Box Score Bytes - Game 98

- Game 33 of the Great Tracy Experiment: Record 12-21.  Pomeranz continues to be that starter that shows some potential but still is lacking that veteran umph to gut through those rough innings.  He has started 10 games, going 1-6, with an ERA of 4.99.  He has averaged about 5 innings a start.  He went 5.1 yesterday throwing 87 pitches.  In the end I hope this kid finds whatever it is that makes pitchers be good because when all is said and done he will always be tied to our greatest starter, the one we traded away.  Starter's record is now 5-16 with 12 no decisions and  bullpen record of 7-5. 

- At this point I have given up trying to get Troy Renck and anyone else to listen that it isn't Coors Field that is the problem for the Rox pitchers.  Time after time pitchers come in and can tame the beast.  Tonight it was Bronson Arroyo who pitched into the 7th and got the win without giving up a run, despite having an 0-2 record with an 8.84 ERA in three career starts up to this point.  Regardless of the ball park a mature hurler can survive the Beast...something to think about before we trot out a bunch of Rookies next year...

- After the game, Marco Scutaro was traded to the Giants.  After a slow start and Tulo's injury, Marco was a steadying influence.  Batted .271 with 102 hits in 95 games and scored 47 runs, It is too bad the tandem of Scutaro and Tulo never really got to show off.  Good luck and thanks for being a professional.
