The Colorado Rockies need more out of Nolan Arenado

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, In Need of a Slumpbuster by joelapinski on Thursday 8 August 2013 at 9:52 am

The Rockies need more out of 22-year old righty swinging 3B Nolan Arenado moving forward.  Since July 1st, Arenado has played in 31 games for the Rockies in which he is 24 of 105 (.229 avg) with 6 runs scored, 2 homers, 12 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  He has now played in 90 games overall this year for the Rockies and he is 84 of 332 (.253 avg, .688 OPS) with 29 runs scored, 9 homers, 36 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  Arenado came into this season as the Rockies’ #1 prospect according to Baseball America, so they expect more from him with the bat moving forward.

Josh Rutledge looks lost at the plate for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, In Need of a Slumpbuster by joelapinski on Friday 26 July 2013 at 1:48 pm

24-year old righty swinging 2B/SS Josh Rutledge looks lost at the plate for the Rockies.  Since June 1st, Rutledge has played in 24 games in which he is 10 for 70 (.143 avg) with 9 runs scored, 1 homer, 3 RBIs and 3 stolen bases.  He has now played in 67 games overall this year and he is 48 of 227 (.211 avg, .584 OPS) with 35 runs scored, 6 homers, 16 RBIs and 8 stolen bases.  Rutledge looked rock solid as a rookie in 2012, but he has taken a big step backwards so far in 2013.

Dexter Fowler is having a rough month in 2013 for the Colorado Rockies in May

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, In Need of a Slumpbuster by joelapinski on Friday 24 May 2013 at 11:31 am

27-year old switch-hitting CF Dexter Fowler was awesome in April for the Rockies, but he has slowed down considerably with the bat so far in May.  Fowler has played in 18 games so far in May and he is 17 of 72 (.236 avg, .563 OPS) with 10 runs scored, 0 homers, 3 RBIs and 3 stolen bases.  Fowler has now played in 44 games overall this year for the Rockies and he is 46 for 167 (.275 avg, .833 OPS) with 30 runs scored, 8 homers, 18 RBIs and 7 stolen bases.  The Rockies hope that Fowler can snap out of his funk at the plate in the near future.

Ian Stewart could be running out of time with the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, In Need of a Slumpbuster by chinmusic on Tuesday 6 September 2011 at 9:57 am

26-year old lefty swinging 3B Ian Stewart has been awful this year for the Rockies. He has played in 48 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 19 for 122 (.156 avg, .464 OPS) with 14 runs scored, 0 homers, 6 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. Those are pathetic numbers for a guy who came into this season as the Rockies’ starting 3B. Stewart has now played in 432 games in his first five years in the majors and he is 293 for 1,242 (.236 avg, .751 OPS) with 178 runs scored, 54 homers, 187 RBIs and 16 stolen bases. The Rockies are going to try to deal Stewart over the winter, hoping to at least get something for him.

The light still hasn’t went on for catcher Chris Iannetta of the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, In Need of a Slumpbuster by chinmusic on Friday 29 July 2011 at 9:39 am

28-year old righty swinging catcher Chris Iannetta is not taking advantage of the Rockies giving him the starting catcher job this year. He has played in 79 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 53 for 241 (.220 avg, .777 OPS) with 37 runs scored, 10 homers, 36 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. He has now played in 425 games in his first six years with the Rockies and he is 307 for 1,325 (.232 avg, .786 OPS) with 182 runs scored, 59 homers, 217 RBIs and 4 stolen bases. If Iannetta doesn’t show improvement the rest of this season, I think his days as the starting catcher for the Rockies could be coming to an end.

Ian Stewart is off to a rough start for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, In Need of a Slumpbuster by chinmusic on Thursday 14 April 2011 at 6:22 pm

Starting 3B Ian Stewart is hurting right now and it’s hurting his performance. Stewart has played in 8 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 1 for 17 (.059 avg, .118 OPS) with 1 stolen base. He has whiffed 9 times without a walk so far this year. When he gets healthy, Stewart is going to have to pick up the pace because Ty Wigginton (an A.L. All-Star last year) will be pushing him for ABs.

UPDATE: (4/19/2011) - The Rockies have sent Stewart to AAA. He played in 12 games for the Rockies this year and he was 2 for 26 (.077 avg, .220 OPS) with 2 runs scored, 1 stolen base and he whiffed 11 times. Stewart needs to get his act together quickly in AAA, or his old position just isn’t going to be there for him.

Todd Helton is losing it for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, In Need of a Slumpbuster by chinmusic on Wednesday 22 September 2010 at 1:50 pm

37-year old lefty swinging 1B Todd Helton appears to be running low on his gas tank. He has played in 109 games for the Rockies this year and he is 94 of 369 (.255 avg, .713 OPS) with 46 runs scored, 6 homers and 33 RBIs. It’s sad to see Helton losing his skills as a hitter that made him one of the better 1B for years. I think the Humidor is one of the biggest reasons why Helton hasn’t hit at least 20 homers in a season over his last 5 years. Helton has played in 1,921 games in his 14 years with the Rockies and he is 2,228 of 6,875 (.324 avg, .979 OPS) with 1,268 runs scored, 331 homers, 1,235 RBIs and 36 stolen bases. I think Todd Helton’s run as a Colorado Rockie could be nearing an end.

What is wrong with Todd Helton of the Colorado Rockies?

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, In Need of a Slumpbuster by chinmusic on Tuesday 15 June 2010 at 8:38 pm

36-year old lefty swinging starting 1B Todd Helton is off to a very slow start this year. He has played in 55 games for the Rockies this year and he is 49 of 192 (.255 avg, .684 OPS) with 22 runs scored, 1 homer and 11 RBIs. Helton has played 14 years for the Rockies appearing in 1,867 games in which he is 2,183 of 6,698 (.326 avg, .985 OPS) with 1,244 runs scored, 326 homers and 1,213 RBIs. I blame the Humidor and Helton’s age as the reasons he’s not hitting like he used to. The Rockies can’t make the playoffs with Helton hitting like he is right now so they need him to wake up…..and soon!

The Colorado Rockies need this trio to help out on offense

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, In Need of a Slumpbuster, The Playoffs by chinmusic on Monday 12 October 2009 at 10:54 am

Dexter Fowler and Todd Helton appeared to wake up with the bat last night but the Rockies need that to continue. Fowler is 2 for 10 with 2 RBIs in this series while Helton is 2 for 12 with 3 runs scored and 2 RBIs. But starting 2B Clint Barmes has been truly awful so far in this series as he is 0 for 10. The Rockies need all hands on the deck as they face elimination tonight so these three guys need to step up.

Yorvit Torrealba better start hitting or he is going to lose playing time for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, In Need of a Slumpbuster by chinmusic on Thursday 12 June 2008 at 12:14 pm

Yorvit Torrealba might become the Rockies’ backup catcher soon as he is clearly getting outplayed by Chris Iannetta. Torrealba has played in 39 games this season for the Rockies and he is 30 for 137 (.219 avg, .595 OPS) with 6 runs scored, 2 homers and 15 RBIs. The Rockies should have been more careful about re-signing Torrealba in the off season after his deal fell through with the Mets due to right shoulder issues. Chris Iannetta had a terrible rookie season but he’s swinging a good stick right now and it should earn him even more playing time than he is already getting. Iannetta has played in 33 games so far this season for the Rockies and he is 30 for 104 (.288 avg, .938 OPS) with 16 runs scored, 6 homers and 21 RBIs.
