"On KOA NewsRadio. Carefully retarget about another walk off back to back three last four days, it's getting exciting around here, you know, for all the downers, and we talk about the season as were what fifty one games in town. Right. About fifty one fifty two games in now. We've still got about one hundred ten to go, something like that. I mean it's a long season. The RAC needed to start turning things around and after Trevor story had the walk up on Friday night against the Orioles. He said, maybe this will get us going about things didn't go the way the Rockies wanted on Saturday, but then a walk off yesterday by Tony Walters. And then Rimal toppy with the walk off today in Desmond almost today. Good thing. Get to second base. Got it done. I'm telling you things are starting to happen here and it couldn't come at a better time. Almost a must situation for the Rockies. I'm not talking about winning the game or winning the extra inning games. I'm talking about. They wanna series over Baltimore. They're back home. And they're. Right at five hundred now at home. Now you gotta start adding up. Now, you got to get into the plus column. You gotta start adding to that and start taking advantage of being Coors field. This may be what gets the Rockies going. It may been what happened on Friday may have been what happened yesterday. But, but black has said it the players have said at this team grinds it out and keeps coming at you. And suddenly, the bats had come around here over the last few weeks, and you start to, I know the starting rotation is a mess. I get it. Kyle freelance still got some things to figure out that's fine. But look what happened today. John gray throwing today against Zach Grinky, neither one of factor into the decision in the end you get to Arizona's bullpen and you just keep grinding and you get it done. So it's huge. All right. Special edition of Rockies react. Here. Going gonna take you through seven o'clock. We will as we do on our Sunday shows following Rockies. Clubhouse every Sunday were on. We take phone calls. We take texts. We'd take tweets and we talk with hall of fame. Baseball writer, Tracy wrinkles b. To get some perspective, not just from the game that happened. Although it's gonna be hard not to talk about just this game. But we could talk about the walk offs, right? But the perspective of where the Rockies are where they need to be where they're headed. And I've started to get a better feeling last week last Sunday. We were on after the Rockies were swept out there in Philly. And it was a it was kind of a dreary conversation of this team is talented enough to be in the playoffs, but the way they're playing they're nowhere near obviously coming into the day. I mean you find yourself double digits down sitting behind the LA dodgers best record in National League. I mean that's the team you're chasing. Can you be that good? Well still a lot of games left. So we'll see. All right. Phone number three zero three seven one three eight five eight five. We could talk baseball. We talk about today. We at the game you drive in home. It sounds like you folks, Mina, left a little early to whichever barbecue to go to what's going on. By the way, we hope you had an opportunity to spend some time this Memorial Day, maybe with family, maybe with friends, and you also had an opportunity to pause for a moment and honor, the folks have made the ultimate sacrifice here on this Memorial Day. It's just a little bit more red white and blue coming in on this Monday. And it should that's the way that it should feel. And to top it off. You put a little purple on top of it. Because Rockies get the win in game. One of what is a four game series against a division foe in Arizona. So that's good win for the Rockies. And they're now two and two against Arizona. You got a chance to try to catch Arizona. I told you Rockies. We're sitting fourth, so there's a few teams you need to leapfrog, as well, Tracy wrangles be talked about it after yesterday. We were talking about other, you know, their ten back of the dodgers..

