First Round matchup in the Humidor Region
Due to the cancellation of the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Basketball Tournaments, Purple Row is hosting our own Rockies Madness Tournament this year. We selected the 36 best players in Rockies history in order to figure out who the best player is in franchise history. We sorted them into four regions in order to force the most interesting matchups: Infielders, Outfielders, Mile High (for relievers and starting pitchers who began their career before the humidor), and Humidor (for starters who began their career after the humidor). All stats are from Baseball-Reference.
Today is Round 1 in the Humidor Region: No. 1 Ubaldo Jiménez vs. No. 8 Jhoulys Chacín
Ubaldo Jiménez, Starting Pitcher
3rd place NL Cy Young (2010)
Jhoulys Chacín, Starting Pitcher
