REX BROTHERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Rock Bottom? Colorado Rockies lose another gut wrencher, exposing huge issues

Rockies fans want the old Rex Brothers back.Forget it, pack it in, the Colorado Rockies are done.Too harsh? Prove me wrong. I'd love to see someone give a solid reason as to why this Rockies team has a fighting chance to crawl back into the race. Sure, they are just two games under .500 after the latest disaster, but the reality is, that record doesn't speak to the true issues...

Even with a loss to end the month, Colorado Rockies have been impressive

Rex Brothers' struggles continued on Wednesday.April was good to the Colorado Rockies.Despite the final pitch of the month being a Miguel Montero walk-off home run to send the Rockies home with a loss, the month overall was very good to the club. What looked like a sweep ended in disappointment. The Rockies blew a four-run lead and, for the fourth time in a row, missed a chance...

Wild Brothers helps Padres steal victory

The Padres invested a great deal in the future of their offense Monday afternoon. Yet even as their immediate needs continue to fall by the wayside – specifically with runners in scoring position – patience and aggressive paid dividends Monday night. Hours after inking Jedd Gyorko to a six-year, $35 million extension, three walks, a wild pitch and an error in the eighth inning...

Colorado Rockies miss on Opening Day closer

Latroy Hawkins has been an enigma throughout his 19 years in the major leagues. Reinventing himself multiple times has helped the 41-year-old stand the test of time. Hawkins enters his 20th season in the majors where he once again is penciled in to play an important bullpen role. Signed by the Colorado Rockies over the winter to a one-year, $2.5 million contract, he has since been...

Rockies’ Rex Brothers Balks Twice During One At-Bat, Michael Young Sees Five Strikes (Video)

The balk rule is one of baseball’s laws that’s rarely enforced and often misunderstood. Even some major league umpires have admitted to not fully understanding its vague language about “deceiving” the runner. On Tuesday night, Colorado Rockies pitcher Rex Brothers somehow managed to cross the umpires twice, not just in the same game, but while pitching to the same batter...

Reaching for relief: Colorado Rockies desperate for pitching

  Pitching wins championships. It’s really that simple. No one denies that you need an offense to put runs on the board. An offense can carry your team far. But when the summer sun fades, games in October come down to the arms you have throwing them. In Denver, there appears to be a lack of concern for a glaring pitching problem. A problem that left uncorrected, will eliminate...

Rafael Betancourt to DL, Rex Brothers is the Add

Colorado Rockies closer, Rafael Betancourt, has officially been placed on the DL. Rex Brothers will close in the interim. If you play in a legitimate roto league and have less than four closers, add him now. I added Brothers to all my rosters minutes after Betancourt first left a game injured 11 days ago. It was then reported that he would not require a trip to the DL. I held him...

Rex Brothers – Kantor’s Fantasy Corner

If you’ve been sleeping on the waiver wire, Colorado Rockies closer, Rafael Betancourt, left an extra innings game on Tuesday with an apparent groin issue. He will get an MRI with results that will determine if he can avoid a DL stint. Rex Brothers, although left handed, will get the saves in his absence. He has been unbelievable so far this season (hasn’t given up a run...

Good Month For Rex Brothers (Singular)

June has been a good one for Rex Brothers.I was hoping for a very different Rex Brothers. Sadly, the Colorado reliever is just one player. When the 2009 MLB Rule 4 draft buzz about Rex Brothers was occurring, my first thought was there were Rex Brothers like the Upton brothers but twins. One lefty and one righty, naturally, but otherwise identical. Ideally, one of them would...

Rockies' Brothers gains accuracy by dialing back velocity

After left-handed pitcher Rex Brothers stumbled badly for a second consecutive outing Tuesday, manager Jim Tracy said the 24-year-old reliever would be back on the mound soon "because we have to get him straightened out." Indeed, after the Rockies beat the Pirates 2-1 in the first game of a doubleheader, Brothers relieved in a low-stress situation in the second game,...
