Peaks & Valleys - July 27 - Football Is In The Air

Now that the Rockies' current road trip has reached its end, it's time for the Rockies to salve their wounds, return to Coors Field, and learn how to win again. At the same time, we're also preparing for a new Broncos season as rookies report to camp tomorrow. The dead period of summer sports is about to come to an end.

Peaks

↵

-Not Denver sports-related, but Tampa Bay's Matt Garza threw the first no-hitter in Rays' history.

↵

-The Broncos signed WR Eric Decker to his initial deal. Only three players (Thomas, Tebow, Beadles) remain unsigned.

↵

-The Rockies' road trip ends, and Troy Tulowitzki returns!

↵

Valleys

↵

-It's fitting that the Rockies ended their road trip (2-9 record) with the bases loaded and a ground out to the pitcher to capture that ninth loss.

↵

-Brad Lidge looked to be in the process of having a meltdown, especially with that Seth Smith two-run home run, but the Rockies couldn't make him reach critical mass.

On Tap For Today
