Few compliments can be held in greater esteem for a third baseman than those coming from 16-time Gold Glover Brooks Robinson. Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado just got one of those. Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post quotes Robinson:"I pick up the paper every morning, and there are three guys I follow," the 78-year-old Robinson, a Hall of Fame third baseman, said by phone.

Homestand will determine the course of the Colorado Rockies season

  The Colorado Rockies got crushed on Monday night 11-4. It shouldn’t have been a huge surprise to anyone. Kyle Kendrick was due for a clunker and it may as well come when he was facing Clayton Kershaw. No lose should be easy to take, but the odds were stacked against the Rockies on Monday night, and considering their recent success, losing Monday wasn’t the end of the world...

Colorado Rockies continue winning ways on the road

  The Colorado Rockies put up football scores at Coors Field and forget to show up on the road. That’s what tradition has bestowed upon the Rockies. Their fans have almost accepted that if the team is going to make a run at the playoffs, that they simply have to cross their fingers and hope for a few wins away from Coors Field. Even in the good years, like 2009, the Rockies were...

Eddie Butler continues run of strong starts for Colorado Rockies

  Baseball is a funny game. Two weeks ago, all Colorado Rockies fans could talk about was how badly the bullpen was being overworked because of the Rockies starting pitchers inability to get deep into the game. The starters were nibbling at the strike zone, walking way too many opposing batters, then being forced to throw pitches down the heart of the plate that ended up causing...

JABO: Troy Tulowitzki is More Aggressive, Less Productive

Troy Tulowitzki has been in the news lately because of his desire to be traded away from Colorado (and then his desire not to be), but less publicized is the fact that he’s also in the midst of one of the least productive offensive stretches of his career.

Will The Real Carlos Gonzalez Please Stand Up

The Colorado Rockies are struggling as is their 5-tool right-fielder Carlos Gonzalez. Cargo is barely batting over the “Mendoza Line” after 40 games into the 2015 season as fans and poolies alike search for answers. When healthy, Gonzalez is an integral part of the Rockies offensive cog and one of the premier talents in the game. The 29-year old Gonzalez has experienced a litany...

Colorado Rockies: Will Tulo Stay?

Troy Tulowitzki The Colorado Rockies stand at the bottom of the NL West with no answer to their many struggles.

Carlos Gonzalez: From potential MVP to potential albatross

The Rockies had a chance to trade Carlos Gonzalez before season started. In fact they’ve had many chances over the last couple of years. Or at the very least they could have tried. They haven’t finished above .500 since 2010 (83-79) so it’s not like they kept him because they were in the midst of a playoff push. Now it looks like CarGo isn’t going anywhere but down. If...
