Lineup Card: Rockies @ Astros 4-8-12

Colorado Rockies (1-1)

  1. Tyler Colvin (CF)
  2. Jordan Pacheco (3B)
  3. Carlos Gonzalez (LF)
  4. Troy Tulowitzki (SS)
  5. Jason Giambi (1B)
  6. Michael Cuddyer (RF)
  7. Wilin Rosario (C)
  8. Jonathan Herrera (2B)
  9. Juan Nicasio (P)
As always, Jim Tracy empties the bench for a Sunday game. But you know something? This lineup doesn't appear to suck. This lineup is actually intriguing. This lineup is, dare I say, a little bit exciting. Now I hope they're a lot bit productive.

Houston Astros (1-1)
  1. Jordan Schafer (CF)
  2. Jose Altuve (2B)
  3. J.D. Martinez (LF)
  4. Carlos Lee (1B)
  5. Brian Bogusevic (RF)
  6. Chris Johnson (3B)
  7. Jason Castro (C)
  8. Marwin Gonzalez (SS)
  9. Bud Norris (P)
Here's something to think about; If the Astros win this game today, they will have a winning record for the first time since July 29, 2009. I'd really prefer the Rockies not be the team directly responsible for that.
