The Colorado Rockies choose Mark Redman to start game #4

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,The Playoffs by chinmusic on Friday 5 October 2007 at 9:03 pm

The Rockies have decided to start veteran lefty Mark Redman in game #4 if needed against the Phillies.  This was an odd choice but the Rockies needed another starter after they used Josh Fogg in relief in game two.  The Rockies also like using a lefty to attempt to negate Chase Utley and Ryan Howard.  Redman pitched in 5 games (3 starts) this season for the Rockies and he was 3-0 with a 3.20 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP.  His overall numbers on the season were not pretty.  In 11 games (8 starts) with the Braves & Rockies, Redman was 2-4 with a 7.62 ERA and a 1.84 WHIP.  Hopefully the Rockies just end this in game #3.

    Hey guys – Phillies fan here. Just wanted to say congrats to the Rockies, and give you guys the respect you deserve. Classy team, great pitching, and ridiculously great hitting. I went to games 1 and 2… and let me tell you, going through the heart of the Rockies line-up is scary. Everyone can hit. When they get good pitching, both starting and middle relief, to get to your closer, I mean… the Rockies have a real shot to go far. Anyway, Philly fans do respect the Rockies, and on 610 WIP (our sportstalk radio in Philadelphia) a common theme is that while the Phillies bats were silent, the Rockies did shut them down and win the series. Good luck to you guys going forward. Maybe let’s do this again next year, but of course, hopefully the Phils will get hot at the right time! -JP
