Peaks & Valleys - June 29 - Move, Move, Move!

New, 7 comments

Trade talks and summer call ups were all the rage yesterday. Let's take a closer look at what changed in the Denver sports scene:

↵

Peaks

↵

- Rockies OF Dexter Fowler was called up from Triple-A after absolutely crushing the ball in a 27-game stint down there. The "Center Fielder Of The Future" displayed hitting excellence, especially from the left side, and the organization could no longer afford to keep his hot bat in Colorado Springs.

↵

- Jonathan Herrera keeps on hitting from the lead-off spot, extending his hitting streak to 9 10 games. Honestly, I have no idea how he's doing it either.

↵

- Huston Street came to pitch the ninth inning in a must-win game. While it wasn't pretty, it was certainly effective. The Closer is back!

↵

Level Ground

↵

- Colorado Avalanche trade a fourth round pick in the 2012 Draft for a left wing Phoenix didn't want anymore. Even though this worked out at the trading deadline with Peter Mueller, there is little hope that Winnik will be the answer to any organizational question that doesn't involve Lake Erie. A lateral move that doesn't really gain or lose ground.

Valleys

↵

- Kenyon Martin's Knee. The story of K-Mart's NBA career continues with yet another surgery. The question now becomes, who can the Nuggets trade this $16 million injury problem for with free agency looming right around the corner?

↵

- Ubaldo Jimenez. Tough break, U-Ball. You no-hit the Padres through five innings last night and STILL end up here. Undeserved? Sure. He gets the major league-leading 14th win, but is now tied for the ERA lead with Florida's young stud, Josh Johnson. But the way Jimenez started out the season, there was no place to go but down.
