Outside of arm injuries to pitchers I find injuries in baseball hilarious. It's a country club sport and these guys still find a way to get hurt.

Ball must have shown the team that he can pass block. I was already assuming he'd be able to run the ball better than McGahee or Moreno.

If Ball is truly ready to go, I don't have an issue with this move.

RB is by far the easiest position to plug in a rookie.

i just hope the Rox can keep things together for a month so that when he does comeback he can put them over the top.

Roy Oswalt could pitch Thursday. A huge lift if true. Also gets Francis out of the rotation. I love what Francis has brought to the Rockies over the years, but I don't ever want to see him in a Rockies uniform again.

I don't want to see Francis start anymore, and I also don't want Nicasio pitching anymore. Replace them with Oswalt and Pomeranz and our pitching depth would be:

1. Chacin
2. DLR
3. Oswalt
4. Chatwood
5. Pomeranz

That is a very tolerable pitching staff.

Was at the game yesterday - Chacin looked really good. Looking forward to next year when we could have this #1 pick, Chacin, and Pomeranz at the start of the rotation. I know 2 of them are maybes (Pomeranz and the #1) but if even one of them comes through, we've finally got some quality at the front of the rotation.

I'm kinda hesitant about Oswalt. Do you guys really think he will bounce back? I guess if anything he's got some great experience he can share with the young guys.

Nugs have a new GM - He came in to the Pelicans right after they ditched Byron Scott...so probably can cross Scott off the coaching hunt list.

The velocity is back for Oswalt, I think he can pitch well. He's probably not an ace anymore, but a decent top three pitcher, meaning he's probably better than anybody we have.

Not sure about Pomeranz. As a positive, his FIP is very low down in the Springs, which gives me hope that he's pitching better than his numbers would indicate.

Lots of rumors in this article, but in a nutshell -

1) McGahee was cut because of his health, not the OTAs and not because of Ball
2) Hillman will be the opening day RB.

Don't know if I believe it all, but it's material that goes against what we all thought

God I"d be scared of Ball. I've seen way too many slow, straight ahead B10 backs fail in the NFL.

He's not necessarily slow, he ran a 4.59. That's faster than Alfred Morris and its the same as Frank Gore.

And I wouldn't consider Montee a straight line runner either. Has pretty good vision and agility

Beanie Wells and Shonn Greene both ran a 4.62, Javon Ringer ran a 4.56, they, like Montee Ball are B10 plodders. Big, slow, one cut guys that bang it up inside for a couple of yards. No real explosiveness, not enough speed to get lateral. The B10 has been pumping out disappointing backs since Ron Dayne and (the most overrated player ever) Eddie George.

I'd put a lot of money on Ball as a dissapointment.

Beanie has mental/durabillity issues, Shonn has no explosiveness (zero), and Ringer was never highly touted.

And I agree the Big "Ten" has produced very little and is overrated as hell, but I have a feeling Montee has something special.

He doesn't have nearly as many issues as the players you compared him to (and he's going to an organization who has a passing game unlike Arizona/NYJ/Titans)

I'm beginning to think that NBA playoff games are fixed. The two best teams in the Finals - why can't they play a close game?

Any pre-camp NFL picks?

Because the Heat's big 3 decide not to show every other game.

Ringer did a great job in college, he mainly got dropped because of B10 sterotypes, IMO. I didn't see that much wrong with him.

Anyway, Ball is a good athlete and I think he's smooth in the open field, but he's not explosive. I don't see it in him.

Hopefully Alex Gibbs will return us to the days of a cadaver being able to get 1K rushing here.

Stupid McDaniels!

Awesome article and videotape of Gibbs here. I am stoked he is back, except that I really don't think Ball and the other guys we have on this roster exactly fit into his scheme anymore.

I wouldn’t be shocked if the Broncos went out and still tried to trade for a RB after letting McGahee go. I'm hearing the McGahee cut saved us $3.5M and specifically $2M this year. They could also use that money to get Abraham, which would be a great move as well.

NBA - here's hoping the Spurs close this out tonight. Can't stand LeBron.

I rarely watch the NBA....but when I turn it on, it usually happens to be a Heat game that's on.

I can't believe how much that team gets away with.

I hope San Antonio puts them away tonight, and that Chris Bosh (one of the biggest POS whiners in the league) NEVER sniffs another Championship again.

Definitely rooting for the Spurs.
