What a difference a month makes!

Tuesday, June 23, 2009 8:59 AM

Tu-lo Git 2 Quit Just under a month ago, the Rockies fired Clint Hurdle as their manager, and I advocated making a lot of trades to retool a team that was playing so poorly that the sum was clearly less than the individual parts.  Well what a difference a month makes!  Ever since firing Hurdle, the Rockies turned into the team I thought they were at the beginning of the season.  Some of the major highlights:

  • 19-5 under Jim Tracy, the best start by an in-season replacement manager in MLB history.
  • Franchise record 9 game road winning streak going into tonight's game versus the Angels.
  • Already set a new franchise record for wins in the month of June with 7 games remaining in the month.
  • Tied the longest winning streak in franchise history at 11 wins, matching the streak that got us into the playoffs in September 2007.
  • Currently on a streak of 17 wins in 18 games, sweeping the Cardinals, Brewers, Mariners, and Pirates in the process and taking 2 of 3 from the defending American League Champion Tampa Bay Rays  in the process.
  • Rockies have moved from last place in the NL West, 14 games back, to 3rd place, 9 games back, and have moved from the 2nd worst record in the National League to being 0.5 games behind San Francisco and Milwaukee for the NL Wild Card.
  • The Rockies went from the 2nd worst record in MLB at 18-28 to tied for the 4th most wins in the National League at 37-33.

I would have never thought that just making a managerial change would change this team this much.  I thought there was more than enough talent on this team to be a contender, but for some reason it never materialized in the first two months.  But boy are they on a run now.

It is great fun to be a Rockies fan right now!  Go Rockies!

Visitations

Tuesday, June 23, 2009 8:27 AM

Greg and Clyde play baseball on the Wii This past week, we had all sorts of friends visiting from out of town.  Greg and his girlfriend, Jacquelyn, were visiting from Austin, TX and Andrea's friend Jen from law school was in town for a law librarians conference in Boulder, so we spent quite a bit of time hanging out with them and playing tourist.

Wednesday, Andrea picked Jen up from the airport and hung out with her in the afternoon.  We then took her to Coors Field to watch the Rockies and the Tampa Bay Rays.

Thursday, I met Greg and Jaquelyn at Coors Field for the final game of the set against Tampa at noon.  We watched the Rockies win again, and then met Andrea, Clyde, and Susie at Buenos Aires Pizzeria.  After dinner we all headed back to our place for a spirited night of Wii bowling and baseball.

On Friday night, we met Jen's friends Miguel and Mike at Coors Field for the game against the Pirates.  Miguel was a big Phillies fan and generally a very knowledgeable baseball fan and we had a great time watching yet another Rockies win.

Jen with the liquor collection from Prohibition in the Broadmoor On Saturday, we got up and drove up to Boulder to pick up Jen again.  We then went and took the Celestial Seasonings tour.  This was a really fun tour, but would have been better during the week when the factory was operating.  After that tour, we headed down to Colorado Springs.  The original plan was to see the Garden of the Gods and drive up Pike's Peak, but mother nature had other ideas.  We did stop at Garden of the Gods and drove through there right as the rainstorm came down off of Pike's Peak.  The peak was still in the clouds, so we decided not to try that, and went to Cave of the Winds instead.  That was also a bad idea with over 200 stairs in 0.5 miles since Andrea was coming off ankle surgery and being $20/person, we passed on that too. 

Dancing with KelliWe next went to the Broadmoor and toured around there for a bit before heading to  my friends Kelli and Robb's place for a BBQ and dance.  They had just recently put in a new hard wood floor and wanted to have a party to celebrate.  It was a really good time.  We finally left there around 10 pm and got back to Denver around midnight.

On Sunday, Jen and Andrea went shopping at Colorado Mills before taking Jen to the airport.  I went to the Rockies game and watched them finish sweeping the Pirates before heading down to my softball game that we won 15-14 on a walk-off walk, coming back from a 14-4 deficit in the bottom of the last inning.

It was a really great week to spend with all of our friends, and now I need a break to recover!

Quick Update

Friday, June 12, 2009 10:41 AM

Taking off the cast Since it's been a while since I posted on here, I thought I should post a quick update.  Andrea had her ankle surgery on June 1st.  It went really well.  The doctor found quite a bit of synovitis and cleaned that up but didn't find any underlying tendon or cartilage damage, so he's optimistic that she will be pain free when it all heals.  She got the cast off on the 9th and is now walking in a boot without crutches, and is getting noticeably stronger every day.

Her parents were also here Tuesday through Friday last week to help her out and were a great help to us for the week that she couldn't put any weight on the ankle.  They fixed the toilet in the downstairs bathroom, a door that wasn't latching correctly, and the walk between the two decks that had collapsed last winter.  They were amazingly helpful.
