• HaroldHecuba: Mike Mussina is EASTERN EUROPEAN, not Italian....

So yeah, shades of 2007, it looks like God has taken a liking to the Colorado Rockies once more, as they are currently in the midst of a 17-1 tear.

But the single scariest thing about this whole team is not their ability to beat all comers despite being managed by Jim Tracy.

Nay, it’s the fact that Jason Marquis, of all people, is the “ace” of the staff, and that his current record is a ridiculous 9-4, which puts him on pace to win 21 games.

Yes, you read that right. Jason Marquis. Pitching half his games in Coors Field. On pace to win one score and one games this season.

Yikes. Maybe that’s not God’s doing after all. More like Satan’s.
