Comments: Rockies Win! Rockies Win!

It really was a heck of a ballgame.

Too bad it didn't go another half-dozen innings (or more). Speaking as a Phan, I wanted those Rockies to be so tired on Wednesday that they couldn't even stand up.

Too bad the umps were so much a part of the result. Not just the final play (I agree, it looked like Holliday never touched the plate ... and McClellan's very delayed safe call was really, really confusing), but the was-it-a-homer earlier in the game as well. You want the umps to be invisible, but they certainly weren't last night.

Link, it's games like this that make alllllll the madness of the regular season worth it, no?

My ideal season would entail all series played out to their five or seven-game max. I hate it when baseball season ends.

I detect a subtle fall-off in Phillies fever the past two nights.

Just spent four days visiting friends in Boston. I walked past Fenway the day before the Red Sox-Angels opener and saw a tour group being taken through the park. Man, with Camden Yards and all the sanitized faux-urban ballparks that followed, a real urban ballpark, with frontage right on real city streets, is precious.

I'd love to see Fenway, but from what I've heard, the casual fan may be getting priced out of the experience. I do agree that the authentic old parks have a different feel than that of the new ones, but I'll bet the newer ones have better amenities!

Well, even at Fenway, I hear that the old troughs have been replaced by modern urinals.
