Grading how the Rockies' ownership and business personnel performed in 2012.
It's easy to assail the Rockies Front Office after a 98 loss season, but how much blame do they really deserve?
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.
Jhoulys Chacin, still only 24 going into his third full season in the majors, was all set to serve as the unofficial ace of the staff. His sinking performance at the end of 2011 raised some...
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.
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.
Troy Tulowitzki, Marco Scutaro, and Josh Rutledge summed up Colorado's 2012 pretty well. There was injury, awful luck, but also hope for the future reflected in a young player.
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.
After six years of Chris Iannetta, the Rockies have a new #1 catcher...for now. Wilin Rosario had both an incredibly encouraging and also deeply concerning rookie year. Will he be the man to guide the Rockies' young pitchers going forward?
Wilin Rosario has the tools to become a top flight catcher in MLB. How has he taken advantage of the resources available to him?
Marco Scutaro, brought in to hold down the 2B position - for 2012, at least - brings both veteran leadership and a willingness to learn from anybody and everybody.
At the start of 2011, Jhoulys Chacin was a young phenom who had a host of rotation mates to lean on. By the end of the year, he was thrust into the role of the Rockies' ace. How did he perform?

You may think you have a preferred statistical method for grading pitchers, but Jason Hammel continues to challenge your belief.
