Baseball Toaster Bad Altitude
Not So Good

The Rockies have now lost seven games in a row. Their bullpen is suddenly a disaster. They've fallen rapidly from a tie for first to sole possession of last place, their freefall only pausing for the All-Star Break.

And I'm in another state, only checking boxscores sporadically. Good timing on my part. If they're still in a death spiral by the time I return to Colorado on Wednesday, I guess I'll have to address things more thoroughly. I don't have to tell you, I imagine, that my hope is that they'll turn things around with their series in Pittsburgh and I'll be spared that unpleasantness.

Listening to Ron Santo on WGN during the Mets' 11-run inning in Chicago tonight, now that was a rare joy.

I heard the tail end of that 11-run inning as well. I only would have been mildly shocked if Pat Hughes announced after the next commercial break that Ron had hung himself in the booth. He just sounded devastated.

At one point Ronnie didn't say anything for several minutes and I suspected the worst. It turned out that he went to get a Diet Rite. I found that also hilarious for some reason. Who drinks Diet Rite?
