The Colorado Rockies had a rough time in the first half in 2012

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Weekly Results by chinmusic on Wednesday 11 July 2012 at 3:16 pm

The Rockies finished the first half tied for last in the N.L. West (with the Padres) with a 33-52 record, which has them 13 games behind the Dodgers. Here is a look at the players who made the biggest impacts in the first half of the 2012 season, in my opinion:

Team MVP: Carlos Gonzalez - 26-year old lefty swinging outfielder Carlos Gonzalez had a monster first half in 2012. Gonzalez played in 78 games for the Rockies last year and he was 104 of 315 (.330 avg, .967 OPS) with 61 runs scored, 17 homers, 58 RBIs and 11 stolen bases. I think Gonzalez is going to finish the 2012 season strongly.

Biggest Surprise: Wilin Rosario - 23-year old righty swinging catcher Wilin Rosario has taken full advantage of Ramon Hernandez’ injury this year. Rosario has played in 58 games for the Rockies this year and he is 47 of 190 (.247 avg, .800 OPS) with 29 runs scored, 14 homers, 36 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. The only negative with Rosario is his utter lack of plate discipline as he has whiffed 53 times so far this year while only walking 8 times.

Biggest Disappointment: Jeremy Guthrie - The Rockies dealt for 33-year old righty starting pitcher Jeremy Guthrie last winter with the idea of him being #2 in the rotation in 2012. But, he has recently been demoted to the bullpen because of an utter lack of performance. Guthrie has pitched in 17 games (13 starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 3-8 with a 6.05 ERA and a 1.64 WHIP. Guthrie has given up 109 hits (18 homers) in his first 83 1/3 innings this year as he has been pitching extended batting practice for the opposing teams.

The Colorado Rockies get off to a rough start

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Weekly Results by chinmusic on Monday 9 April 2012 at 6:29 pm

The Rockies went 1-2 against the Astros last weekend as they were outscored by a combined score of 13-10. The Rockies only hit .198 with a .611 OPS over the weekend against the Astros. Michael Cuddyer was 5 for 12 (.417 avg, 1.250 OPS) with 1 run scored, 1 homer, 2 RBIs and 1 stolen base to lead the way for the Rockies with the bat so far this year. Tyler Colvin was 2 for 6 (.333 avg, .667 OPS) against the Astros. Cuddyer & Colvin are the only two Rockies with a .250+ batting average entering this week. The Rockies have gotten solid starting pitching so far this year as Jeremy Guthrie, Jamie Moyer and Juan Nicasio were a combined 1-1 with a 3.32 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP. Rafael Betancourt saved the Rockies’ first win this year but it wasn’t easy as he gave up a hit and walked a batter in a scoreless inning. The Rockies will now host the San Francisco Giants the next few days.

The Colorado Rockies had a rough first half of the 2011 season

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Weekly Results by chinmusic on Wednesday 13 July 2011 at 2:38 pm

The Rockies are sitting at 43-48 on the season right now which has them in 3rd place in the N.L. West, 8.5 games behind the Giants. The Rockies are also 10.5 games behind the Braves in the Wild Card race. The Rockies could be either buyers or sellers based on the next three weeks. Here is a look at the players who made the biggest impact for the Rockies in the first half of the 2011 season:

Team MVP: 26-year old righty swinging shortstop Troy Tulowitzki is still the best player on the Rockies (Carlos Gonzalez is closing in on him). Tulowitzki has played in 86 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 89 for 332 (.268 avg, .825 OPS) with 44 runs scored, 17 homers, 57 RBIs and 6 stolen bases. Tulowitzki is the player the Rockies could least afford to lose.

Biggest Surprise: 37-year old lefty swinging 1B Todd Helton has looked like he was toast the last couple of years. But, he has come back with a vengeance this year. Helton has played in 80 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 87 for 271 (.321 avg, .894 OPS) with 38 runs scored, 10 homers and 41 RBIs. The Rockies hope that Helton can stay healthy and finish strongly this year.

Biggest Disappointment: 26-year old lefty swinging 3B Ian Stewart had a solid year in 2010 and the Rockies were expecting even more out of him this year. But, that hasn’t happened! Stewart has played in 27 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 7 for 66 (.106 avg, .339 OPS) with 5 runs scored, 0 homers, 1 RBI and 1 stolen base. He has whiffed 22 times already this year and he has spent more time in AAA than with the Rockies so far this year.

The Colorado Rockies were so/so to open the year

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Weekly Results by chinmusic on Monday 4 April 2011 at 7:42 pm

The Colorado Rockies split the first two games with the Diamondbacks and then they were snowed out yesterday. The Rockies outscored the D-Backs 9-8 in two hotly contested games. Chris Iannetta got off to a good start for the Rockies as he was 3 for 6 (.500 avg, 1.458 OPS) with 3 runs scored and 1 RBI. That is a good sign for the Rockies who really have no backup plan if he fails again in 2011. Carlos Gonzalez was 4 for 9 (.444 avg, 1.056 OPS) with 1 run scored and 1 stolen base so he got off to a decent start too. Seth Smith was 4 for 10 (.400 avg, 1.000 OPS) with 1 run scored and 1 RBI against the D-Backs.

