Rockies @ Dodgers May 14, 2015: 11 Colorado Losses and Counting

The Rockies were once 11-8. Not bad! The Rockies are now 11-19. That’s… less great.

Now with 11 straight losses, including two to the Dodgers last weekend in Denver, the Rockies are reeling, and they won’t even have manager Walt Weiss tonight, who is recovering in a California hospital after an emergency appendectomy. Nor will they have reliever Brooks Brown, who went on the DL today, or old friend Rafael Ynoa, who was optioned to the minors. Nor, perhaps, will they soon have Troy Tulowitzki, though he reportedly said today he won’t demand a trade. They’ll pretty much have to trade him, though, with another season circling the drain; I said as much a year ago at FanGraphs.

The Dodgers are flying a lot higher, though they aren’t without their own issues. As expected, Pedro Baez went on the 15-day DL with a strained pectoral, and Daniel Coulombe was recalled to take his place. Not that his stay should be expected to last all that long; Kenley Jansen should be activated either Friday or Saturday. (Stop it with the “dump Chris Hatcher” business. Just stop.)

It’s been gloomy in Los Angeles for most of the day, and while the game is expected to be played, I can’t help but share this tweet from Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register, because, well, you just don’t see this all that often:

Is that bad? That seems bad.
