ADAM OTTAVINO RUMORS

Same old story as Colorado Rockies bullpen blows it again; time for Walt Weiss to put his foot down

Walt Weiss needs to put his foot down.At some point, the question has to be asked, why do the Colorado Rockies insist on employing a strategy that has been nothing short of a failure?That was the case again on Tuesday night, as Rockies rookie Tyler Matzek had a very good outing.

GUEST POST: Colorado Rockies blow great start by De La Rosa, fans should continue to support the players

De La Rosa was great, but the pen and the offense wasn't.BY: CAMERON PARSONSThe Colorado Rockies started the second half of the season on the wrong foot.

Colorado Rockies theory bites them again in loss to Padres

Adam Ottavino may have hit his wall on Sunday.If it's been said once, it's been said 1000 times. The Colorado Rockies pitching theory simply doesn't work.It might work in one particular game.
