First I would like to thank the Rockies starting pitchers for pitching great over the last several games. Not ace like performances for sure (well maybe Moyer is an exception) but solid starts that allowed the team to pick up some games and more importantly some confidence.
Two, Scutaro has been taking some heat on this site, and just like Pooter with EY2, I am going to defend Scutaro for his performance so far. Sure he has made a couple errors, but so has that Gold Glover to his right. The hitting statistic is the one that is way over rated here, because although he is just above the Mendoza line he is taking terrific lead off at bats and still has a decent OBP for being in a slump. Bottom line Scutaro is going to great at second base in 2012!
Finally Edwar Cabrera pitched for the Tulsa Drillers last night and did not pitch a no hitter or even pick up the win – however his AA statistics so far are really good with one remarkable (maybe even unbelievable) exception:
Earned Runs: 6
“this all looks great so far, but..”
Home Runs: 6
“Yup, all six of his runs have been gopher balls – ooch!!!”
Almost half the hits are over the wall.
Great starting pitcher prospect (Nicasio like AA numbers) if he can make some adjustments to correct that one minor(?) flaw.
