Where do the Colorado Rockies go from here?

Another year, another losing season. The Colorado Rockies are again putting the final touches on a disastrous season. Colorado is going to end up with a top-5 and general manager Jeff Bridich has some major questions to address in the offseason. Are the Rockies going to trade Carlos Gonzalez? Will the choose to re-sign manager Walt Weiss? How are they going to upgrade their rotation...

Carlos Gonzalez hits 40th home run as Colorado Rockies lose in extra innings

  The Colorado Rockies like to torture their fans. If it isn’t with a false hope that accompanies every April, it is forcing fans to stay up late to watch an 11-inning meaningless game in late September only to see them lose in predictable fashion. When Brooks Brown started the bottom of the 11th with 11 straight pitches out of the strike zone, any chance of the Rockies winning...

Two Colorado Rockies stars, Arenado and Gonzalez, just did something that hasn’t been done since 2006

The Colorado Rockies have been awful this year. They’re on their way to another fifth place finish in the NL West and no one has paid much attention to the team in months. That doesn’t mean Carlos Gonzalez and Nolan Arenado aren’t still special players. Get a load of this. Carlos Gonzlez and Nolan Arenado are 1st pair of teammates with 40 HR in a season since Jermaine Dye...

Carlos Gonzalez crushes walk-off home run as Colorado Rockies win again

  What might have been? Or maybe the question should be, what could be? As Carlos Gonzalez circled the bases, perhaps for his last time in Colorado Rockies purple and black, it was hard not to ponder just how much fun it could be if the Rockies win on Saturday night had any weight behind it in the standings. Imagine, as CarGo’s blast landed among the trees in centerfield, if that...

Carlos Gonzalez Has Reminded Us Of His Special Talent

A 32-home run season is a solid achievement, one accomplished last year by only 10 players. That's why what Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez has accomplished the past few months is so amazing. He was a rather highly touted prospect and put together four solid seasons with Colorado, but injuries have marred his career and limited his potential, to a degree. Lately, however...

Trading Carlos Gonzalez would be a mistake for the Colorado Rockies

  Sometimes the best trades a team can make are the ones that never get made. That might be the case for general manager Jeff Bridich and the Colorado Rockies when it comes to superstar Carlos Gonzalez. When Troy Tulowitzki was dealt near the trade deadline at the end of July, nearly everyone within the baseball world speculated that CarGo would be the next man on his way out the...

The Winding Road to a Normal Carlos Gonzalez Season

For those casual baseball fans who might have found residence under a slab of basalt for the past two months, let’s get you up to speed: Carlos Gonzalez has been locked-in recently. Post All-Star break (that date chosen for simple convenience), CarGo is fourth in baseball in wRC+, tied for first in homers, and first in ISO. So, on Monday night, we shouldn’t have been too surprised...

Used CarGo for sale – could Carlos Gonzalez get dealt this week?

Back in mid-May I wrote about the prospect of trading Carlos Gonzalez. The point of that article was to suggest that the Colorado Rockies had missed out on their chance to trade the one-time MVP caliber outfielder. As we are now just one week away from the trade deadline CarGo’s name is popping up in rumors again. However I’m not sure enough has happened to change my mind about...

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...
