We’re halfway through the work week and I know I’m not the only one who is ready for the weekend to get here. So if you didn’t figure it out, MOTW is middle of the week, where I will just post some random thoughts on the Rockies, baseball, and other things that may or may not be related.
First off, Is anyone really surprised that Japan won the WBC for a second time? The bigger question would be, was anyone suprised that the US wasn’t in the final round of the World Baseball Classic?
The Rockies fell to the Cubs yesterday 9-8. Is anybody in Major League Baseball going to have a solid 5 man rotation that’s not questionable going into the season? So to make the point the Rockies aren’t the only team with this problem.
According to Corey Brock this morning on mlb.com, he sees the NL West as finishing like this. 1. Dodgers, 2. Giants, 3. D’backs, 4. Rockies, 5. Padres. Your thoughts?
Anyone with any Rockies roadtrips planned for the upcoming season? Where are you headed or where would you like to go? So far I’ve got 2 planned for the season. June 26-28 I’ll be in Oakland for the A’s series, with a quick trip over to Modesto on the 29th to watch the Rockies minor league Modesto Nuts play. I then will be off to D.C. for the series between the Rox and Nats, August 18-20.
Need a catcher? It looks as if the Rockies are also shopping Yorvit Torrealba according to Troy Renck.
Rockies face the Angels this afternoon at 2:05 in Tempe.
