Lineup Card: Rockies @ Giants

Manny Delcarmen Trade Thoughts (here)

As I said in my Recap of last night's victory, the Rockies need to score some runs tonight.  Preferably some runs early in the game.

The Giants, to me, are a mentally fragile team.  We saw how quickly they faded away last season when they dealt with adversity.  Though they are far more talented this season, they are showing signs of a team that could fade again with a little more adversity.

Score early.  Plant some seeds of doubt.  Take advantage.  Even things up in the loss column.
