The Colorado Rockies haven’t scored in 23 innings!
Things are going great!
Just kidding; this is exactly what happens whenever they go on the road — and especially when they face decent pitching in the process.
Considering Jacob deGrom is pretty filthy, and considering how the Rockies’ offense struggles on the road, well, we knew this was coming. And considering that today the Rox are going to face Noah Syndergaard in the getaway day game… expect at least a few more shut out innings.
CarGo: deGrom ‘best pitcher in the game’ (Rockies.com).
This is a hell of a quote. Sure, deGrom dominated the Rockies on Wednesday night, but it’s worthy to note that CarGo — who’s seen all kinds of aces in his career — believes deGrom is right now the best of the best. Not saying he’s not, but… wow.
RCSNY Podcast, Episode 14 (Rockies Zingers).
Jake Shapiro and the guys at the RCSNY podcast have Ryan Spilborghs on for the episode. This is a pretty cool get for the guys, who talk to Spilly about his career, and how he was one of Jake’s favorite players growing up.
Rockies call up McBride, DFA Stubbs (Rockies.com).
The Rockies have gotten rid of Drew Stubbs! This is noteworthy, considering how well he was doing for the last several weeks, especially in a pinch-hitter role, but it’s also interesting that Matt McBride is the one called up and not Wilin Rosario. Nevertheless, we’ll see what McBride can do with the Rockies after having another monster season at AAA Albuquerque.
Rusin getting opportunity to prove worth to Rox rotation (Rockies.com).
Do we believe Rusin is going to get a legitimate chance at the rotation next season? He’s sure pitching like it. And he certainly will be better than next year’s hypothetical Kyle Kendrick-type free agent signing.
