Two weeks ago I forgot to put a post here about how the Rockies had played.  They were 2-4 that week as they were outscored 35-31.  Their record sat at 10-15 which was good for last place in the National League West, 5 games behind the Dodgers.

Sean Barker killing the ball in AAA for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,Playing Well,The Minors by chinmusic on Saturday 12 May 2007 at 9:23 pm

27 year old righty swinging Sean Barker has been crushing the baseball in AAA.  In 22 games this season, Barker is 30 for 73 (.411 avg, 1.188 OPS) with 17 runs scored, 4 homers and 15 RBIs!  Look for Barker to get a call to the Rockies if they need a corner outfielder as long as he keeps hitting.

Jeff Francis needs to start pitching better for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,Pitching BP by chinmusic on Monday 7 May 2007 at 1:37 pm

Jeff Francis had a breakout year last season for the Rockies but this year has been a rough one so far for him.  Francis is 1-4 with a 6.19 ERA and a 1.84 WHIP and those kind of numbers will not get it done for the Rockies.  In 36.1 innings so far this season, Francis has allowed 52 hits, 6 homers, walked 15 batters and has struck out 20.  The team needs him to stand up an be the ace that he was starting to look like last season.

Zach McClellan pitching well out of the bullpen for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Monday 7 May 2007 at 1:29 pm

The Rockies weren’t expecting much when they called up 28 year old rookie Zach McClellan to fill up a bullpen spot.  The Rockies pen has been decimated by injury so it almost seems like McClellan has been pitching almost every day since he was called up from the minors.  He doesn’t have a record yet but he has a sharp 2.70 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP.  In his first 10 innings of his major league career, McClellan has allowed 12 hits, walked 3 batters and whiffed 11.  If he keeps pitching like this for the Rockies he’s sure to get a lot of work.
