GROUNDHOG DAY!!!!

This team is like clockwork - Cuddyer DL, Arenado DL, Cuddyer back to DL, CarGo DL, and after seeing replays of Tulo coming out - seems like this will be a Tulo DL.

There healthy lineup is as good as it gets, but it's so rarely in tact.

Well Rockies fans, the Broncos might be able to challenge my Hawks with a bolstered defense.

I lived in Denver for a while, and going to a Rockies game is like a haze of bong hits and booze, so you're just numb to the outcome.  Denver fans are so laid-back, outside of the Broncos.  But it's hard to be laid-back with the NFL, with the 16 game schedule.  Going to a Rockie game, if you live near the stadium, consists of the following...

1. Take bong rips and drink pregame
2.  Walk to game, drink more
3. Leave game, completely oblivious and apathetic to whether the Rockies won or lost

You should come to LA and see how we roll.. pun intended (;

The only thing is, #3... we got a lot of people with tooo much pride here about winning/losing thats why there are so many fights. At first everyone is cool, because they came all high, then by 3rd inning the buzzes start to hit.

for fantasy owners that have rockies and are looking ahead to the playoffs...

I know not everyone's schedule is the same but in September the rockies are at home in weeks one and three. they are on the road in weeks 2 and 4

I guess just heads up and keep this in mind and have an alternate for the time they aren't at coors if you feel so inclined

Shouldn't Rockies have pitching staff full of split finger fastball pitchers? Like when a guy like Iwakuma becomes a FA back up the brinks truck. Their team more than any other team should look into ground ball ratio's in pitchers. Who are top 10 ground ball starters in league today???

I think they've tried this to an extent but it hasn't worked for them.

The problem is pitching in Coors with the thin air mitigates the sink those groundball pitchers usually get.

Tim Hudson is a good example. He's a superb groundball pitcher. But in 7 career starts at Coors... it's not pretty.

37 innings, 1.73 WHIP, 7.05 ERA

Mike Hampton was a good groundball pitcher... until he started pitching in Coors.

But in theory you're right. That's why guys like Aaron Cook and Jason Marquis had some success there. The Rockies can produce serviceable back end starters if they can induce a lot of groundballs like Cook and Marquis. Ubaldo was a front end starter because he could induce groundballs and miss bats. Strikeout pitchers tend to be flyball pitchers, which is unfortunate for the Rockies. What they really need are pitchers who can get groundballs and miss bats, a rare combination.

Also, you're assuming free agents will want to pitch in Colorado?

I thought Rockies missed out on Samarzija. Perfect pitcher for them, who strikes guys out and gets a lot of groundballs. Those guys are rare in the game right now.

Eddie Butler appears to be a decent groundball pitcher, but he's not missing any bats. Rockies fans won't want to hear this, but his upside isn't much higher than what Aaron Cook did there.

Jon Gray's GB% is under 40% in AA. Doesn't bode well for him. I don't think either pitcher will ever be fantasy relevant as long as they pitch for the Rox. Gray might be one day if he gets out of there.
