The Rockies await the Metros with some bemusement, a sweep of the Tribe and a nice series with the Pale Hose (2-1) just accomplished.



Rockies'll be really bemused if the Mets leave town with Matt Holliday.

Read on the web that's in the realm of possibility. What's the word out that way?


1) Fire Tony Bernazard. He has turned the clubhouse into his own personal campaign platform for Minaya's job.

2) Fire Minaya and please PLEASE hire a GM who can evaluate talent! I don't know what happened to the guy who got Trachsel et al, reclamation projects at half the cost, but this jackass signed Mota, Sosa, and a host of people who simply didn't belong on a MLB roster. Hell, I wouldn't have offered them a spot on my beer league rotation!

3) I don't have a real problem with Perez' being spotty. He's a number four starter on a team with two number four starters. Maine is the puzzlement. I suspect Peterson was trying to shape him into the next Tom Glavine when he's really got more power and less finesse.

4) If I was manager, I would bench Reyes every time he swung and hit the ball up, a la Willie Mays Hays in "Major League". Manuel showed something on Tuesday night (the night after the firing) by yanking Reyes out for his little drama queen act at first. Maybe he'll have the cojones to do what I suggest.

5) Delgado seriously needs to be told he's platooning. He's two years past his last good year. Forget him. Players his age don't come back anymore than their grey hair turns dark again. He could be this generation's Ed Kranepool if he got his rest.

6) I disagree with you, mildly, about Trot Nixon. He's a fine replacement for Alou, but if you look at it in this context-- Alou answered the problems of not scoring runs in 2006 (which Delgado was supposed to do), and Nixon answers the Alou problem, so Nixon in effect is your answer for 2006?-- you have a good point.

7) When is Billy Wagner going to fess up about his right foot? His slider has less movement on it than Paris Hilton's bowels.
