Monday Rockpile: You didn't think it would be that easy, did you?

Jim Tracy gets to earn his money this week as managing a winning team that's clicking on all cylinders isn't as hard as jump starting one that's fallen into the rut of finding new ways to lose every game. The Rockies had a bad week against stiff competition. They now get a homestand plus a series in PETCO Park against teams that should be easier to beat before getting a rematch against the Giants in AT&T. In the crucial ten games against their main competition in the NL West, the Rockies wound up going 4-6. They now have thirteen non-crucial games where they are presented a golden opportunity for making up lost ground. Troy Renck says 10-3 should be the goal and generously gives the Giants 7-5 over the same period leaving the Rockies up 2.5 games in time for the next series in SF. If we go 10-3, I really think our lead heading into that series will be sweep proof this time.
