Sorry for the complete lack of posts since yesterday afternoon. Between the family picnic, meeting up with some friends, and flying back to NC, I really haven't had much time to be near a computer until right around now. Luckily, watching the Pirates would've done a nice job of ruining what was a fun weekend for me, so I don't feel too bad about having missed the games over the past two days. There's nothing that spoils a decent first half like a four-game losing streak to a bad team to start the second half. The Rockies stomped Yoslan Herrera yesterday and they kicked the ever-living crap out of Zach Duke today and suddenly we're 10 games below .500 and buried in last place in the Central with the third worst run differential in the National League. The sad thing is, I have a sinking feeling that things aren't going to get a whole lot better in the immediate future.
