Saturday Morning Rockpile:

Record before Jhoulys Chacin became the OPRSW: 20-37

Record since Jhoulys Chacin became the OPRSW: 3-1

Concidence? I think not. Chacin may have had yet another quality start last night, but he's been terrible to the Rockies.BOO CHACIN!


So what was the best part about winning last night? Finally backing up one of U-ball's decent starts? Brad Hawpe showing some punch? Garrett Atkins coming through in a high leverage close and late situation? Jeff Baker continuing his good run? Staying just ten games behind Arizona? I don't know, there's so much that happened on the offensive side of things last night that we've been lacking in all season that it's difficult to choose what was most important. It would have been nice if some of them happened before the eighth inning, but I'm not going to look a gift horse in the mouth on this.

If we are to rally this year, something which remains a dubious proposition at best still, we'll need everything we had last night more consistently going forward. At the very least, though, with Todd Helton's surge and Hawpe's return, it looks like we're starting to get some big run producing hits by our left handers finally. Add that to what may be another quality bat off the bench against LOOGY's in Baker, and the recipe for success seems to be coming together..
