Lineup Card: Rockies vs Giants

Yeah... these aren't the Cubs anymore.  This is a Giant team that is on fire right now, really making a strong push to the playoffs.  I don't know if the Rockies can catch them regardless, but I know they can't if they don't somehow win this game today.  

Rockies Lineup (55-51)
  1. LF  Spilborghs
  2. 1B  Helton
  3. CF  Gonzalez
  4. SS  Tulowitzki
  5. 3B  Mora
  6. C   Iannetta
  7. RF  Hawpe
  8. 2B  Barmes
  9. P    Jimenez
Giants Lineup (62-45)
  1. CF  Torres
  2. 2B  Sanchez
  3. RF  Huff
  4. C    Posey
  5. LF  Burrell
  6. 1B  Ishikawa
  7. 3B  Sandoval
  8. SS  Renteria
  9. P    Bumgarner
Damn these Giants for finding offense!  

Andres Torres?  Where did he come from?  

Buster Posey... yeah, OK, he's good.  We saw that coming.  

I'll never forgive the Rays for simply allowing Burrell to walk so San Fran could scoop him up.  

And Ishikawa was barely in the Giants plan until he hit that Grand Slam off Jimenez last trip to Denver.  Now he's playing every stinkin' day.  

Thank God they aren't getting anything from the Panda, or this thing would really be over.
