DENVER — The Rockies got old fast this offseason. They have become the anti-Hollywood. While society is obsessed with staying young, the Rockies’ projected opening day lineup figures to jump from 28.4 to 32.4 years old.
If the players are better, it doesn’t matter if they are older. But the figure paints a clear picture of the Rockies’ striking transformation this offseason. Colorado is expected to have five new starters when it faces the Houston Astros on April 6 at Minute Maid Park.
The likely changes with last year’s starter listed with their 2011 opening day age: Catcher Ramon Hernadez (36) for Chris Iannetta (27), second baseman Marco Scutaro (36) for Jose Lopez (28), third baseman Casey Blake (38) for Ty Wigginton (33), right fielder Michael Cuddyer (33) for Seth Smith (28), pitcher Jeremy Guthrie (32) for Ubaldo Jimenez (27).
The makeover was the result of general manager Dan O’Dowd’s desire to add mentally-tougher players, and the club’s need to buy time for developing pros...

Numbers, however, can be deceiving in the hitting-rich American League East. Especially considering that...
When he was with the Baltimore Orioles pitcher Jeremy Guthrie was the ace of the staff. He didn’t have ace stuff but on that staff it’s what he was. What’s interesting though is he’s gone to a slightly more competitive team in the Colorado Rockies and has a legitimate chance at becoming that teams ace.
I never thought this was a possibility especially with Jhoulys...
DENVER — Any doubt how much the Rockies’ value Matt Belisle was erased over the last few days. Colorado signed the right-handed reliever two a new contract and then traded co-setupman Matt Lindstrom to the Orioles in the Jeremy Guthrie deal.
The Denver Post has obtained Belisle’s contract, which is similar to the extension given Rafael Betancourt. Belisle will make $4.1 million...
The time is now for the man who mocks the clock. Rafael Betancourt will open spring training this month as the Rockies' closer.
In what many are calling a puzzling trade, the Baltimore Orioles have agreed to send starting pitcher Jeremy Guthrie to the Rockies for starter Jason Hammel and reliever Matt Lindstrom. I’ll leave it to the experts at Fangraphs and ESPN to debate the why. What I care about is the how — how this trade affects the fantasy values of those directly involved (Guthrie, Hammel and Lindstrom...
The Rockies prospect countdown continues. Here's prospects 15-11 on the list with additional write ups by me that you won't find in the Fox MLB Fantasy magazine.
Rockies general manager Dan O’Dowd talked with The Denver Post’s Troy Renck about the team’s pitching staff for 2012, including new signing Jeremy Guthrie.
Pitcher admits he's a lousy hitter, while former skipper wishes him wellIt’s not every day when the team you cover trades its No. 1 starter, so it was a pretty busy day here on the Insider. But since the water cooler talk about the Orioles dealing Jeremy Guthrie might carry over for 24 hours, we wanted to throw a couple more Guthrie-related tidbits to digest with your morning...
