Dare we begin to even whisper the word ‘Rocktober?’ The depth and character of this team will be on display in the next several days on a crucial swing through San Diego and San Francisco. I don’t think the Giants know what is headed their way.
Visitor’s frame in the ninth, two outs and two strikes on Torrealba who strokes a bases clearing double off of flamethrower Heath Bell. Boom! It’s a Rockies winner…
The Trolley Dodgers who have laughed off the Rox all year, might be hearing the the Thunder coming up behind them about now. What happened to their comfortable lead in the West?
The countdown to spring training game is on! Pitchers and catchers first and the first game 10 days later. Holliday and his sunflower seeds have gone to O Town and their white shoes. The young guns will get an opportunity to step up and take the starting job that they deserve. I can’t wait.
Does anybody else think Todd Helton should retire?
And so opening day of the Rox 2008 campaign finally arrives…it seems like almost five months since we last saw the boys in purple. Here’s a video of the Hawper showing off the pipes to stoke the fires.
Since the Rox play in the foreign Mountain Time Zone and so few people know who they are, I thought I would dig up their first album and scan the cover as a bit of public service. Helton, Matsui, Carroll, Atkins and Tulowitzki form the inpenetrable infield of the soon to be World Champions.
