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.

Ryan Spilboroghs will likely see a bump in P.T. for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well by chinmusic on Friday 20 August 2010 at 10:16 am

With Brad Hawpe no longer on the team, Ryan Spilboroghs could see a significant bump in playing time. Spilboroghs has played in 98 games this season for the Rockies and he is 68 of 252 (.270 avg, .792 OPS) with 31 runs scored, 9 homers, 25 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. Spilboroghs has always been a solid backup for the Rockies so it will be interesting to see how he does with more P.T. in the next month and a half.

Seth Smith of the Colorado Rockies is one of the most underrated players in the league

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well by chinmusic on Friday 6 August 2010 at 6:03 pm

The Rockies are so deep in the outfield that they can’t find full time ABs for 27-year old lefty swinging Seth Smith. Smith has played in 91 games for the Rockies this year and he is 71 of 256 (.277 avg, .861 OPS) with 41 runs scored, 14 homers and 45 RBIs. He would start on most teams in the N.L. but not the Rockies. He is also very clutch as he always seems to get the big hit when it really counts especially whenever the Rockies are in the playoffs. I would call Smith one of the Rockies’ secret weapons but a lot of teams know about him.

The Colorado Rockies have two All-Stars

Blogged under Awards, Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Monday 5 July 2010 at 12:33 pm

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.

Jonathan Herrera is playing well for the Colorado Rockies right now

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well by chinmusic on Monday 28 June 2010 at 7:27 pm

25-year old switch hitting Jonathan Herrera has taken well to his new job as the Rockies’ starting 2B. He has played in 19 games this season for the Rockies and he is 18 of 59 (.305 avg, .633 OPS) with 7 runs scored and 2 RBIs. Herrera goes up to the plate hacking as he has only walked 2 times this season. The Rockies won’t care much about Herrera’s plate discipline as long as he keeps hitting the ball well and playing good defense. The Rockies are likely still looking to trade for a 2B or SS despite Herrera’s recent success.

Seth Smith is swinging a good stick for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well by chinmusic on Tuesday 22 June 2010 at 11:59 am

27-year old lefty swinging Seth Smith is probably the best outfielder in baseball without a starting job. He has played in 59 games for the Rockies this season and he is 44 of 162 (.272 avg, .860 OPS) with 29 runs scored, 10 homers and 31 RBIs. Smith has now played in 266 games in his major league career and he is 175 of 613 (.285 avg, .871 OPS) with 107 runs scored, 29 homers and 101 RBIs. Seth Smith has been a big time player for the Rockies despite not playing every day and that will likely continue at least the rest of this year do to the glut of outfielders on the Rockies’ roster.
