Rockies bust out big bats, win 17-7

In the fifth inning, before an energetic crowd of almost 47,000, Rockies’ outfielder Carlos Gonzalez hit a moonshot that may have just now landed somewhere beyond the right field fence of Coors Field. The three-run blast was the second of the night for Gonzalez, who also contributed six RBIs in a 17-7 shellacking of the Cincinnati Reds. The Rockies scored 10 runs in the third inning...

A healthy Carlos Gonzalez makes the Colorado Rockies a far better team

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...

Heartbreak doesn’t hurt like it should for Colorado Rockies fans

  It just doesn’t hurt like it used to. The Colorado Rockies climbed all the way back from a 8-4 deficit, tying the game on Carlos Gonzalez’s three-run blast in the bottom of the 8th inning. It was the second time in the game that the Rockies had erased a four-run deficit. It would have made sense that when John Axford promptly gave up two runs in the 9th inning to seal that...

Colorado Rockies trade rumors: Carlos Gonzalez edition

At the beginning of the season, ESPN’s Jim Bowden mentioned that if the Colorado Rockies were out of contention by the trade deadline, outfielder Carlos Gonzalez will be the trade target to watch.

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...
