Hate to admit it but Lansford is turning out to be a pretty good hitting coach.

....which means he'll probably leave soon

so true.

Not that the Rockies are good, but I can only remember seeing them on ESPN twice. And only because they were playing St Louis or some other big market.

I'm actually starting to hate ESPN more and more. Every time I go to their page it's all about the NBA, some TMZ drama articles about some athlete agreeing/disagreeing with politics, or feeble attempts at deciphering legal matters involving players.

It's actually started to turn me off from following sports.

Well, Red Sox/Yankees get ratings. If you work for ESPN and has to put a game, you're gonna put match up like Padres/Astros?

I don't think I watch ESPN much anyways, I watch MLB tonight instead of baseball tonight. NFL stuff on NFL channel, etc. I probably watch ESPN for the live games. MLB Network tries to show different teams, but it's Boston/NY today.

I don't fault ESPN so much for doing it, but rather baseball for not pushing for exposure for other markets, because probably half of ESPN's telecasts have either the Red Sox/Yankees.

I think that "Big Market" stuff is kind of a self fulfilling prophecy. The NFL has marque teams in Green bay and Pittsburgh, yet the NBA and MLB can't drum up interest in an OKC final?

ESPN is also content to pimp soccer, which won't outdraw a New Orleans/Charlotte game.

How's his contract?

He's probably still our best pitcher, but seeing how we suck d, moving him wouldn't be all that bad. It just comes down to getting the right value for him.

Move him. Flyball pitchers just do not work at Coors Field. Hang on to him for a few more weeks and wait for teams to get desperate as the deadline approaches. He'll be the cheaper alternative to guys like Greinke and Dempster. Someone will bite.

Went to two of the scorching temperature games in Washington. Baseball in Washington is miserable. Don't know how people can do it out here. Weather in DC = the suck. Why anyone wants to be a politician and live in DC is beyond me.
