Seriously though, whenever I hear anyone blaming the layoff for the Rockies' stinker last night, I say "well, maybe they shoulda thought about that before they swept the Diamondbacks." (To their credit, I haven't heard of any of the Rockies themselves making excuses.)

The layoff definitely played its part. They were riding sheer momentum, and in baseball 8 days off is a lonnng time (not that I need to remind anyone here of that).

That said, I hope they kicked the rust off and tie it up tonight.

ETA: I'm not blaming the layoff entirely. The Sox played a fantastic game last night, too. Josh Beckett was filthy.

Beckett is near Sandy Koufax unbeatable (I said near) in the playoffs this year. The Rockies had almost no chance last night, layoff or not.
Tonight, they can put the ball in play against Schilling and I expect them to score more, but I also expect their rookie pitcher to get a case of FenwayCarmona-itis and nibble and walk several guys and build a high pitch count and not get beyond 5 shaky innings and the Sox to win 8-4 or so.

Yeah, the layoff played a HUGE part in that game. Anyone who has ever played baseball knows how difficult it is to jump back in after that long without a game.

That being said, they were going to lose that game anyways with Beckett on the mound. So, they need to just focus on tonight and see if they can push a few runs across the plate against father time.

I hope to God he spills some ketchup on his sock before tonights game. Condiment drama is the BEST drama.

Rockies should learn from the Tigers of last year in terms of a lay off.

Speaking of...I am kinda excited to see Dice-K at bat.

Anyone know how he did during interleague play? Has Papelbon batted?

Schilling did not look happy when he got pulled.

http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/Statis...getype=batting

Dice-K is 0-4 with 2 Ks at the plate this season.

Papelbon hasn't batted, and since he doesn't often pitch more than 1 inning, he's not likely to make it to the plate this series. He's probably crazy enough that he'd jump and swing at a pitch 8 feet in the air though.

Beckett has 2 HRs in his career.

No, but he exited with grace and class. I've liked him since he was a Diamondback.

Holy shit, that may be the worst version of God Bless America I've ever heard.

I swear at least half those harmonies were just WRONG.

And boys ... I'm sorry, I mean Boyz? It helps to have the melody somewhere in the harmony.
