New, comments

First Round matchup in the Infielder Region

Due to the cancellation of the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Basketball Tournaments, Purple Row is hosting our own Rockies Madness Tournament this year. We selected the 36 best players in Rockies history in order to figure out who the best player is in franchise history. We sorted them into four regions in order to force the most interesting matchups: Infielders, Outfielders, Mile High (for relievers and starting pitchers who began their career before the humidor), and Humidor (for starters who began their career after the humidor). All stats are from Baseball-Reference.

Today is the First Round in the Infield Region: No. 1 Todd Helton vs. No. 8 Yorvit Torrealba

No. 1 Todd Helton, First Baseman

1997-2013
