I actually don't think this makes any sense for the Rockies at all. Why would they want to pay a terrible pitcher like Livan Hernandez for the rest of the season?

Cause we play the Dbacks 9 times still before the end of the season. If we can take 7 of 9 we have a chance at the division

I'd rather plug in Hernandez than de la Rosa in the fifth spot of my rotation.
He can eat innings and, once in a while, he'll give your team a chance to win.

Don't be ridiculous. They are 11 games under .500 and 7.5 games back of the D-Backs and 5.5 back of the Dodgers. Unless they go on some kind of fluke run again, they have no chance.

And I think you're missing the most important part of all of this. Livan Hernandez sucks.

He was 10-8 or something. And thats in a good division. It doesn't matter how many under 500 they are 7.5 is doable they still play the dbacks and dodgers a bunch. Neither of those teams are any good

But both of them are much better than the Rockies.

And you're citing his W-L record as a reason that he's useful? :-X

Here are the Rockies' playoff odds:

10-8 with a 5.48 ERA and a 1.63 WHIP. That is not good.

If the D'backs could hit, or if the Dodgers could get their head out of their rectum, they could/should both be cantering away with that division.

They just haven't yet to the extent that they should.

I suppose there's better ways to waste $2 million. :-[

At least he'll throw innings unlike Ramon Ortiz did.
