CHARLIE BLACKMON RUMORS

Rockies Dangling Charlie Blackmon, Why Mets Should Check In

It’s that time of year.  As January rolls towards it’s conclusion and the spring training itch becomes an irritant, I rifle through baseball stats and begin my research for the fantasy baseball draft.  That process always unearths some surprises. I play in a 15 team keepers league. Overall production, not positional balance has always been the philosophy that guides my draft...

Sources: Rockies dangling All-Star OF Blackmon in trade talks

The Colorado Rockies surrendered the most runs in Major League Baseball last year and began the offseason in a familiar position -- needing to upgrade their pitching staff. But more than three months after their final game of 2014, the Rockies have yet to sign any free-agent pitcher to a major-league contract. The hitter-friendly environment at Coors Field is the same hindrance...

Player Profile #137: Charlie Blackmon | OF | COL

Skill is, of course, really important, but time and time again we’ve witnessed players with less skill, outperform more gifted players for no other reason than the context in which they are playing. It’s not necessarily luck that I’m referring to, but rather an acceptance that a sizable portion of a player’s fantasy goodness depends on their opportunity. Perhaps above all...

Time to make a deal for Charlie Blackmon

Baseball has always been a numbers game. There have always been an astounding amount of statistics associated with the sport of baseball, a reality that has done nothing but grow since the introduction of sabermetrics to the sport. However, it should be a far simpler numbers game that eventually catches up with Colorado Rockies outfielder and 2014 All-Star outfielder Charlie Blackmon...

Mile “highs” from the Rockies’ 2014 season…yes, there were some

For the Colorado Rockies, the 2014 season was the same sad song as their past few years. Injured superstars get paid big bucks but can’t deliver a full season, an aged veteran turns out the best performance amidst a roster of young and upcoming talent, and pitching that lacked any real reliability. Yeah, I guess you could say that the Colorado Rockies could be described with all...

Colorado Rockies owner Dick Monfort at it again

In Denver, there are fewer people more infamous than Dick Monfort. Widely criticized for the way he and his brother Charlie run the Colorado Rockies; it is safe to say Monfort’s not the most popular cat in Colorado. As hard as it is to believe, Dick Monfort just got a little less popular. Responding to a fan who criticized Monfort for hiring “good old boys” and ruining professional...

From Chicago to Colorado: a case for Jeff Samardzija

It is no secret that the Chicago Cubs are shopping around Jeff Samardzija. Again he has rejected an extension offer from the Cubs, which means he’s the hottest item on the trade market. The seven year veteran’s time with the Cubbies seems to be drawing to a close, and there’s a perfect fit for him out west. And the Colorado Rockies should heed Horace Greeley’s timeless advice...
