The preseason has a month left here in Denver. The Colorado Rockies have four more weeks to play games that, to quote John Lynch, “Don’t count (for them, anyway), but do matter...

Trading Carlos Gonzalez would be a mistake for the Colorado Rockies

  Sometimes the best trades a team can make are the ones that never get made. That might be the case for general manager Jeff Bridich and the Colorado Rockies when it comes to superstar Carlos Gonzalez.

WATCH: D-backs pitcher fails on quick pitch attempt

There’s a reason why pitchers don’t often try to sneak in a quick fastball to throw hitters off balance, and Diamondbacks pitcher Rubby De La Rosa showed us all why in Tuesday night’s game against the Rockies. De La Rosa was facing Ben Paulsen, and behind 1-0 in the count. He attempted to rectify that by throwing a quick pitch before Paulsen was ready. Home plate umpire...

Rockies' prized SS prospect Story a 'longshot' to be September call-up

It appears as though Colorado Rockies fans won't be getting a sneak peek at the player who could be their next franchise shortstop this year. Manager Walt Weiss told reporters Tuesday that it is unlikely that prized shortstop prospect Trevor Story will be amongst those the Rockies call up with expanded rosters in September. "I don't know if the door is completely shut on that one...

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon Makes Infielder Miss Easy Out With Awesome Slide

Charlie Blackmon is not a household name. The Colorado Rockies outfielder is not one of those guys that makes Sportscenter type plays on a nightly basis, but he certainly pulled one off against the Arizona Diamondbacks Monday night.

Colorado Rockies: Tulo trade “Prospects” have been lights out

  The Rockies dropped their second straight to the Pittsburgh Pirates, meanwhile down on the farm, newly acquired pitchers Jeff Hoffman and Jesus Tinoco have been dominating since the Tulowitzki trade.

The Rockies come to town

The drill for this series is much the same as the last: the Pirates are playing bad teams at a point in the season where wins are at a premium. There is no reason for the Pirates to not win two or three games against the Rockies at PNC Park this weekend, and if they’re lucky, doing that will make up some ground on the Cardinals for them. Francisco Liriano starts for the Bucs tonight...

Weighing Arenado’s chances at three in a row

The Colorado Rockies finally locked up win No. 50, the last MLB club to accomplish the feat in 2015, on the season on Tuesday night against the Atlanta Braves thanks in part to some nifty glove work by third baseman Nolan Arenado. The wins may have come few and far between for the Rockies this year, but great defensive play by Arenado is one thing the Rockies have been able to depend...

Jose Reyes hints he wants out of Colorado

    Jose Reyes has spent less than a month with the Colorado Rockies, and it sounds like he has already had enough. Over the weekend, Reyes expressed frustration over the fact that he is inching toward the end of his career and playing for a team that is nowhere close to being a contender. “You come from a ballclub that was competing for a spot in the playoffs,” the 32...
