are most psyched about seeing live these days.

and no, i don't know why i felt the need to share that with you.
