Sunday Morning Rockpile: They'll Be Coming as Soon as the Season Ends

With the loss and Cook not likely to comeback this week, and maybe not even this season, last night was just super, no? The three pitchers the team might call up on Tuesday (Morillo, Serafini, Speier) could have helped last night. Well, maybe not Serafini as he hasn't pitched in the majors since 2003.

Yes, the Rockies can definitely take today's match up against Webb, who's allowed five runs in each of his four starts against the club this season. If they don't, well, scoreboard watching still shouldn't be a part of their playoff aspirations. The chances of the team going on a 22-5 run to end the season is slightly more likely to occur than Clay Buchholz throwing another no-hiter in his next outing, but Francona's not sure when Buchholz will have his next start. A lot of things have more of a chance to happen than back-to-back no-hitters. Even if the Rockies do somehow pull off what would be extraordinary, would anyone in the West notice with the "West Coast malaise" that's prevalent these days?

Update [2007-9-2 15:42:58 by Russ]: As malakian noted in the comments, Cook's season is over and Taylor Buchholz has inflammation in his pitching elbow. Things can't get any worse, right?
