Probable Starters
Game 1 @ Philly: Ubaldo Jiminez (15-12, 3.47 ERA) vs. Cliff Lee (14-13, 3.22 ERA)
Game 2 @ Philly: Aaron Cook (11-6, 4.16 ERA) vs. Cole Hamels (10-11, 4.32 ERA)
Jason Hammel is slated to go for the Rockies in Game 3, and Jason Marquis is the probable starter for Game 4.

Jorge De La Rosa will be out for the first round as well due to an injured left groin.
http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/playoffs/2009/news/story?id=4537155

I think the Phils will take this one in four games. The Rockies are really going to miss De La Rosa in this series.

Phillies have to much power and speed in that lineup. If Cliff Lee and Hamels get going, this series will be done quick.

The Rockies offense has to show up big time to take this series.

I think the Phils win in a sweep.

Phillies have a superior offensive team and a couple of good starters, but I hope the Rockies win this series. No reason really other than Philadelphia just won a WS and the Rockies are still relative playoff noobs even though they've made it 2 out of the last 3 years. Jose didn't work here this year, but maybe he can contribute to Colorado out of the pen.

He's been pitching out of the pen for a while now.

Right. But that didn't necessarily mean he'd make the playoff roster. He missed some time after that leg injury he had on the bases during one of his first starts in September, so it wasn't really a given he'd be on the roster. Makes sense though given their other pitching injuries right now though.

I'll tell ya, even though he is losing 4-0, Ubaldo Jimeniez (sp) looks really really good. He has a 2 seam FB at 95, a 4 seam that hits 99, and a plus change and curve. Filthy.

That ball was crushed by Howard, but the LF got turned around on the play, and it was a catch-able ball. Jimenez has looked pretty good though.

I would be shocked if there is a ballgame in Denver on Saturday. Current forecast is a high of 36 (32 by game time) with a 70% chance of precipitation (snow in the AM changing to rain). I sounds like the front is going to be fairly big and don't know how the field would be playable if it's raining all day. I hope they start looking at bumping the games (yeah, I said games, Rox are taking it to at least 4) sooner rather than later.

Granted, if there is a game, I'll so be there. I need to go find a purple winter coat! :tongue:

Contreras made it into the game. Looks like he gave up a couple of hits and let in two of Cook's baserunners.

Got a nice DP to end the inning and prevent further damage.

4-3 Rox right now and they are threatening again.

Rockies even the series at one game apiece, but it didn't come without some drama in the 9th.

The game time temperature for Saturday's game in Colorado is expected to be 34 degrees, with a 70% chance of snow showers. Yikes.:o::o:

I swear every weather forecast since I posted that, the number keeps going down. It's now supposed to be a high of 33 on Saturday so it'll maybe be 30 by game time??? :shocked:

Wish I would have seen the game today. We nervous as hell in front on my computer in the bottom of the ninth keeping track via Gameday. Glad for the big W though! :bandance:

This is now getting ridiculous. Game time temp is to be in the low 20's. The players, afraid of seeming wussy I suppose, are all scoffing at it. I wish one of them would have the balls to say that this type of weather could be potential for injuries! This game has not been called and it will be a game time decision. Why? Seriously, why wait??? Maybe the temperature might be in the mid-20's instead of the low-20's. Well then game on! ****ing Bud Selig! :angry:

Seriously, who gives a **** if the players, or even the fans, are cold. If someone goes down in the playoffs because the game could be postponed one day (this is a seven-day series - they have time) and have considerably better temperatures and no precipitation but wasn't and now either team is not the best team they could be for the playoffs because of injuries, what the **** is the point?!?!?! :angry:

Sorry for my rant but this is frustrating. I'm not happy that no one is acknowledging the fact that this has gone from playing while uncomfortable to playing and risking injury.

I think it all hinges on how much it will snow. If there's a considerable amount of snow, they'll postpone it. If it doesn't snow that much, then I don't know why they wouldn't play. It's just cold weather. If college baseball teams can play in cold weather in February/March, then MLB players certainly can do it in October.

At 20 degrees, now matter how much you're moving, you are not staying warm. This isn't football; you're running down the field if you're not on the sideline in front of the heater. I very much disagree with you. However, I agree to disagree cause I'm guessing our opinions will never merge on that one.

I will admit I'm happy for a very selfish reason too - I had no idea how I was going to get the rest of my house cleaned, work out, get ready and make food before people started arriving at my house at 6. :D:

Not a great parallel. First, while I don't follow college ball much, I'm not sure how much those teams really do play in cold weather. For example, I just checked Illinois's schedule for this past season, and saw the Illini played their first nine games in Florida, Texas, and Louisiana. Second, colleges play their championship games as the weather improves, not as it worsens. College playoffs, of course, aren't until May and June, and the Illini didn't even open Big 10 play until late March.