"I want to ask you about this. We had a guy during the rain delay to texted me. And then tweeted me, but talking about maybe we ought to think about putting a roof on Coors field or something like that. Because there's so many delays. We don't really have that many delays to sort of looking back through we and certainly games postponed. I know we've had a couple of this year that we've had to shift around, but on average didn't happen very often. Here. I mean, April I think April they've had maybe sixteen in their history may have had like eight or nine, and I don't think they've ever even had more than four in the entire history of the franchise any other. Yeah. So I, you know, look around. I don't know that there's any more weather distruptions here than there are other places. It's just that. And this is what I know from well southern southeastern well-being for sure I'm so I would say, it's probably. Fairly similar in northeastern. Colorado is that, you know, people don't understand our weather pattern and the heaviest snowfall average freer in this part of the country is March second average highest snowfall of the year is April breath third is December. So and then June is fourth or I mean may fourth or fifth. So it's just part of being in this part of the catcher. But once you get past the middle of may throat many disruptions. And you know, I think when you start adding the roof for the other stuff reconfiguration that you go through, and you know, what you're gonna have miserable. I mean, Minnesota doesn't have they were talking about a place. Probably could use Minnesota out have adult. Yeah. Yeah. That's true. Well, I'm not a big I had to suffer through the kingdom, which is probably the worst domain history next century. Oh, well, I was gonna say I mean you. Yeah. What was that? I I have to take my very first major. I mean, obviously, the Rockies weren't here. When I was a kid. My first major league baseball game was at the kingdom. And I was kind of like. Ooh. But why polite? Yeah, it was you know, what I what I remember about. That is is covering the angels initially covered the Mariners for three years to keep a job. But. So the first game ever there. Davey Garcia was the third base coach. And he's looking at it. We're on the workout date. He's looking at it because the grants period goes, how come you have three twenty one for the distance down the lines which was the required distance for major league baseball under the new under the rules. And he said, well, that's that's how far, you know. That's the way he goes it looks to me like it's closer to three hundred eleven or twelve feet. It doesn't look to me like Schroder Twenty-one feet, and they got into a huge debate. So then the grass caper goes I'll prove to so they measured. It was rendered and twelve feet. Contractor had lied saved a lot of money. But had charged him for three twenty one. Wow. That's. Yeah. So why? Oh. You know, what are you going to do at that point? But that was part of the the problems in the kingdom. But there you got cheap over here. And this is where people I think with course, feel the talk about Hct. It's home runs aren't the big deal. Of course field. It's probably fifth or sixth in the National League. The big deal course field is the spacious of the outfield. Yeah. If you wanna make it more pitcher friendly ballpark. I always contend that you need to move home plate out about five feet and expand the foul territory and take away the bloopers following because he outfielders place so deep because of how far the ball carries. Yeah. It is a huge. In other words, reward the pitcher for making the good pitch. Don't let him be disappointed that he made a good pitch and the ball fell in blooper. And you know, what if you get penalized because you give up a long ball, and that's your fault. Make a better next. Yeah. On the other side of things the Rockies lead the National League in triples. So you got that. Right. Yeah. Look for the positive. Now, I I can't believe we threw a kingdom reference. That's a by the way, I should ask you when you were covering the game. I nineteen eighty seven. Two. Left and gone to Kansas City Dallas by then. Okay. Vagabond till I got to come home. Okay. That was the old days of the Rangers. And the Mariners when they were really bad guy. Like Odobi McDowell is playing for the Rangers. I got I got see Charlie. Huff throw them. I would have been there then because I was would have been with the visiting team. Oh, see there. How about that you and I probably at the same game. Just a little toddler. I was but I down. No. All of that. But I snuck down on the what would have been the visitor side because truly hopeless warming up and I had to see that. Charlie wasn't quite as fanatic as a lot of people. Like it still. Remember my first day, the I opener, I covered when I went on to beat Texas and it's opening day in the teams in the field taking batting practice at. I'm walking through the dugout at walk by Charlie and Shirley, humanity. I go to why goes we'll sit down and talk. I said, well, you're gonna pitch today goes, so I'm not pitching. Now doesn't mean I don't wanna converse because he loved to chat is more than I did. And that was just Charlie. You know, it just it. Oh, oh used to tell people was everybody marvels at how hard Nolan Ryan throws. You realize how much more difficult. It is to be me and go out there and pitch him. He does you should get people out. Yeah. Walker each you know, and just start laughing. That's good stuff while combo that is I mean, those two. Yeah, it's messed up spring training because the day that both reported to spring training. They were both ready to throw a hundred pitches in a game. So they would they would like pitch ratings or whatever that they allowed the starters to pitch the first time and second time, and then they would go in the backfield and they'd have to have Skinner squad game. So that they could catch and get their hundred pitches. It. And everybody, you know. But no it only pitched was forty seven. So I'm sure that you know, if you if you pitch properly, it's still going to hurt you if you if you throw too many pitches, right, right, right? Cowboy goodstuff Craig talkative, we'll talk to you next week. All right. Absolutely. That's baseball writer, Tracy wrangles. Be inside the radium inside the seems dot com. You missed the way Davis conversation that we talked about it's on inside the same dot com as well break.

