In response to Eric Byrnes feeble attempt to explain away the DBacks collapse against the Kid Rox where he stated that the Rockies were simply ‘lucky’, the beneficiaries of the obviously tainted umpiring staff, and had clearly been outplayed by the Diamondbacks superior team, young Mr. Tulowitzki opined “They can outplay us all four games. If we end up winning the series, I’ll be fine with that.”
A Clint Hurdle in the making?
That line, originally tossed off by both Butch and Sundance as they looked over their shoulders at the pursuers who would not quit, has been asked more often in recent days of the surging Colorado Rockies. Few of them had were familiar with the players, much less having seen the team play. Strange, in a world of satellite television and 24 hours sports news. Perhaps the reason that the Kid Rox are such strangers is that they are not in the news for dog fighting, steroid abuse, tantrums and threats to sit out their contracts, drug problems, alcohol driven incidents, or any of the other myriad issues that athletes succumb to these days.
Perhaps USA Today was on to something back in June when they ran the story entitled “Baseball’s Rockies seek revival on two levels.” Give the article a read and get to use our boys in Purple (who have stuck with the black tunic in hopes of not interrupting the streak) a little better.
The Kid Rox took it to the Phillies again yesterday behind the grand slam by
bomber power hitter the situational hitting of Kaz Matsui. Oh what New York would give for him now! Two and ought and back to the friendly confines of Coors Field for a Saturday night in LoDo. Rocktober Baby!
In response to yet one more dumb question the Rockies have received in the past few days, the Soul Patch speaks…
Asked the importance of winning Game 1, Rockies manager Clint Hurdle said, “I don’t know. I don’t have any experience to draw upon. But I would think it would beat the heck out of losing Game 1.”
Kid Rox in 4…
Bottom of the 13th inning, Padres leading by two runs and Trevor Hoffman on the mound. One of the most feared closer’s in all of baseball strides to the mound sans his usual theme music [though the Rockies haters on TBS didn’t fail to dig it out of the CD pile] and ….PROMPTLY LOSES THE GAME AND SEASON!
The Colorado Rockies are unstoppable now as we wing into Philadelphia! All the aspens will now turn purple in honor of the conquering heroes.
Eleven wins in a row and three to go at the Keg. Never give up hope until the last out is counted!
