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.  

A Kyle Parker Roundup

Excellent signing at the discounted price.  That he's going back to school to play football makes me wonder a little bit about his passion for baseball, but there's no doubt the talent is there and it's probably worth the wait assuming he gets through football in one piece.

Big if.

Which is why the Rockies and the Parker family have an insurance policy in place.  

Smart thinking all the way around.

And now, with Parker (Clemson) and 2nd rounder Russell Wilson (NC State) officially in the fold, Rockies fans will soon become ACC football experts.  Those conference rivals will meet November 6th at Clemson.
