Friday Morning Rockpile:

Clint Hurdle put it best after last night's win:

"Baseball doesn't have a clock; that's what makes it beautiful," manager Clint Hurdle said. "But I think this game is really going to help us. We have some guys who are really grinding and been taking this too seriously, and we ended up having some fun with this."

Baseball has to have a winner. It's even better when your team wins it. Troy agrees:

"It was tough out there — it was hard to keep your eyes open in those last at-bats," Tulowitzki said. "But if you're going to play this long you might as well win it."

Hopefully Hurdle and Tulo are on to something:

"You never know when it's going to start. It's gotta start somewhere," Rockies manager Clint Hurdle said of the struggling Tulowitzki. "So that's a good a place as any for him. [...] So he's got to feel good."

He'll want to feel good as the team moves on to Houston for the weekend. We'll get to see our old buddy Kazuo Matsui play for the first time tonight in an Astros uniform as he comes off the DL for anal fissure.

Forbes' annual "The Business of Baseball" rankings came out. The Rockies had the greatest 1-yr. value change at 17%. Overall the team comes in at 21. If you want to  compare this year's rankings to last year, here's the link to 2007's. Tracy Ringolsby has some thoughts on this rankings for the Rockies.
