Yesterday, Jon Morosi of MLB.com and MLB Network published an article talking about how the NL West is wide open. One person that he spoke to for the article was Jeff Bridich, the Rockies general manager. He called out Rockies “ace” Jon Gray for his inconsistent start to 2018 but to find the person who is at fault for the Rockies being under .500 nearly half way into June, it’s not just Jon Gray
Since May 30, the Colorado Rockies have gone 2-9 and as a result, they have dropped from first place in the NL West to fourth place. Quite frankly, with the way they have been playing in 2018 thus far, it was amazing that the Rockies were in first place at all.
When the pitching staff was doing it’s job, the offense couldn’t hit their way out of a paper bag. Now that the offense is picking it up, the pitching (and particularly the bullpen) can’t keep the ball in the ballpark and when they do, they are still getting pounded.
Jeff Bridich spoke to Jon Morosi of MLB.com and MLB Network about the teams inconsistencies, including the bullpen among other things. But his most intriguing part was on Jon Gray.
