Sunday Morning Rockpile: Another Day, Another Game?

New, 32 comments

As users Charlie77 and jjmckay noted last night, there's a good chance for some form of precipitation all day today. We'll have to look for updates throughout the day. And the temperatures aren't supposed to be higher than the mid 40s F. Perfect baseball weather.

As we wait for the game, why not read the reaction of Reds fans to the hiring of Dusty Baker, and find out how a fan from Baker's last club thinks things will turn out. Everyone remembers this gem from Baker, right?

"On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me. The problem we have to address more than anything is the home run problem."

The Denver Post has something on the history of religion in baseball and brings up the Rockies. We haven't read enough about that lately, so no link. But, hey, the team has three young Latino pitchers playing important roles this season. Maybe that'll quiet, as one diary recently brought up, the talk about some supposed profiling of who is brought in an signed by the Rockies.

We all know about the profiling the media practices in sports. On today's Sports Reporters, the Rockies were such a great story that they were covered for about two minutes, sandwiched in between the Indians-Red Sox game and Kentucky beating LSU in overtime. Business as usual. Someone should tell those guys that Denver's a baseball town.
