Sweet Home Colorado.
For all of you who think Colorado has been affected greatly by those humidors, here are the differences in Home OPS compared to road OPS, among the eight everyday players in the Rockies lineup.
Torrealba: +.177 (percentage points greater than that of their road OPS)
This is an average, of a player in the starting lineup’s OPS being 168 percentage points higher at home, than on the road.
As far as the whole offense is concerned, the difference between the cumulative (team) Home and Road OPS’ are greatest in Colorado. It is .119 points at higher at home in Colorado than that of in the away games. The next highest team is Arizona which is a difference of .83. The average difference is .48, meaning that Colorado’s split is .71 points higher than the average.
Not to mention the staff ERA at home is 4.29, and on the road it is 4.39, which isn’t a huge difference, but still it is better on the road. They are fourth in ERA in the NL on the road, but fall to 12th at home.
Just take this into consideration when the balloting takes place.
