The 2012 Colorado Rockies: Business Review

Grading how the Rockies' ownership and business personnel performed in 2012.

2012 Player Reviews: Veteran starters

The Rockies' starting pitching was, to put it kindly, not very good in 2012. Three veteran pitchers who performed terribly were a major reason why.

2012 Rockies Player Reviews: Young Starters

Much of the 2011/12 offseason was spent "acquiring all the young arms", an attempt to stack the team with enough rotation options that at least a couple would work out for the year, even if we had to shuffle the roster about through the year. Unfortunately, none of our youngest starters were able to take significant leaps in 2012; they battled injury, inefficiency and inexperience. Project 5183, designed in part to improve their development, seemed to help the older starters more than the younger ones, if anything. Let's break this all down.

2012 Rockies Player Reviews: Full-time Relievers

The back end of the Rockies' bullpen was very quietly exceptional in 2012, with three of the six top NL relievers in rWAR calling Coors Field home.

2012 Rockies Player Reviews: Part-Time Relievers

It was an interesting year to be a Rockies pitcher. An incredibly frustrating year, too, but interesting regardless. Now that we've wrapped up the reviews on position players, it's time to break down this pitching madness, and we begin with relief pitchers that existed in part-time roles this year. This article will cover our two Seth Smith trade acquisitions, Guillermo Moscoso and Josh Outman, each of whom spent some time starting but were mostly hybrid type relievers during the year, as well as the scattered relievers who saw limited action in the Rockies' bullpen, some of whom have moved on from the Rockies, others whose careers are just getting started.

2012 Rockies Player Reviews: The Starting Outfield

When your team loses 98 games, there are very few bright spots. With the exception of the back end of the bullpen, the Rockies' outfield play in 2012 was perhaps the biggest exception. That is not particularly a surprise.

2012 Rockies Player Reviews: Middle Infielders

Perhaps no other group summed up Colorado's 2012 better than the starting middle infielders. There was injury, there was awful luck, and there was hope for the future reflected in a young player.

2012 Rockies Player Reviews: Corner Infielders

It was a mix of youth and age at the corners for Colorado in 2012...and neither provided a whole lot of production -- mostly due to bad defense.

2012 Rockies Player Reviews: Catchers

After six years of Chris Iannetta, the Rockies have a new #1 catcher...for now.

2012 Rockies Player Reviews: Reserve Infielders

In the second edition of the 2012 Rockies Player Reviews, we look at some of the reserve infielders that played for Colorado this season.

Rockies 2012 Player Review: The Outfield Bench

In yesterday's Rockpile, Jeff Aberle argued that while injuries likely played a part in the team's record-loss season, they probably didn't take this team out of contention. As we begin our series of 2012 player reviews, we will begin to look at the makeup of this team more closely, and perhaps come to some more satisfying conclusions about just how this team ended up doing what they did. This year, rather than stretching out the series player by player (we don't want to relive 2012 for any longer than we have to, and don't want to force you into that either), we'll be splitting up the players into categories. Today, we begin with the Rockies outfield bench, specifically, players who accumulated 200 plate appearances or less.