The Colorado Rockies finished the first half strong

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Weekly Results by chinmusic on Thursday 15 July 2010 at 12:24 pm

The Rockies are 49-39 on the season which has them tied for second place in the N.L. West with the Dodgers, 2 games behind the Padres. The Rockies have had some surprises and disappointments and here’s a closer look at them:

Pleasant Surprises: 31-year old righty swinging catcher Miguel Olivo was supposed to share P.T. with Chris Iannetta behind the plate but he played so well that the Rockies sent Iannetta to AAA. Olivo has played in 63 games for the Rockies this year and he is 74 of 228 (.325 avg, .925 OPS) with 42 runs scored, 11 homers, 42 RBIs and 4 stolen bases. 25-year old switch hitting 2B Jonathan Herrera has really stepped up when getting the chance to play due to Troy Tulowitzki’s injury. Herrera has played in 32 games for the Rockies this year and he is 36 of 113 (.319 avg, .701 OPS) with 14 runs scored and 10 RBIs. 30-year old righty reliever Matt Belisle is pitching the best baseball of his major league career for the Rockies in 2010. Belisle has pitched in 42 games (0 starts) for the Rockies this year and he is 4-4 with 1 save, a 2.63 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP. 33-year old lefty reliever Joe Beimel has also been outstanding out of the pen for the Rockies this year. He has pitched in 39 games (0 starts) for the Rockies this year and he is 1-0 with a 2.28 ERA and a 0.94 WHIP.

Disappointments: 36-year old lefty swinging 1B Todd Helton appears to be getting near to the end of the line. He has played in 69 games for the Rockies this year and he is 61 of 248 (.246 avg, .646 OPS) with 29 runs scored, 2 homers and 16 RBIs. 24-year old switch hitting Dexter Fowler started the season as the starting CF for the Rockies but he got sent to the minors after a slow start. Fowler has played in 59 games for the Rockies this year and he is 44 of 189 (.233 avg, .734 OPS) with 32 runs scored, 2 homers, 10 RBIs and 8 stolen bases. 27-year old righty swinging Chris Iannetta is back in the majors but he has been a big disappointment for the Rockies this year. Iannetta has played in 26 games for the Rockies this year and he is 18 of 87 (.207 avg, .772 OPS) with 9 runs scored, 6 homers and 13 RBIs. 24-year old lefty reliever Franklin Morales has been awful this year for the Rockies. He has pitched in 23 games (0 starts) for the Rockies this year and he is 0-3 with 3 saves, a 6.75 ERA and a 1.88 WHIP. Morales has walked a stunningly bad 18 batters in only 21 1/3 innings this season for the Rockies.

This could be the week that the Colorado Rockies break out

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Weekly Results by chinmusic on Monday 19 April 2010 at 8:05 pm

The Rockies are stuck at .500 on the year as they are 6-6. They are tied with the Rockies and Padres, 2 games behind the Giants in the N.L. West. The Rockies have outscored their opponents 58-48 this season so it’s time they start winning more games. This could be the week for that as the Rockies play 4 games in Washington before returning home this coming weekend to deal with the Marlins for 3 games.

The Colorado Rockies get off to a .500 start in 2010

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Weekly Results by chinmusic on Monday 12 April 2010 at 5:28 pm

The Rockies made it out of the first week of the season with a 3-3 record despite outscoring the opposition 29-22. The Rockies need to be more consistent offensively if they are going to make the pitching stand up. The Rockies will host the New York Mets starting tomorrow for 3 games then they will travel to Atlanta this weekend to play the Braves. The Rockies need to go at least 4-2 this week.

The Colorado Rockies are off to a so-so start this season

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Weekly Results by chinmusic on Saturday 10 April 2010 at 5:23 pm

The Rockies are 2-2 on the season so far even though they have outscored the competition 21-15. The Rockies really need to get more consistent outings out of the starting pitchers. Jorge De La Rosa and Ubaldo Jimenez were outstanding the first time around but Greg Smith and Aaron Cook were not. The Rockies are scoring enough runs to be winning games (5.5 avg) so if they start getting consistent starting pitching, watch out!

The Colorado Rockies to play the San Diego Padres for the N.L. Wild Card tonight

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, Weekly Results by chinmusic on Monday 1 October 2007 at 12:09 pm

The Colorado Rockies won 9 of their last 10 games of the season to force a one game playoff tonight against the Padres.  The pitching matchup does not appear to favor the Rockies in this game as they are pitching Josh Fogg against Jake Peavy.  Fogg was 10-9 with a 4.79 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP in 29 games (28 starts) this season for the Rockies.  In 3 starts against the Padres this season, Fogg is 1-1 with a 6.28 ERA and a 2.16 WHIP.  Peavy has started 2 games this season against the Rockies and he is 2-0 with a 1.29 ERA.  Peavy won pitching’s triple crown as he led the league in ERA (2.36), wins (19) and strikeouts (234).

It will be fun to watch Matt Holliday try to lock up the batting title today as he is sitting at .340.  Chipper Jones is behind him at .337 and Holliday will win the batting title as long as he doesn’t go 0 for 5 or worse tonight.  He also is only one RBI behind Ryan Howard (136-135) going into tonight’s ballgame.

The Colorado Rockies are surging towards an improbable playoff run

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, Weekly Results by chinmusic on Friday 28 September 2007 at 4:53 pm

The Rockies have won an amazing 11 games in a row which has pulled them only 1 game behind the Padres for the Wild Card and 2 games behind the D-Backs for the N.L. West lead.  The Rockies will host the D-Backs this weekend so they hold fate in their own hands.  Brad Hawpe has been a big key in the surge as he is 12 for his last 26 (.462 avg) with 4 runs scored, 3 homers and 10 RBIs.  Todd Helton has also been swinging a hot stick as he is 10 for his last 28 (.357 avg) with 1 homer and 7 RBIs.
