Either Dexter Fowler needed another rest day, or his lat is acting up. Either way he is missing from tonight’s lineup against Joe Kelly and the Red Birds.
Tonight is the second of four against St. Louis and fans everywhere are hoping to see something better than baseballs equivalent of the keystone cops on the field.
With last nights loss, coupled with wins from the Cubs and the Padres, the Rockies have moved into last place in the NL West, and are tied with the Cubs for the worst winning percentage in the MLB (.380).
If that good ol’ inspirational quote on your grandmothers wall has any bearing, the one about hitting rock bottom before recognizing change or something like that, then perhaps we will see this team come back after the All-Star break ready to take on the world.
Extremely unlikely, but one thing is for sure – when you are the worst, expectations are lower and every win seems a bit better than it really is. Let’s hope tonight will be one of those “wins” we keep hearing about.
GAME TIME: 6:15 pm
