Lineup Card: Rockies vs D-Backs 4-15-12

Last night's crazy Recap: The Toddfather Saves The Day... Again


Colorado Rockies (4-4)

  1. Eric Young (CF)
  2. Tyler Colvin (LF)
  3. Troy Tulowitzki (SS)
  4. Jason Giambi (1B)
  5. Michael Cuddyer (RF)
  6. Wilin Rosario (C)
  7. Chris Nelson (3B)
  8. Jonathan Herrera (2B)
  9. Drew Pomeranz (P)
I'm not around Twitter right now but I can imagine there's a lot of talk about Jim Tracy putting his Sunday lineup behind Drew Pomeranz. I'm sure Jim would have done it anyway, but at least it makes some sense after last night's starting, stopping, and the late night at the yard. No formal complaints from me.

Note: Jordan Pacheco was the player optioned down to Triple A to make room for Drew Pomeranz. His struggles at third base (especially last night) are what synched this move, and unfortunately he may have a difficult time getting back up with Eric Young playing so well, Charlie Blackmon getting healthy and Nolan Arenado's arrival possibly coming in the next 6-8 weeks. 

Arizona Diamondbacks (5-3)
  1. Ryan Roberts (3B)
  2. Gerardo Parra (LF)
  3. Justin Upton (RF)
  4. Chris Young (CF)
  5. Paul Goldschmidt (1B)
  6. Aaron Hill (2B)
  7. John McDonald (SS)
  8. Henry Blanco (C)
  9. Trevor Cahill (P)
Any time there's no Miguel Montero in Arizona's lineup, it's a good day for Rockies pitching. Let's finish this sweep!
