In Patrick Saunders's piece on the game, Jason Hammel believes the weekend may be the start of something good for the Rockies.
Yorvit Torrealba is ready to catch for an extended period of time, but take a look at his response on why Paul Phillips was recalled over Sal Fasano:
Asked why Phillips was promoted instead of popular veteran Sal Fasano, Hurdle said, "That was the organization's decision last night, and I trust them completely."
So, in other words, Hurdle doesn't have an answer. When he learned that Phillips was recalled, I wonder if the conversation went something like this:
Dan O'Dowd (on the phone): Clint, we're promoting Paul Phillips to the roster.
Clint Hurdle: Cool. Uh, why?
Dan O'Dowd: Do yout trust us?
Clint Hurdle: Completely.
Dan O'Dowd: Then no explanation is needed.
Today being Memorial Day, let us thank everyone who is serving and has served in our armed forces. If you are currently serving, let us know.