"Visit with the hall of fame sportscaster writer, all sorts of things Tracy wrangles be and trace it out in his final week since this has been really the year of pitching for the Rockies to get to this potential playoff point that we'd focus in a little bit on kale Kile free linen. How truly remarkable a season. He's had. I think it's pathetic that everybody wants to to me, whatever an offensive player does here. Then they ignore Kyle Freeland. I this fourth in the league in ERA. Right. He's pitching at Coors field. He's got like the lowest DRA ever at Coors field this season and people just want to keep overlooking him. And I feel bad for Jacob degrom. He's got sub to Yarra is eight Nate. You know, this was a kid. That's picture Coors field with a two to forty to forty five where you're not supposed to be able to pitch. Swing sixteen seventeen eighteen games before it's all over. And and he's on the team that he's he's the key to the tire rotation. That's going to take a minute to to not give him his credit surgery. What sir do for Washington? These one was he went in four in the month of September. When needed to make a run you start looking at these different guys that everybody said, well, this guy should be the. Cy Young winner. But nobody wants to talk about Kyle. And I think it's pathetic. One of the interesting things when you get into numbers, which I think both you and I appreciate about Kyle. He probably doesn't rank in the top ten with any single pitch of his. But collectively he's what you want pitcher to be. He's not afraid, and that's the biggest thing in in any athletic endeavor. And this is where analytics kit judgeship talked about Josh Allen with this Wyoming because there was how could you play like you did the other day because he disliked Kyle freely. He's not afraid to pitcher. He's not afraid to throw a strike. You know, you can't get guys out if you don't throw strikes. He's not afraid. He's got the ability to command his pitches. He understands how to make just on the breaking ball. So it will be effective Ecorse field. It's not the same as you have a break in boas sea level, and he doesn't live in the middle of the plate. So he does everything you could want to do. He's not gonna overpower you. He's never going to really like get that.

"S a huge series. And I know each time that I've come on here in the evening over the last couple of weeks. I've said they're giant series. They're big games. That's the way it is. When you're in the hunt for Red October, hyper buddy, Cory Lopez. Glad you're here might over the phone lines up here a little bit tonight. But coming up a little bit later on. We will talk with baseball writer, Tracy, wrangles me. He's going to join us here. A regular on Rockies all access, of course. And we're gonna talk a little bit about this race that continues on and as we move through the week. We'll head out to Shabazz Rabin, and we'll also hook up with our doc is well about potential injuries, you know, knocking on wood that that doesn't happen. Whereas big win for the Rockies yesterday. And again, I know doom and gloom here. It's a three game series. It's against divisional opponent out there at AT and T park and the Rockies got what they needed and that was to get a win kind of stop the bleeding a little bit. It felt like unable to score any runs barely be able to get any hits at anything. But they figured out a way to get it done coming up here. A little bit later on we mentioned, Tracy wrangles be. We are also going to be taking a look at what other teams are doing. And what they need to do here over the next. Why don't we get a dozen games essentially left for the Rockies and just a handful of series that are left to take a look at the other teams Rockies are facing a look at the road that they have at a down the road again Rockies on captured seven thirty it'll be the first a three-game series, the Rockies and the dodgers. And as we talk tonight the Rockies a half game lead in the National League West. Let's talk about what happened yesterday and Tonio sends the tell put the foot down a little bit and swung the bat.

