In 2010, four out of five teams in the NL West saw strong debut seasons from a rookie starter, Mat Latos for the Padres, Dan Hudson for the Diamondbacks, Jhoulys Chacin for the Rockies and Madison Bumgarner for the Giants. So far in 2011, Chacin's third of the four in f-WAR, with 1.1 while Bumgarner has 1.5 and Hudson leads at 2.3. Latos trails at 0.4. While it's probably a coincidence that their respective teams' standings mirror the rankings of their sophomore starters, Chacin and the Rockies can help each other in the standings and stats this afternoon.
