Lineup Card: 7-2-11 Rockies vs Royals

If you're looking for Rockies game lineups and you don't feel like searching all over Twitter or waiting for to post them, check back to Heaven & Helton about 30-60 minutes before first pitch. They should be here waiting for you.

Logan Burdine really summed the deal up with this perfect paragraph.

"To be honest, I really don’t care about his bat. I know, at the very least, he will produce at a comparable level to the group they had. In my mind, this deal meets two key sets of criteria for any trade. First of all, he improves the team, and, second, they didn’t surrender more value than Ellis is worth. The Rockies gave up a reliever that was without a place on the big club."


Colorado Rockies (40-42)
  1. CF Carlos Gonzalez
  2. 2B Mark Ellis
  3. 1B Todd Helton
  4. SS Troy Tulowitzki
  5. RF Seth Smith
  6. 3B Ty Wigginton
  7. LF Charlie Blackmon
  8. C   Chris Iannetta
  9. P   Greg Reynolds
Get used to this lineup; we'll be seeing a lot of it over the next few weeks.

Kansas City Royals (33-49)
  1. 2B Chris Getz
  2. CF Melky Cabrera
  3. LF Alex Gordon
  4. RF Jeff Francoeur
  5. 1B Eric Hosmer
  6. C  Brayan Pena
  7. 3B Mike Moustakas
  8. SS Alcides Escobar
  9. P   Kyle Davies
Still bad.
