Today’s Matchup – August 29, 2011

By Editorial Staff

Hey! The Rockies won in consecutive Sundays for the first time since April! Wanna take a shot at what their Sunday record is?

4-17. Ouch. And you wonder why they’re in third place.

Bright spot? Carlos Gonzalez was named NL Player of the Week for last week. Deservedly so, in my opinion.
