For the second game in a row the Rockies not only were unable to win, but were also unable to score any runs. After a 12-4 win in game one of the series against the Tigers on Friday, the Rockies were outscored 9-1 over the next two games.
The lineup manager Jim Tracy put on the field was different with Carlos Gonzalez being a late scratch. Eric Young Jr in left field instead of Gonzalez had to have Tigers hitter salivating. I would’ve like to have seen Tyler Colvin in left and Helton playing first instead of having his usual Sunday off.
If there is one thing that bothers me about Jim Tracy it’s his inconsistent lineups. We went through this with Clint Hurdle alot of the time. Stop tinkering with the lineup like it’s a Double A minor league team. The Rockies have proven themselves to be a major league team in name only, with a minor league mentality from the front office, to the manager and coaching staff, to at times the play on the field.
The Rockies have the day off tomorrow as they head to Philly for a 3 game series before returning to interleague play against the Rangers at the end of the week.
Tuesdays probables ROCKIES – Josh Outman(0-2, 8.44) PHILLIES – Cole Hamels(9-3, 3.34)
