"We hit some balls good today, we hit some balls on the button," Terry Collins said after Wednesday's loss to the Marlins. "There's not much you can do when you're hitting them at people. We didn't get much going."
To be fair, it can't be easy going from hitting in Coors Field, where a light pop up can carry for a home run, to facing Miami's pitching staff, which was been incredible of late. In the last three days, which has been an offensive wasteland, they faced starting pitchers with 1.99, 2.62 and 2.68 ERAs. I'm not making excuses, a loss is a loss. But, it can be foolish to make knee-jerk, emotional decisions based on extreme situations; and transitioning from the light air of Coors Field to a collection of early Cy Young contenders riding a humid and unbelievable hot streak may not be the best time to dissect rosters and resumes. Instead, I want to see how their bats rebound heading back home to take on a different set of opponents.
