The Coors Field Effect on This Year's Colorado Rockies

It is true almost every year, but especially in this young 2014 season, that the Colorado Rockies have an offense that no other team in the major leagues can hope to match, thanks to the obscene run environment of their home park Coors Field. I say obscene because in the history of major league stadiums (a history that really dates back to the 1910s with the construction of Wrigley Field, Fenwa

That's an interesting angle I hadn't considered. I'll check it out if I can.

Interesting stuff Marciano. I have become more fascinated by the Rockies since my girlfriend's parents live in Denver. When we go to visit I find myself getting unusually winded walking up a couple flights of stairs. To your knowledge has anybody done any studies about visiting pitchers' velocities and whether or not they can maintain it through 100 pitches? I couldn't even imagine pitching 6 or 7 innings without being able to acclimate to the lower oxygen levels without completely losing stamina by the 3rd or 4th inning.

Here's a look, position by position, to see if the Sox have been playing above, at, or below the projected level coming into the season. Toward the bottom, I look at what to expect for the rest of the season. All projections and WAR figures from BP. Would like to hear your thoughts:

C - Below: The combo of A.J. and Ross was expected to produce at or above

When do we start to worry about Bogaerts' D at short?

Most of us were in agreement prior to opening day - give Xander Bogaerts every chance to prove that he either can or can't handle shortstop defensively. Sticking at short would maximize his long term value and, if it doesn't work out, a move to other positions would be possible.

I haven't seen nearly enough Red Sox games this season but have witnessed a few bad plays and heard the rumblin

Got it. No context - should have made a diving attempt and probably made the play. With context - smart play. Man on first, two outs is not a threatening situation but if he dives and misses it...

Bottom of the 10th, nobody on, two out. (It's down there in the corner, partially cut off but the information is present.) I just wanted to see if people thought he could catch it, not analyzing his decision, that's why I kept it practically free of comment.
