Thursday Rockpile: Carlos Gonzalez vs. Matt Holliday

Since July 24th (the day Holliday was traded to St. Louis):

Carlos Gonzalez:  .421/.477/.816, 2 2B, 2 3B, 3 HR, 5 BB, 8 R, 6 RBI

Matt Holliday:  .486/.519/.800, 8 2B, 1 3B, 4 HR, 7 BB, 14 R, 17 RBI

Okay, obviously Holliday wins, he's been playing more and has been incredible for the Cards since the trade, but really, who would have guessed that Gonzalez would be providing nearly as much production to the Rockies?

Alright, sorry for this being so short:

Ubaldo, CarGo power Rockies - The Denver Post


Barmes proves he can deliver hits other than home runs - The Denver Post

whew, that's a relief, I was afraid it was something medical...

Hawpe confident he'll start hitting - 

I love how the team has their slumps timed pretty well right now. Barmes and Hawpe go cold, Tulowitzki and Gonzalez heat up. This has been very helpful keeping the Rockies on a long run of success. Still, this week has seen the team's playoff odds hover around the 55%-60% range, while the Braves have been rebuilding their case with a big week against the Dodgers and Nationals. It would be nice if the Rockies could put together another five or six game winning streak to give a little separation from the pack.
