Black Jerseys=Bueno

Tonights Rockies game was played in front of a crowd big enough to fit into an arena, not a 50,000 person stadium. It was very cold, though... there were blizzard conditions at some points during the day. The team seems to be finding its defensive form. Hawpe made a sprinting catch in the right field corner to end a 1-2-3 inning for Aaron Cook. Tulo turned a double play in the ninth to prevent any hope of a rally. We see shades of last season in these plays. Games are usually defined with a clutch hit, or quality pitching. Its the close 2-1 games that are decided with little bounces, and quality defensive plays. A team that has such offensive firepower, in the Rockies, has only scored 12 runs in 7 games to start the season. It is paramount that the pitching and defensive stay solid as the hitters get on track.

"The best uniforms in baseball are the Rockies black alternates. We can't lose!"
