Gameday Thread #88: 7/9 vs. Rockies

Juan Cruz, RHP (3-4, 4.53)
Aaron Cook, RHP (6-7, 3.61)

Just a quick update really, since I'm intending the usual Sunday long-lie, so might not be up in time for first-pitch. The plan probably involves watching Madagascar; or, rather re-watching it, this time on DVD with the penguin commentary. If you've seen the film, you'll know what I mean; if not, you're probably thinking you've slipped through a crack into some weird, alternate universe where penguin commentaries make sense. It's probably the same universe where the Rockies and D'backs fight each other to a 1-1 tie, before combining for 13 runs in the ninth. Er, hang on...

Yeah, so I've really got no idea about what might happen in this game. I was talking to Mason at work about Cruz today; he reckons Cruz is just too small to be a starting pitcher, which is an interesting angle. We're going for the sweep, which would be a nice way to end the road trip, and take us into the All-Star break on a good note. However, I've a feeling our luck, that has so far kept us just ahead of the curve in Colorado, will run out, and we could be in for a whipping. But who can say?
