The Colorado Rockies are now 48-70, and their .407 winning percentage is now the second-worst in all of baseball, ahead of only the Philadelphia Phillies. Congratulations!

On Wednesday night, the Colorado Rockies lost to the Washington Nationals 4-1 at Coors Field. We could write up another recap as I’ve done so many times this year, but come on… you already know how this one goes: Jorge De La Rosa throws the ball well (well, effectively wild, but he did great) for six innings, and then Rafael Betancourt, John Axford, and Gonzalez Germen decide to mess that all up.

Oh yeah, the Rockies’ offense also got two hits. At Coors Field.

I don’t know about you guys, but I am feeling the dog days of August. Maybe it’s the heat (it’s hotter than hell in L.A. right now) or the fact that the Rockies are 2-8 in their last ten — or both of those things — but goodness, it’s getting harder to follow this ballclub night in and night out when you already know how these games are going to play out.

Is Jeff Bridich going to do something about the bullpen? Will nothing really change until the September call-ups (which are coming on the seventh of September, I believe)? Will he do anything this winter to improve the rotation and/or the bullpen?

Stay tuned, kids, because we’re going to be seeing quite a bit more of this before it ever gets better in Colorado.
