Lineup Card: 7-20-11 Rockies vs Brewers

If you're looking for Rockies game lineups and you don't feel like searching all over Twitter or waiting for to post them, check back to Heaven & Helton about 30-60 minutes before first pitch. They should be here waiting for you.

We're back after two days in Iowa. Did you miss us?


Colorado Rockies (46-51)
  1. LF Carlos Gonzalez
  2. 2B Mark Ellis
  3. 1B Todd Helton
  4. SS Troy Tulowitzki
  5. RF Seth Smith 
  6. C   Eliezer Alfonzo
  7. 3B Ian Stewart
  8. CF Dexter Fowler
  9. P   Juan Nicascio
Jim Tracy won't bat Chris Iannetta higher than 7th, but Eliezer Alfonzo can hit 6th? Our manager is so freaking weird.

Rock Solid Recap: So now the offense finally likes Ubaldo

Rockies 12, Braves 3 (boxscore)

If Dan O'Dowd had known a few trade rumors would make the Rockies offense appreciate and support Ubaldo Jimenez more, he probably would have floated his name out there around last season's deadline.

For like 20-25 starts dating back to that time, the Rockies weren't there for him. The last two starts... 24 runs.

Yeah, now you care. You hear a few scouts are in the crowd, and now you want to be his friend again. Figures.

But seriously, a kick ass performance by the offense. They attacked a young pitcher that has been on a roll, shook him up, worked him over and never let him get off the mat. A relentless effort that I honestly expected to see happen a lot more often this season. Maybe not to the point of 12 runs night after night, but they let so many pitchers off the hook that they could have eaten alive.

Breaking: Not only were there scouts in attendance for Ubaldo's start tonight, I heard they were writing things down on paper. What could this development mean??
