The Rockies have actually had a great offseason so far. We needed a new hitting coach, we got rid of Manny Corpas (he was on one of our worst relievers in 2010) re-signed Jorge De La Rosa and added a much-needed right handed bat in Jose Lopez. I like Lopez because he's a utility man, can play practically any infield spot. And unlike Melvin Mora, he's still young and has potential.
We had some young players like Carlos Gonzalez and Ubaldo Jimenez have breakout years in 2010 and I'm expecting some other of our young players (like Ian Stewart) to continue to develop. Plus, Cargo and Troy Tulowitzki are among the best 3-4 hitters in baseball.
I also noticed one thing: The Rockies will do great one season, suck/average the next, then do great again next season. just look.
2007: 90-73—NL Champions. Lost to Red Sox in world Series.
2008: Injuries kill the team and their backups and the Rockies go 74-88.
2009: Much better than some expected, and even with after trading Matt Holliday, still have a great offense and get into the playoffs but losing to the Phillies.
2010: Injuries aren't as bad, but they still do hurt along with bad coaching (batting wise) this team is on the rise and you know it.
