Rockies Lineup

1. Seth Smith (L) RF
2. Jonathan Herrera (S) 2B
3. Carlos Gonzalez (L) LF
4. Troy Tulowitzki (R) SS
5. Todd Helton (L) 1B
6. Ty Wigginton (R) 3B
7. Chris Iannetta (R) C
8. Dexter Fowler (S) CF
9. Juan Nicasio (R) P

I still don't entirely understand this whole "Seth Smith leadoff" thing. Maybe it's just me, but why would they not just put Herrera on top?

Rooting for Nicasio vs a weak lineup - with the exception of Aubrey "Jason Giambi Did It first" Huff, who recently has found himself on the pleasant end of a hot streak - you know, the one where HE'S on the hot streak, not just facing pitchers on a tear. That said, I don't know what situation would have me NOT rooting for Nicasio, but I guess I'm more rooting for his "staying power".

Nicasio will be facing the following lineup:

1. Andres Torres (S) CF
2. Emmanuel Burriss (S) 3B
3. Freddy Sanchez (R) 2B
4. Aubrey Huff (L) 1B
5. Nate Schierholtz (L) RF
6. Cody Ross (R) LF
7. Brandon Crawford (L) SS
8. Eli Whiteside (R) C
9. Matt Cain (R) P
