Box Score Bytes - Game 92

- Game 27 of the Great Tracy Experiment: Record 10-17.  Pomeranz struggles through 3 innings.  Throws 53 pitches and gives up 7 runs.  For some the 4 man rotation is not providing the required recovery that most pitchers expect.  As fate would have it Rox traded one disappointment for another.  Sending Guthrie to KC and receiving Sanchez in return.  Guthrie sees the light and Sanchez probably feels he has gone from the frying pan to the fire.  Starter's record is now 4-13 with 10 no decisions and a bullpen record of 6-4.

- Tough night all around for team that is struggling and also has to hear about a far worse struggle with the shootings that took place the night before.  With the fires, the shootings, and the Rox it can be fair to say that this Colorado summer will not be remembered fondly.  With the real world around us maybe we make too much of the Rox and their miserable team.  In the context of all things it is really irreverent what our favorite team does.  While we do pay a part in all of this when it comes down to it, it's the Monforts and company that are paying out over $85 million for a team on pace for 100 losses.  Why should we really care other than Colorado deserves better and could use a nice diversion this Summer with the losses we have had.  Nice not to have your local team add to those losses.

- On the bright side, Rox lone All Star did have a grand slam, the second of his career.

- How unlucky are the Rox?  On a night when opposition commits 3 errors we still lose...
