Game #57: Jason Marquis vs. Brad Thompson

New, comments

My reverse psychology has worked so far. After touting St. Louis as the division leaders and one of the better rotations in the league, we promptly outscore them 28-7 in the first three games. Nice...

What is most impressive about the four game winning streak we are on now is the four pitchers we have put out there. Before the streak, the Rockies were just 11-28 in games started by Aaron Cook, Jorge de la Rosa, Ubaldo Jimenez and Jason Hammel.

So now we go for the rotation sweep with our winningest pitcher. Jason Marquis has figured into every decision so far this season, indicative of a pitcher with polarizing performances. In fact he only has one ESPN game score between 35 and 58. He has a chance to stand alone as the NL's sole 8-game winner after today.

And you know, pull within two games of Roy Halladay. Marquis for Cy Young!
