Colorado Rockies: 2019 Season and Player Predictions
The Boys had a great second half and went 41-27 to get into the playoffs. the point is, the Rockies need a consistent season and if they do it, they can win well over 90 games and blow my prediction out of the water. Yes, every team goes through lulls during a 162 game season, but if you can limit them, you’re going to be a great baseball team.
On the offensive side, I think the Rockies should be fine. Second base is obviously a bit of a question mark, but I think most people will come to trust McMahon and Hampson as the season goes along. Both players just need consistent at bats and the one that needs it the most, McMahon, will get them.
Realistically, with full seasons from all the position players they should have at least seven players with 15 home runs and five or six with 20. Ian Desmond has looked sharp in Spring Training and should be a lock for a bounce back year in terms of on-base percentage and batting average.
Trevor Story may regress a little bit, but a 30 homer, 100 RBI season should still be in the cards. Nolan will be Nolan and I wouldn’t be surprised if he has one of those years where he gives the voters no choice but to award him NL MVP.
