Today's game is at an odd time -- 3:05 local time (4:05 CT) on a Friday. The Rockies' Friday games are at a mishmash of times -- some at 6:35, some at 7:05, and this one and two others (vs. the Tigers on June 10, and vs. the Phillies on July 29) at 3:05.
No wonder the Rockies franchise is in trouble.
|Today's Starting Pitchers|
Mark Prior has a 4-0 record with a lifetime 1.44 ERA vs. the Rockies. Byung-Hyun Kim has a 2.55 ERA vs. the Cubs in his career, but that comprises 11 relief appearances in his other incarnation as a closer, and one really bad start at Wrigley Field on May 28.
None of this means anything when they open the doors at Coors Field, the major leagues' version of Donkey Kong. It's a lot of fun, but it's not baseball.
Discuss amongst yourselves.
