Greetings from Tucson! Today the Rockies beat the Dbacks 8-3. As everyone probably knows, Todd Helton, Carlos Gonzalez and Christian Colonel homered for the Rox, and Jhoulys Chacin was impressive--except for the 3rd inning. I think a fielding error kind of went to his head, but he didn't give up the lead and he did well to bear down and strike out Punk Jupton.
Poseidon's Fist, mkorpal, DbacksSkins and I were at the game.

As Helton stepped for his first AB, DbacksSkins snickered when I said 2009 would be a Renaissance season for Todd. Todd put his money where my mouth is by blasting a 2 run homer.
Perhaps best of all, I got autographs from Clint Hurdle, Don Baylor and Todd Helton before the game. See all of the pictures from today here (including a few of my folks--we went golfing at Randolph North after the game). Captions will be added on an ad hoc basis.
Tomorrow, Poseidon's Fist, mkorpal and I will be at the game against the Kyle Davies and the Royals at Hi Corbett. Until then, GO ROCKIES!!!
