Rockpile Files: First Half Awards

81 games in the book.テつ Exactly halfway home.

Although I’d settle for a 163rd game if it came to that.

For some reason, 42-39 doesn’t feel as good as it should after starting 18-28.テつ I guess that’s what happens when you lose two-of-three to the lowly snakes. Bad, bad taste in my mouth from that.

All in all, can’t be too disappointed with the goings on so far.

Being exactly halfway makes right now exactly the right time to recognize the best of the best in a roller coaster three months.テつ Here are the nominees and winners of my own personal Rockies awards.テつ I’m an academy of one.テつ No input from anyone else is needed.テつ Though feedback is welcomed.

Best Manager

  • Clint Hurdle
  • Jim Tracy

Winner: Jim Tracy

This would have been a lot closer if Hurdle were fired sooner.

Best Pitcher

  • Aaron Cook
  • Jason Hammel
  • Ubaldo Jimenez
  • Jason Marquis
  • Huston Street

Winner: Jason Marquis

Who would have thought this competition would be so heated?テつ You know Aaron Cook is going to do well consistently.テつ Jimenez has stepped up another level.テつ Jason Hammel has been an absolute steal.テつ Huston Street is nearly untouchable in the 9th inning with a lead.

Yet, hands down, All-Star Jason Marquis is the choice.テつ I’ll have more to say about him later in the week.

Most Valuable Person

  • Brad Hawpe
  • Dr. Robert Watkins (Todd Helton’s Back Surgeon)
  • Jason Marquis
  • Dan O’Dowd
  • Huston Street

Winner: Dan O’Dowd

I said person.テつ O’Dowd has to get credit for his handling of the roster.テつ Three off season trades that have heavily favored the Rockies.テつ Pulled the trigger on a critical managerial change.テつ Played a part in what may turn out to the best draft the Rockies have had.テつ A real solid job all around.

Best Former Oakland Athletic

  • Alan Embree
  • Carlos Gonzalez
  • Matt Murton
  • Greg Smith
  • Huston Street

Winner: Huston Street

I created an award just for him. Best Reliever was an option… until I realized no one else could be nominated. Imagine the bullpen without him?テつ Nauseating feeling, isn’t it?

Best Home Run

Winner: Todd Helton

Because nothing is better than watching Todd Helton jump into the mosh pit.
