The Rockies, demonstrating the kind of remarkably bad timing that's been a franchise hallmark since its inception, have reacted to the worst beating in the local press they've received for years by winning six games in a row for the first time since 2002. The team has been (gasp) fun to watch during the recent run of good fortune but it's still hard to find a case that this streak represents some kind of turnaround or pattern for sustained success. Colorado's serious issues with their bullpen still have not been addressed as during the present run the starters have been persistently going into the seventh, eighth, and ninth. That's nice to see, but hard to expect to continue over a long, long season. Unless the example of the starters somehow galvanizes the bullpen into competence, this still needs to be a season culminating in a lot of firings and trades.
I am going to the game tonight, which I suspect may mean an end to the winning streak. But prove me wrong, boys!
