OK, this thing with the strikeouts is getting a little silly. 11 strikeouts against Miguel Batista? Why? I didn't catch most of this game because I had band practice, but when I flipped on the radio in the car during a break I was just in time to hear Matt Holliday striking out with two men on. Holliday had a very good chance to be the subject of a long nasty post, but he semi-redeemed himself by hitting a homer (the Rockies' first of the year) long after the outcome of the game was settled.
Jeff Francis looked awful, Sun-Woo Kim far worse. What's frustrating about being a Rockies fan is that I remember acutely these guys being money for us, and I guess I'm blocking out the fact that one is 25 going on 16 and the other was released by the Nationals last year. Well, it's only one loss. The winnable game on Wednesday is the one that's really going to continue bugging me.
