You know, maybe this is one amazingly brilliant plan the guys cooked up during the offseason. Maybe someone read Shakespeare's Henry IV, Part I and thought it would be a good idea to set the bar really low during the start of the season, just as Prince Hal set the bar low for himself before becoming king. So, when the time is right, the Rockies will break out of this malaise and become a great team, just as Prince Hal became Henry V and led the English to victory over the French at Agincourt. Does that make any sense? It did in the dream I had last night. And Tulo gave the equivalent of Henry V's St. Crispin's Day speech in Henry V. Why am I dreaming about the Rockies taking part in Shakespeare's plays?
Seems there is a problem with Luis Vizcaino. He was placed on the 15-day DL last night with a shoulder injury after he experienced pain there while warming up in the seventh inning. Ryan Speier will take his place in the 'pen.
Look for me to beg for a win in today's game thread in a few hours.
