Rockies Outfielder Dexter Fowler Looks Like An Astronaut In Compression Suit

Spring Training is underway! Rockies outfielder Dexter Fowler is taking extra precautions early on by wearing this astronaut-like suit. Just what is this thing? Is it totally necessary? Will it get him back in his 2010 form when led the majors in triples? Lets take a look. This thing is called the NormaTec MVP Recovery System. According to the website: The NormaTec MVP Recovery...

Rockies rumors: Colorado targeting capable starting pitcher

The Colorado Rockies would like to add one more capable starting pitcher before the start of the regular season, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.

What did surprise me was who their target should...

Colorado Rockies: 3 Up and 3 Down

What the Colorado Rockies did as a baseball club last year was unsightly.  At 64-98, they finished 30 games back of the Giants in the NL West.  Only the Houston Astros, who mostly resemble a AA team, kept them from baseball’s worst record. The Rockies’ pitching staff gave up a startling 890 runs on the season. No other NL team allowed more than 794. Colorado, playing 81 games...

Three D-backs bid for last spot in rotation

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. In a perfect world, the Diamondbacks would break camp with two left-handers in the starting rotation, the better to match up against the likes of division lefties Carlos Gonzalez, Adrian Gonzalez, Yonder Alonso and even switch-hitter Chase Headley, who hits better from that side.
