Box Score Bytes - Game 80

- Game 15 of the Great Tracy Experiment (or maybe yet the Great Train Wreck?): Record 6-9.  Francis continues to thrive in the Experiment.  He went 5 innings with 77 pitches and got a win! The bullpen with Roenicke, Brothers, Belisle, and Betancourt held the lead and got the save with 4 innings of 4 hit ball...whew!

- Colvin's three run dinger was just enough and Rox won 3-2.  Sometimes one hit does make the difference.  Now if only O'Dowd could steal a few pitchers like he has done with trades for CarGo and Colvin.  He is currently batting .358 in his last 18 games with 7 homers and 22 RBIs.  It is a young man's game Mr Helton.

- I don't mean to pile on Helton but when is it time to say goodbye to a figure head on your Mt Rushmore of Rox?  I feel like a terrible fan but to be honest in two years if this team is going to win again it isn't going to be because of Todd...with this as a throw away season we need to play the future.

- Francis got franchise win 57 moving him past U-Ball and one behind second in Jennings.
