As this is the 100th anniversary of the Rite of Spring, it still seems fitting to me to make the comparison. I hope we have all filed the necessary legal paperwork to sacrifice our virgins and ensure a successful season for the Rockies. If not, you better get on that, the government can get a bit heavy-handed with the fines and what not for unauthorized sacrifices.

So far, though, there's nothing to complain about yesterday's results, even if they are without meaning. The reason for the sacrifices to be made are still churning underneath the frozen surface, though:

Troy Tulowitzki's leg, it needs to be healthy. That might require a couple of virgins to the baseball gods right there.
