It took 12 innings but the Rox avoided being swept by the Braves, winning 6-5.

Against top teams like the Giants and Braves, the Rox are now 1-5, which is not very encouraging.

Going in, I was willing to guess the Braves to be the better team. What is disappointing about this series and the Giants series is how anemic the bats were. I'm glad to salvage the series and end the homestand on a high note but you are absolutely right, the Rox have been completely outclassed by the better NL teams so far. Next up is 4 @ Arizona followed by 3 @ Los Angeles. Realistically I feel the Rox can at least take 2 and split the Arizona series, but the Dodgers (especially in L.A.) are historically bad news for the Rockies. If they get through these next seven with a 3-4 mark I'll take it.

If you woulda told me a month ago that the Rox would be 14-7 and in 1st place in the NL West....I probably would've died from laughter. Really impressed at the job Weiss has done. Bichette really has them swinging the bats well so far.

Agreed! Give both of them credit for a good job so far. Like Mike pointed out a couple posts ago, the Rockies need to step it up against the stronger clubs. But I'm not knocking a good start, especially after last years finish. Go Rockies!

He's 40 years old. His last season maybe? Looking at his list of accomplishments, there's been nothing much of note in the past several years, a typical slide into retirement. His last All-Star Game was in 2004. Sad to see a great career come to an end, but the damned page always turns.

Tulo strained his shoulder in today's loss to AZ; all in all a discouraging time for Rox fans.

Yup, and May is right around the corner. May is usually a complete disaster for the Rox. I hope Tulo and Helton can return quickly, as well as Chacin pick up where he left off when he returns. Cargo is riding a horrible slump right now, and the bats are not getting timely clutch hitting. All teams have setbacks along the way, good ones overcome them. Let's see how the Rox respond with a series @ Dodgers starting tomorrow.

Great showing last night against the Dodgers! While a 12-2 railing is likely an aberration for both teams, it's encouraging to see the bats break out after a bad series in arizona. Especially against Lilly. Chatwood was serviceable and did all right at the plate as well. And maybe Cargo has broken out of his slump. Let's hope they keep this up!

I am not 100% sure, but I remember seeing MLB Tonight read a quote during the offseason that said the 2013 season will be Todd Helton's final season before retirement.
