- "Three balls left the ballpark," Tracy said after today's lost. "That's the difference in the game." And once again we have to go back to management and wonder why we traded for a guy that allows home runs at an alarming rate. Below is the Top 50 home run to hit ratios from 2004 - 2012 (min 500 IP). Picked 2004 because that is when Guthrie entered the league. Guthrie sits at 33 on the list with Moyer at 20. The average for this period is about 0.11.
And if we look at the last 5 years (min 500 IP) Rox now have two of the Top 10. Hey O'Dowd couple of these guys are probably available. Why don't we prove your theory about fly ball pitchers and altitude once and for all...
- Rox get outscored by 20-7 against one of the poorer offensive teams in the league. Out hit by 31 - 19.
- 4th time this season Colorado has surrendered consecutive homers.
- On the bright side at least our team tries to make it exciting in the late innings. Of course most of the time Rox are so far behind most teams just don't care.
