Blogged under Awards,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by chinmusic on Tuesday 23 November 2010 at 4:25 pm

26-year old righty starting pitcher Udaldo Jimenez finished 3rd in the voting for the N.L. Cy Young Award. Jimenez started 33 games for the Rockies last season and he was 19-8 with a 2.88 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP. He has now pitched in 117 games (116 starts) in his first 5 years with the Rockies and he is 50-36 with a 3.52 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP. I wouldn’t be shocked at all to see him win a Cy Young or two in his career as he has outstanding stuff.

UPDATE: (12/1/2010) – Ubaldo Jimenez has also finished 23rd in the voting for the N.L. MVP Award.

The Rockies have two All-Stars. 25-year old shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and 26-year old righty starting pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez are the two guys. Tulowitzki has played in 62 games this season for the Rockies and he is 72 of 235 (.306 avg, .877 OPS) with 47 runs scored, 9 homers, 34 RBIs and 7 RBIs. He will have to miss his first All-Star Game appearance due to injury. Ubaldo Jimenez deserves to be the N.L. starting pitcher in my opinion despite his recent performance. Jimenez has pitched in 17 games (all starts) for the Rockies this year and he is 14-1 with a 2.27 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP. He has only given up 84 hits in 119 innings pitched so far this season as he has been downright nasty. This will be Jimenez’ first appearance in the All-Star Game.

30-year old lefty swinging RF Brad Hawpe finished tied with Jeremy Affeldt and Chris Coghlan for 28th in the voting for the N.L. MVP Award. Hawpe played in 145 games for the Rockies last season and he was 143 for 501 (.285 avg, .903 OPS) with 82 runs scored, 23 homers and 86 RBIs. Hawpe has now played in 728 games in his six years with the Rockies and he is 683 for 2,414 (.283 avg, .875 OPS) with 438 runs scored, 111 homers, 427 RBIs and 11 stolen bases. Hawpe is one the trade block for the Rockies because of how much jack he makes but the Rockies should really think about keeping him as he is a solid middle of the order bat.

26-year old righty closer Huston Street of the Colorado Rockies finished in a tie for 25th in the MVP Voting in the N.L. with Justin Upton and Ryan Zimmerman.

He only allowed 43 hits in 61 2/3 innings last season for the Rockies while whiffing 70 batters showing that he has adapted well to both Coors Field and the National League. Street has now pitched in 311 games (0 starts) in his 5-year major league career and he is 25-13 with 129 saves, a 2.91 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP. The Rockies have finally found the lockdown type closer that they have been looking for in Street.

36-year old lefty swinging 1B Todd Helton finished 13th in the voting for the N.L. MVP Award. He played in 151 games for the Rockies last season and he was 177 for 544 (.325 avg, .904 OPS) with 79 runs scored, 15 homers and 86 RBIs. Helton has now played in 1,812 games in his 13 years with the Rockies and he is 2,134 for 6,506 (.328 avg, .994 OPS) with 1,222 runs scored, 325 homers, 1,202 RBIs and 36 stolen bases. The Rockies are glad that Helton appears to be over his back problems but he’s still unlikely to regain the power that once made him one of the most feared hitters in the N.L.

25-year old righty swinging shortstop Troy Tulowitzki finished fifth in the voting for the N.L. MVP Award. He played in 151 games for the Rockies last season and he was 161 for 543 (.297 avg, .930 OPS) with 101 runs scored, 32 homers, 92 RBIs and 20 stolen bases. Tulowitzki has now played 4 years for the Rockies in which he has played in 432 games. In those games, Tulowitzki is 460 for 1,625 (.283 avg, .831 OPS) with 268 runs scored, 65 homers, 243 RBIs and 31 stolen bases. As long as Tulowitzki stays healthy he will be a player that the Rockies will be able to build around as only Hanley Ramirez is a better shortstop than he is in the N.L.

When Jim Tracy took over the Rockies they were 18-28 (39.1%). He then whipped them into shape to the tune of a 74-42 (63.8%) record after taking over driving them to the playoffs. For Tracy’s efforts he won the Manager of the Year Award in the National League. The Rockies then rewarded Tracy will a new three year contract which was money well spent.
