The Colorado Rockies haven’t been firing on all cylinders yet, we haven’t really seen what this team is capable of doing their top batters:
The series moves from Philadelphia to the cold climate of Colorado now. The Phillies were at home on the road this year, but this is a new season now and you can’t really rely on what has happened in the past with the team at all.
We’ll see how the team performs on Saturday night at 9:37 pm, the Sunday game is announced now to start at 10:07 pm Eastern. Do they want any Philly fans to watch this series? First they play two games while everyone with a real job has to work, and now they’ll play late. Go figure. The scheduling gods haven’t been with us yet this year. Let’s hope the baseball gods help the Phillies get a much needed win out there in Colorado in Game 3.
Still no starter announced as of 7 AM Eastern just a day before the game for the Phillies. One starts to wonder, is this Charlie Manuel’s choice or a decision by committee now for the starter? The Phils will face Jason Hammel for the Rockies, he was 10-8 on the regular season with a 4.33 ERA.
