Balderdash

The Rockies were fortunate to take the final game of the Florida trip 1-0 despite the bats being buried in the frozen tundra.  I only have one word which is the headliner for this post.  They also lost the home opener 10-6.  There were a lot of comments by the tv crew and players themselves … Continued
