Lineup Card: Rockies @ Pirates

As I sit back to watch this Rockies game tonight, I do so with the standings and playoffs as far out of my mind as I can put them.  I'm not worried about that right now.  I just want to see this baseball team play a good game.

I want to see them be smart, execute, not look like totally lost defensively, give good ABs, make good pitches, be better than the Pittsburgh Pirates.  All this everyday obsessing over must win, if and buts, we still have a shot stuff is pointless until this team plays winning baseball consistently.

Rockies Lineup (56-52)
  1. CF  Fowler
  2. 1B  Helton
  3. LF  Gonzalez
  4. SS  Tulowitzki
  5. 3B  Mora
  6. RF  Spilborghs
  7. C    Iannetta
  8. 2B  Barmes
  9. P    Hammel

Pirates Lineup (38-70)
  1. CF  McCutchen
  2. LF  Tabata
  3. 2B  Walker
  4. 1B  Jones
  5. 3B  Alvarez
  6. RF  Milledge
  7. C    Snyder
  8. SS  Cedeno
  9. P    Duke
Same lineup 1-8 as last night.  Why change a thing?
