Much as he was last year, Aaron Cook is being counted on by the Colorado Rockies to be their stopper, the guy that cancels out the negative vibes from a losing streak with a strong pitching performance. With Clint Hurdle's job potentially in the balance as well as the Rockies' (11-18) three game losing streak, Cook (1-1) will take the mound today against the Marlins' (17-14) Chris Volstad (2-1).

To have any hope at salvaging a winning homestand the Rockies need a win this afternoon and they need to do it emphatically. That means the sticks have to get going while Cook performs like the stopper he's being asked to be.
