The Curse of Jorge's Groin

The redoubtable poster yclept puck over at Baseball Think Factory is reporting that Jorge de la Rosa is out for the National League Divisional Series, a victim of his own groin. This is bad news for a couple of reasons. First of all, it would be nice to have a lefty to throw at Utley, Howard and Ibanez, and this makes the Rockies' rotation completely northpaw.

It also means that Jason Hammel would be pitching Game Four - I assume - at Coors Field, and Hammel had a 5.73 ERA at home this year, as opposed to a sterling 3.13 on the road. Let's hope the Rockies can wrap this thing up in three, like they did two years ago. If not, we could be seeing a lot of Josh Fogg on Sunday night.
