Quote Of The Day: Todd Helton On The Rockies
If we were any more relaxed, we'd need diapers and a bib, if that makes any sense.The Rocks start a three-game road series against the Dodgers tonight, with Ubaldo Jimenez (4-4, 4.14 ERA) squaring off against Brad Penny (16-4, 2.93 ERA). You might not know it, but with their 84th win on Sunday (a 7-3 win over the Pads, marking a sweep of the three-game set), it marks the Rockies' best season in their history. The Dodgers could play spoiler (the Rocks will face Derek Lowe tomorrow night, with Thursday's pitcher TBA), or they could grease the skids for a hot Colorado team that might just be postseason bound.
Bad Altitude is nervous:
Here's the truth: I don't want to write anything about a certain baseball team because I've never before been in a position where I honestly believed in them and I'm half-convinced that it's my own repeated season obituaries that have made the team suddenly so good.Apparently the Rocks have already printed up postseason tickets and mailed them to fans. Wow. I haven't gotten ours from the Angels yet.
I'm watching the games. I can't think of anything to say other than that I wish more people were. Desperate last-minute regular-season runs are as much if not more fun than playoff campaigns and Denver baseball fans don't know that yet.
