11 game winning streak under Jim Tracy. Good enough to be 4.5 games better than us at this point. We're 2 games back of the Padres, in last place. Luckily the Padres are horrific on the road...but yet they still have a 2-1 record at Chase. Crying or Very sad

That's because the ballpark formerly known as BOB is also the National League's rehabilitation center for teams who have trouble winning on the road... Wink

Colorado Rockies on a tear under Jim Tracy

DENVER (AP) - When Jim Tracy replaced Clint Hurdle as Colorado's manager, GM Dan O'Dowd said he wasn't expecting miracles.

The Rockies were 10 games under .500 and threatening to become irrelevant before June even started.

Surprise!

The Rockies won 18 of their first 23 under their new skipper, including an incredible 16-1 streak heading into a West Coast trip starting in Anaheim on Monday night.

Tracy likes to deflect credit, but there's no hiding that it took him half as many games to win 18 times as it took Hurdle, who was fired with the Rockies in last place in the NL West at 18-28.

"I just asked them to play the game correctly. And I've asked them to play the game unselfishly, and I've asked them to get a little bit more aggressive offensively," Tracy said. "And we've done an unbelievable job of that."

Giants sweep Rockies, tie wild-card race

Quote:
SAN FRANCISCO (AP)—Edgar Renteria spoke up in a team meeting Tuesday and told his San Francisco teammates to forget a heartbreaking 14-inning loss at Colorado the night before that ended on a grand slam.

“I told them, ‘Play ball,”’ Renteria recalled.

He’s sure doing so, and is a key reason the Giants are right back in the thick of things alongside the Rockies.

Renteria hit a go-ahead grand slam in the seventh inning and the Giants pulled even in the NL wild-card race with Colorado, beating the Rockies 9-5 Sunday for a three-game sweep.

The Giants moved into a tie in the NL West with Colorado, six games behind first-place Los Angeles. The Rockies lost their season-high fifth in a row.

San Francisco swept the Rockies at home for the first time since April 8-10, 2005. Last week, the Giants lost three of four at Coors Field despite leading every game.

Rockies add Giambi, Contreras will start Saturday

Quote:
DENVER (AP)—Jason Giambi insists he won’t mind being a backup in a new league.

“There is no small role when you’re in a pennant race,” the former AL MVP said Tuesday after the Colorado Rockies added him to their roster.

Giambi, who has never played in the National League, gives the Rockies another veteran leader in the clubhouse, a powerful pinch-hitter and an accomplished first baseman who can spell Todd Helton(notes) at times.

Manager Jim Tracy has tried to give Helton regular rests this season so he doesn’t have a recurrence of the back problems that plagued him last season. Before Giambi’s arrival, that always meant juggling his lineup and the defense.
---
Contreras and Giambi played together with the New York Yankees.

“He had a great year for us in New York, he had some great years in Chicago. He can come in here and he might get a breath of fresh air,” Giambi said. “He can be unbelievable. He’s got phenomenal stuff.”

Tracy said he’ll start Contreras on Saturday night against Arizona.

Rockies closer Huston Street has biceps tendinitis

Quote:
DENVER (AP) - Colorado Rockies closer Huston Street has biceps tendinitis in his pitching arm and is being shut down for an undetermined amount of time.

Street said he first felt discomfort Tuesday night when he threw a six-pitch ninth inning against the New York Mets in his first action in a week. He brushed it off as the effects of a weeklong layoff.

He tested out his arm before the game and said it didn't feel any worse. But he couldn't get loose in the bullpen during Colorado's eighth-inning rally, so left-hander Franklin Morales filled in and recorded his first major league save Wednesday night.

Colorado's 5-2 win over the Mets allowed them to stay atop the NL wild-card standings.

Street, who has 33 saves in 34 chances, said he expects to be out a few days but no longer than a week.

Street said he understood manager Jim Tracy's decision to shut him down now rather than risk a longer layoff by letting him try to work through the injury.

ALBUQUERQUE — The Rockies suddenly have become the trendy pick to win the National League West, if not the NL pennant. But if they're going to do it, it will be, at least in the short run, without two key members of their pitching staff.

Closer Huston Street is in Tucson, shut down indefinitely because of lingering inflammation in his right shoulder. And Friday came the shocking news that Jeff Francis, one day after his most impressive outing of the spring, would have to open the season on the 15-day disabled list.

Francis, who missed the entire 2009 season after undergoing surgery to repair a torn labrum, reported to Isotopes Park with pain under his left armpit, one day after shutting out the Chicago Cubs for five

Jorge De La Rosa, 19-4 over his last 26 starts, is going on the disabled list along with starter Jason Hammel. And catcher Chris Iannetta, who was losing playing time and struggling offensively, will be optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Talk is the Rocks might entertain a deal for Oswalt.

That would give them a nice 1-2 punch.

They robbed the Astros once (Jason Jennings deal), might as well do it again.

How are the schools in Colorado? Laughing

Rockies on lookout for second baseman

Quote:
When contenders have weak spots, they naturally pop up in roster talk. Spoke to a major league source tonight who said that the Rockies would have interest in second baseman Kazuo Matsui when he clears waivers. Matsui struggled mightily with the Astros this season, losing his starting job before getting jettisoned Wednesday night.


Quote:
Fox Sports reported Thursday night that the Mets have also contacted the Rockies about second baseman Luis Castillo. The Rockies will be connected to second base rumors as long as Clint Barmes continues to struggle offensively.


At some point, you have to make a move.

But the Rockies aren't at that point yet.

Rockies release Lo Duca
Quote:
Veteran back-stop Paul Lo Duca has been released by Colorado, according to InsideTheRockies.com.

Our View
After signing a minor league deal with Colorado earlier this year, he never made it beyond Triple-A. His career is over.

I went to a Las Vegas 51s vs. Colorado Springs SkySox game last night, and I got to see Kazuo Matsui and Huston Street suck in the Minor Leagues. Huston Street earn a loss and bump his MiLB ERA up to 40.50, while Kazuo Matsui was responsible for an error that eventually lead to a ralley blowing the SkySox out of the game. Matsui made one good play from his knees in the 3rd inning, but he is below the Mendoza line batting in the Minors.

So has Streets stuff disappeared, or is he just shaking out the cobwebs?

Either or. But he looked terrible. Probably the latter.
