On Saturday, Rockies pitcher Alex White was pulled over under suspicion of DUI, and after a breathalyzer and field sobriety tests, he was brought into custody. His BAC was .174, which crushed the .08 limit that the state of Arizona has. Now, White could be facing something worse than the DUI: a charge for extreme DUI. The Denver Post is reporting that if White's blood test results confirm the .174 reading from Saturday, that the extreme DUI charge will be given to White. What exactly does extreme DUI consist of? Well, we're going to let the state of Arizona explain that to you. First-time Extreme DUI CLASS OF CRIME Class 1 Misdemeanor MAXIMUM JAIL Six (6) months MINIMUM JAIL 30 days COUNSELING A drug/alcohol screening will be performed.

Where have you gone Marco Scutaro? Our infield turns to you

I was just as surprised as anyone when I heard the news that Marco Scutaro had been traded. It had been pretty clear after last season that Lowrie wasn't the answer so not bringing him back was an obvious choice - but the Scutaro thing really left me puzzled. Marco wasn't going to wow anybody with the glove and yeah his arm left a lot to be desired. But the guy could hit...

Knock Troy Tulowitzki for his injuries, but he’s proven that he’s the game’s best shortstop.

Look at this man. See how he brings his massive intellect to bear on his lineup card, searching with all his might for any small advantage.  Few people in history have been so universally praised for their tactical insight as this fellow.

LeMahieu flashes leather around infield

The fifth starter's job isn't the only battle going on here at Rockies Spring Training. The last few bench spots on the 25-man roster are up for grabs. Charlie Blackmon seems to have the inside track on the 4th outfielder job, but the team is also going to carry a backup infielder. It's early in camp, but that job very well could go to D.J. LeMahieu.
