Lineup Card: 8-22-11 Rockies vs Astros

The Rockies open the biggest series of the season tonight...

Alright, I'm lying. But it is a pretty big series for Houston... as they look to avoid elimination from the playoff race... in August.

Colorado Rockies (60-68)
  1. LF Eric Young
  2. CF Dexter Fowler
  3. RF Carlos Gonzalez
  4. SS Troy Tulowitzki
  5. 1B Todd Helton
  6. 3B Ty Wigginton
  7. 2B Mark Ellis
  8. C   Chris Iannetta
  9. P    Jhoulys Chacin
Chacin has pitched down the competition at times this season. I don't know that that's possible though against these Astros.

Houston Astros (42-85)
  1. CF Jordan Schafer
  2. 2B Jose Altuve
  3. LF J.D. Martinez
  4. 1B Carlos Lee
  5. RF Brian Bogusevic
  6. 3B Jimmy Paredes
  7. SS Clint Barmes
  8. C   Humberto Quintero
  9. P   Brett Myers
This is Astros lineup is a who's who of who the hell is that guy? I can tell you this... Altuve is fast. Bogusevic is pretty strong. And that's about it. Maybe I can tell you more after the game.
