Surprising Colorado Starting Pitching Stats

Postby acsguitar » Mon Jul 27, 2009 12:31 pm

So for all 2 of you who care. I was surprised to learn this today.

Colorado's Starting pitching is actually pretty excellent. Their relief pitching is awful. However, if this is the case you'd think a little RP improvement could go a long way.

Here are some telling stats

Starting Pitching:

#7 ERA in Baseball 4.00
#1 in Wins with 43
#6 In Losses with 30
#3 in HR's allowed with 50
#1 in Win Probability
#9 in Whip with a 1.35
#14 in K's
#14 in BB's

Pretty interesting considering Cook, Jimenez, Marquis, Hammel, De La Rosa doesn't exactly have huge name power.

Yea thats what they need to do. Marquis, Cook, Ubaldo all have GB stuff. Chacin is a GB guy.

Basically they have 3 Pitchers in the TOP 10 in GB% in Marquis, cook, Ubaldo. While Hammel and De La Rosa are top 35

I would not be surprised in the slightest to see the Rockies playing in October. Sure, they are 8 games out behind the Dodgers in the NL West, but they currently lead the Wild Card with 2 games over San Fran, 2.5 over the Cardinals. The recent addition of Betancourt to shore up their bulllpen should do wonders, and Huston Street has been lights out since a rocky start to the season. To be realistic, though, the Rockies have already gone on their late-season surge, winning a ridiculous 34 of their last 45 games. Maybe the demise comes sooner this year?
