Lackluster Recrap: Why would you help a snake?

I don't understand why, but the Colorado Rockies continue to make life easy for the Arizona Diamondbacks in the NL West.

Well, alright, I do why understand -- Arizona is good and the Rockies are not -- but they can't raise their game for at least one of these meetings?



I just hope that when the Diamondbacks clinch this division in the next two weeks, they send a bottle or two of champagne to the Rockies clubhouse. It would be the proper thing to do.

Diamondbacks 10, Rockies 7 (boxscore)

-- Just another one of those starts for Esmil Rogers. I don't know. The rough first innings are always there. The good second and third innings are always there. Then comes the rough ending in the fifth or sixth.

At this point he's at about seven starts after missing a lot of time on the DL. He should be approaching the time where he could stretch out for 7-8 innings, he can just never get there. Maybe we'll see some progress over the final 3-4 starts, but I'm foreseeing a spot starter/long reliever role in 12.
