The Phillies starting rotation had Kevin Millwood returning rather than testing free agency. Randy Wolf and Vicente Padilla had become strong, veteran pitchers. Brett Myers put up some impressive numbers and seemed to be maturing more and more with each passing day. Then, the Phillies added Eric Milton and the rotation became one of the best in baseball. Now, the Phillies will start Brian Powell and Paul Abbott in back-to-back games this weekend. Ouch!

Winning just one game at Coors Field this season, the Giants look to get a head start and to hope for Jesse Foppert to come around. The Rockies are the best home team and the Giants are the best road team, and it was definitely a showdown today in Colorado.
