14 days and counting till Rocktober!

This article today talks about how the Rockies are going to defy the odds once again and make the postseason in the National League. The biggest point is that they have two incredibly hot hitters right now in Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki. They bat in the 3rd and 4th spots respectively in the lineup. The players ahead of them need to get on base so they these two big hitters can rake them in with big hits and jump on the other team early. They are starting a 6 game road trip tonight and their record on the road is a paltry 29-42. Needless to say they need these games this upcoming week bad to stay in the hunt. They are 2 and 1/2 games out of both the division and the wild card and have a favorable schedule down the stretch to make the playoffs. Tonight on the mound is also Ubaldo Jimenez who is trying for NL tying 19th win. He is a serious Cy Young candidate and would be the first Cy Young winner for the Colorado Rockies organization. This weekend will prove pivotal if the Rockies will have any shot at the playoffs with ten games to go after next wednesday.

So, why is this news again? Is this an attempt to whip up interest in baseball’s pennant race? Who is the audience for this story?

I am soooo Weakkkkkk!

Have a good weekend.
