Game #161: Rusch vs Webb

New, comments

Rusch last started for the Rockies on August 14, against the Diamondbacks, and he gave up Chris Burke's first homerun of the season. The next day against his former team in Houston, Burke hit another shot, but he's had a grand total of two hits since and just eight extra base hits all year. What this all means is that Burke isn't any good, and ergo ipso facto, any pitcher giving up HR's to Burke also isn't any good. The next step in the logic would dictate that since the Rockies have no pitcher better than Rusch to start tonight.., well we see why we're sitting home this year. I don't know what the Snakes' excuse is, this Webb guy's supposedly pretty good, some say he's in line for some hardware this offseason.
