    LA disappoints me, yes. But as a former Denverite, no team can step on their johnson better than the Rox. I would not be surprised to see those purple pricks flop worse than Vlade Divac.

    so you’re saying we’ll lose 4-2 instead of 14-2?

    Somehow we'll struggle to score 2 runs a game in Coors.

    Can't take advantage of Coors if you swing and miss at every pitch...

    Watch Roberts call for bunt after bunt after bunt in Coors Field of all places.

    The Giants had the Rockies beat in every game of that series before the Rockies did the exact same thing they did to us. Late game Coors Field heroics. We are getting into that time of year where the ball flies here due to things really drying out and magically, they just happen to fly a whole lot farther in the bottom halves of the 7th inning and beyond. Fully prepared for 3 late inning come from behind "spectacular" home team wins and the Dodgers players making October vacation plans by Monday.

    They soak their balls in Coors light during the first part of the game and bring them out for the 7th inning.
    Soaking your balls is probably all Coors light is good for anyway.

    There have been numerous complaints from teams over the years that the balls seem to get a different feel as the game progresses when the Rockies are losing. I’ve also heard from folks with ties to the club that there is a spot in the humidor that they keep certain balls as well. That could very much all be bullshit, but it would not shock me one bit if we eventually find out that they fuck with the balls.

    They fuck with the balls.
    Thats why I made the coors light joke.
    They have home cooking going on for sure.
    We should put the balls in a freezer with dry ice for the 9th inning, see if our leads hold up.

    I taught Dan O'Dowd's kid Chris years ago. He tossed me some good tickets when he was GM, but yeah ... they tweaked the humidor plenty. A drunken Walt Weiss (his kid also one of my students then) flat out told me that "that humidor is bullshit - it's nothing but a case to put the balls in. Does nothing whatsoever."

    So much of that park is really beautiful, but that team will never cut it as a champion. Thye came damned close in 2007, but they also played out of their asses that year in mid-August & September. People forget - they flat out couldn't lose for about five weeks. But then they cooled, and Boston handled them in four that October.

    Humidor or not, LA has no excuses. They'd already have 82 wins or more if they didn't gargle balls earlier this year in games they had well in hand.
