We're entering the final stretch before the start of training camp. The Starting Five heavily reflects that as the Broncos articles are starting to pour in these days. Finally, Peaks & Valleys will have more than just a short recap of the Rockies game every morning. For now, here's some of the good and the bad from yesterday.
-Troy Renck tweeted that Troy Tulowitzki will likely be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday for the start of the Pirates series.â†µ
-OK, so it may be wrong to do this because he's on the Phillies, but a chapeau for Vance Worley who made his major league debut yesterday and struck out two in the ninth inning.â†µ
-Troy Renck has two interesting tweets about Ubaldo Jimenez's short outing yesterday here and here. The Cy Young is slipping away unless the ship can be righted immediately. I partially blame the SI cover he was on, because of curses and such. . . .â†µ
-And how does this team only score a run off of Kyle Kendrick?â†µ
On Tap For Todayâ†µ
-Jeff Francis will look to repeat his success from last Tuesday when the Rockies beat the Marlins 10-0. Francis went seven innings, scattered three hits, and struck out seven. J.A. Happ opposes him on the rubber at 11:35 a.m MT.â†µ
-The Colorado Rapids take the pitch at QWEST Field against the Seattle Sounders FC at 8:30 p.m. MTâ†µ
