Rockies' injury updates on Josh Rutledge, Jhoulys Chacin and Justin Morneau

Although the Colorado Rockies won just 74 games in 2013, it marked a 10-win improvement over 2012.  In order to continue the positive trend in 2014, the Rockies will need to stay relatively injury-free.  That hasn't quite worked out so far this Spring Training as second basemen Josh Rutledge, first baseman Justin Morneau and pitcher Jhoulys Chacin are all dealing with injury...

Who Is Josh Rutledge?

Earlier this week, the Rockies sent Josh Rutledge to Colorado Springs. To be certain, Rutledge was not playing well, and there is a decent chance that Rutledge really isn’t that good in general.

Josh Rutledge, 2013 Fantasy Sleeper

For whatever reason the Rockies never gave Eric Young Jr. a fair shot at an everyday playing job. I'm pouring out some of my forty-oh for EY. Okay, enough of that sob story. What is this a Lifetime movie? Sheesh! BTW, if I ever had a son, I'd name him Sheesh. Talk about the annoying looks he would get. "Sheesh, where are you?" "I'm on my way other...

Seven things the Rockies have discovered this season

Denver, CO. 47-73, and last place in the National League West. For anyone who has paid attention to the happenings down at Coors Field this year, the Colorado Rockies have not been good.
