Labor Day weekend is always a big fantasy football weekend for yours truly. This year is no different. Big draft on Sunday, which prevented me from viewing Sunday's game. Another big draft on Monday that will likely keep me from viewing the afternoon game with Arizona.
Hey, maybe if the Rockies had given me a reason to rearrange my priorties, I would have. But since they haven't, I'm fine putting them on the backburner for a couple days.
Padres 7, Rockies 2 (boxscore)
Looks like I didn't miss much.
Just glancing over the boxscore it would appear as though Matt Lindstrom struggled based on his line. But none of the three runs were earned, so apparently Mark Ellis's first error as a Rockie was a costly one.
It looks like Carlos Gonzalez was overmatched by Mat Latos. That's surprising. It also looks like Kevin Kouzmanoff was overmatched by Latos. That's far less surprising.
Dexter Fowler had three more hits (half the Rockies total)? My God. He's almost as hot with the bat now as Rafael Betancourt's been in the bullpen for the past two months. Scorching hot.
Those are my quick thoughts based on little.
For thorough recaps, check out my favorite Rockies blogs from around the internets...
The last time a Rockies two-game Sunday winning streak ended, the infamous 17-game Sunday losing streak began. Good thing there are only three left this season!
Oh, yeah, I guess they'll play on Sundays next season too. And those records carry over season-to-season? Damn. This team might be in trouble.
