The season for the Colorado Rockies may be near its breaking point with the 10 ½ games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League West division.

They might want to start thinking about next season and try to salvage what they can from the rest of this season. The biggest issue with the team right now is their pitching, as they are last in the NL with a 4.32 ERA from their pitching and they have allowed 514 runs.

Thoughts Going Forward:

The Rockies have a good offense, but they will need to develop some pitchers within their farm system. It will be hard for them to attract free agents to come and pitch in Coors Field.

Carlos Gonzalez is one of premier offensive players in baseball, and play stellar defense in the outfield. He gives the Rockies a great power combination in their lineup along with Tulowiitzki. He has a .302 batting average and a .958 OPS on the season. Gonzalez is second in the NL with 26 HRs and is seventh in with 70 RBIs. He is always a threat to steal bases, with him stealing 21 bases this season and has only been caught three times. He is fifth in the NL with six Triples, and has 113 hits overall. He leads the NL in Total Bases with with 231 and is second in AB per HR at 15. He is a nightmare for opposing pitchers with two and runners in scoring position with a .293/.408/1.067 triple-slash to include 18 RBIs in this situation.
