Rockies have figured out pitching and defense, and it has them in first place

Common wisdom holds that for the Colorado Rockies to excel while playing home games at mile-high Coors Field, they have to lead the Major Leagues in runs scored.

His numbers are Hall of Fame worthy, and...

Colorado Rockies “what if”: Todd Helton
