What Are The Chances Carlos Gonzalez Is A Cardinal By Opening Day?

Not good. But let’s go through this anyway. PROS: The last 2 seasons prior to 2014, Gonzalez was an All-Star and Gold Glove winner. He’s a corner outfielder. Under contract for 3 more years @ 53M total. Career .520 SLG. CONS:  He ended last season under the knife to repair a torn patella tendon. Compares his flashy play to Ricky Henderson. He’ll command a profusion of prospects...

The Rockies new GM delivers on first move

If you’re keeping score at home, go ahead and put Rockies new general manager Jeff Bridich down for a single. It was a slap single to right, maybe even an infield hit, but nonetheless, Bridich is safe at first. Sure, Bridich doesn’t really “hit” per se, but this was his first move, his first test, his first anything. And it was subtle. One might argue that Bridich really...

Report: Mets, Rockies have talked Tulowitzki trade

By now it’s well known that Troy Tulowitzki is not happy about the direction of the Colorado Rockies and is looking to move on from the only organization he has suited up for. Barring something drastic changing on that front, Tulo will likely be calling another city home next season. And fresh off signing Michael Cuddyer to a two-year contract, the New York Mets have reportedly...

Looking at potential Rockies-Indians trade fits

For a bad team, the Colorado Rockies have been in the news a lot of late. They made a change at the top with the retirement of former Cleveland Indians front office member Dan O’Dowd. In his fifteen years as general manager the Rockies made the playoffs only twice and spent the last four years under .500. Their minor league system has improved, but it has been a bad run for the...

Tulo trade talks return in Colorado

The Troy Tulowitzki trade talks have started early. Major-league sources announced Wednesday that the Colorado Rockies were willing to listen to offers for their all-star shortstop. There were also rumors that Carlos Gonzalez was also a name they were willing to listen to offers for. Apparently the Rockies are “keeping their eyes and ears open” for any potential deals that could...

Are the Rockies ready to rebuild?

The Colorado Rockies do weird things. Whether it’s reorganizing the front office in a way that puts the GM in charge of the farm system instead of the major league roster or having the new GM put an office in the clubhouse, they operate in a way that is unusual for an MLB franchise. Even […]

Storylines: Rockies willing to listen on Tulowitzki, Gonzalez

Top Stories For the past six to eight years, the two cornerstones of the Colorado Rockies have been Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez; however, they are now on the trade market entering the offseason. Ken Rosenthal believes that an actual trade happening during the free agency period is slight, but that the Rockies are open to trading one or both stars if the right deal comes...

With A Crowded Outfield, Does Colorado Move Carlos Gonzalez?

David Schoenfield of ESPN speculates that with Michael Cuddyer expected to accept his $15.3 million qualifying offer, the Colorado Rockies now find themselves with a glut in the outfield. So by giving Cuddyer that offer, the Rockies are betting on his return and given that Justin Morneau is still under contract, Cuddyer will play in right field the majority of the time. “The Rockies...

Let’s try to rationalize Michael Cuddyer’s qualifying offer

Monday evening was the deadline for teams to hand out qualifying offers to teams, and one offer really stood out from the bunch – the Rockies offering Michael Cuddyer. Cuddyer was the 2013 NL batting champion, but he played in just 49 games in 2014 thanks to three different DL stints because of three different injuries. So naturally, Colorado dishes out the qualifying offer, despite...

Hey Rockies, don’t rid of Rosario just yet

Pitching woes and the Colorado Rockies have become synonymous. It has undoubtedly been the biggest weak spot of the franchise since its berth two decades ago. And watching Madison Bumgarner single handedly win the World Series for the San Francisco Giants was evidence of how important pitching is to a team’s post season success. But recent talks in Denver have many demanding a...

What’s in Store for the Rockies this Offseason? Part I

The Rockies offseason began in relative upheaval when long-tenured GM Dan O’Dowd and Director of Major League Operations Bill Geivett resigned.  For a front office that had been notably resistant to change, it will be interesting to see what direction new GM Jeff Bridich takes the franchise. Bridich hopes to bring a breath of fresh air to a Rockies franchise looking to reach the...

Bridich takes baby step in right direction

Colorado Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich isn’t standing pat – and that’s perhaps the most promising thing about his brief tenure so far with the team. The decision to part ways with pitching coach Jim Wright and bullpen coach Bo McLaughlin isn’t exactly revolutionary - not after the Rockies finished with a MLB-worst 4.86 earned run average that wasn’t just a product...

Mile “highs” from the Rockies’ 2014 season…yes, there were some

For the Colorado Rockies, the 2014 season was the same sad song as their past few years. Injured superstars get paid big bucks but can’t deliver a full season, an aged veteran turns out the best performance amidst a roster of young and upcoming talent, and pitching that lacked any real reliability. Yeah, I guess you could say that the Colorado Rockies could be described with all...

The Rockies can’t even fire their GMs right

Yesterday, the Rockies finally moved on from their bizarre tandem GM arrangement that has led them to four straight years of 88 or more losses. This is a great sign of progress for a very backwards organization, right? NOPE. It turns out that clearing out Dan O’Dowd and Bill Geivett wasn’t there intention at all. In fact, they actually tried to give O’Dowd an extension....

Failure to make changes might hurt the Colorado Rockies more than they think

Dick Monfort simply doesn't get it.Dick Monfort is fiercely loyal. Nearly everyone agrees on that.That is what everyone says about the Colorado Rockies owner.
