DENVER – It might be news to a few loyal Rockies fans, but Carlos Gonzalez has not always been with the Colorado Rockies. For some, it may be a hazy memory of a time before he became the player known simply as CarGo.

Admit it, you just don’t care anymore. When Matt Holliday drilled a three-run homer to put the St. Louis Cardinals up 3-0 over the Colorado Rockies in the bottom of the 1st inning, the game was over.

Watching Matt Holliday hit home runs in September brings back memories. A few years ago, as the nights became more crisp, and the sun went down a little earlier, Colorado Rockies fans were confused.
