Complete Coverage >


Today's game is a big one.  A win today would mean a lot - that either Aaron Cook had his first great start or the lineup brutalized Billingsley.  It would cleanse our palette from the bitter taste from yesterday's bullpen meltdown.  It would mean halting LA's six game winning streak.  It would give Colorado a very legitimate chance to steal a series on the road against a hot Los Angeles team, as the Rockies have a significant advantage in tomorrow's pitching match-up - and a win there means just one series loss in four so far.  This is the kind of game you want your Opening Day starter to win.

If you are tired of George Frazier, the game is on Fox.
