Who schedules Finals on Saturday anyhow?
Position: 1st NL West
Games Back: --
Magic Number: 131
This is gonna have to be a quick update, I'm supposed to be studying now anyhow.
Jennings against W-Rod today.
Things to watch for:
Hits. Jennings is posting a 1.62 WHIP, and Rodriguez just started eating again YESTERDAY after a week with a virus. I'm very surprised that Garner is starting him, despite his weakened state. At the risk of sounding sick/cruel, let's hope that the Rockies can take advantage of his state(moreso an interesting managing decision) and score a few more runs and claim a victory.
Jennings' key to success is to start throwing those good strong 0-1 pitches and claiming early command of the mound and the strike zone. The Astros have a history of roughing our boy up, to a tune of an ERA of 12.05.
Rodriguez...well, let's hope he doesn't puke on the mound. You can't wash that off.
Other things to watch for include a Helton 2B, a Preston Wilson K, an Atkins RBI (and let's hope no DP balls), and Brad Hawpe being reliable.
In Short, Go ROCKIES!!!
