Rockies' run may be over, and its demise can be traced to inaction at trade deadline

Padres' late-season pickup Tejada helps end Colorado's 10-game winning streak

By David O. Williams

The Colorado Rockies did nothing to improve their team at the trade deadline. The division-leading San Diego Padres picked up shortstop Miguel Tejada.

Tonight Tejada almost singlehandedly ended the Rockies' 10-game winning streak, going 3 for 4 with four runs batted in, including a two-run homerun, and made a diving stop to rob Dexter Fowler of a hit. The Padres padded their National League West lead to 2 ½ games with a 6-4 win.

The Rockies also failed to get any pitching help at the trade deadline, and that inaction may be catching up to the team down the stretch. A broken leg suffered by starter Aaron Cook last week forced Jeff Francis into action tonight, and he exited early after being battered by Tejada.

Francis, who along with Cook has been a mainstay for the Rockies the last several years, has been rehabbing from his own injury issues and was on a short leash for the critical showdown with the Padres.

Inexperienced reliever Esmil Rogers came in and promptly gave up another two-run base hit to Tejada, and then the seemingly always-shaky Franklin Morales gave up a homer in the 8th inning for the final margin of victory.

Carlos Gonzalez went 2 for 5 and picked up his 101st RBI, and Troy Tulowitzki once again did his best to carry the team with a three-run jack. But these guys can't do it all.

Yes, Colorado has again made things interesting in September, but slow starts in April and May, inconsistency most of the season and the failure of management to do anything in July to bolster the team for the stretch run may once again prove the ultimate tease for loyal Rockies fans.

I agree with your comments re trade inaction but would add that the starting pitching has been woeful. In addition the rookie relievers such as Rogers and Escalona have failed. Whatever happened to Matt Daley and Taylor Bucholz. Finally, the experiment with EY Jr is a disaster. Although he is hitting better than Barmes, his fielding is inadequate and he is very slow turning the double play. Other than that, the Rocks are doing great.

The Colorado Rockies were one of the hottest teams in baseball for the first half of the season. After all, professional video production services had a winning record through their first 80 games and were looking like a possible contender for the postseason. They were even ahead of pace when compared with other recent teams that made it into October. But then came the second half, where they've gone 19-39 since July 1st, dropping them to fourth place in their division and six games out of a wild card spot.

They rank 11th in the AL in team ERA 4.07, and five of their eight most used relievers have ERAs above 4.60. If they can deal Haniger and Fraizer to bolster their bullpen, they could still have a shot at the final AL wild-card berth. simulated live

The team tried to do something about it at the trade deadline, but they came up empty-handed. Colorado sent nine players to the minor leagues, but none will come back to help this season. I like the author which is writing this, last time I read a book about fiction series, the company changed and hire a professional book writer , after this the book are so friendly.