"Talking with the likes of Jerry Schimmel hollow pain baseball writer, Tracy wrangles, be amber going to hook up with our friends at Ortho Colorado as well, Dr David Schneider will join us at some point next week reading up to each gave the series with the LA dodgers staff. It's interesting the way that it sets up. We told you the schedule for tonight dodgers are playing the cardinals. Now Diamondbacks are playing the Houston Astros in interleague play right now. Boy, the Rockies tonight. Well, we see who's on the mound. It is Tyler Anderson. There's not enough time to get somebody else ready. And I I know that the questions have been out there. Maybe Chad Bettis could go he's not stretched out. He's not ready to go and bud black believes the Tyler Anderson is going to be the guy he hasn't won since July fourth, but he's on the road. He's pitching at a pitcher's park. And the way the rotation sets up he's going to have another opportunity next week against the dodgers at another pitchers park. Maybe that will fix whatever else have been going on with the the big lefty in Tyler Anderson. He'll go up against Chris strat. Of course tonight. Let's tell you know, rotation as it sets up now in the series against San Francisco. So Tyler Anderson tonight airman Marquez will throw tomorrow. For the Rockies in game two against Cisco. And then it'll be Antonio sense tell that means it sets up your two guys that are at the top of your lineup to go against the dodgers to start off that three-game series. John gray would go on Monday. And again, only the next to pitching starts have been announced by the Rockies. But most likely the rotation will go John gray on Monday Heil Freedland with throw on Tuesday against the dodgers out in LA. And then next Wednesday. It'd be time for Tyler Anderson to throw once again, the right? He's given day off after that. So if things don't work out for Tyler Anderson so to speak. You can probably go that bullpen and start burning things. But let's think positive here on this push toward rock.

"Same time when the, game is going on I see a for lack of a, better term I see a calmness a real veteran ballclub that even. When they were down seven nothing yesterday they knew they were going to. Get back into it somebody was going to do something and that was going to spark something and that seems to be playing that way sense early July that this Team is business like and they don't panic they just keep grinding Well you know they they didn't get very far last year but they they had. To? Scramble. At the end to. Get to that second playoff, spot right yeah the. Second wildcard spot so If you're a competitor. And if, you have any any sense of the game you learn from those, experiences those are those are things where you can can grow and and. I think, that's part of, what's happening I mean if you're around this. Team enough to know, even, in spring, training, there's there's a seriousness about the type, of players that they've put together I mean Trevor stories very very focused on what he's. Trying? To. Do it blackbutt LeMay. Hugh Obviously Aaron Nado but I mean these these are, the guys that really pay attention and nobody's more focused and nobody's more. Worried about, what to do, to make everybody else better no matter how. He's claiming the industrial His addition a year ago I think has been huge to this organization just because of what he. Brings in his presence and his professionalism The last thing for me I'm watching other teams, jockeying for position still Milwaukee put a claim. On Matt Harvey and the reds pulled, him back, Milwaukee's, not settled with what they've got yet and they're really going for it. This year and as they, sit in, the wildcard I mean they're they're a game on the Rockies right now. For that whiled card spot and I know that the you. Know obviously the brewers are, there three, and a half back of the cups I just don't and what the cubs to get Cole hamels All these I mean that's a tough division for them they know, they're shot really is in the wildcard and. They're really going for the Rockies stood, Pat I, mean, they got oh but they really have kind of stayed Pat and trusted. The team that they have, I think, that's gonna pay dividends here down the stretch well I do too and. The thing is that unless you're going to go get somebody Let's go to the front of your rotation mean yeah There's no guarantee. Matt Harvey's any as good as what they already. Have Right Surprise me that that they went after, Matt he's pitched better than he did in New, York but their rotational is is. Real if I mean that's been studying thing about where they are is that their, rotations actually gotten him to where they are but. I mean if if you're the. Rockies You know you you pretty well set your team up and. Unless you get, that major impact type guy You know you you picked up you picked up. Holiday to take care of that right handed threat and you picked up owed to settle down the bullpen and I think if you look at it the bullpen since os got here every everything's kind of. Falling, in, place. A little better and even the guys that, were really struggling if started to pitch better yeah, yeah yeah Harvey wouldn't wouldn't fit into the rotation here and that's what it. Felt like desperation for Milwaukee like they know that they, need, help and they're clinging. Onto this wildcard spot so they're gonna go after anybody, that they