ops rank by position...

I posted this last year and thought it might be interesting to look at this again this year.  The following is the Rockies rank for OPS by position:
C  27 (.650)
1B 11 (.876)
2B 7  (.788)
3b 2  (.939)
SS 28 (.600)
LF 2  (.971)
CF 15 (.744) (note Houston ranked 23)
RF 2  (.900)

a couple of points below...

  1. I think I wrote last year that I thought Sullivan could provide league average offense--and it looks like he (and his teammates at CF did).  I'm still not quite sure why everyone is so eager to run Sullivan out of town.  I agree that Taveras is a defensive upgrade and that is worth something extra at Coors, but I don't see replacing Sullivan as an emergency.
  2. C/SS.  It sure is convenient that the two rookies that are perhaps most ready to make an impact in the majors are at positions of weakness with the team.  Tulo. would have to try really hard to finish with an OPS under .600.
  3. 1B.  It has been said before, but the Rockies paid almost half of the team's salary (now ranked 28th in the majors) for that 11th ranked OPS at first base.

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]).
