Jim Tracy's the man to watch for this season. After taking NL Manager of the Year Honors, who knows how he will do in his first full season?
But we still know that he can bring out the best in his team. Helton provides veteran leadership, along with a .300 average and a gold glove. In the outfield, Fowler and Gonzalez provide speed, and Hawpe is a above average power hitter.
Eric Young showed some abilities he has, and Rockies fans better be excited about him. Barmes, Stewart, Tulowitzki has pop in the infield. Iannetta and Olivo have power, as they share time.
The bench includes a powerful left handed bat in Jason Giambi along with Mora who can play multiple positions.
Hammel, Jimenez, Francis, Cook, and De La Rosa make up a solid rotation. Betancourt's a reliable arm in the 'pen. This team will compete in the division and the Wild Card.
