The Friday Facts…

Patrick Saunders has a great article in the Denver Post on Jason Marquis and his attempts to improve his game, even tweaking his delivery. Marquis getting the start today against the Rangers at Hi Corbett Field has given up 3 runs in the first inning, an RBI to Josh Hamilton, and a 2 run homer to Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz.  

The Friday Facts…

The Miami Marlins are a step closer to a new stadium, as the city approved the measure yesterday by a 3-2 vote. Another vote is scheduled next week.

bud-seligBaseball “commissioner” Bud Selig really is not as bright as he believes he is. In the LA Times earlier this week is an article where the commish admits he didnt believe baseball would be affected by the current economy.

“I used to think we were recession-proof. I really did,” Selig said during the Angels’ 6-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs – Los Angeles Times

Now between the on going steroid controversy and this admission of stupidity about baseball and the economy, I think it’s safe to say it is time for a new commissioner. Mr. Selig you are clearly out of touch with reality, please do us the favor and resign. Selig also goes on to state.

 “This is different. Some economists are saying it’s the worst downturn since the Great Depression.”

What?! You saying Mr. Selig that you dont remember the Great Depression?

Game update – Apparently Apodaca’s tweaking of Jason Marquis’ delivery isnt going too well. Through 3 innings Marquis has given up 6 runs. Rockies trail 6-0.
