A -- I'm ready -- up in a fox sports dot com's first pitch I'm pleased to join our baseball analyst Jim -- to preview the Colorado Rockies in. Jim -- have some great young stars on the roster talking about Carlos Gonzales Troy Tulowitzki and Ubaldo and that's. All three guys had big years in 2010. And they do it again in 2000 what -- they better be able to over the Rockies this offseason committed until Liwienski for a 157. Million dollars. Another eighty million per Carlos Gonzales that's 230 million. Going forward on two players but look. -- thirty GM's if they could put any tandem of any two players in baseball in south and Tulowitzki will be almost every GM's choice they're that good. I expect great things I'm glad that Jim Tracy decided. -- for Carlos Gonzales in left field full time instead of moving around. No more left no more senator were right you just play one position and you just hit 34 homers last year 170 RBIs. He's got to repeat that especially playing in Coors Field and Troy Tulowitzki the leader of the team great range to both sides still continue to hit. Hit for average and hit for power now bottom and it is a number one starter there's no doubt about that. He wasn't as good as what he did in the first -- when he dominated the game and what's on pace to win thirty. And then the second half he slowed down a little bit but he wasn't as bad he slowed down. This guy won nineteen games last year I expect him to win. Twenty this year and be a Cy Young candidate -- other Rockies always seem to start slower -- they come charging at the end of the season. Don't think a quick start out of blocks would do this team some good it would do them some good and looked -- key to this team is going to be in the rotation after a man as. And -- -- or retailer Rose. This is where the focus needs to be. Coalition scene without question and Jason ham all the 34 starters are gonna have to win 1213 games it they're gonna stay in the pennant race. And then at that they start -- it's been a Rodgers or whether it's Aaron Cook. Or whether it's Paulino who they got from varmus and asked for a trade. Those guys are gonna have to produce at this Rockies team is gonna stay in the race all year with the Giants I authorities in Iraq's finishing in this division I think they're gonna -- second they got the second best team in the air and if he can stay healthy I know we had an early injury in spring training. But if he can stay healthy the one guy that might make his mark this year in terms of power is Ian Stewart there's always been. Thirty to forty home runs in the back. If he stays healthy maybe this is the year that he's able to do that I will keep an eye on him Jim as always great job that is -- for -- -- first pitch and remember.
