Purple Row Rockies Madness: No. 3 Brian Fuentes vs. No. 6 Scott Oberg

New, comments

First Round matchup in the Mile High 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 to determine the best player in franchise history. We sorted them into four regions 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 Round 1 in the Mile High Region: No. 3 Brian Fuentes vs. No. 6 Scott Oberg.
