Chris Iannetta makes his hopefully triumphant return to the starting lineup tonight. Not a big fan of the catching rotation so far, even if Olivo has knocked a couple balls over the fence. I prefer to see Iannetta get 60-40 split in his favor unless it's clear he's struggling. Right now it's looking more 60-40 in Olivo's favor.
No Hawpe or Gonzalez in the lineup. Hawpe sounds more likely to pinch-hit or play defense. Indications are CarGo would only see emergency action.
Less than 10 minutes from first pitch. Let's ensure a winning homestand tonight.
- Bob Apodaca mic'ed up tonight. This oughta be interesting.
- Todd Helton made an error. Holy Sh*t.
- Jose Reyes walks to third as the Rockies completely fall asleep defensively. Not the sharpest start mentally.
- Cookie pitches around the error, the mental lapse, and a little bit of wildness to earn a scoreless first. I fully expect him to settle in now.
- Kinda starting to wonder when Dexter Fowler will start hitting righties or lefties this season. *Inhale* Patience.
