Game 149: Jason Hammel vs. Max Scherzer

New, 812 comments

The playoff situation: Colorado is 2.5 games up on San Francisco, 4 up on Florida, and 4.5 on Atlanta. The Rockies will likely be in with a 8-6 record down the stretch--and this should be one of those wins, putting it simply.

The Rockies throw out their DRAGONSLAYER 2.0, Jason Hammel, against the talented Max Scherzer.

Scherzer is certainly not chopped liver either--his 3.72 FIP, 9.11 K/9, and 3.3 WAR are evidence of that.

The Rockies should win this game. Omar Quintanilla's pixies told me so.

GO ROCKIES!!!