can, get hey they picked up Jordan Lyles tells, you a lot and we all, like Jordan but he walked he. Walked ahead of the hitting the fifth fifteenth inning that won the game how you can walk your house I have no idea, but they manage their complex that Yeah That's, boy and that's. Something It's gonna be fun down stretch cowboy is is going. To be something to. See that's that's for sure and I think that we under estimate and you've mentioned, his, name several times in oh what an impact. He has. Put a pro he is he is an, and he. Filled that we're we're done. It struggled where Various guys have not been able to go into that seventh-inning all get, it, to the eighth inning Peron Evita who can. Get it. To a ninth inning for Davis oh just, brought to. Comb that's there And it it it might you might think different. But it it creates a. Chance ruined. To take a depressant you'll more comfortable and it it it puts everything through the organization so that that you're going to have everyone pitches better because of his presidency and. That's, what they needed they didn't they That that was what they were missing was the guy to bridge that. From before the eight to. Nine hundred. Eighty Yeah It was big. Cowboy good to talk to. You enjoy the game down there and safe travels coming back home after pokes. Win. Okay All right. Buddy Hall of, fame baseball writer Tracy wrangles be inside the seems you can check it out inside the. Seems dot com all the insights into the Rockies and two major league baseball as we're had a game to the Rockies. And, the cardinals well every series from here on out is.

"And down the front. Range wherever you may be long the. Networks so glad you're here. I know folks down in. Pueblo there I did get that list. See we get that list give, me, a, shout, outs, as, well, you, can call us three zero three. Seven one three eight five eight five and certainly along the network I know, when I, jumped on board with the with the, voices of summer of course. When there are rain delays that happened we've. Had four of those I think that I've jumped on this year we try to open. The phone lines up and usually they get loaded up pretty, good so it's a good opportunity for you to ask some questions. How maybe we're answering some of those. Questions for you as well. I've got some answers from some questions it came in on Twitter, Lopes news. Sports l. o. p. e. s. news sports and again come Thursday we're going to break down a little bit more of some of the things that the Iraqis are going to have to Do they start pushing forward and getting ready for the Diamondbacks to open up. The back half of the season as they will head to, Phoenix on Friday we'll be back with you tomorrow night as well. Seven o'clock mountain time and then Rockies. On debt coverage Friday at. Seven o'clock for you so lots of good stuff going on that, beat you. On the all star game I mean I guess this is the all star edition so we should update you on things Three runs, scored and they've all come from home runs Aaron judge has got. A home run Mike proud got. Home right not to be outdone Mike you don't talk about, him as much and again you. Think about it he's in this huge. Media, market in LA Anaheim whatever and Aaron judge hits a, home run and so Mike proudly hits a. Home run to I like to see that I'm big I, mean big fan of both but it's fun to watch Mike trout puddle maybe the best player in baseball all around. You think about that so he's, got a home run and then Wilson contrary to home run for the initially league it's where we sit to one I think they're headed to the fifth now as I see things go off of the screen there here's some interesting conversations to have as. Well we'll go back to what Tracy wrangles be. Had to say and we appreciate the cowboy joining us, the Rockies and every team in. Major league baseball now can reset their rotation obviously with four days off here hoping. That the, guys didn't go the all star game or during the bullpens getting their workouts and And continuing on but it's going to start. Coming out and we'll have a pretty good idea potentially by, tomorrow may and deputy on Thursday the way that the Rockies are going to start setting up for the back half. Of the season with their rotation, for Tracy to say wouldn't be surprised Seekonk Freedland up top I wouldn't be surprised either it's interesting That's the way. That worked at he got the home start. Last year and was a little slow to get going here this season, but it turns out he's, probably the best pitcher in that rotation right now and Tyler Anderson is a close second to lefty so you're not going, to squeeze him in their back to back so free Lynn John gray I can see I don't think you're gonna throw Chad medicine they're, at the top. Of that rotation and. No offense to the veteran. Of course But he's going to have to get some rehab work? I have not seen his work yet down on the farm but it's going to happen here. Sooner rather than later if they're. Going to get him back in there otherwise Antonio since is probably going to end up being the. Guy that's going to be at the bottom of that rotation for now until. Beddis is ready to go so Freeland grain Tyler. Anderson then would be your guy I guess you can have Andersen go for but, why, don't. You get him. Out there a little bit sooner and certainly. I think you want Anderson to go in the series against the Diamondbacks. On Sunday And then..

