Alex White has not looked good for the Colorado Rockies so far

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Pitching BP by chinmusic on Tuesday 6 September 2011 at 10:00 am

23-year old righty starting pitcher Alex White has had a rough time so far for the Rockies….but it’s really, really early. White has pitched in 3 games (all starts) for the Rockies and he is 1-1 with a 7.41 ERA and a 1.71 WHIP. He has now pitched in 6 games (all starts) for the Indians and Rockies and he is 2-1 with a 5.63 ERA and a 1.63 WHIP. White has had issues with his control as he has walked 19 batters in his first 32 innings in the majors. If he tightens up his control a bit, he will be fine for the Rockies.

Aaron Cook has been awful for the Colorado Rockies so far this year

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Pitching BP by chinmusic on Thursday 11 August 2011 at 9:59 am

32-year old righty starting pitcher Aaron Cook has been pretty awful for the Rockies this year. He has pitched in 11 games (all starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 2-6 with a 5.05 ERA and a 1.64 WHIP. Cook has give up 77 hits and he has walked 25 batters in only 62 1/3 innings so far this year, which is pathetic. He also isn’t fooling many hitters as he has only whiffed 23 batters this year. Cook has pitched in 231 games (200 starts) in his first 10 years in the majors and he is 71-64 with a 4.44 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP. The Rockies need Cook to start pitching like he did earlier in his career.

Rafael Betancourt has been pretty bad for the Colorado Rockies this year

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Pitching BP by chinmusic on Monday 14 June 2010 at 1:07 pm

35-year old righty reliever Rafael Betancourt was awesome last season for the Rockies pitching in 32 games (0 starts) in which he was 3-1 with 1 save, a 1.78 ERA and a 0.87 WHIP. But Betancourt has been nowhere near as good this season for the Rockies. He has pitched in 25 games (0 starts) for the Rockies this year and he is 1-1 with a 5.48 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP. Betancourt has only walked 3 batters this season while whiffing 27 batters in only 21 1/3 innings so his stuff has been there. But he’s not missing enough bats as he has given up 28 hits already this season. I think Betancourt will get his act together soon because his major league track record shows it will.

The Colorado Rockies have a couple of pitchers that need to step up

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,Pitching BP by chinmusic on Thursday 12 July 2007 at 10:03 am

The Rockies need Josh Fogg and Tom Martin to pitch better in the 2nd half of the season.  Fogg is 4-6 with a 5.36 ERA and a 1.55 WHIP so far this season.  Fogg will need to start missing more bats with his pitches if he wants to have more success in the 2nd half of the season.  He has allowed 105 hits and 12 homers in 87.1 innings this season and he will need to improve on that if he wants to keep his starting job.  Tom Martin must thank God everyday that he is left handed because that is the only reason he has pitched in the majors so long.  Martin is 0-0 with a 5.25 ERA and a 1.54 WHIP so far this season.  He has allowed 31 hits in 24 innings this season and that’s way too many.

Taylor Buchholz has been pathetic so far for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,Pitching BP by chinmusic on Wednesday 23 May 2007 at 10:00 pm

Buchholz was part of the off-season haul for Jason Jennings, but he’s off to a rough start.  In 10 games (5 starts), Buchholz is 2-2 with a 5.94 ERA and a 1.65 WHIP.  In 33.1 innings, he has allowed 45 hits but he’s only walked 10 batters which is pretty good.  The Rockies need him to pitch better soon or they might need to go with someone else in the rotation.

Jeff Francis needs to start pitching better for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,Pitching BP by chinmusic on Monday 7 May 2007 at 1:37 pm

Jeff Francis had a breakout year last season for the Rockies but this year has been a rough one so far for him.  Francis is 1-4 with a 6.19 ERA and a 1.84 WHIP and those kind of numbers will not get it done for the Rockies.  In 36.1 innings so far this season, Francis has allowed 52 hits, 6 homers, walked 15 batters and has struck out 20.  The team needs him to stand up an be the ace that he was starting to look like last season.

LaTroy Hawkins pitching poorly for the Colorado Rockies so far this season

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,Pitching BP by chinmusic on Thursday 12 April 2007 at 12:52 am

The Rockies signed LaTroy Hawkins to be their top setup man but it’s starting to look like he can’t be trusted in that role.  He is 0-2 with a 9.00 ERA and a 2.25 WHIP in the early going of the 2007 season.  He has pitched 4 innings so far and he’s allowed 8 hits and 4 earned runs.  If he doesn’t shape up soon he’ll go from setup man to mop-up man.
