Rockies_tulowitzki_hits_a045
Tulowitzki is one of the best in the game.In recent days, the question mark for the Colorado Rockies has swung from the starting pitchers, to the team's best player. When people talk about the Rockies, they are asking what is wrong with Troy Tulowitzki.The answer to that question is complicated. Baseball is such a game of highs and lows. It is a game where physical talent can quickly be dwarfed by the mental side of the game. A player can forget how good he is in a hurry and start to believe that he doesn't belong at that level.What is concerning about Tulowitzki's struggles have been that it isn't just limited to the offensive side of the game. He isn't only struggling with the bat and still bringing his gold glove into the field.Tulowitzki has played in 11 games so far in 2012. He has committed six errors, matching his total for the entire 2011 season. He has committed two errors in a game twice, matching his career total. Everyone knows about offensive slumps,...

Star SS Tulowitzki not in Rockies' lineup

Colorado star Troy Tulowitzki was out of the lineup Wednesday, a move Rockies manager Jim Tracy said he discussed with the All-Star shortstop a couple days ago. Tracy said the move was not a result of Tulowitzki's defensive struggles. The Rockies are off Thursday and then start a weekend series at Milwaukee. Tulowitzki made two errors Tuesday. He has six errors in 11 games...

A day later, Moyer downplays his accomplishment

Jamie Moyer wasn't overly sore or elated after his record-setting night. The 49-year-old Colorado Rockies lefty was pretty much business as usual Wednesday, the day after becoming the oldest pitcher to win a major league contest. After pitching seven sharp innings against San Diego, his arm was a little bit tired and his legs stiff. But that's typical for him after a start...

Moyer offered Hall of Fame internship

The 49-year-old Rockies pitcher has been formally offered a historian internship position by the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown.

Brewers open Rockies series behind Marcum

The Colorado Rockies depend on Troy Tulowitzki as much as the Milwaukee Brewers depend on reigning MVP Ryan Braun to provide a spark at the plate and in the field. Both will look to snap out of slumps when Milwaukee hosts Colorado in the opener of a three-game set Friday night. Tulowitzki hit 30 homers and drove in a career-high 105 runs while winning his second straight Gold Glove...

Hall of Fame offers Jamie Moyer internship

Jamie Moyer might have a new gig coming - if he ever stops pitching, that is. After hearing the 49-year-old Rockies lefty acknowledge he's not up on baseball history, the Hall of Fame offered him an internship to study in Cooperstown. In making the announcement Thursday, the Hall said there's ''an even more hands-on position awaiting the ageless wonder, if he ever...

Minor league team's funny Moyer promo

A minor league team is offering a promotion that pokes fun at Jamie Moyer, and it has nothing to do with his age. 

Fort Myers Miracle offer free ticket to fans who throw harder than old man Moyer

On the heels of 49-year-old Jamie Moyer’s historic victory Tuesday night, in a game in which he never  broke 80 mph on the radar gun through his seven innings of work, the Fort Myers Miracle have come up with a promotion that plays on Moyer’s lack of velocity for their Thursday night game.  The Twins Single-A affiliate is offering a free ticket to a future game to any person...

Jamie Moyer’s Mystical Changeup

Jamie Moyer made major league history Tuesday night in Colorado, becoming the oldest pitcher to record a win, at age 49. I’d also be willing to bet Moyer made history in another fashion: as the first non-knuckleball pitcher to record a win without cracking 80 MPH on the gun. Regardless of if my bet would pay, Moyer’s accomplishment is made all the more impressive by the low numbers...

Moyer becomes oldest pitcher to Win

After an 0-2 start to the season, it finally happened for Jamie Moyer, who stymied the Padres for seven innings Tuesday night. Moyer pitched around a pair of errors, both committed by shortstop Troy Tulowitzki (one throwing, one fielding), and held the Padres without an earned run. 

Minor league team offers free tickets to fans who throw harder than Jamie Moyer

As if Jamie Moyer becoming the oldest pitcher in MLB history to win a game wasn’t impressive enough, the 49-year-old lefty did so without throwing harder than 80 mph. Think about that for a second. Most above-average high school pitchers throw around that speed, if not harder. And here’s Jamie Moyer, at 49, retiring major league hitters regularly. Well the Fort Myers Miracle...

Jamie Moyer Becomes Oldest Pitcher Ever to win MLB game

The Colorado Rockies’ Jamie Moyer is now the oldest Major League Baseball pitcher ever to win a game after beating the San Diego Padres on April 17. The 49-year-old pitched seven innings in his team’s 5-3 win and the Hall of Fame has asked the left hander for some sort of memorabilia from the game which they can proudly display. Moyer said it’s pretty special...

Rockies 4, Brewers 3

Michael Cuddyer hit a tiebreaking RBI single off closer John Axford in the ninth inning Friday night, and the Colorado Rockies held on to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-3. Norichika Aoki hit an inside-the-park home run for Milwaukee in the fourth, the first major league homer for the former Japanese baseball batting champion. Aoki added a double and scored a run in the sixth. Todd...

Melancon's ERA & Tulowitzki's Errors

Boston Red Sox reliever Mark Melancon currently has a 49.50 ERA. In 4 appearances, he's pitched 2 innings allowing 10 hits, 11 runs, 5 homeruns and 2 walks. His WHIP is astronomically high at 6.00. That is crazy bad. Heading into the 2012 season, Melancon had only surrendered 7 homeruns in his entire career (112 IP over 3 years with the Yankees and Astros). Gotta believe things...

Jamie Moyer is My Hero

Jamie Moyer is my new hero.  On April 17, 2012, Moyer became the oldest pitcher in Major League Baseball history to win a game.  At the time of the victory, he was 49 year and 151 days old.  He broke an 80-year old record, set by the Brooklyn Dodgers’ Jack Quinn in 1932 at the age of 49 years, 70 days.  Moyer is the opposite of what I call the Boris Becker Effect.  On July...