"Looking back at the first half, of the season Ages early Field back there Sake The Rockies walk off, fans and what's next for the Rockies in the second half This. Is Rockies react on the sale way Rockies radio network Here we go back half the. Show here, on a Tuesday, and Tuesday's with Tracy as well the. Cowboy Alabama baseball writer Tracy wrangles be. Jumping back on board so glad to everyone is here cowboy let's. Start looking ahead here on the back half of the season, we kind of we started to do that? A little bit but how does bud black take this rotation does he reset it or does he just set it up the way that they, had it on opening day because John gray looked pretty. Good pretty sure he's going to stay with the big club I think. He would have been backed down by. Now so he could get into the groove there but I don't. Know I I think you've got to the first forgot how, split up Freeland Anderson 'cause you don't want? The two left handers together but those are the better pitchers in the league right now so I think you've probably I would be shocked to, freelance isn't your first guy out yeah I wondered that If p, the guy then you. Go, with Anderson and neither game three or four and so with gray you. May you may come back and game too because, you may not want him to sit too long coming up. What he did also want to get a quick look at. Even see how he feels? A, tough situation that I think the most encouraging thing you saw with Friedland in the first half whereas. Last two starts couldn't, get to the sixth inning because he throwing so many pitches time she just giving up one run you know he was. Able to. He was able to keep the game in control. He was able to, limit the damage team did even on a day when he. Wasn't pitching like he, liked to, be pitching and I think that's that's, where you start to look at people that can put together special. Seasons because they're able they're able to survive in that's that's that's what John didn't do in the first half No. Decisions yet. Seven wins in one no decision that they want And and. That was not a very pretty no decision yeah So when you're when you're, like a one eighty roughly ERA in your in your? Wins When you're close. To ten in the air in all your other starts that's where the challenge comes in you've got to be able to get that down to keep the team in games and to give them a chance to, win on the days that you're not. As you're, not at your best and there's no there's no reason John can't do that I mean you sit and you talk about what Not not saying he's a bad pitcher I'm just saying he the, focus has to stay there and he. Can't get, frustrated when things don't go right yes Get. More? Determined They, always say it's it's easy, to be good You know it's it's hard Anybody anything you do when things are quite going right to? Keep your focus moving forward and that's what that's what celebrates deal or separates delete for the other guy's been an interesting season this year for. The Rockies, with the rotation I mean when they sent John gray down about two and a half weeks ago now that was the first time that they had to do. Anything with their starting rotation I, know the, Chad better says you know had the hot spot and his pitching on one. Of his pitching fingers there so he, went onto the DL there but the Rockies if. The, pitching was, so inconsistent eventually And they did with John gray they had to do something but what a season to go almost all the way through the first half of the season and..

