Brett Anderson's replica jersey is misspelled on MLB.com

Sure enough, if you click on Anderson's name within the drop-down menu here, you'll see the gaffe on the back of the jersey. Poor, poor Rockies.

Does the blame go all the way to the top?

UPDATE: The Rockies released a statement on this unfortunate incident:

Our sincere apologies to the fans for the misspelling of the Troy Tulowitzki King Soopers jersey that was distributed tonight.

Acknowledging that many fans came to the game for the jersey, rather than disappoint them, we decided to go ahead and hand them out.

We have made plans to reproduce the jersey and fans wishing to exchange will be able to do so at a future date (TBD) in September at Coors Field or the Rockies Dugout Stores. In addition, fans exchanging the jersey will receive a complimentary ticket to a future game in 2014 or 2015.

The complaints come from everywhere now: the comma would like Dick Monfort to stop misusing it, as well.

That's Ownership 101 right there! Shoot, I guess I should start responding that way to my critics: "If content that bad don't read!" "If resume that bad don't hire!" "If watching baseball that bad don't marry!"

Leaked: 10 Months Of The Houston Astros' Internal Trade Talks

+

Deadspin has given the Internet pieces from multiple trade talks the Astros have had with other teams over the last year or so. Included is additional information on how the Dexter Fowler trade came to fruition, including the Rockies' original offer of Fowler and Rafael Ortega for Jarred Cosart and Brandon Barnes -- a deal Colorado fans probably would have liked a bit better than the one that eventually happened. Check it out.

Explaining Jordan Lyles

+

Chris Chrisman has some excellent commentary on Jordan Lyles' strong start over on his blog, Checkswing Roller. A snippet:

"The received wisdom of the Rockies’ front office, pitching coaches, players, fans, writers, and hot dog vendors is that Colorado pitchers thrive when they keep the ball on the ground, and wilt when they don’t.

Whether this is a phenomenon peculiar to the Rockies is debatable. But what’s not debatable is that Jordan Lyles has a 56.3% groundball rate this year. That’s 7% better than his career mark of 49.4%, and 8% better than his GB% last season. In fact, Lyles currently has the 10th-best groundball rate among all MLB starters. And with the Rockies playing outstanding defense, only 2.6% of ground balls hit off of Lyles go for infield hits."

Tyler Chatwood will be placed on 15-day DL

+

It's confirmed. The Rockies won't make an official move until Wednesday, but Chatwood has already been scratched from his start and is expected to be replaced by Jordan Lyles.

Dexter Fowler says he was pressured to play hurt last year

Former Rockies center fielder Dexter Fowler told the Houston Chronicle's Evan Drellich that he was pressured to play hurt last year and that he didn't understand where Dan O'Dowd's comments this past fall about his lack of passion for the game came from. It's a great article with a lot of insight into Dex the person as well as Dex the player.
