Lineup Card: Rockies vs Giants

Here's to hoping the four game winning streak has just as much to do with the Rockies improving as it does with the Cubs mailing in their season.  

After watching the Cubs allow 18 runs and 26 hits to the hapless Brewers last night, I must admit I'm not exactly sure how optimistic I am about that.  That Cubs team really seriously blows.

A good performance (and win) tonight would go a long way towards squashing my doubts though.

Pre-Game Notes

-- The Rockies have claimed 1B/3B off waivers from the Cleveland Indians.  Steve Foster has more on Hodges and an update on Matt Daley over at Inside The Rockies.

-- Todd Helton activated from the 15-Day DL.  Jonathan Herrera optioned back to AAA Colorado Springs.  That means Melvin Mora is the backup everything again.  Barmes and Tulowitzki play everyday until they run out of gas for the stretch run.  Weeeee!
