Some points of discussion:

  • I include Brian Fuentes just in case he re-signs with the Rockies.
  • That being said, I have no idea why Fuentes's saves total is that low. Whichever team signs him will make him the closer.
  • It seems that these projections take a pessimistic view of most Rockies pitchers.
  • They're projections. They could outperform them, or they could do even worse. Which is more likely?
