When the Phillies faced the Rockies back in the beginning of April they were a dismal team heading towards playing bottom dwelling baseball that would lead to their manager being fired. Since then Colorado has flipped the script and become one of the hottest teams in baseball and a serious contender for the NL Wild Card. Phils are fresh off of a scorching month of July, but have started August most disappointingly. This 3-game set with the Rox will not be easy.

Previous Tale of the Tape for Colorado.
A name I hardly see get mentioned at all is Lakewood BlueClaws pitcher Brian Rosenberg. The righthander is 23 years old and stands 6'2" weighing 200 lbs. Since being drafted in the 13th round of the 2008 draft he's put up this ridiculous stat line: 10-3, 84.1 ip, 114 k, 29 sv, 0.96 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, and only 2 hr allowed. Why is he still at Lakewood and not being promoted to Reading or at least Clearwater?
Rumor has it Darren Daulton was a adviser for the film.
