Importance of pitching on display as Colorado Rockies nearly shutout

  Going into Saturday night, the Colorado Rockies knew that they were going to have to get a great start from Chris Rusin to have a chance. That didn’t happen, as Rusin got beat up in the 3rd inning, giving up four runs. At that point, with Johnny Cueto on the mound for the Reds, the game was essentially over. In the end, the Rockies dropped the game 5-2 after a 9th inning rally...

DraftKings: Only Fools Rusin

At least, that's what wise men say. Thankfully for both you and I, I'm not one of those...wait, I mean...dammit, nevermind, you know what I mean. I think? Not good to start a recommendation blog off with trepidation but what can I say as I'm going for the unreliable narrator thing. I mean, it worked for Chuck Palahniuk and who doesn't love the anti-hero Tyler Durden? So while...

Terrible road trip ends with another loss for Colorado Rockies

  It’s official, the Colorado Rockies are back to what they are used to on the road; losing. On Tuesday in Houston, the Rockies got bad pitching, a four-inning, seven-run outing from Chris Rusin, and couldn’t complete a comeback when the bats went cold after a Carlos Gonzalez 5th inning home run.

Chris Rusin gives Colorado Rockies a great outing, but offense struggles

  Every season provides a new story. Every year unfolds in a new way. The 2015 season is no different. In a late announcement, the Colorado Rockies scratched Jorge De La Rosa from his scheduled start on Tuesday in Cincinnati. A cut that was on his throwing hand hasn’t healed and was causing enough discomfort to force the Rockies ace to miss his start. That meant that the Rockies...
