Rockies 12, Astros 1; a day off for Miguel Tejada

The only good thing to say about losing 12-1 is that you can lose only one game at a time. I was joking a little bit when I said the Astros should rotate that fifth starting pitching slot between Paulino and Ortiz, but why couldn’t they share the slot in a different way? They could both plan to pitch that day. Tell Paulino he’s going the first four innings and Ortiz he’s going the next four. The rest of the bullpen gets the day off if things go well. Just a thought.

I see Miguel Tejada doesn’t need a day off, doesn’t want a day off, is too much of a man to take a day off. However, a smart manager would give him a day off, and Cooper says he plans to.
