Upcoming 2009 Milestones

            With the season fast approaching and the Rockies one year older the individual players are beginning to reach some "milestones". Most of the players are young and still have plenty of time reach higher numbers and show that they did something for the Rockies and baseball if they ever move on. Here are some of the "milestones" the players are reaching and where they are now:

Player

Milestone

Current

Huston Street

100 saves

94 saves

Manny Corpas

50 saves

23 saves

Aaron Cook*

59 wins

52 wins

Chris Iannetta

50 home runs

24 home runs

Garrett Atkins

100 home runs

89 home runs

Garrett Atkins

500 RBI

431 RBI

Troy Tulowitzki

50 home runs

33 home runs

Troy Tulowitzki

200 RBI

151 RBI

Brad Hawpe

100 home runs

88 home runs

Brad Hawpe

400 RBI

341 RBI

Todd Helton

2000 hits

1957 hits

Todd Helton

500 doubles

471 doubles

Todd Helton

1200 RBI

1116 RBI


I think all of these can be reached this year but then the question becomes, WHEN? The MLB website has a milestone tracker but the only Rockies player it has listed is Todd Helton, with projected dates of: May 22, for 2000 hits; August 23, for 500 doubles; and he won't get his 1200 RBI this year. When do you think these will occur? Are the projections for Mr. Helton accurate or will he play like he has all spring and beat these projections a lot faster?

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]).
