For the top 20, I’ve listed them according to my ranking. I’ve also listed the...

The Colorado Rockies' up-and-down offense has contributed to a shaky start, and their defense hasn't been much better. They'll likely need improvement in both facets of the game to cool off the Arizona Diamondbacks in a three-game series starting Friday night at Coors Field. The Rockies (2-4) totaled 10 runs during a 1-3 start, but chased Tim Lincecum and pounded out...

Jeremy Guthrie plays catch with Twitter follower, cancer survivor Woody Roseland

More professional athletes should take the time to use their Twitter accounts the way that Jeremy Guthrie used his on Tuesday. With all the nonsense we see on Twitter and other forms of social media — much of which is posted by professional athletes — we tend to forget that these mediums can be used to do good things. When Guthrie tweeted Tuesday afternoon that he was looking...

Moyer faces Giants pitcher more than half his age

Jamie Moyer took the mound Thursday against a San Francisco pitcher who wasn't even born when he made his major league debut - the biggest age difference between starters in nearly a half-century. At 49, the Colorado Rockies' lefty is trying to become the oldest pitcher to win a game in big league history. He faced a steady 22-year old lefty in Madison Bumgarner - almost...

Giants Pummeled by Colorado Rockies 17-8

Last night felt lots like vintage Coors Field. The San Francisco Giants looked terrible defensively and on the mound last night against the Colorado Rockies. They committed three more errors and gave up 17 more runs. What figured to be a strength for San Francisco has turned into an Achilles heel in the early going. The Giants are dead last in the National League...
