28.  Colorado Rockies

The Rockies are an odd team. They certainly have the pieces to be a competitive team, with Carlos Gonzalez and Charlie Blackmon in the outfield, and Troy Tulowitzki and Nolan Arenado manning the infield. However, the MLB is not built on offense alone. If it were, the Rockies would have been contenders for the last few years. The fact of the matter is though, that the Rockies have offense, but they don’t have anyone that can shut down the opposing team’s offense. Jorge de la Rosa has been good at times, but he has never been able to convert his talent into a full season, having a sub-4.00 ERA twice over his eleven year career. With de la Rosa leading the rotation, Tulowitzki and Gonzalez off and on the shelf, and the Rockies not having made any significant moves to improve the rotation, they will likely remain in the lower tier of MLB teams.

    How do you not mention Justin Morneau in the Rockies section when you talk about how much talent they have? He just won the batting title…
