Why is everyone throwing all these lame ass excuses around? Oh, Harvey pitched like shit because it’s Colorado? Oooook, so why didn’t we hit, then? Kershaw hangover?
Reality check: Harvey can’t get through five without being shelled. Some bad OF defense didn’t help his cause, but both teams played shitty OF-D (so many balls under gloves…was it the wind?) so it evened out. He got shelled, end of story.
Reality check: This lineup is in a slump a duuuump.
If we take the next two, it’s a successful road trip. But that’s a big if. Like I said at the outset, this was a ridiculous piece of our schedule. No days off and long flights and whatnot. But get tough, now. The Rockies aren’t good. Where are our bats?
