The Rockies come to town for their usual August jaunt to Philadelphia, amid zero fanfare. Really, here’s what we have to look at tonight.
-How does Ethan Martin fair as a starter? He seems cut more from the cloth of a reliever.
-Can Jimmy Rollins heed the call from Ryne Sandberg and take more walks, raising his OBP?
-How does Carlos Ruiz fare hitting 2nd?
Lineup: Rollins SS, Ruiz C, Utley 2B, Brown LF, Ruf RF, Asche 3B, Mayberry CF, Wells RF, Martin P
