Rockies get older, more fun

The Colorado Rockies have signed RHP Russ Ortiz and 1B Jason Giambi.

Ortiz was with Triple-A Scranton before opting out of his deal last week. The Big G was with Oakland and was released. He’ll play in Triple-A until Sept. 1. Hey, if he gets a few hits off the bench down the stretch it’s worth the price as gets only the prorated minimum from the Rockies.


As for the media game, I think the final was 13-2 New York. We avenged our loss last season in fine fashion. I think all of us contributed in some way, which made it a lot of fun. Tyler and Bob Klapisch did fine work on the mound and we had the bats working. It was great to play hardball again, especially on a big-league field.

Our squad:

Record: Pete Caldera, Bob Klapisch. Ledger: Marc Carig. Newsday: Ken Davidoff, Erik Boland. Times: Jack Curry, Tyler Kepner. News: Mark Feinsand, Pete Botte, Anthony McCarron, John Harper. SI: Tom Verducci. Bryan Hoch.

Ken was the GM and helped organize the team. Anthony was the manager. Thanks to the Red Sox for getting the field ready and being such gracious hosts.
