Lineup Card: Rockies @ Cardinals

Three to go.  I wish I could say I'm sad the Rockies season is ending, but the team itself doesn't too interested in making the games worthwhile viewing, so whatever.  Three games to go.  

Rockies Lineup (83-76)
  1. CF  Fowler
  2. 2B  Herrera
  3. RF  Gonzalez
  4. SS  Tulowitzki
  5. 1B  Helton
  6. 3B  Mora
  7. LF  Spilborghs
  8. C    Olivo
  9. P     De La Rosa
I like Jonathan Herrera very much, but I thought we were giving Chris Nelson a look-see here.  Why not, I don't know, let him play 2-3 days in a row, get in a rhythm, perhaps establish something close to a routine.  How are we getting a good read on him when we aren't affording a real opportunity?

Cardinals Lineup (83-76)
  1. 2B  Greene
  2. CF  Mather
  3. 1B  Pujols
  4. LF  Holliday
  5. RF  Craig 
  6. 3B  Feliz
  7. C    Pagnozzi
  8. SS  Ryan
  9. P    Westbrook
