He looks like a legitimate ace for the Colorado Rockies.In a 4-1 victory, Chacin was an inning away from a complete-game shutout.

It is one that Rockies fans haven't been treated to ve...

Mixed-league roto owners, are you looking for a waiver-wire pitcher before Friday's full slate of games?
Here's my free-agent choice (citing most 12-team leagues) for one day of relatively fantasy stardom:
