The first of two stats here is Success With Runners on Base, a stat I created that takes into account RBI, Sacrifice Flies, Grounding into Double Plays, and strikeouts. The final result can be rated like this: 10+ is great (5 players made it this year), 6-10 is very good (a 6+ should be somewhere in the top 30), 3-6 is pretty good, 1-3 is ok, somewhere around average to below average, and below 1 is bad.
This is how the Rockies with 200+ at-bats were this season:
C. Barmes- 6.098
T. Helton- 4.921
G. Atkins- 4.421
K. Matsui- 2.939
B. Hawpe- 2.868
Y. Torrealba- 2.156
M. Holliday- 2.148
V. Castilla- .850
J. Carroll- .785
The reason Barmes did so well was because he rarely grounded into double-plays.
Next is another stat, which is a stat that uses a players '06 stats to predict his '07 stats. It takes into account how he has done over the last few seasons, and his age. Here's how most of this years Rockies should do next year, assuming they play full seasons:
Atkins- 31 HR, 125 RBI, 122 Runs, .331 average, .406 On-Base %
Holliday- 33 HR, 117 RBI, 114 Runs, .334 average, .391 OBP
Helton- 18 HR, 80 RBI, 93 Runs, .309 average, .421 OBP
Hawpe- 23 HR, 89 RBI, 76 Runs, .292 average, .386 OBP
Tulowitzki- 11 HR, 51 RBI, 95 Runs, .287 average, .375 OBP
Carroll- 4 HR, 40 RBI, 88 Runs, .274 average, .353 OBP
Ianetta- 15 HR, 63 RBI, 80 Runs, .302 average, .411 OBP
One final note: I want the old Coors Field effect back, most of the offense on my fantasy team is Rockies.
