Lineup Card: Rockies @ Rangers 6-23-12

Friday's Recrap: That Went Surprisingly Well


Colorado Rockies (26-43)
  1. Jonathan Herrera (SS)
  2. Jordan Pacheco (3B)
  3. Carlos Gonzalez (LF)
  4. Jason Giambi (DH)
  5. Michael Cuddyer (1B)
  6. Tyler Colvin (RF)
  7. Chris Nelson (2B)
  8. Wil Nieves (C)
  9. Dexter Fowler (CF)
Josh Outman (0-3, 8.41)

Listen, I appreciate Jonathan Herrera for what he is more than just about anyone, but only in Jim Tracy's warped mind is flip-flopping Herrera with Dexter Fowler a good idea. I don't care if Fowler is struggling lately. I don't care if Herrera has three singles and a double today, therefore justifying Tracy in his own mind. Leave Fowler the hell alone and let him try to figure his own way back to being the Dexter Fowler we saw in May without having to worry about where his name is on the card, or if it's even on the card.

Texas Rangers (44-27)
  1. Ian Kinsler (2B)
  2. Elvis Andrus (SS)
  3. Josh Hamilton (LF)
  4. Adrian Beltre (3B)
  5. Michael Young (DH)
  6. Nelson Cruz (RF)
  7. Mike Napoli (1B)
  8. Yorvit Torrealba (C)
  9. Craig Gentry (CF)
Colby Lewis (6-5, 3.00)
