'08 RAPs: Colorado Rockies

As I said about ten minutes ago, the Rockies made the playoffs thanks to a bad call at the end of their one game playoff against San Diego. However, I'll give them that they had one of the greatest stretch runs in baseball history.
Here are the Rockies off-season moves:
-Signed catcher Yorvit Torrealba to a two-year contract.
-Signed outfielder Scott Podsednik to a minor league contract.

Pitching Staff:
SP1: Jeff Francis
SP2: Aaron Cook
SP3: Ubaldo Jimenez
SP4/5: Mark Redman/Franky Morales
CL: Manny Corpas
SUM: Brian Fuentes

C: Yorvit Torrealba
1B: Todd Helton
2B: Jason Nix/Jeff Baker
SS: Troy Tulowitzki
3B: Garret Atkins
LF: Matt Holliday
CF: Willy Taveras
RF: Brad Hawpe

Easiest- The Rockies won't make the playoffs.
Boldest- Troy Tulowitzki will hit under .260.
Team MVP/Best Season- Matt Holliday (40-50 HRs, 130 RBI)
Breakout Player/Best Pitcher- Manny Corpas (40 sv., sub 1.00 ERA)
