Colorado Rockies trade rumors: Jorge De La Rosa edition

It’s been a rough year for the Colorado Rockies. They got out to a nice start, but things have been downhill from there. As of now they own a 43-62 record, which puts them in last place in the NL West.

GUEST POST: History in Denver suggests that altitude shouldn't be an excuse for the Colorado Rockies

The Rockies use the altitude as an excuse.BY: TOM OLSONThe Denver Bears and Denver Zephyrs played baseball at altitude and played the game with success.  The City of Denver (as far as I know) has not shrunk in height over the years, as some older people do.  It is still the same altitude now as it has always been.  The climate has probably changed since the Denver Bears and Denver...

Connor’s Corner: While Tulowitzki Fits, Gonzalez Does Not

All the buzz surrounding the Mets this week as the trade deadline fast approaches has been about Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki.

With the trade deadline looming and a pitching staff with an ERA near five, the Rockies would figure to be a seller on the market.

Troy Tulowitzki: The must haves and the must avoids

Over the last few weeks, the Mets seem to have a different overall energy than they had in May or June resulting in a positive opening to the second half and each day the possibility grows that October baseball could return to Queens.

Rumors are running wild because the Mets allegedly made a phone call to the Colorado Rockies declaring their interest in acquiring either Troy Tulowitzki, who leads the National League in hitting, or Carlos Gonzalez, who is currently in the middle of one of his worst seasons as a pro. I’m not a fan of sacrificing huge...
