Rockies owner sticking to 90-win prediction

DENVER (AP) - Colorado Rockies owner Dick Monfort raised eyebrows this spring when he said on a Twitter chat that he thought his team could win 90 games so long as his players stayed healthy.

Despite losing two-fifths of his starting rotation already with Jhoulys Chacin (shoulder) and Tyler Chatwood (hamstring) on the DL, Monfort is sticking to his prediction as the Rockies get set to host Arizona in their home opener Friday.

The reason for his lone-wolf optimism - Colorado's starting pitching.

He figures Chatwood will be back by mid-month and Chacin should be back by the beginning of May if not sooner.
