Rockies Power Rankings Roundup: Week 9
Below is a graph of where the Rockies have ranked over the course of the season.
And here is what Power Rankers are saying about the Rockies this week:
Rockies ranked 21st - "Offseason signing Gerardo Parra's slash line (.272/.284/424) is eerily similar to Wilin Rosario's from the previous two years, but now it's coming from a left fielder instead of a catcher. While he's not nearly as bad as Rosario on defense, you need to squint at the advanced metrics to believe Parra is average. Questionable baserunning decisions haven't earned him any fans in Denver, either."
Rockies ranked 21st - In Jonah Keri’s weekly power rankings he selects four teams to write about. Although your team was not chosen this week, Jonah’s work is well worth the read.
Rockies ranked 20th - "Their 3.85 ERA away from Coors Field 10th best in the majors."
Rockies ranked 25th - "A .500 team heading into last week, the Colorado Rockies slipped back under that mark with series losses to the Boston Red Sox and San Francisco Giants.
Pitching is once again the big issue, but there have been some promising signs in that department from the likes of Tyler Chatwood and Jonathan Gray. Chatwood threw seven innings of one-run ball last week to improve to 6-3 with a 2.69 ERA and 1.147 WHIP in 63.2 innings of work.
Meanwhile, Gray went 7.1 innings and allowed five hits and two runs for his second win. His 5.95 ERA for the year doesn't look great, but that's inflated by a pair of awful starts in which he allowed a combined 15 earned runs in seven innings.
In his other five starts, he's gone 2-0 with a 3.06 ERA and 0.959 WHIP."
