Michael Cuddyer is making O'Dowd look smart so far.Colorado Rockies general manager Dan O'Dowd takes his fair share of criticism from Rockies fans.Some of it, as he would probably admit, is deserved. He has made moves that have backfired. He has waited too long for prospects to develop, hindering their trade value.However, for the amount of criticism O'Dowd takes, he doesn't ever receive praise for the good moves that he does make.After the most disappointing season in franchise history in 2011, O'Dowd faced a huge decision. The decision was one that would risk his job.Years ago, O'Dowd was part of a group that was convinced to build from within. He believed that having patience with a farm system was the way to go. The plan worked. As the youth movement that caused great pains among Rockies fans came full circle, rewarding the patience of a fan base and a front office, O'Dowd was proven correct.However, a few years later, the plan wasn't working.

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...

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...

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...

MLB: C(older) Than the Rockies

Let’s start with who Rockies starter Jamie Moyer is younger than. It’s tough.  No, wait.  I can do this. He’s younger than Donald Trump, Marlboro cigarettes and aluminum foil.   He was born after the forming of the Beatles, but before their trip across the pond.   Cal Ripken Jr., who retired a decade ago, has two years on Moyer.  And he’s the Iron Man. In fact,...

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...
