In our final installment, we round out the rotation as described by Sean Smith's CHONE projections.
CHONE projections seem to have a lot of the Rockies' pitching rotation taking a step back. This week's Counting Rocks discusses these numbers and why they seem to be out of line or right on target.
Continuing the exploration of the CHONE projections of the Rockies' 2010, Counting Rocks moves on to the OF and bench.
