JOHN AXFORD RUMORS & GOSSIP

John Gets the Axford

After blowing his fifth save Thursday night, giving up three walks and two runs in the ninth, John Axford has now blown four save chances in his past five appearances. Colorado Rockies Manager Walt Weiss said Friday that John Axford would be removed from the closer role. But from the looks of the quote, it sounds like Axford could potentially gain the job back, especially if the...

Axford, Rockies literally walk off in loss to Cardinals

As a guy who allowed just one earned run from April 8 until June 17, these past six weeks must have been agony for John Axford. The closer who was virtually unhittable in his first 20 games, compiling a .047 ERA and .162 batting average against to go along with one win and 12 saves, can’t seem to buy an out these days. Heck, he’s having a hard time even getting strikes at this...

Watch this warp-speed tour through Wrigley Field catacombs with John Axford

Players consistently rate the Wrigley Field's facilities for visiting teams the worst in Major League Baseball. It's cramped, outdated and lacks the equipment common in most modern clubhouses. "It's jammed," former Mets and current Blue Jays catcher Josh Thole said of the clubhouse. "Put 20 reporters in there, and it gets even more jammed. There's no place to hide out. It's significantly...

As I have said week after week, the Colorado Rockies are one of these teams.

Detroit Tigers’ trade targets: John Axford

It isn’t necessary for the Detroit Tigers to fill its hole in the rotation with a front-line starter. The team just needs someone who can come in, eat innings and give the club a chance to win the game. While the rotation can be fixed with a No. 4 starter, the bullpen needs something more. The back-end of the bullpen is in dire need of an upgrade. After Joakim Soria, there’s...

Axford struggles as Colorado Rockies lose late to Diamondbacks

  Anyone who watches baseball could have seen it coming. John Axford has been nearly perfect for the Colorado Rockies in 2015. It has been a season in which he has re-established himself as one of baseball’s elite closers. However, even the best closers are bound to blow a few games each season. It is simply the nature of baseball. Mariano Rivera did it, Trevor Hoffman did it...
