Is there a possibility that the Rockies will own the team Triple Crown? If Deej can start raking to win the batting title, CarGo claim the HR crown, and NoDo gets the RBI title that will be a team Triple Crown. CarGo has really rebuilt his value and more since his knee got stronger as the season went along. The front office would be wise to heed the Master Rebuilder (sdcarp)’s advice:
” I challenge all RWOers to look at the pending FA OF class of 2016, and the salaries they’ll command, and then tell me Cargo isn’t a screamin’ deal. Bridich needs to setup a booth at the front entrance to the Winter Meetings Hotel and play the “Lets Make a Deal” song non-stop.”
Chris Rusin went the distance for the second time this year winning 11-3. He needed only 103 pitches to get the job done. The most impressive thing he showed (all kids should learn from him) is that he gave up a two-run shot to the opposing pitcher who can’t swing the bat. However, he did not drop his head and start overthrowing. Instead he dug in and put the squeeze on the rest of the way.
Anyone think that maybe Tulo leaving the Rockies actually helps the middle of the order get into sync? Not sure if it’s the recent surge by coincidence or the absence of Tulo helped NoDo and CarGo take off.
As we play out the final month, the picture becomes clearer who will be at the spring training and who will be candidates to be non-tendered. My guess is Baby Bull will be non-tendered and that’s a start.
Nice job Rockies as they continued San Francisco’s misery. It was a great night for jaredean. 🙂
