Baseball Toaster Bad Altitude

I saw that coming from a mile away. What Rockies fan didn't? Of course our All-Star closer is going to give up (another) walk-off homer in the bottom of the ninth to once again snatch defeat from the jaws of victory and extend Colorado's losing streak to eight.

If the Rockies were a team with even the vaguest hint of a lasting following, this story would be front-page news nationwide. Honestly, when has this happened before? The Rockies' TV guys are so flabbergasted they've lost the ability to feign surprise. They look even more like replicants than usual tonight.

Uhhh... how about those Knicks? Zack Randolph and Eddy Curry are going to play lockdown defense, right?

I'm in shock.

Uh ... yeah ... what Kels said.

Oh and the radio guys are every bit as flabbergasted as the TV guys.

At least Troy Tulowitzki didn't have a potential game-winning homer made redundant.

I had a dream last night that Brian Fuentes pulled off his face, Mission Impossible-style, revealing that he was really Shawn Chacon.

And if that's any indication, Hurdle is going to stick with Fuentes for ages, wrecking save after save.
