Hope Springs Eternal: Rockies in July

Colorado Rockies' Yorvit Torrealba points to the sky as he crosses home plate after hitting a solo home run off Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Chad Billingsley to lead off the third inning of a baseball game in Denver on Sunday, July 29, 2007.  The opening day of Broncos camp is front page news and the top of the hour story each year at this time but something has interfered, taking the edge off of the near religious event; it is the end of July and the Colorado Rockies are relevant in the National League West pennant race. After thumping the Dodgers on Faith day at the ball park (and nearly blowing it in the top of the ninth), the Rox are showing signs of making it a battle all the way to end this year. Dare we dream?
