Don't Be Bored

I don't want to leave you, my loyal readers, hanging on an off-day, but I also don't want to write a post that's just fluff. So I'm going to start a new off-day feature designed to give you something to do in the absence of a Rockies game. I try to keep up with the Rockies/general baseball blogosphere, so here I bring you a collection of the best articles and blog posts I read in the past few days. Enjoy.

  • Here's my recap from last night's game if you missed it.
  • Jim Armstrong gives us the skinny on Jason Hammel's balk last night. Hammel's explanation is even more embarrassing than the one I made up for him. Maybe he should have read my blog before he gave that interview.
  • MLB Trade Rumors gives us Dan O'Dowd's latest sound bite about looking to trade for better pitching. I'm okay with that, as long as they don't dump a bunch of great prospects for an innings-eater who will earn a living with no-decisions.
  • Frank the Druid's essay about flawed pitching stats was borne out of a discussion we had on Twitter Tuesday night. I vehemently disagree with Matt Belisle getting the win for that game, since the tying run crossed the plate on his watch. But, everything has a formula, and there's no room in that for common sense.
  • Sometimes it's fun to laugh at your enemy a little bit. Especially when that enemy is the San Francisco Giants. Hahahahahaha Giants!!
  • Ben Warwick considers what might happen if the Rockies played in the American League. I hope against hope that we never have to see that occur in the real world, but it is interesting to think about how they would do, given their record against the AL in the past 5 years.
  • Andrew Fisher takes on the All-Star Game and whether other teams' fans/coaching staffs will come through for the Rockies. I personally used up all 25 of my votes the very first day to push for an all-Rockies NL team but, well, my voice is small.
  • My favorite recap of Monday night's game came from Mark Townsend. I don't like American League baseball. But I like that the Rockies are awesome at it.
Okay. Time to go walk the streets of Manhattan and see if I run into any Rockies.
