\Well, its all over. The best season the Rockies has ever had was ended by the Phillies today in Denver. The Rockies, down 2-1 in the 8th put up three runs and took a 4-2 lead. Then what do they do? They bring in one of the most successful closers of the season Huston Street. Now Huston gave up the game in the 9th yesterday as well, which put us in this season ending position. Street who apparently will face the same guys who owned him the night before, why not give Morales a chance at these lefties? Anyways I don't feel like getting into all of it but Street blew it again and then we couldn't tie it up with the heart of our order and there you have it, they choked and we lost. Season Over. Man that sucks.
There is always next year. It's just a game. I've heard it all but this hurts. As a fan I always want a win, who doesn't. But having the lead and then blowing it with 1 out left to force a game five (in which I felt the starting pitching matchup in game 5 favored the Rockies as well) really really hurts. As for next year I am not sure what we can expect. We are going to have to deal with the Dodgers all over again, as well as the Giants who I'm sure won't be going anywhere either. Right now I just don't feel like projecting our finish next season.
We will have Jeff Francis back into our rotation but that leaves one guy out? Hammel? Marquis? De la Rosa (I hope not). I'm not sure what will happen. Will Helton be back? Hawpe? Atkins? Only time will tell. I guess I will write more then...
Depressed in Denver...
I also have to give credit to the Phillies, as much as I don't want to but congrats and I hope you beat the Dodgers cause I at least hate them more then you guys. But I have a feeling no one is going to get past the Yankees.
Great Season Rockies I wish you could have gotten back to the Series and then most likely been swept again but at least we would have been there. I really hope we keep Jim Tracy as the Manager, he deserves manager of the year, I will see you guys in Tucson for spring traning.
