oh, how the mighty have fallen. The Rockies were World Beaters and now they look like "also-ran"s. The San Fransisco Giants, World Champs, have shelled 'em. Five first-inning runs in the first game. Four in the second game. The Rockies are oh-fer-two in the series with one game to play.
This is exactly what the Rockies needed. To be dragged back to earth.
This team doesn't typically start fast. But, in 2011 they have. They were flat-out rollin' coming into the Giants series. It's was time for a reality check.
The baseball season is long. Very, very long. Even good teams lose. The Rockies are a good team. Very, very good.
