Carlos Gonzalez, Colorado Rockies
Tribute to 1993 Post
by Goose Joak
Quite a player and just 24 years old. Put up a Woah!-BA (or if you prefer, wOBA) of of .378 last year. That puts him in good company: Evan Longoria, Ryan Zimmermann, Victor Martinez territory. Ahead of Matt Kemp, even. Also has back to back years of 10+ UZR/150s, which puts him in the top 10% of outfielders, if it were a full season.
The Rockies have a lot of good outfielders -- Hawpe, Gonzalez, Fowler, Seth Smith -- even Spilborghs was considered a good sleeper going into 2009. Then there's Eric Young, a better fantasy player than real player. But still -- the Rockies are loaded with OF talent going into 2010.
