Lineup Card: Rockies @ Dodgers

Do two quandaries...

  1. Rockies stink on the road.
  2. Rockies stink against the Dodgers all the time.  
breed a solution?

I guess we'll find out this week.

Pregame notes -- Kyle Parker roundup.

Rockies Lineup (61-56)
  1. 2B  Young
  2. CF  Fowler
  3. RF  Gonzalez
  4. SS  Tulowitzki
  5. 3B  Mora
  6. 1B  Helton
  7. LF  Spilborghs
  8. C    Iannetta
  9. P    Chacin
Tracy Ringolsby broke the correct news that was Taylor Buchholz was placed on the DL to make room for Chacin's return.  Renck was left guessing and prematurely tweeted it was Dexter Fowler getting the boot.  Still not sure if he's completely aware of the situation.

That it why I support and trust Ringolsby.  He absolutely owned this story and is much more concerned about being right than being first.  

Dodgers Lineup (60-59)
  1. LF  Podsednik
  2. 2B  Theriot
  3. RF  Ethier
  4. 1B  Loney
  5. 3B  Blake
  6. CF  Kemp
  7. SS  Carroll
  8. C    Ellis
  9. P    Kershaw
Worst Dodgers lineup I've seen in five years.  Easily.

Give Renck a break, it dosen't really matter who is right or wrong, Renck corrected himself right when he found out it was bucholtz.

Then what matters? There was no reason for his "educated speculation" in this case. Wait for the official word and report it. Don't float bad information out there for people to overreact to when the right information was coming sooner than later.
