Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,Injuries by chinmusic on Friday 22 June 2007 at 10:25 am

The Rockies have lost rookie pitcher Zack McClellan for the remainder of the season after he underwent arthroscopic on his right shoulder.  McClellan had a rough introduction to the majors this season as he was 1-0 with a 5.79 ERA and a 1.79 WHIP.  In 12 games this season he pitched 14 innings and he allowed 20 hits, walked 5 batters and whiffed 13.

Kaz Matsui is on fire so far this season proving that his good work for them in 2006 was not a fluke.  Matsui has been banged up a little bit this season but it hasn’t stopped him from swinging a good bat.  In 31 games this season, Matsui is 40 for 125 (.320 avg, .834 OPS) with 26 runs scored, 2 homers, 16 RBIs and 11 stolen bases.  With Matsui in the lineup the Rockies have taken off with him getting on base for the big guys.  Look for that to continue.

The Colorado Rockies release Steve Finley

Steve Finley just plain and simple…..didn’t play well enough to keep his spot on the Rockies.  He played in 43 games this season and he was 17 for 94 (.181 avg, .490 OPS) with 9 runs scored, 1 homer and 2 RBIs.  The Rockies felt it was time to get some of their young players the at bats that Finley was wasting.  They won’t miss Finley one bit.

Ryan Spilboroghs is ripping the baseball for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,Playing Well by chinmusic on Tuesday 12 June 2007 at 3:00 pm

Ryan Spilboroghs is smoking hot with the bat lately.  In his last 4 games, he is 5 for 14 (.357 avg, 1.143 OPS) with 2 runs scored, 2 homers and 7 RBIs.  His season average has risen to .324 and his OPS is now .824 on the season.  Even with his recent hot streak, it will be hard for Spilboroghs to find enough playing time on the Rockies unless someone gets hurt.

The Colorado Rockies have been hot as of late

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,Weekly Results by chinmusic on Monday 11 June 2007 at 5:23 pm

The Rockies are 8-5 the last two weeks as they’ve outscored their opponents 64-58.  The Rockies pitching has improved lately and their hitting is getting them just enough runs to win.  The Rockies enter this week with a 31-32 record which has them in 4th place in the National League West, 5.5 games behind the Padres and D-Backs.

The Colorado Rockies are getting nothing from their catchers

I wonder if the Rockies are going to give Javy Lopez a call to see if he stayed in shape because their catchers have been pathetic with a bat in their hands so far this season.  The Rockies had high hopes for rookie Chris Iannetta and he’s been awful so far this season.  In 31 games this year, he is 16 for 87 (.184 avg, .628 OPS) with 9 runs scored, 1 homer and 10 RBIs.  He also has whiffed an amazing 29 times already as he’s often looked overmatched at the plate.  Yorvit Torrealba hasn’t been a whole lot better this season.  In 35 games, he’s 26 for 121 (.215 avg, .553 OPS) with 6 runs scored, 1 homer and 17 RBIs.  Look for the Rockies to make a move soon if neither of these guys pick it up with their bats.

Willy Tavares is heating up for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,Playing Well by chinmusic on Sunday 3 June 2007 at 8:26 pm

Willy Tavares is starting to heat up for the Colorado Rockies and the whole offense is benefitting from it.  In his last 19 games, Tavares is 25 for 70 (.357 avg, .800 OPS) with 11 runs scored, 5 RBIs and 6 stolen bases.  Tavares has seen his season average rise to .320.  If Tavares keeps hitting like he has recently, the Rockies are going to score a lot of runs.
