Peaks & Valleys - June 28 - Rockies Waste Opportunity

New, 17 comments

The Colorado Rockies went into Anaheim on a roll, winning three straight series with a chance for four. Unfortunately, the offense barely showed up (again) and the bullpen let a close game get out of hand.

Peaks

↵

- Rookie Jhoulys Chacin continued to make his case to stay in the rotation, striking out 12 Angels and allowing only two earned runs.

↵

-Jonathan Herrera keeps on hitting from the lead-off spot, extending his hitting streak to nine games.

↵

- Jorge De La Rosa had a fantastic rehab start in Triple-A, preparing the way for his return to the majors. Read the scouting report in today's Starting Five.

Level Ground

↵

- When your franchise's greatest player decides to reconnect with his former team, it should be a wonderful thing. The fact that there was even discussion about John Elway's return to the Broncos organization is clear evidence his Denver legacy has diminished in the past decade.

Valleys

↵

- The Rockies' Manuel Corpas allowed a disastrous grand slam to Anaheim's Brandon Wood (his first career slam), who had been sent down to Triple-A earlier this season due to poor production. Brandon Wood? Seriously, Manny?

↵

- Avalanche GM Greg Sherman took flak from essentially anyone who knows anything about hockey for his first round selection of C Joey Hishon in this weekend's NHL Draft, passing up many highly rated prospects who had dropped. Time will tell if Sherman made the proper decision, but he is deservedly getting bad press for what appears to be a sizeable overreach.
