Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by chinmusic on Saturday 18 June 2011 at 6:09 pm

24-year old lefty swinging CF Charlie Blackmon is off to an outstanding start to his major league career. He has played in 10 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 16 for 39 (.410 avg, .846 OPS) with 5 runs scored, 0 homers, 6 RBIs and 5 stolen bases. If Blackmon keeps hitting like he is right now, the Rockies might decide to send Dexter Fowler to the minors when they activate him off the D.L. Fowler has played in 57 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 50 for 210 (.238 avg, .688 OPS) with 33 runs scored, 0 homers, 18 RBIs and 2 stolen bases (he has been caught stealing six times).

Jason Giambi still has something left in the tank for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by chinmusic on Friday 10 June 2011 at 10:05 am

40-year old lefty swinging 1B Jason Giambi still appears to have something left in the gas tank. Giambi has played in 25 games so far this year for the Rockies and he is 10 for 44 (.227 avg, .950 OPS) with 7 runs scored, 6 homers and 14 RBIs. On May 19th against the Phillies, Giambi went 3 for 5 with 3 runs scored, 3 homers and 7 RBIs! The Rockies have really benefitted from signing Giambi three years ago as he has been a real asset off the bench for them. In his three years with the Rockies, Giambi is 60 for 244 (.246 avg, .836 OPS) with 28 runs scored, 14 homers, 61 RBIs and 2 stolen bases.

Seth Smith is hitting really well for the Colorado Rockies so far this year

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by chinmusic on Monday 30 May 2011 at 11:25 am

28-year old lefty swinging outfielder Seth Smith has been hitting well and he’s been very consistent with the stick this year. Smith has played in 43 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 44 for 145 (.303 avg, .902 OPS) with 25 runs scored, 5 homers, 22 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. It’s too bad that Smith usually struggles against lefty pitchers because I would like to see what kind of numbers he could put up with 500 ABs in a year.

Todd Helton is playing well for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by chinmusic on Tuesday 17 May 2011 at 9:07 am

37-year old lefty swinging 1B Todd Helton is playing well for the Colorado Rockies so far this year. Last season, Helton played in only 118 games in which he was 102 for 398 (.256 avg, .729 OPS) with 48 runs scored, 8 homers and 37 RBIs. Many thought Helton was near the end of he line, even the Rockies did as they signed Ty Wigginton last winter, just in case. Helton has played in 35 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 39 for 121 (.322 avg, .916 OPS) with 17 runs scored, 9 doubles, 6 homers and 19 RBIs. The Rockies hope that Helton’s back holds up because they need his bat.

Jonathan Herrera is making the most of his P.T. with the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by chinmusic on Tuesday 3 May 2011 at 6:19 pm

With Ian Stewart and Jose Lopez off to very slow starts, 26-year old switch-hitting Jonathan Herrera has gotten a lot of P.T. at 2B and he’s making the most of it. Herrera has played in 21 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 21 for 70 (.300 avg, .830 OPS) with 10 runs scored, 1 homer, 5 RBIs and 4 stolen bases. Herrera is also showing an outstanding eye at the plate as he has walked 16 times already this year while whiffing 8 times. I have a feeling that Herrera might just get to keep his starting job as long as his bat doesn’t slow down.

Todd Helton is off to a good start for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by chinmusic on Wednesday 27 April 2011 at 7:33 am

37-year old lefty swinging 1B Todd Helton looked like he was toast in 2010. He played in 118 games last season for the Rockies and he was 102 of 398 (.256 avg, .728 OPS) with 48 runs scored, 8 homers and 37 RBIs. Helton last hit 20 homers way back in the 2005 season for the Rockies as his power seemed to have left him. But, he’s on fire right now with the bat and the Rockies hope he will keep up the good work. Helton has played in 19 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 20 for 63 (.317 avg, .911 OPS) with 9 runs scored, 3 homers and 10 RBIs.

Jose Lopez is off to a good start for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by chinmusic on Thursday 7 April 2011 at 11:54 am

New starting 2B Jose Lopez is off to a good start to his Rockies’ career. He has played in 4 games so far this year for the Rockies and he is 5 for 15 (.333 avg, .867 OPS) with 2 runs scored, 1 homer, 4 RBIs and 1 stolen base. The Rockies aren’t expecting Lopez to be anywhere near as good as Clint Barmes was with the mitt, but they are expecting him to add some thump to the lineup. So far this year, Lopez is not disappointing anyone in the hitting department.

Carlos Gonzalez puts up an awesome year for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by chinmusic on Thursday 30 September 2010 at 3:41 pm

24-year old lefty swinging outfielder Carlos Gonzalez might just win the N.L. MVP Award this year. He has played in 144 games for the Rockies this year and he is 197 of 583 (.338 avg, .980 OPS) with 111 runs scored, 34 homers, 117 RBIs and 25 stolen bases. Gonzalez goes into the last four games of the season leading the N.L. in hits, batting average and RBIs. Gonzalez came over to the Rockies along with Huston Street and Greg Smith from the A’s in a deal with them for Matt Holliday. Holliday is still playing well but not for the A’s so this deal looks like a steal for the Rockies.

Troy Tulowitzki is on fire for the Colorado Rockies this month

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by chinmusic on Friday 17 September 2010 at 6:17 pm

25-year old righty swinging shortstop Troy Tulowitzki is trying to will his team to the playoffs. He has played in 15 games in September so far and he is 22 of 61 (.361 avg, 1.393 OPS) with 18 runs scored, 11 homers, 27 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Overall this year, Tulowitzki has played in 107 games in which he is 133 of 409 (.325 avg, .964 OPS) with 77 runs scored, 23 homers, 82 RBIs and 10 stolen bases. If the rest of the Rockies start hitting along with Tulowitzki they just might make it all the way to the playoffs.

Carlos Gonzalez is having an amazing year for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by chinmusic on Thursday 2 September 2010 at 6:15 pm

24-year old lefty swinging outfielder Carlos Gonzalez is carrying the Rockies’ offense this year. Gonzalez has played in 118 games for the Rockies this year and he is 158 of 480 (.329 avg, .968 OPS) with 88 runs scored, 30 homers, 92 RBIs and 20 stolen bases. The sky is the limit for Gonzalez as he has improved by leaps and bounds with his bat. Gonzalez played in 174 games in his first two years in the majors and he was 152 of 580 (.262 avg) with 84 runs scored, 17 homers, 55 RBIs and 20 stolen bases. Gonzalez came to the Rockies on November 10th, 2008 in a deal along with Huston Street and Greg Smith from the A’s for Matt Holliday. That trade keeps looking better by the day for the Rockies.
