Good karma for Lawrence?

Former Northwestern State Demon Brian Lawrence once again has a home in Major League Baseball. After missing all of the 2006 season because of a torn labrum, Lawrence has agreed in principle with the Colorado Rockies on a 1-year contract worth $750,000 pending completion of a physical.

Outwardly it seems strange -- a pitcher looking to overcome an injury goes to Coors Field to revive his career. But Lawrence's decision to pitch in Colorado could bring the former Demon some good karma. In 2005, Lawrence, a Colorado Springs, Colo., native lost the first 1-0 game in Coors Field history.

Should the right-hander regain his trademark sinker, however, his decision should be a boost for himself and for the Rockies.
