Lineup Card: Rockies @ Giants 5-14-12

Sunday's Recrap: Well That Weekend Sucked


Colorado Rockies (13-20)
  1. Marco Scutaro (2B)
  2. Tyler Colvin (CF)
  3. Carlos Gonzalez (LF)
  4. Troy Tulowitzki (SS)
  5. Todd Helton (1B)
  6. Michael Cuddyer (RF)
  7. Wilin Rosario (C)
  8. Jonathan Herrera (3B)
  9. Christian Friedrich (P)
So Tyler Colvin has taken hold of the second spot in the order (for now). Jonathan Herrera, who had been hitting second in his starts, drops to eighth (for now). And it might be safe to say Wilin Rosario and Ramon Hernandez are in a 50/50 timeshare behind the plate (for now). 

San Francisco Giants (17-17)
  1. Gregor Blanco (RF)
  2. Joaquin Arias (3B)
  3. Melky Cabrera (LF)
  4. Buster Posey (C)
  5. Angel Pagan (CF)
  6. Brett Pill (1B)
  7. Charlie Culberson (2B)
  8. Brandon Crawford (SS)
  9. Ryan Vogelsong (P)
Nooooot exactly the Giants we're used to seeing over the past three seasons. No Pablo Sandoval (DL). No Freddy Sanchez (DL). No Aubrey Huff. No Brandon Belt. And maybe most importantly, no Nate Schierholtz.

Will all of those absences be enough to give Colorado a rare win in San Francisco? Does it even matter? We'll let you know in a few hours.
