Hip hip, Jorge! (Rox would die without him)
We all know Jorge De La Rosa is good, but how good is he?
Jake Shapiro from Rockies Zingers answered that question on Twitter yesterday afternoon:
The Colorado Rockies would (roughly) be about 53-87 without De La Rosa this year.
Granted, they are only 58-82 with him, but five games of difference makes a huge difference, even if it doesn’t feel like it. Thank goodness for Jorge.
