CarGo’s slump is back

Last year, CarGo had one of his worst seasons of his entire career. However, he somewhat redeemed himself in September, helping pace the Rockies to the Wild Card.

Gonzalez went to the free agent market and had little success. The Rockies re-signed CarGo when no one else would take him.

Unfortunately, if we are going off of Thursday night’s game against the Diamondbacks (0-4 with a pair of strikeouts). He redeemed himself somewhat on Friday night with a 2-for-4 night. However, I see CarGo’s career is on the decline. There is little chance that he will have as bad of a season as he did last year … but I don’t see much improvement this year.

Conclusion

Again, these predictions are based off of the performances from early games. There are a lot more games to be played and many unexpected events to occur.

I predict the Dodgers to take the NL (as usual). But I believe the Rockies will be in a tight race for the Wild Card slot with the Diamondbacks. If the Rockies make the playoffs, I don’t expect them to go very far.
