CarGo’s home run to end Rockies losing streak a thing a beauty

CarGo drops the baggage, drills game winner for Colorado Rockies

  Poetic justice. The Colorado Rockies were dancing with negative history, on the verge of losing their 12th straight game, down 4-2 in the top of the 9th inning with two outs and two on. It was only fitting that the player whose season has mirrored the team, a huge disappointment that has created doubt in even his greatest fans would step to the plate. Carlos Gonzalez, in vintage...

Carlos Gonzalez: From potential MVP to potential albatross

The Rockies had a chance to trade Carlos Gonzalez before season started. In fact they’ve had many chances over the last couple of years. Or at the very least they could have tried. They haven’t finished above .500 since 2010 (83-79) so it’s not like they kept him because they were in the midst of a playoff push. Now it looks like CarGo isn’t going anywhere but down. If...

Did the Rockies Miss Their Window to Trade Carlos Gonzalez?

Carlos Gonzalez is slumping. That isn’t news to you, unless you don’t really pay that much attention to the Colorado Rockies. Even then, it still might not be news to you. Gonzalez, who from 2010-2013 hit 108 homers (tied for 18th-best in the game), and posted a .245 ISO (ninth-best) and 103.4 Off (13th-best), is […]

Rockies' Gonzalez struggling at the plate, but still loves to hit

Carlos Gonzalez has been struggling lately, but he’s not mad at his bats for it. He still wraps the handles of his bats with tape “meticulously, even lovingly,” according to Rockies beat writer Thomas Harding. CarGo expressed just how much he loves to hit:"This is my favorite thing to do," Gonzalez said. "If you're 0-for-2, 0-for-4, 0-for-15, when you get a hit, it feels really...

Rockies doing well despite lack of production from Carlos Gonzalez

Gonzalez might be the most fearsome slugger in a loaded Rockies lineup, yet he’s hardly been contributing to start this season. He’s hitting .167 through 66 at-bats with only two home runs and six RBIs. CarGo seems content though to answer questions about his play on the field rather than his health following a couple of injury-plagued seasons. According to the Denver Post, he...
