After a disastrous series in Miami that saw the offense go AWOL against the Marlins, the Rockies have the National League’s worst batting average (.221) while leading the circuit in home runs (37).

With most of the lineup hitting under .240 and averaging nearly 10 strikeouts per game, the Rockies’ inability to string hits together keeps them from putting up crooked numbers when they need them most.

Host Shawn Drotar (Mile High Sports Radio) and guest Erik Trujillo (Mile High Sports Magazine) discuss how long they’ll willing to wait on the bats to heat up — and explain how it’s taxing an already overused bullpen.
