Dexter Fowler has emerged as a serious All-Star candidate.Maybe Tony Robbins was wrong when he famously said "by changing nothing, nothing changes."The biggest complaint about the Colorado Rockies after losing 98 games in 2012 was that they stood pat with their roster. The only changes that were made came in the form of management and coaches. However, a large part of the team that played with little life, made excuses, and routinely got outplayed and beaten would be back to take the field in 2013.Well, through one month of the season, the players on this Rockies team look very much the same as 2012, but they play entirely differently.On Wednesday night in Los Angeles, the Rockies put together another impressive offensive performance in a 7-3 win over the Dodgers. With Josh Beckett on the mound, the Rockies plated three runs in the first inning, then, after Juan Nicasio allowed the Dodgers to tie the game up, the Rockies bounced back and scored four more runs.Carlos Gonzal...

It was a fun month of April for Rockies fans.The month of April ended with the Colorado Rockies in first place in the National League West.Imagine that. Imagine someone saying that the club that many experts were predicting to lose 100 or more games was finished with one-sixth of the season in first place. No one would have believed it, but plenty of run down Rockies fans would have...
The Colorado Rockies have signed veteran starting pitcher Roy Oswalt to a minor league deal. On the cusps of being out of baseball permanently, the veteran seems to be grabbing onto the last morsel of interest as the Rockies are pretty desperate for pitching help. Having a horrible season in 2012 with the Texas Rangers, Oswalt is no more than a hopeful stop-gap in an increasingly...
The veteran right hander, Roy Oswalt, may be inching closer to getting some Major League work. Much like last season, Oswalt will have to start in the minors and prove he is ready for a Major League role. This time, though, he will be doing so in the Colorado Rockies' organization.
Oswalt gave us a hint of what was coming yesterday before the news broke, then Troy Renick...
As a rule, we fantasy leaguers love to own prospects before our fellow owners. There’s little as rewarding as grabbing a minor leaguer before he becomes a household name and then watching as he develops into a stud. But how do you sort the Tony Cingranis from the Brandon Maurers? Prospect Profile is here to help. This week we examine recent Rockies call-up, Nolan Arenado.Player...
Roy Oswalt signed a minor league deal with the Rockies.The Colorado Rockies continue to surprise the baseball world.As they begin a homestand against the Tampa Bay Rays and the New York Yankees, the Rockies are in the midst of one of the toughest stretches of the season.Before flying to Arizona, the Rockies played three against the best team in baseball, the Atlanta Braves.

Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez each hit two-run doubles, and center fielder Dexter Fowler robbed Adrian Gonzalez of what would have been his second home run of the game, leading the Colorado Rockies to a 7-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night.
Reliever Josh Outman (1-0) got credit for the victory in the rubber game of the series, allowing one hit over two...
Colorado Rockies outfielder Dexter Fowler left the game against the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday night after hurting his right hip flexor trying to beat out a bunt.
Fowler appeared to run into Rays first baseman Sean Rodriguez at the bag on a close play in the fourth inning. Fowler then gingerly limped toward the dugout and was replaced in center by Eric Young Jr. to start the fifth...
The New York Yankees acquired infielder Reid Brignac from the Colorado Rockies for cash, adding a lefty bat to the group of backups filling in for the team's injured stars.
''He played shortstop, second, third. A fly-ball hitter, so we're going to see if we can take advantage of the left-handed bat at Yankee Stadium. He's a very good fielder, more so than a bat...
Not a lot of people are buying into the Colorado Rockies as a legitimately good team, but they do apparently have one player who thinks they are for real. After spending the off-season saying that he was only interested in signing with a contender, Roy Oswalt has jumped about the Rockies bandwagon, inking a minor league deal with the club.
For Oswalt, this smacks of desperation...
Throughout the course of any season, there is always a game that the fans and players just want to forget. This game was exactly that – an ugly game by the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Before starter Ted Lilly was even able to record an out, the Colorado Rockies had jumped out to a four run lead and the 31,570 fans who came out to Blue Heaven on Earth for an enjoyable Monday night of baseball...
As we open another week of fantasy baseball, we close a door on the month of April. The first month of the year has been stellar to watch, with some new faces and non-household names making their cases early on. Players like Dexter Fowler, that has never hit over 13 HRs (last season), is on pace to break 30 without a sweat (8 in 25 games). John Buck is definitely the most noteworthy...
