It isn't Jonathan Herrera's fault that the Rockies lost.With the tying run at the plate and one out in the bottom of the 9th inning, the Colorado Rockies sent Jonathan Herrera to the plate.Jonathan Herrera.While Herrera has had a very good year for the Rockies and plays the role that he has been given very well, he is frankly, not the guy anyone wants to see stroll to the plate with a chance to tie the game.Herrera promptly hit into a double play, ending the late Rockies threat and giving the Marlins the 5-3 victory. As mentioned, Herrera has been very good in the role the club has asked him to play, but the situation he was in on Thursday is a no-brainer, pinch-hit situation where a guy with a big bat who can tie the game comes to the plate.The problem is, that guy doesn't exist for the Rockies.

  • O'Dowd has needed to go for as long as he has been here. I don't think there has been one off season in all of his time where he has not dismantled and dessimated every team we have had. Anybody that knows anything about team sports is that it takes some time for a bunch of guys to gel into a winning team, and he has FAILED to let this happen. Idiot!
  • I'm not sure the blame doesn't fall on the entire organization. I have lived here 8 years and I don't understand why it takes 95 games to figure out a pitching staff. You never know who will be playing even taking into account injuries. What do they do at Spring Training? Is it true there is a front office person in the club House. I had heard that rumor. If true why would anyone want to be their field manager. The problem is YOU CAN'T FIRE the OWNER. Its the System. Saving pitchers with 100 pitch limit when throwing good. What are they saving them for? 10 games under 500. Frustrated?????
