***For my regular audience (all three of you), I took a few days off from Rockies Review as I traveled to Minneapolis with friends to check out Target Field over the weekend. I always strive to cover every single game, and have come close to that in the four years that this blog has been in existence, but without the time or ability to watch the games live, or after the fact, I felt that it would be better to take the weekend off. If you ever get a chance to see Target Field, take it. The park is phenomenal. Thank you for your patience and understanding***Alex White hit his first career home run on Monday night.For Colorado Rockies fans, it doesn't matter if the team is 25 games under .500. It doesn't matter if the season is the worst in franchise history. When the Rockies beat the San Francisco Giants, it is a good day.That is what happened on Monday night after the Rockies returned home from a disappointing weekend in Philadelphia, and a bad road trip in which they went ju...

Wilin Rosario has been far better than expected offensively.On Tuesday night at Coors Field, the Colorado Rockies saw the sense of urgency that comes from a team playing for the postseason. After holding a 4-0 lead, the Rockies let the Giants crawl back, and eventually run away with victory. After a late rally, the Rockies lost 9-8.At this point, the Rockies are simply playing out...
Colorado Rockies rookie catcher Wilin Rosario wasn't supposed to play Monday. He was scheduled to get a night off after a difficult defensive weekend at Philadelphia that included a brutal Sunday, when he was charged with four passed balls. Rosario was going to get a chance to rest, regroup and get away from the action. Instead, he ended up pinch-running in the fourth inning...
The Colorado Rockies have been the worst defensive team in the National League all season. But they were absolutely awful Sunday while getting swept in a doubleheader by the Phillies by scores of 3-2 and 7-4. Rookie catcher Wilin Rosario was charged with four passed balls in Game 1, two of them coming in the ninth inning when the Phillies scored and made losing pitcher Matt Belisle...
Last week, I had the opportunity to do a behind the scenes tour of Coors Field, in Denver. Actually, anyone can do the tour if you buy a ticket. I bought a $7 ticket and I took a look at the stadium that is one mile above sea level.
Coors Field is located in downtown Denver, near Interstate 25. There is also a light rail station nearby so accessibility is provided for people...
Rockies pitcher Alex White homered and Colorado finally solved a struggling Ryan Vogelsong, beating the San Francisco Giants 6-5 Monday night to snap a five-game losing streak.
Buster Posey and Hunter Pence went deep for the Giants, who lost for only the second time in 10 road games. San Francisco's lead in the NL West was trimmed to five games over the idle Los Angeles Dodgers...
The Phils sweep their make-up doubleheader, sweeping the series in the process, as they defeat the Rockies by the score of 3-2 and 7-4.
The Rockies took the lead in the first game of the twinbill in the second as, with two men on, and with two men out, DJ LeMathieu hits an RBI single, knocking in Wilin Rosario, who had started the inning off with a single, then stopped at second...
The Colorado Rockies haven't had much go according to plan this season. One pleasant surprise this year has been the play of rookie catcher Wilin Rosario, who most thought would spell free agent acquisition Ramon Hernandez a few times a week while acclimating himself to the Majors.
