Colorado Rockies — Predicted Finish: Fifth Place, NL West
As it relates to fantasy baseball, there is no more interesting team in baseball heading into 2013 than these Colorado Rockies. Yes, we’re picking them to finish last, but that’s more because of a pretty good division (at least at the top), a putrid pitching staff (more on that later) and some aging, injury prone veterans (more on that later).
But despite a fairly bleak looking 2013, they have some young hitters that are really worth a strong look. Part of that is Coors Field, but these guys showed that they can hit in 2012. Now, will that translate to 2013? Will some of their veterans stay on the field long enough to make a big fantasy impact? Well, let’s take a look.
