The over/under for Colorado Rockies’ wins in 2013 is 71.5

The over/under for Rockies’ wins in 2013 is 71.5.  The Rockies were only 64-98 (39.5%) in 2012.  The Rockies are likely going to have one of the worst starting rotations in all of baseball and it’s hard to win that way.  They did add some help for the bullpen, but the lineup will remain essentially the same in 2013.  But, if Troy Tulowitzki can stay healthy in 2013, the Rockies could be competitive a lot more.  But, the rest of the N.L. West got better over the winter.  I would have to take the under as far as Rockies’ wins go in 2013.

Walt Weiss is going to have his hands full with the Colorado Rockies in 2013

It could be a bumpy first season for 49-year old rookie manager Walt Weiss.  He is taking over a Rockies’ squad that was only 64-98 (39.5%) in 2012.  Weiss was a special assistant to Rockies’ GM Dan O’Dowd from 2002-08.  He has been a high school manager since then.  The Rockies have a pretty awful starting rotation and it’s hard to win when that is one of your biggest weaknesses.  Weiss is going to definitely get a baptism by fire with the Rockies in 2013.

The Colorado Rockies sign Giancarlo Alvarado

The Rockies have signed 35-year old righty starter/reliever Giancarlo Alvarado to a minor league deal.  He pitched in 8 games (all starts) in Japan last year and he was 1-6 with a 3.92 ERA and a 1.64 WHIP.  He has now pitched in 431 games (187 starts) in his first 17 years in the minors and he is 84-77 with 4 saves, a 3.70 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP.  It never hurts to give a guy like this a chance, but I doubt that he will help the Rockies at any point in 2013.
