DraftKings – Matzek’al Mystery Tour

At the end of the year, you can look at season long stats and try to build a DK lineup and I can pretty much promise you, disappointment will follow. You see, season is all but done, bro and bro-ettes. That means guys get tired. The studs of May, June and July give way to the youthful, the fresh guys of the DL and the DFAs who get invigorated by their new teams. De Aza, I'm looking...

Tyler Matzek starting to make good

What do we make of the Rockies rookie left-hander Tyler Matzek at this point in the season? His surface statistics – a 2-9 record and a 5.38 earned run average in 77 innings so far this season – don’t scream rising star. But for the Rockies, who’ve had very little to look forward to as their season trickles towards an inevitable last-place finish, Matzek remains the most...

A Diamond in the Rough

If someone told me that a pitcher who had struggled in the Rockies minor league system would be able to make quality starts in the majors and fit in the starting rotation for the Rockies in the near future, I would have questioned that statement. But that is exactly what is happening in Colorado with former 1st round pick Tyler Matzek. Before he made his major league debut he struggled...

Tyler Matzek was phenomenal in his Major League debut.It's been a long, windy road for Tyler Matzek.The former No.1 draft pick of the Colorado Rockies way back in 2009 was once thought to be the savior of the franchise. He was going to be the first ace that the Rockies developed. It was a shock that Matzek dropped all the way to 11th overall. He threw in the mid-to-upper 90's in...

The time draws near for big decisions from the Colorado Rockies

It may be time for the Rockies to give Tyler Matzek his shot.I make a habit to not glean too much from the standings until Memorial Day.For all intents and purposes, it really isn't worth the time. It might be fun to watch how a certain team is doing, but to make arguments for or against a team's postseason hopes is semantics in April and May. The reality is, every year there are...
