The good news for Jhoulys Chacin is that he still has a shot at a long and glorious career with the Rockies should his right handed version of a Johan Santana-like changeup ever reach the majors. The bad news is that for this week, he's the reason we're at the bottom of the standings, the reason that anything and everything is going wrong with the club, the reason we're all moaning, because his was the name that was drawn to be our Official Purple Row Scapegoat of the Week.

So again: anything bad tonight, this week, IT'S ALL CHACIN'S FAULT. Got it? Serves him right for having a name that nobody can figure out. Hopefully the rest of the team can do enough good to overcome our #4 prospect's multitude of failings.

Go Rockies!
