Gameday Thread, #144: 9/11 vs. Rockies

Ortiz (5-9, 6.64)
Cook (4-1, 3.47)

Oh, joy. An Ortiz start at Coors Field. Just what we want, as we once again chase our first sweep since April. Like Estes and Vargas, Ortiz has also been notably better on the road than at home. Except with Ortiz, "better" is a relative term, since his road ERA is still over 6.00. And that's before Coors Field works its magic. I'm not expecting to get the sweep today, but Ortiz was not too dreadful last time out; let's hope for something equally mediocre today, as opposed to the usual incompetence. Yes, manage those expectations...
