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...

Same old story as Colorado Rockies bullpen blows it again; time for Walt Weiss to put his foot down

Through 6-2/3 innings of one-run baseball, Matzek was showing that he was taking another step in his maturation...

Rockies rotation is humming along nicely

Sunday against the Detroit Tigers, Jorge De La Rosa allowed four runs over six and two-thirds in what turned out to be a 4-0 Detroit win. Saturday, Tyler Matzek went just four innings and allowed eight earned runs to the Tigers in another loss. Those pitching lines, while far from inspiring, made two non-descript losses in August notable – not because the Rockies lost, but because...

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...

The ineptitude of the Colorado Rockies knows no limit. This team's struggles start at the top and leak all the way down to the very core of the management, players, pitchers...

Matzek wows the home crowd with a dominant debut, Rockies win 8-2

In a year where starting pitchers have been dropping like flies, the Rockies were desperate for someone to step up. Tyler Matzek answered that call, and in his big league debut he absolutely shackled the Atlanta Braves. Thanks to his seven plus innings of two run pitching, the Rockies cruised to an easy 8-2 victory. Tonight was a lone island of happiness amongst an ocean of misery...

Tyler Matzek shines in unforgettable Major League debut for Colorado Rockies

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&...

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...
