WILIN ROSARIO NEWS

Player Profile #187: Wilin Rosario | C | COL

Last year Wilin Rosario’s HR/FB rate fell, but his average fly ball distance went up. Wait, what? It’s true according to Baseball Heat Maps: Rosario’s average fly ball distance, 2012-2014 (Courtesy: BaseballHeatMaps.com) When it comes to analyzing Rockies’ batters, I’ve learned the numbers are often beyond comprehension. There’s just no analogous situation to playing...

Van Slyke, Rosario should be on Indians radar

I was originally going to talk about the A’s for this week’s column, but that article was pushed back after some breaking news on Tuesday. Now to many these bits of news might have completely missed their radar and while that is fair I think both should have an effect on the Indians. At the very least I hope that these two situations make the Indians stop and consider the new...

Hey Rockies, don’t rid of Rosario just yet

Pitching woes and the Colorado Rockies have become synonymous. It has undoubtedly been the biggest weak spot of the franchise since its berth two decades ago. And watching Madison Bumgarner single handedly win the World Series for the San Francisco Giants was evidence of how important pitching is to a team’s post season success. But recent talks in Denver have many demanding a...

What’s in Store for the Rockies this Offseason? Part I

The Rockies offseason began in relative upheaval when long-tenured GM Dan O’Dowd and Director of Major League Operations Bill Geivett resigned.  For a front office that had been notably resistant to change, it will be interesting to see what direction new GM Jeff Bridich takes the franchise. Bridich hopes to bring a breath of fresh air to a Rockies franchise looking to reach the...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Disappointments — Catchers

Source: Victor Decolongon/Getty Images North America If sports are anything, they are great sources of drama. The major networks now pay billions of dollars to broadcast major professional and college sports. As they say, live sports are TIVO proof.

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Revisiting Rankings

Preseason rankings are always fun. And futile. Everything a ranker thinks he know, seems to go out the window soon after the first pitch of the season is thrown. Sure, any ranker will get some right. And they’ll undoubtedly get some wrong that seem stupid in retrospect. As humans we see what we wish to see. Oh, this guy has a platoon split? He’ll get it figured out. This dude...

2014 Catcher Recap: The Flop Five

The 2014 fantasy baseball season has ended. I’m not one for superlatives or useless “Who was this season’s fantasy MVP?!” stuff because — let’s be honest — that doesn’t help you moving forward. But end-of-season recaps are a necessity as they bring a sense of closure and tie up any remaining loose ends, so over the next week or two we’ll recap what we saw from...

What Happened to Wilin Rosario?

After a breakout 2013 season in which Wilin Rosario hit .292 with 21 home runs, fantasy owners had high hopes entering the 2014 season. Unfortunately, he struggled for the first two months of the season before ultimately finding his way the last four months of the season. During the first two months of the year he had a .225/.261/.395 slash line with a .240 BABIP. In the last four...

6 Months Of Pitching And 4.5 Months Of Hitting Now Complete

Around six months ago, your mother left us in the middle of the night with nothing but each other and our drafted fantasy teams.

By Anthony Weber Player of Week- Wilin Rosario (9/15-9/21) The Colorado Rockies as a team this 2014 MLB season are near the top of every batting statistical category.  Getting hits and scoring runs has not been the problem for this team that has the third worst record in baseball.  The trouble for the Rockies is that they have not been able to outscore their opponents, despite...

Dugout Digest – do or die for the Brewers

This is really a last gasp for the Milwaukee Brewers. After a crushing 3-2, 13 inning loss to the Cardinals on Thursday, the Brewers are six games back of St. Louis in the NL Central, and 3.5 games behind the Pirates for the NL’s second Wild Card spot. You can pretty much count out the division at this point, but Milwaukee still has a shot at the Wild Card, especially given that...
