The Rockies are 2-0 in San Diego. (This is not an April fool’s joke.)
Charlie Blackmon is on fire.
Germán Márquez and Kyle Freeland look good.
In fact, let’s take a minute to appreciate #KyleBeingKyle:
How did Kyle Freeland make this play!?!?— FOX Sports: MLB (@MLBONFOX) April 1, 2023
We’re going to try something a bit different this week and run the daily discussion forum with the game thread. If it doesn’t work, I’ll do something else next weekend, but we’re all just trying to find our way this early in the season. Also, I’ll update this post throughout the day as lineups, etc. become available.
Things to discuss? The Isotopes are hitting some bombs! The Rockies’ bullpen is okay? Elehuris Montero and Ezequiel Tovar are doing just fine. The pitch clock is amazing.
Tonight, José Ureña will take the mound against Michael Wacha as the Rockies try to win their series with the Padres.

Can the Rockies remain undefeated?
We’ll know soon enough.
The Padres won 8-4 — which makes sense given that Rockies pitchers walked eight batters.
However, CJ Cron had his third home run, so that’s good.

Tomorrow, the Rockies will try to win the series as Austin Gomber takes the mound. Game time is 2:10 PM MDT.
