Yesterday was a lousy game all the way around. Rain halted play twice, forcing Jorge De La Rosa out despite not giving up a hit. The Rockies left a battalion of runners on base, so this one should have been a rain-shortened victory, not a reschedule. Play will resume when the Giants return to Coors in September, in what could be a crucial series.
Thomas Harding's round up of news and notes about the Rockies. CarGo has yet another finger issue, Tulo's playing weight is slightly lower, and Tyler Chatwood will soon start a throwing program.
I couldn't believe I was hearing that when Tulo blooped that hit into right field. I'm glad they have a sense of humor about the whole thing.

This has been a bizarre saga alright. Apparently the ball club frowns on biting off chunks of a teammate's ear.
