And just one more thing: Rockies
We all saw all those young Rockies help in the playoff push and into the World Series. Well, guess what? There’s plenty more where that came from, as Lisa reports in her Rockies preview today. For her "just one more thing" subject, she’s got yet another young, electric arm. Doesn’t seem fair, does it?
Jhoulys Chacin, RHP: Normally I don’t like to write about guys whose names I can’t pronounce in
someone asks me to talk about them and I sound like an idiot (no comment, please)
… as long as I can spell it I’m good, right? But I’m making an exception for
right-hander Jhoulys Chacin (go on, say it, I dare you). In his US debut in 2007
he shared the Pioneer League lead with 77 strikeouts in 92 innings, posting a
3.13 ERA. The 20-year-old has good command of a lively sinking fastball in the
low 90s and some fine secondary offerings in his curveball and changeup.
