FanPost

A step back?

First, great blog!  I just discovered this blog and I'm impressed.  It is great to find a place where I can read about the latest goings-on with the Rockies and their farm system.  I am a Colorado ex-pat, who is stuck in the northeast for the forseeable future--as you might imagine Rockies fans in these parts are extremely rare.

Anyway enough of that...I was wondering if anyone else has come to the same conclusion I have...that the Rockies' offense isn't just bad, it is bad in historic proportions.    

Aside from Helton, there is really nobody on the team that would be a starter on some of the better offensive clubs.  Even with the Coors field effect, they are 3rd from the bottom in runs scored in the NL.  The Rockies are averaging 3 runs a game, which puts them on a pace for fewest runs on the road of any team since at least 1999 (as far as I could find home/road splits)--by a fairly large margin.  Compared to the league average, I'm guessing that this is one of the worst road performances on record--certainly in the last decade.

At this point, obviously the Rockies' are several years away from competing--I say trade everyone over the age of 30 that you can (except maybe Helton)--play even more of the youngsters and get ready to draft first next year.

Eat. Drink. Be Merry. But the above FanPost does not necessarily reflect the attitudes, opinions, or views of Purple Row's staff (unless, of course, it's written by the staff [and even then, it still might not]).
