One solo home run off the bat of Troy Tulowitzki was all that the club who claims to have as good of lineup as anyone in the game could muster off of yet another hapless, mediocre starting pitcher.The names on the uniforms change, but the story stays the same.

Pitching wins championships. It’s really that simple. No one denies that you need an offense to put runs on the board. An offense can carry your team far. But when the summer sun fades, games in October come down to the arms you have throwing them. In Denver, there appears to be a lack of concern for a glaring pitching problem. A problem that left uncorrected, will eliminate...
