Bring on Oswalt?
Position: 1st NL West
Games Back: --
Magic Number: 127
Quick pregame post, the Rockies face off against the Astros for Game 2 of the series in Houston. Cook against Oswalt, and after last night, boy, they really have something to prove. Hopefully Hurdle gave the team a nice chewing, namely young shortstop Clint Barmes, and maybe that will light a fire under their seats.
Watch for Oswalt to throw a long game, possibly going 7+ innings, tallying maybe 5 strikeouts, and 1 or 2 earned runs.
On the upside, look for Cook to throw the same game, but drop the Ks to perhaps 2.
The Rockies seriously need to capitalize on RISP tonight, as they hit the ball all over the park, but never when we could score on it.
Anyhow, enjoy the game, Good Luck, and GO ROCKIES!!!
