Apparently, the team meeting Walt Weiss held worked

Aug 9, 2013, 10:45 PM EDT

The Rockies have lost five games in a row and nine of their last ten, which prompted manager Walt Weiss to call a team meeting earlier today. The details, via Troy Renck:

He challenged the players to compete and play hard. He’s not one to criticize players through the media or call guys out. He wants them to take ownership as he certainly did as a player.

[...]

Weiss was direct in his responses to the media, looking straight ahead. He’s had enough of the streak.

The Rockies responded by jumping on Pirates starter Francisco Liriano, who entered the night with a 2.02 ERA. They scored four in the first inning five in the second, and one in the third. Liriano left after recording just seven outs, surrendering 12 hits and two walks while striking out only one batter. The ten runs allowed pushed his ERA all the way up to 2.83.

    Team meetings: the new inefficiency. If the Rockies hold at least one team meeting per day for the rest of the season, they might make a playoff run after all.

    Fact: Walt Weiss and Walter White have never been seen together.
