Sunday Rockpile: Rockies roll, so do the links

New, comments

I hate turning the Rockpile into just a content shark, if I don't have something worthwhile of my own to add, but I don't have enough time today. I did add a couple of notes, though.


The Denver Post:

Transformer: How Jimenez changed his delivery and his fortunes - The Denver Post - Defiitely read this article breaking down the evolution of Ubaldo Jimenez.

Renck: Phillies aren't Phantastic - The Denver Post - Renck's point stands. Lost in the hoopla surrounding Roy Halladay's perfect game is the fact that he had to be perfect if the Phillies wanted to win that contest. Their vaunted offense still slumbers.

Rockies' hit parade buries L.A. at Coors Field on Saturday - The Denver Post

Kiszla: Rockies need Cook to produce on mound - The Denver Post - Mark Kiszla begrudges Aaron Cook's salary way too much in his column and comes off as a little more than bitter, but he's right. Aaron Cook does need to produce like he did last night more often.

Catcher Olivo keeps cranking out the hits at Coors Field - The Denver Post - A couple of iteresting stats here, not only on Olivo at Coors, but also the next one that mentions the Rockies have a 52-33 edge in HR's over their opponents this season.

CarGo's defense shines brightest on this night - The Denver Post

Moss: Big stats make for fine reading material - The Denver Post - Moss writes a cautionary piece about not getting too carried away with minor league stats, the focal point being Tyler Matzek. Watching Matzek last night, I think if anythig the opposite might take place, fans will worry too much about the bad and not realize that this is still as taleted an arm as you'll find anywhere. I;ll write more about him later when I get home, but the bottom line is that the stuff was there, the command was not.. Plus, I'm sure he'll like to avoid Giants prospect (and former Rockies draft pick) Chris Dominguez from here on out. Dominguez's family was in attendance from Miami and he put on a show for them, doubling and homerig off Matzek for the only extra base hits Tyler allowed.
