Over at The Good Phight, David Cohen ranked the lineup positions for every Major League team by OPS. Here's how the Rockies rate:

O-Rank Position BA OBP SLG OPS
11 3 .315 .415 .550 0.965
14 4 .325 .396 .549 0.945
21 5 .313 .382 .534 0.916
94 2 .295 .347 .456 0.803
116 6 .264 .337 .447 0.784
154 1 .282 .343 .407 0.750
239 7 .232 .290 .367 0.657
243 8 .230 .308 .340 0.648
268 9 .153 .222 .203 0.425

To put the chart in some NL West perspective, no NL West team had a better OPS in lineup positions 3 and 4 than the Rockies. The first NL West team besides the Rockies to appear is San Francisco and that's at #15. The Rockies already placed two on the list by then.

After the four in the top 100, I think we can all see what went wrong in the other spots.
