Right thats how the rox have worked for years and it drives me nuts. They do it with ALL of their players.
Ian Stewart: Dude is the future 3B of the franchise. He could homer in 5 straight games but if he goes 0 for his next 10 he immediately becomes a bench player to Melvin Mora (or Atkins like last year WTF)
Everyone in the outfield except Hawpe: Seth Smith has 10 Hr's from a role player role. yet he's a bench player if he goes 0fer literally one day it seems. The other problem is that he's really clutch late in the game. Somehow this equates (and applies to spilly too) to "oh he's clutch so we can't start him".
Iannetta: Dude has TONS of power. He started slow so he goes to the minors.
The rockies really piss me off with their player development. If anything Helton who is batting .240 from the TWO HOLE should be sat and stewart or Hawpe should be playing 1B.
Playing time is all over the place for the rox. It's somewhat annoying. But hey I think they are only like 3 games back
