Looks like Colorado, Arizona and LA are going to be slugging it out!
This series with the Dodgers almost feels like September.

WooHoo.
Something to be excited about near mid-season for the first time in ages.
My MLB.com subscription money was wasted this year. My Giants are in the basement and rank near the bottom in almost every category, except home runs allowed.

I also see a lot of empty seats at AT&T Park, and signing last year, Johnny Cueto wants to leave, too. The 3 time World Series champion dynasty appears to be over and done.

But I'm happy for you DP. Go Rockies. I hate the Dodgers.
Well . . .

The last week has been a disaster. Not only are the Rockies losing, but they're getting blown out.
Hope it's not the beginning of another mid-season slide to the bottom.

Rockies currently down 11-6 to the Dodgers in the bottom of the 8th at LA.
3 runs scored on wild pitches.

Mrs. DP, a big fan, has left the room.

Update: Rockies lose 12-6

Your Giants might get a sweep this week, Goose.

I don't know. With the G's record, I'm not even sure they have won two games in a row. But, I did watched the condensed version of the Rockies/ Giants on MLB, and the G's won.

The G's reached another historical mark. There was/ is now the greatest difference in MLB history, between the winning percentage of the rivals, Giant's & Dodgers. The G's have literally fallen off a cliff this year. Club House moral/ team chemistry I have heard is very down.

This is a screen print from MLB.com's condensed version of a recent San Francisco Giant's game at this most beautiful Pittsburgh Pirates stadium.

Interesting jet trail cross in the sky,.....

Just lost to Arizona on a walk-off single.
Man, when the Rockies fall from first place they don't mess around.

Great catch!

Re the Rockies: Nobody in the NL West is going to catch the Dodgers. It's a Wildcard race now. I remain hopeful. I think the Rocks are for real this year.

Royals fans - It looks like we're in for a bumpy ride. The pilot has illuminated the seat belt sign. Please take your sets, buckle up, and hold on.

Astros and Dodgers might meet up in the world series this year. The two strongest teams. Washington Nationals are up there, too.
