Also, the Rockies' problems is their offense. There offense has never been good enough. This may sound strange but let me explain. No matter how good the rockies pitchers are, they will always have a 5.00+ team ERA, even if they had five Randy Johnsons.
I disagree. Colorado had a 5.20 era with guys like Chacon. You actully think 5 RJS would only bring that down .20 to 5? Even in Coors, its unrealistic to expect 1,000 runs. Signing flyball pitchers like Neagle are a part of Rockies failures. Brandon Webb with that sinker would look nice. With the right pitchers, theres no reason Colorado can't put up a 4.50 era. If they score 900 runs, they could compete.