"Know They have a lot of success lately, at home The biggest thing, is I. Gotta stay out on the road to they, can't they can't do like last year where they they wound up. In the second half really struggling on the road Good team they have to be able to. Take advantage of both those places in. Build off that if they do that they're going to be in great shape plus six. On the road and the plus six in, the overall standings so that's where the difference comes in that is Yeah that. Is, something that they can continue to play on the road, that's that's gonna. Be fun to watch yeah you'd like to think they're gonna finish ten or twelve games over five hundred on, the road you like to think they're gonna finish fifteen or twenty over one hundred at home well not going. To get to fifteen or twenty at home but For everything to, go well they probably need to pick up. Four, more games on the road at ten or twelve at, home I think they'd be in great shape if they if they do. That, there's no reason they can't win them home there's no reason they can't get back to doing that Two of the, best pictures when you think about address both. In the top ten in the National League that's amazing I mean Field so you have to discount. Their statistics Yeah That is an amazing stat though to think about and and they get no recognition, for, hey cowboy. Ca can you hold? On We got.

"To him tomorrow so, a natural Tuesday with Tracy and we'll have him in a, little longer conversation than we normally have with Tracy wrangles be Rockies all access all-star addition and for the network affiliates that are jumping on board we do a Rockies all access two hours before the. First pitch every Saturday it's just not on the, network But again. We talk a lot of baseball we, talk with obviously our voices of summer Jack Corrigan and Jerry Schimmel. Each week on Saturday and really expand a little bit more about what's, going on with the Rockies we also have. The opportunity to talk with the front office for the, Rockies namely Jeff Bryant each most of the time but we've talked with the scouting directors we've talked to other folks involved with the operations with the Rockies as well, we do that each, and every week two, hours before the first pitch each Saturday during the. Regular season we're also going to hear later. On this week from our MLB, insider and that is scout with the Minnesota Twins but he's our MLB insider here at the flagship station and that is Ed Henderson and we will hear from him and then. Come Thursday course we're going to get into it with some of these other. Guys as well but come Thursday We're really going to open things up I'm gonna give you a couple of places that you, can go we're going to try to answer some questions and those questions could be resetting the rotation for the Rockies will there be. A, new rocky that will be here is John. Gray. Still going to be on the roster they haven't made that decision. Yet now he looked great on, Saturday but, is he gonna come back or. Are they going, to send him back down and let him get a few more start standing triple a. I don't see that happening but it's been kind of an odd. Run over the last couple of weeks for John gray we'll see we can answer, some of those questions as well we're. Gonna open the phone lines up here. A little bit later on tonight a three zero three seven one three eight. Five eight five back end of the, show is when we are probably going to end up taking those. Phone calls as we're kind of pushing up here against our timeline but, some of the things that we want to. Try to get done here before we joined general manager, Jeff each with that conversation again that's gonna come up here at seven nineteen wow what a way to finish out the first half of the season I know technically, it's not the Half of the season buttered rarely, is a natural break when you hit the all-star game as a Rockies get the big win and end up going six games above. Five, hundred and this is what it sounded like. Yesterday. Coors field another pitch to story is hidden to center field in? Deep going back his gamble track Really Four Trevor story Rockies win it three Maybe the deepest the ballpark left field he is being. Mobbed at home plate is Trevor story the all star comes through the Rockies would, nobody out in the bottom. Other night very. Similar on the network you heard it, if you're listening to the game yesterday what? A finish or that was a fun what I was, actually on the road when it happened I almost went off the road when it. Happened, because I was celebrating so hard fifth straight win for the Rockies and they enter the. Break against six games above five hundred. That's the most of a. Five hundred they have been this season it's happened once. Before their two games back the dodgers so. We've been talking about an our show we talk about check in with. Jerry the dodgers, of the scary team in this one I understand the Diamondbacks led most of the first half, of the season atop the NFL. West but the dodgers are really scary team of Iraqis are two games back Abell their. Game and a half pack of Arizona Diamondbacks here's what trapper story had to say after, the game he talked with our. Very own Mike Reiss wow what a moment take us to that it back then Honestly just trying to hit the ball hard somewhere Pitcher he's got yes Who's gonna, be tough, but Got me a little bit and I kind of got the head now had to feel. Like. You got it all, yeah.
