Colorado Rockies home bullpen: F

The Colorado Rockies bullpen has not had a good season overall. At one point, they looked as if they were pitching better (which, admittedly, wasn’t a high bar) but they have since regressed again.

Overall, at home, the Rockies bullpen has a team ERA of 5.32, which is 28th in baseball. The .270/.347/.480 slash line against them at home is 29th, 29th, and 30th among the 30 teams.

Colorado Rockies road bullpen: F

The Rockies road bullpen has been even worse than their home bullpen.

Their 5.50 road ERA is 29th in baseball and their .252/.362/.455 is very similar to their Coors numbers. Those numbers rank 24th, 30th, and 28th in baseball.

The bottom line with the bullpen is that with their nine-man bullpen, they haven’t had any more than three relievers be consistent at the same time and that’s being generous. It has mainly been one or two guys that have pitched consistent before they falter and then one or two others have a stretch of five or six appearances before they falter themselves.

Overall home rating: B+

The Colorado Rockies are equivalent to a 103 win team at Coors Field so this B+ rating may actually be a bit harsh but the bullpen knocks down their rating some.

Overall road rating: F

This comes as no surprise if you’ve read this far and/or if you have watched the Rockies on the road this year. A .162 winning percentage is equivalent to a 26-136 record for a full season so there’s really no other grade that you can give, unless you want to be even more harsh and create the F- grade for them.

If it existed, they would have that rating.

Overall rating: D+
