I actually watched *gasp*... FOOTBALL today. It's been that slow of a day. I'm not sure what I would have done if there wasn't any baseball to look forward to.

Current weather in Denver: 41°F / 5°C... and it's now raining.

Do you think Arizona has a chance in this game?

ish said...

I want Arizona to win tonight because I still want this game to go seven games.

ish said...

How about that pirouette by Tulowitzki?

redsock said...

hell of a turn.

obviously the snakes can win, but they must feel like they are being run over by a steamroller. after blowing several chances to win and losing in 11 the other night and jus the fact of the rockies winning every game in sight for the last almost month ...

ish said...

And then they're not getting any breaks tonight. Two double plays, one on a hot shot up the middle that found a home in Fogg's glove.

Some people feel that if the Rockies lose a game, they might not win again. I'm not sure how I feel about that. 19 out of 20 is a hell of a run. That means they've had to bounce back from a loss only once in almost a month.

I've seen that and I do not understand it at all. Why would they lose every game?

ish said...

LMAO. Well, there are worse things in baseball than picking your nose.

ish said...

THREE double plays in THREE innings.

Not a good start for the snakes.

ish said...

I like watching the replays and seeing the rain falling slooooowly.

redsock said...

ooooh, yorvit dong makes it 4-1 rockies in the bottom of the 6th.

dbacks dangerously close to being down 0-3. we all know how tough it is to come back from that.

or not ;)

ish said...

Time is running out on the Diamondbacks.

tim said...

Interesting, could Colorado start this sumbitch off 7-0?

ish said...

Wow.

The Diamondbacks are COOKED.

Obviously something like 2004 is not out of the realm of possibility, but I think we now know who our World Series opponent would be.

Now we just have to take care of business in Cleveland, starting tomorrow night with the $100 million man.

20 out of their last 21!

If anyone can do it, they can.

I think Colorado could beat Cleveland in the World Series, but boy, it'll be an interesting one against the Red Sox.

redsock said...

And TBS is already putting up the "only team to ever come back from 0-3" graphic"!

I LOVE IT!

F the CHOKERS!

...

I don't think there will another baseball game played in Arizona this season.

ish said...

Do the D-Backs bring back Brandon Webb to pitch tomorrow? Or do they go with Micah Owings?

ish said...

Once again, I say I do want Arizona to win tomorrow... and then Colorado can finish them off on Wednesday night.

This is essentially because Wednesday is an off-night for the ALCS and I'd like there to be an NLCS game.

So, pull for the D-Backs tomorrow, then we can go ahead and root for the Rox on Wednesday.

ish said...

Micah Owings will pitch tomorrow night for the Snakes.

The fundamental difference here is being assholes. The Rockies are hardly the assholes the Yankees are, therefore the Rockies will prevail as non-assholes should!

Josh Wilker said...

Here's hoping the Diamondbacks lose game 4 too. If the Red Sox survive the Spiders, the midges, and Trot, it can't hurt if the team they face in the WS has met no resistance in the playoffs and has been cooling their heels for many days, a la last year's Rockies, the Tigers.

ish said...

Only 8.5 hours until the game!

tim said...

Is this the Springsteen concert game? (i.e. threading @ threadsox?)

If so, I can return the favor with the text'ing redsock, or are you guys gonna just watch it in the AM tomorrow?

Can you imagine the WS in Denver later this month? They are going to have to shovel the snow from the basepaths.
