wont be hard to get a ticket, no one goes to their games. I had two seats in the first row right behind the left field wall. Got them like 4-5 days before the game.

That's a nice list. I want to hit Jacobs field after Turner.

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!
well after a little over a month of the season gone by, lets take a look at how the rockies are doing, shall we?

The Rockies are in the midst of a 7 game losing streak and their current record is 6-18 for a .250 winning percentage.

That is good for dead last in all of baseball, and they are on pace to go 40-122

How is the baseball buzz in Colorado now? It looks like the Vegas odds makers were a little generous in predicting 67 wins, as the under is looking damn good right now.

Now I know the Western Division is weak, but I dont think a final record of 40-162 is going to be good enough to sneak into the playoffs...

I did like your enthusiasm though

It is interseting that the shrmn8r hasn't been heard from since the Rockies lost their undefeated status in game 2 of the season.
But I'm sure he's right that there's plenty of room on the GenR bandwagon.

What the heck is wrong with people in Chicago...the White Sox have MLB's best record and can only draw 12,362 last night...you people don't deserve a winning team.

Is Kevin Brown's the worst contract in baseball history? What a shame its Steinbrenner who has to pay it (even funnier that he traded for it, didn't sign Brown to it himself).

Yea but the Nuggets are gonna end their series with the Spurs tonight in 5 games...too bad they'll end it by being blown off the floor.

At least the Broncos D can handle Peyton Manning when fall rolls around...

by the way

the sox sold 12000 tickets last night

but at the stadium it looked more like 6000 people showed up or so. 12000+ was the paid attendance. pretty pathetic.

yet wrigley still sells out and they blow... go figure.

perhaps the shrmn8r, the sophisticated sex robot that he is, was sent back through time to change the future for one lucky lady.


or maybe he's just embarassed like that tigers fan was last year... bitches.

^I really, really hope the Cardinals go on a losing streak soon, just so you and Chizip don't have to keep reminding us when they win.

Combined 2005 salaries of Yankees' planned 5-man rotation: $65.3 mill.
Starters' wins, losses, ERA: 8-12, 5.27

Combined 2005 salaries of the Cardinals' 5-man rotation: $17.5 million.
Starters' wins, losses, ERA: 15-6, 3.23

and this was before tonights 7 shutout innings by mulder

the cardinals entire rotation combined makes less than mussina

its good to be a cards fan

It would be really good if they crowned champions in April and early May.
Heck, after opening day the Rockies had the best record in the majors.
