The Colorado Rockies need Kazuo Matsui to pick the pace back up

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,In Need of a Slumpbuster by chinmusic on Wednesday 12 September 2007 at 7:15 pm

Kazuo Matsui was outstanding in the first half of the season but he’s been average in the 2nd half.  Since the All-Star Break, Matsui has played in 46 games and he is 47 for 175 (.269 avg, .687 OPS) with 33 runs scored, 1 homer, 13 RBIs and 14 stolen bases.  For the season, Matsui has played in 92 games and he is hitting .291 (.754 OPS) with 72 runs scored, 4 homers, 34 RBIs and 30 stolen bases.

The Colorado Rockies have a couple of players not playing up to their ability

Jeff Baker, Chris Iannetta and Jamey Carroll have all had tough first halves.  Baker is struggling because he just isn’t getting enough playoff time to stay sharp.  Baker is only hitting .230 with 9 runs scored, 2 homers and 7 RBIs in only 100 atbats this season.  Jamey Carroll has also been pretty bad with the stick in his hands this season.  Carroll is hitting only .212 with 25 runs scored, 1 homer and 7 RBIs in 132 atbats this season.  Chris Iannetta was given the starting job at catcher when the season started but he lost it to Yorvit Torrealba because of his poor play.  Iannetta is hitting only .198 with 14 runs scored, 2 homers and 15 RBIs in 131 atbats.  The Rockies should do the right thing and send the kid to AAA to get his confidence back.

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.

Jamey Carroll is awful so far this season for the Colorado Rockies

The Rockies signed Jamey Carroll to a nice contract after his good season last year for the Rockies.  But, Carroll is proving so far that he isn’t worth the money that the Rockies have given him.  In 35 games this season, Carroll is 16 for 89 (.180 avg, .507 OPS) and he’s scored 12 runs, has 3 RBIs and has stolen 2 bases.  If Carroll doesn’t start to hit soon, he will be sitting on the bench a lot this season.

The Colorado Rockies need more from Troy Tulowitzki

Troy Tulowitzki has had big problems with the bat in his hands and that better change soon if he wants to stay in the major leagues.  In 16 games this season Tulowitzki is 11 for 57 (.193 avg, .509 OPS) with 4 runs scored and 4 RBIs.  He has also whiffed 16 times already this season and that’s way to many for the style of hitter that Tulowitzki is.  Clint Barmes has been brought up by the Rockies to replace Kaz Matsui on the roster so Tulowitzki better get his act together quickly.

Chris Ianetta off to a poor start for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,In Need of a Slumpbuster by chinmusic on Thursday 19 April 2007 at 11:36 pm

Ianetta is off to a rough start in his first 8 games of the season as he’s only hitting .120 with a .418 OPS.  He’s 3 for 25 with 3 runs scored and 3 RBIs so far this season.  He’s been overmatched at the plate as he’s already whiffed 12 times this season.  Ianetta was the starting catcher going in to the season, but Yorvit Torrealba has played just as much as he has and Torrealba is playing well.  So, if Ianetta doesn’t start hitting he will likely return to AAA rather than sit on the Rockies’ bench.

The Colorado Rockies have a few players that are slumping

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,In Need of a Slumpbuster by chinmusic on Thursday 12 April 2007 at 12:47 am

Troy Tulowitzki, Willy Taveras and Chris Iannetta are all having rough starts to their season.  Tulowitzki is 6 for 30 (.200 avg, 540 OPS) with 3 runs scored and 2 RBIs.  He’s also had a big problem with K’s as he already whiffed 11 times this season.  Look for Jamey Carroll to play more at shortstop if Tulowitzki continues to have problems with the bat.  Taveras is only 4 for 24 (.167 avg, .467 OPS) with 4 runs.  He also has had a whiffing problem as he has K’d 10 times already this season.  Iannetta is only 2 for 18 (.111 avg, .317 OPS) with 3 runs scored and 3 RBIs.  Iannetta has been overmatched so far this season as he already has whiffed 8 times this season.  Look for Yorvit Torrealba to catch a little more if Iannetta doesn’t start to hit a little.
