Jorge De La Rosa’s early struggles are concerning

Jorge De La Rosa has been arguably the greatest pitcher in Colorado Rockies history.

Since his arrival to Colorado in 2008, De La Rosa has put up solid numbers years...

Remember when the Colorado Rockies were good a few weeks ago?

Listen to this week's episode of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast! Remember when the Colorado Rockies were over. 500 for two straight weeks of this baseball podcast? Hey, neither do we. The Rockies are coming off of a 1-5 homestand that saw bad starting pitching, bad relief pitching, bad umpiring, a pair of huge rallies that still ended in losses, and some gobsmacking frustration. So...

Trevor Story ties MLB rookie record for home runs in month

Rockies reignite fierce debate over whether a hot dog is a sandwich

Is a hot dog a sandwich? It's a divisive topic, and on Wednesday the Colorado Rockies sparked a spirited debate on Twitter with one very well crafted and troll-ish tweet. Things quickly got very heated in the Rockies' mentions.Evidence that a hot dog is a sandwich: It's "meat" corralled by bread.Evidence that a hot dog is not a sandwich: It's a hot dog.

They’ve Adjusted to Trevor Story

They say you can’t predict baseball, but that’s nonsense. You can’t predict all of baseball, but you can definitely predict some of baseball. One of those predictions that any one of us could’ve made: There was no way Trevor Story was going to keep that up. It was so obvious that even saying it would’ve been empty. Pointless. The prediction was essentially implied by the...

Nolan Arenado Looks Like He’s Up to Something

We’ve gotten to see many sides of Nolan Arenado over the past two years. The maker of ridiculous defensive plays. The hitter of a multitude of home runs. The effusive trotter of the base paths. With regard to his plate discipline, however, Arenado hasn’t changed much since he got to the majors. To call him a “free swinger” doesn’t really do him justice: between 2014 and...

Don’t test the arm of Gerardo Parra; Jay Bruce tested it and failed

A huge key to being a big league outfielder is having a strong arm. Colorado Rockies outfielder Gerardo Parra showed his off Monday night in Cincinnati, and the Reds’ Jay Bruce was his latest victim. Bruce sent a ball into the gap in left-center in the fifth inning, and at worst, Bruce had a stand-up double. But the ball got away, and Parra seemed to have misplayed the ball off...

Jake Arrieta’s dominance reaching more historic levels

The “friendly confines” of Wrigley Field have been just that for Jake Arrieta. Conversely, facing the Cubs ace at the old park on the north side of Chicago is quite the unpleasant experience. On Saturday, it was the Colorado Rockies who were rudely greeted by the wrath of the 2015 NL Cy Young Award winner. Arrieta went eight shutout innings in a 6-2 Cubs victory — making...
