Fantasy Team Preview: Colorado Rockies

15

Ben Carsley

Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez stand out, but Coors Field can breathe fantasy life into just about anyone's bat.

The Colorado Rockies finished with a 74-88 record in 2013, good for last place in the National League West and tied for the fourth-worst record in the National League, and they didn’t add much talent this offseason. Despite the renowned 1-2 punch of Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez, it’s not unreasonable to take a cursory look at this organization, shake your head, and move on.

That said, Coors Field plays havoc with value in the fantasy world. Average pitchers become players to avoid. Average hitters become players to target. And anyone with even modest power becomes an automatic add on watch lists in just about every league.

Resident Fantasy Genius: One-Category Saviors: Strikeouts, Wins

0

Derek Carty

If an extra two wins or an extra two dozen strikeouts will make a big difference in your standings, here's where to look.

Over the past week, I’ve discussed the importance of prioritizing categorical impact over raw value with the season nearing an end. At this point I think I’ve given the concept more press than Psy is getting, and while "Gangnam Style" becomes no less brilliant play after play, I fear me talking anymore about this would have the opposite effect.  So, I’ll simply point you towards my one-category contributor articles for saves and homers and steals and invisible horse dance my way onto the meat of today’s article...

Wins
The best strategy when chasing wins is to play the match-ups, if you have the luxury of doing so in leagues with daily transactions and/or deep-ish free agent pools.  Ideally, you’ll target pitchers with good skills and potent offenses who are facing weak offenses.  Mixing and matching is almost certain to be better than rolling with a single starter come hell or high water.  Still, if you need to for whatever reason, here are a few to consider.

Fantasy Beat: Interview with Tout Wars NL Champ Steve Gardner

2

Jason Collette

A look into the mind of the champion of Tout Wars NL, Steve Gardner

At the end of every season, something I have always found helpful is to talk to the people who won their leagues to see how it all came together for them. Over the next couple of weeks, I will interview each of the three winners from Tout Wars to see what their secrets for success were in hopes that you can apply some of that wisdom to your own pursuit of 2012 fantasy success. The first interview was with USA Today’s Steve Gardner, who won the NL-only league by 8.5 points.

Collateral Damage: He's Not a Machine, He's a Man!

20

Corey Dawkins and Ben Lindbergh

Dustin Pedroia gets cold feet, Tommy John surgery claims another victim, Adam LaRoche learns why it's unwise to play through injuries, Matt Garza goes down, and the Phillies' non-ace searches for answers.

Even the biggest, baddest machine you can find on display at Home Depot is simple compared to the human body. It’s true of both machines and bodies that each component part has to fit and engage in a certain way for the whole to operate as intended. However, when a machine breaks down, a technician can swap out the faulty parts and restore normal function immediately, with no rehabilitation required. Machines: simple and effective. Humans: not so much. Just ask Duke.

Injuries always require rehabilitation and continuing treatment of some sort to heal fully. Of course, when surgery is required, even that relatively quick fix goes right out the window. It’s almost enough to make one wish that Skynet had become self-aware on schedule.

GM for a Day: Colorado Rockies

0

John Perrotto

A difficult decision might be just what this team needs to make it to the postseason in 2011.

Newly minted as the Rockies' general manager for a day, my emotional reaction is to blow it all up. After all, the Rockies collapsed in the last two weeks of the 2010 just when it seemed they were on the brink of a third post-season appearance in four years.

The left-hander will be a good buy for somebody on the free-agent market

He might not be Cliff Lee, but Jorge De La Rosa has as much value as any other starting pitcher on the free-agent market beside the Rangers left-hander. After being traded from the Royals to the Rockies in 2008, De La Rosa has dominated National League hitters. Here's how he's pitched over the last three seasons in Colorado:
