Still scheduled to make his next start later this week, Jason Hirsh will remain in the rotation for now. As the article's title suggests, Hirsh will have all eyes on him this Wednesday against Carlos Zambrano and the Cubs. If he doesn't get on track again, might we see a change shortly after that game ends?
Bill Madden of the New York Daily News wants to find a parallel between the Rockies and Yankees, but the answers he gets don't.
Fair enough. But if that was the answer, then Madden obviously wouldn't be writing this piece.
Well, would anyone else say that Helton is "doing his regular thing in the cleanup spot?" Helton's doing his new thing and the burden of the offense is no longer on him. And that's a positive. If this season is any indication, the team is moving out of the shadows of its past players.
Or, you know, the starting pitching and bullpen don't let a team such as the Blue Jays come alive with the bats. Or run into bad umpiring. It's just not one thing that needs to be consistent for the Rockies to be real.
