This is an interesting week for This Week in Purple because the Rockiesí good and bad from the past week was fairly equal. In fact, Iíd go so far as to say that what you focused on more over the Rockiesí first seven games indicates whether your a glass half full or glass half empty person. If youíre a glass half full person, you just canít stop thinking about how dang good the pitching was. If youíre a glass half empty person, the fact that youíve been satisfied when the Rockies get an infield hit keeps you up at night. We have a pretty clear good and bad, so letís get into it. What was badThe offense. The offense was bad. And thereís a lot of startling evidence for the glass half emptyers to pull from. The Rockies, as a team, hit .197/.245/.283 over their first seven games George Bell Jersey , which amounts to a wRC+ of 28. The teamís wOBA is .234, 26th worst in baseball. And that all includes the two games in which the Rockies actually hit. In the final four games of the opening road series, the Rockies scored just two runs. They were lucky to go 1-3 in those contests. An incredible play by Nolan Arenado was all that stood between it being a single run scored in four consecutive losses. There are some caveats though. First and foremost, itís only seven games! The Rockies also tend to play horribly in Florida. They donít play in Tampa often, but of all the ballparks in which the Rockies have played at least 300 games, their team OPS at Marlins Park (.621) is second worst to Atlantaís Fulton County Stadium (.613). The caveat to the caveat, however Dave Winfield Jersey , is that the offense was the teamís biggest weakness in 2018, and starting out this way can lead to legitimate worry about whether or not the Rockiesí starting rotation can be good enough to bail out the offense a second year in a row. What was goodSpeaking of pitching, it has been very good! Mostly! The teamís collective ERA is a respectable 3.54, which is 14th best in baseball as of Thursday afternoon. And the rotation has had more quality starts (4) than not (3). Even better, German M谩rquez and Kyle Freeland have pretty much picked up where they left off last season. Theyíve combined to give up just five runs in 242鈦? innings pitched. Also, M谩rquezís ERA+ is 652 right now. Thereís a caveat here as well though. Both Chad Bettis and Tyler Anderson threw clunkers, which is a reminder that however good the top of the rotation is Jack Morris Jersey , itís not so solid at the bottom. What else was goodLast week, I wrote about watching the first game of the series on my phone while at a hotel room in Chicago ó it was a mix of good and bad. Iím traveling again this week, but this time itís just away from one home and to another. Iím in Denver for opening weekend baseball, and itís going to be above freezing! Iím also grateful for the chance to meet some of our readers at Purple Rowís Opening Day breakfast. This is all good. What was good for you this week? Everything is slow again :("According to LEN3 of the Star Tribune, the Twins are going to be boring for a bit longer here and wait for the market to develop further before making any more signings. I assume this means that the Twins will sign Nelson Cruz this afternoon to make everyone seem wrong. Thatís fine, but it isnít fun to write about. What about MY job Falvine???The same link talks about the Twins interest in relief pitcher Kelvin Herrera whom youíll likely remember from his long time spent as a Kansas City Royal. Signing Herrera would be very very in-character for the Twinkies as he is almost kinda old (it hurts typing that sentence as heís 28 and the same age as me.) and performed poorly last year before ultimately getting season ending surgery. Still heís young enough to potentially regain old form and would be another low-risk high-reward pickup. Go 28 Year olds!The Twins did select someone in the Rule 5 Draft, it was just that it was during the AAA portion http://www.bluejaysfanproshop.com/authentic-curtis-granderson-jersey , which is perhaps the least interesting draft in the history of the various meanings of the word draft. Still his name is Dusten Knight and thatís a rad last name and I look forward to the opportunity to weave him into some Kyle Gibson fantasy world fan-fiction. You can read actual analysis over at Puckettís Pond.This article about NBA player/video game icon Charles Barkley has nothing to do with baseball, but I enjoyed reading about him and his good friend, a Chinese immigrant and cat littler scientist. Should have been a buddy cop movie, really.Todayís soundtrack is the remixed theme from Space Jam that served as the title theme to Barkley Shut Up and Jam Gaiden, which is the best game ever written.
