Lineup Card: Rockies vs. Astros 6-9-10

Pretty interesting lineup tonight.

Rockies Lineup (30-28)

  • CF Gonzalez
  • 2B Herrera
  • SS Tulowitzki
  • RF Hawpe
  • 1B Mora
  • LF Smith
  • C   Iannetta
  • 3B Stewart
  • P   Cook
I wouldn't necessarily call this a shakeup because you're taking two of your better run producers (Olivo and Barmes) out of the lineup, but it's certainly a new, interesting dynamic with Herrera at the top, Smith further down, Mora at first, and Stewart hitting 8th.  

I really like that Tracy is finding more starts for Mora.  It almost makes me feel like he reads the blog (not really).  Now I just wish he could find a way to get CarGo is a run producing spot.  I hate that so many of his longballs are solo shots when he could be doing so much more damage down the lineup.  And probably seeing better pitches too.  

Astros Lineup (23-36)
  • CF Bourn
  • 2B Keppinger
  • 1B Berkman 
  • LF Lee
  • RF Pence
  • 3B Feliz
  • C  Quintero
  • SS Manzella
  • P   Paulino
