Their Michael Martinez:
Ian Stewart - While Stewart might have loads more potential and ability than Michael Martinez, he sure is hitting poorly this season. The former first round pick and Futures Game participant is batting only .149-0-4 in 109 at-bats through Saturday. He hit 25 homers two seasons ago and thirty one season in the minors so there's hope for Ian Stewart but then again, if he can't hit the ball out in Colorado...
Their Danys Baez:
There are currently no batting practice pitchers on the Rockies active roster.
What We're Drinking:
Corey - Coke Zero. I'd like to be drinking Plymouth Gin Navy Strength, though. I had this gin for the first time this week served on the rocks with a hint of sweet vermouth and I can't stop thinking about how good it was. Plymouth Navy Strength is bottled at 57% abv (114 proof), the traditional strength at which, if it happened to spill on gunpowder on board Royal Navy ships, the gunpowder would still ignite. Unfortunately, it's not sold in the states. Only the 80 proof version is apparently fit for sale in the "nifty fifty." So unless I can get to England, or Barbados (or Canada?) I'll be sipping on diet soda.
Carson - Arnold Palmer. Half lemonade, half iced tea. I make my own using Walmart calorie-free drink mixes in a big gallon pitcher.
