fun with stats...

I was just looking at espn's sortable stats and found some interesting things.  First, the Rockies are up to 185 runs scored on the road--a mere 51 runs behind 29th place (the Phillies)--ouch.  That works out to 3.3 Runs/game.  Given that some of those runs are unearned and some games go extra innings--the opponent ERA would be somewhat lower than that even.  By comparison, the Cardinals lead the majors in ERA at 3.43--ugh.

I also looked up the Rockies' rank in OPS by position, which I found interesting--obviously not adjusted for park--so make your own adjustments accordingly
C 11th
1B 4th
2B 22nd
3B 17th
SS 15th
LF 15th
CF 21st
RF 5th
P 17th (11th in NL)

A couple of things stand out--I'm actually surprised at how well the 1B rank given Helton's down year.  And RF?  Also, the catchers aren't too bad?  Lastly, it makes apparent what we already knew---Miles needs to sit and CF is a problem
