The Rockies are among the best hitting teams in baseball, scoring the third-most runs and batting the highest average in baseball. But Colorado has been dismal in terms of pitching. Colorado's pitching staff has the worst ERA in Major League Baseball and has allowed more runs than any other team. 

Rumors have swirled that Colorado might try to trade franchise player Troy Tulowitzki for young talent, but Rockies owner Dick Monfort has stated that Tulowitzki will not be traded.
