Jhoulys Chacin had a glorious return to the Rockies.Suffering Colorado Rockies fans were reminded on Tuesday night why they had so much hope heading into the 2012 season.Jhoulys Chacin returned from a nearly four month absence due to injury and looked like the Chacin that the Rockies thought was going to be their future ace before he became the first of many head-scratchers that the Rockies have encountered in this failed season. Tuesday saw Chacin help the Rockies to a 6-2 victory.Chacin pitched brilliantly. He gave the Rockies six innings, giving up just one run on four hits. He didn't walk anyone and struck out two. The return to the mound had Rockies fans wondering what might have been had the Venezuelan been healthy all season long.The right-hander had his good stuff on Tuesday, baffling Mets batters all night long with a slider that had as good of movement as the Rockies have seen since he made his debut in 2009.Chacin was good, but for a while it looked like he might get ...

The 26-year-old recorded two of the Rockies six hits...

Jhoulys Chacin made an impressive return from an extended absence and the Colorado Rockies backed him with a pair of sharp defensive plays, beating the New York Mets 6-2 Tuesday night.

Jordan Pacheco hit a two-run homer (#2 on the season) and Dexter Fowler doubled in a run to drive the Rockies to a win at home over Florida in the series finale. Colorado won despite starter Drew Pomeranz walking four and giving up a homer in but four innings of work.
Pacheco is hitting .312 now and his bat looks like it will keep him in the majors. Without more...
Friday night in Colorado, Giancarlo Stanton hit a home run. It was a long home run; it was the longest home run, of this season. This is what it looked like, and ESPN’s Home Run Tracker gave it a distance of 494 feet. The game was played at altitude, sure, but the wind was blowing in. Then Saturday in Colorado, Stanton hit another long home run. That one had a distance of 465 feet...

NEW YORK -- With many of their everyday players learning on the job as major leaguers and a four-man rotation that necessitates a "piggyback" reliever for each starter, a lot has to go right for the Colorado Rockies to win a game. But each Rockies win provides a hint at the long-term promise of a team enduring a rough season. Jonathan Herrera raced home on a passed ball...

The above is an actual fortune that I got in my cookie during Monday's Mets game. I couldn't think of a more fitting message in my wrapped in plastic dessert. The Mets had a Cy Young candidate on the mound. The Rockies had Charlie Blackmon, Jordan Pacheco, Andrew Brown, Wilin Rosario, Tyler Colvin, DJ LeMahieu, and Jonathan Herrera in their starting lineup. This team'...
