The Rockies will be going against the Phillies starting later today in Philly. This is not a good matchup for the Rockies as they have problems with lefty starting pitchers and will have to deal with Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels off the bat. The Rockies have left 16 game winner Jorge De La Rosa off the playoff roster due to a groin problem. Aaron Cook will start Game #2 and Jason Hammel Game #3 and that has to worry the Rockies a tad. The Rockies just don’t appear to have the firepower on offense to compete with the Phillies in this series.
PREDICTION: PHILLIES IN FOUR GAMES
