8:40 PM EST. We’re going to reverse the Coors Field fade here and jump on the Rockies for this one game and let the chips fall where they may. German Marquez (RHP) is lined up for this Coors start against a Diamondbacks’ squad that is a bottom-feeder group against right-handers. We don’t trust Marquez a whole lot but we do trust him more than Shelby Miller (RHP), who is our fade target here.
You might recall a couple of years ago that Shelby Miller out his fist through the dugout wall and knocked him out for the rest of the year. The wall ended up being just fine and missed no time at all. We point that out because it shows how he can’t control his frustrations. Miller also went through an emotional stretch prior to that, where he could not throw strikes for weeks before being sent down for the rest of the season because of it. An emotionally unstable pitcher without much success getting a start at Coors Field is a recipe for complete disaster. For reference, we only need to point out that Shelby Miller has terrible numbers against Colorado batters (.857 OPS) and, unsurprisingly, a 9.88 ERA at this mile-high venue. Yeah, we;’ll take out chances here.
