Inconsistent De La Rosa appears, keeps D-backs from breakeven

PHOENIX -- Three De La Rosas took the mound at Chase Field on Sunday. Jorge started for the Rockies and then there was Good Rubby and Bad Rubby for the Diamondbacks. The right-hander has ebbed from tantalizingly dominant to frustratingly inconsistent both this season and throughout most of his young career. All of that was on display in Sunday's 6-4 loss to the Rockies that again...

Tulowitzki's homer leads Rockies to 6-4 win over D-backs

PHOENIX (AP) Troy Tulowitzki had a three-run homer to extend his hitting streak to 18 games, Jorge De La Rosa pitched six effective innings and the Colorado Rockies beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 6-4 on Sunday to avoid a four-game sweep. Tulowitzki homered in Colorado's four-run first inning against Rubby De La Rosa (6-4) and Carlos Gonzalez added a two-run homer off the right-hander...

Disgusting losses piling up for Colorado Rockies

  If watching Joey Chestnut polish off 69 hot dogs on the 4th of July didn’t make you want to throw up, the end of the Colorado Rockies game probably did the trick. Once again, in a close game going down to the wire, the Rockies turned a potential win into a blowout loss in the late innings. It was another disgusting performance, one in which the Rockies have started to become...

Colorado Rockies All-Star’s not participating in Home Run Derby

It’s Independence Day, July 4th, fireworks are lighting up the sky and so too are the Colorado Rockies bats. It sounds weird to say–the Rockies are lighting it up–but they are, not in the standings. In the standings they are dead last in their division and the third worst team in baseball. But despite the standings, the Rockies are sending their own version of fireworks into...

Colorado Rockies invent new ways to blow baseball games

  Want to know what happened in the Colorado Rockies game on Saturday night? Click on the archives section, head back to anytime in August of 2014, 2013 or 2012 and read. With the substitution of a few names, the story is the exact same. Different year, same story for the Rockies. In the early going of the Rockies 2015 season, things seemed different. Not different in a contention...

Rockies fall to D-Backs, Arenado struggles

Baseball has a way of evening things out in the end, as Nolan Arenado saw firsthand Thursday night. The two-time gold glove winner and reigning National League Player of the Week committed two costly errors and was 1-for-4, including a fly out to end the game, an 8-1 loss for the Rockies in Arizona. Colorado wasted a solid effort by Chris Rusin, who went six innings and allowed...

More of the same from the Colorado Rockies

  The sad thing about the 2015 season for the Colorado Rockies is that it is only the beginning of July. Had the Root Sports cameras panned over to the Rockies dugout at the end of the Diamondbacks 8-1 drubbing of the Rockies, there very well may have been a white flag being waved. It hasn’t just been that type of road trip for the Rockies, it has been that type of season–again...

Colorado Rockies: Pitching trouble continues on the road

It is no surprise that the Colorado Rockies continue to fall behind in the National League West division standings with the pitching performances they are putting on in their current 10-game road trip. Before taking a downhill fall they were on a two game winning streak against NL West foes, defeating the Arizona Diamondbacks at home and then the San Francisco Giants at their place...

Colorado Rockies trade rumors: Kyle Kendrick edition

From the start of the 2015 Major League season the Colorado Rockies sensed that Kyle Kendrick wouldn’t finish the year on their roster. Only signing him to a one year 5.5 million dollar contract in the winter, Kendrick is an attractive prospect to teams that are looking to clean up the back end of their rotations. Kendrick made a good impression for the Rockies not giving up an...

Jenny Cavnar takes the lead on Rockies radio

The Colorado Rockies have not had much to smile about for the past few seasons with losing streaks rolling on for days and even weeks during some really low points. However, one constant source of energy and enthusiasm has been Jenny Cavnar. Since 2012, Cavnar has been host of the Rockies Pregame and Toyota Postgame Show. Cavnar who was born and raised in Aurora, Colo. went to Smoky...

Read Between the Lines: Weiss and Tulowitzki

Troy Tulowitzki showed his stubborn side and it appears Walt Weiss might have a strained relationship with his All-Star shortstop after a pair of quotes came out on Wednesday indicating the shortstop isn’t necessarily willing to do whatever it takes to help the club win and his manager doesn’t know how to handle it. Nick Groke of the Denver Post was with the Rockies on Wednesday...

Rockies GM calls SS promotion a 'Story story, not a Tulo story'

The Rockies drafted Brendan Rodgers third overall this year. Rodgers is a shortstop whom many experts considered the best overall talent in this year’s MLB Draft. He’s been likened to current Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and seen as his heir apparent. However, he’s only 18, and the Rockies actually have another top shortstop prospect in their system who just got closer...

Rockies closer Axford takes family leave for second time this season

For the second time this season Rockies pitcher John Axford has been placed on the family medical emergency list. Earlier in the year, the reliever needed time away to care for his snake-bitten son, Jameson Axford. This time the reason isn’t regarding his son, according to Nick Groke of the Denver Post. Rockies manager Walt Weiss said:"He has some things to take care of at home...

What the Rockies Have In Nolan Arenado

It’s been a good stretch for Nolan Arenado. In the past seven games, he’s hit eight home runs. Going back seven games is an arbitrary endpoint, so, in the five games preceding, Arenado hit either a double or a triple. After a May 23 doubleheader, Arenado was batting .257; since then, he’s batted .333, and […]

Colorado Rockies need to stop denying Troy Tulowitzki trade rumors

The Colorado Rockies can deny all they want but once the trading deadline comes around, Troy Tulowitzki will be on the block. Tulowitzki can say that he would like to stay on the Rockies but that is not in the best interest for them. The team is not getting any better and Tulowitzki is their best trading piece. They can get the most in return for him. They tried their best to let...

The truth about Troy Tulowitzki

I get it.  Troy Tulowitzki is the heart and soul of the Colorado Rockies.  I’ve been to Coors Field, seen all the Tulo jerseys, heard the applause every time his name is mentioned.  He’s an icon for the club and trading him would be a very hard thing for the Rockies to do. Not only that.  He’s the best shortstop in baseball, right? Up until this season, I would have agreed...
