The 2011 season is in the books and it’s interesting to see how the Rockies fared in 2011. Coors Field was a big time hitters park again and that helped boost the Rockies offense to put them as the second best in the NL. They finished fourth in batting average but third in OPS.
Troy Tulowitzki led the way with another great seaosn. He belted 30 home runs and drove in 105 despite missing some time. Carlos Gonzalez was also on the shelf but he hit 26 home runs and drove in 92. Todd Helton had another nice season with an .850 OPS in 124 games at the ripe age of 37.
Mark Ellis once again missed quite a bit of time and he was ineffective at the plate. He hit just six home runs in 70 games and with an .317 OBP. Ty Wiggington also struggled and he had an OPS of just .731. That probably doesn’t sound as bad as it does considering he plays in Coors Field.
So the Rockies were good, but some of that was because of the park. If they can get another big bat to complement Tulowitzki and Gonzalez, it would go a long towards the Rockies contending in 2012.
