to play the role of spoiler against the Colorado Rockies for the second straight September when the National League West clubs open a three-game series on Friday night.Giants right-hander Chris Stratton (9-9 Ryne Sandberg Jersey , 4.99 ERA), bombed in back-to-back starts against the Rockies earlier this season, and Rockies left-hander Tyler Anderson (6-8, 4.89), winless in his last 11 starts, draw the starting assignments in the opener.The Rockies (81-65) begin a nine-game trip in first place in the NL West, having moved a healthy 4 1/2 games up on third-place Arizona (77-70) with a 10-3 shellacking of the Diamondbacks Thursday at Colorado to complete a 3-1 series win.Article continues below ...The Los Angeles Dodgers (80-67) are in second place, 1 1/2 games behind the Rockies.The Rockies will visit Los Angeles and Arizona for three games apiece next week to complete its road — and NL West — schedule. Colorado finishes the season at home against Philadelphia and Washington.The Rockies found themselves battling the Diamondbacks, Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers in mid-September last season when they went into San Francisco and lost two straight to a Giants team well out of contention.Colorado then had to scramble just to claim the second wild-card spot in the NL by one game.This year’s San Francisco club finds itself in the same situation, having lost a West Coast era-record 11 straight.Stratton has started two of those games and pitched pretty well in 4-1 and 4-3 losses to the New York Mets and Milwaukee Brewers, respectably. He allowed just seven hits in 11 innings in those games.That was a marked improvement over the 13 runs and 19 hits he gave up in 9-8 and 8-1 losses in a home-and-home sequence with the Rockies bridging June and July. Nolan Arenado homered in both of the games. The star third baseman hasn’t been the only Colorado player who has rocked the 28-year-old Stratton in the past. Ian Desmond (.625), Trevor Story (.556), Charlie Blackmon (.500), DJ LeMahieu (.500) and Gerardo Parra (.500) all have .500 or better career batting averages against Stratton.He has gone 1-1 with a 7.89 ERA in five games Billy Williams Jersey , including four starts, in his career against Colorado.Anderson will face a Giants team that has hit even worse than he has pitched of late.The 28-year-old hasn’t won since July 4 and now leads the NL in home runs allowed with 29.He was taken deep by the Giants’ Gorkys Hernandez in a 9-8 Rockies home win on Sept. 3. Anderson did not get the win, pulled after 5 1/3 innings having allowed three runs and six hits.Anderson has made six starts in his career against the Giants and went 1-2 with a 4.25 ERA.Hernandez has two career homers against him in 10 career at-bats.The Giants enter the series having scored one run in five straight home games. They’ve totaled just nine home runs (none in the last three outings) during their 0-for-September run of 11 games.

Hey bub, it’s an action shot from last year’s Rule 5 draft.Kim Klement-USA TODAY SportsUPDATE 2:14 p.m.R.I.P., Winter Meetings 2018UPDATE, 11:42 a.m. of an UPDATE, 11:10 a.m.In what is becoming a familiar scenario with Rick Hahn, the White Sox drafted Jon Lester Jersey , then traded, its Rule 5 pick.The team selected pitcher Jordan Romano from the Toronto Blue Jays — then dealt him to the Texas Rangers, in a trade announced a half-hour after the pick.It’s the second straight year that Hahn has swapped his Rule 5 pick to the Rangers.UPDATE, 11:33 a.m.Also, the White Sox signed infielder/outfielder L谩zaro Leal. He’s 22, and he comes via the Mexican League. Scroll down for more details, as Michael Kenny has some good info about Leal in the comments.UPDATE, 11:24 a.m.So, back to the important stuff: Bryce Harper. While the number of sneering tweets over the White Sox’s pursuit of Harper intensifies, Bullet Bob Nightengale clocks in with this juicy bit. (And if it comes from Nightengale, you know two things: 1. There’s likely an egregious misspelling 2. It’s straight from the front office’s mouth)UPDATE, 11:15 a.m.And that’s it! The White Sox decline their pick in the second round of the Rule 5. Gotta leave room for Bryce Harper, Manny Machado and Yasmani Grandal.And also ...So, it’s almost like the Rule 5 draft didn’t even happen.I wonder how pissed off Jordan Guerrero is this year.UPDATE http://www.chicagocubsteamshop.com/authentic-david-ross-jersey , 9:48 a.m.The Los Angeles Dodgers have taken Joe Kelly off the board for a very reasonable $8 million per. So the 11% of you (fourth-place answer) from yesterday’s poll of who the Chicago White Sox would sign first, well, you get a copy of the home game.The Rule 5 draft, in which the Chicago White Sox are expected to participate for at least one pick, but are not contractually obligated to no matter how desperate we are for new players to get excited about beyond Iv谩n Nova, begins Thursday at 11 a.m. CT.Dogged and dastardly offseason scribe whisoxman20051917 kicked ass all over the Rule 5 draft last week, with profiles on the top hitting and pitching prospects. Chances are, if you get news of the White Sox’s pick and just can’t wait for the breathless and exhaustive new post we’ll publish on the player, a significant writeup on him will be found in either one of those stories.Meanwhile, here’s hoping for a heading-out-of-town trade or two from Rick and Kenny, or at least a solid lead on a prospective free agent. Knowing that the White Sox are basically in on every free agent ever dating back to KenHarrelsonCurtFloodAndyMessersmith is cool and all, but I bet to a one we’d trade a trillion trade rumors tweets for just one single solitary new South Sider.Fingers crossed!