It's not going to happen, but the season really should be shortened, or maybe there should be fewer off-days both within and between series. For example, if the Yanks and Angels both win tomorrow, why wait until Friday to start the ALCS?. Good grief, the World Series this year won't start until October 28th? To my knowledge, that's later than all but two World Series (last year and 2001) ended.

I have been to many UC baseball games in March when the weather was absolutely brutal. Most of your northern teams begin the season with a baseball tournament in Florida, but they begin their home slate in early March. I was wrong for including February.

However, I don't see what the big deal is with cold weather when there is no snow, but that's just me. People act like baseball has never been played in frigid temperatures before. It's all moot at this point anyway.

ISU always schedules tournaments in Florida, Texas, Tennessee, or the like in February and early March. They usually start their home schedule around the 3rd week of March.

It's played in the cold many spring nights every year at the Cel. I'm just not sure why MLB wants to put its showcase event at such risk for bad weather. If it's all for television anyway, maybe it ought to be in a TV studio for baseball (like the Super Bowl is in a TV studio for football?). On early November nights, I doubt that's outdoors in Denver (or Chicago or New York).

Sunday day-night doubleheaders would shorten the season to the point where it starts in mid-April, and ends in mid-September. However, the players' union would throw a fit, and I couldn't really blame them.

Just to be picky, even without the WBC, this might still have happened. Without it this would be the week of the NLCS which the Rockies might be playing in.

It's in Colorado so it's an 8 PM start locally. TBS is running all of the ALDS games and with 4 originally scheduled one of them had to start late. All the other games were in the central or eastern time zones.

Can't I complain without logic being brought into the arguement? :tongue: But there weren't 4 originally scheduled, right? Only three. When they moved this game from Saturday, they already knew the St. Louis/LA series was over.

Couldn't they have started the game around 5 eastern? That's more like a regular Sunday afternoon start locally. The LA/Boston game will already be over, and it would probably only overlap the Yankees/Twins for an hour.

However, I see that the Broncos are hosting New England today, and it's a 4:15 est start. I think that might have more to do with it.

True, however, looks to me like he's completely been made to abandon the sidearm delivery (good thing in my book) and he does seem to be throwing with more velocity. I've seen him hit 94-95 in more than one stadium since joining the Rockies, so I don't think it's a radar gun effect.

As opposed to those pitchers who thrive when they walk batters? :neener:

No surprise, though. Jose seems to only have two modes, "Absolutely Unhittable" or "Completely Absymal." Can't seem to find the "Serviceable" setting any more, one thing goes wrong and it triggers an avalanche.

I don't dislike Coors Field, but to me it seems very, very similar in seating structure to Turner Field [which is odd, because DIA's layout is nearly identical to Hartsfield-Jackson, as well], and somewhat similar to AT&T Park, Nats Park and Camden Yards. Only difference is, you can't see "purple mountain majesties" from those other locales [though I like the parks in Baltimore and San Francisco much more]. :cool:

If Lidge can close this out, you have to think he's feeling pretty good about himself with two saves in a row. On the otherhand, last night's save was shakey. If he blows this tonight, Manuel probably can't count on him for the rest of the postseason if they advance.

"ever dance with the devil in the pale moon light?"

Charlie Manuel answers the question.

A couple of the umps in the Yankees series would have called that a swing.

I'd hate to be Tulo and have that swing end our season.

What a tough 2 days for Tulowitzki. He had 2 chances to be a hero at the end.

Glad to see Giambi lose too.

The Phillies have so many good players - good athletes who are also good hitters. Their hitters don't, oh my gosh, pull everything. Watching them demonstrates to me how much more talent the Sox need to contend: a lot.
My mild rooting interest won all 4 of the first round series.

Was hoping the Rockies would pull through. Oh well. Go Dodgers!

The downside - the Rockies are no longer in the postseason. The upside - they were the only eliminated team that got a win and I will be saving significant amounts of money not paying for more postseason tickets. My emotions went from excited to even to low to high to way high to low to way low.

Thanks for the amazing season Rockies. In May, there was no way I thought they were going to do anything this season. Thank you for proving me wrong.

This only leaves the Dodgers. Come on Jim, get that ring!

The week Nathan, Papelbum, and now Street all blew 2 run saves in the 9th inning.

I noted the same thing with my son earlier. This has been the playoffs for the premier closers to choke on it big time.
