Same old story as Colorado Rockies bullpen blows it again; time for Walt Weiss to put his foot down

Walt Weiss needs to put his foot down.At some point, the question has to be asked, why do the Colorado Rockies insist on employing a strategy that has been nothing short of a failure?That was the case again on Tuesday night, as Rockies rookie Tyler Matzek had a very good outing. Through 6-2/3 innings of one-run baseball, Matzek was showing that he was taking another step in his maturation...

GUEST POST: Colorado Rockies blow great start by De La Rosa, fans should continue to support the players

De La Rosa was great, but the pen and the offense wasn't.BY: CAMERON PARSONSThe Colorado Rockies started the second half of the season on the wrong foot. With plenty of opportunities missed, a good start from Jorge De La Rosa was wasted and the Rockies fell 4-2 to the Pirates.Coming out of the first half of the season, De La Rosa had proven his ace status amongst the Rockies...

De La Rosa does it again as Colorado Rockies only win with him on the mound

Can De La Rosa pitch everyday for the Rockies?The Colorado Rockies like to use unconventional wisdom in their front office.Maybe they can go back to the baseball thoughts of the early 1900's when a team had one starting pitcher and he pitched complete games every day, sometimes twice if there was a double header. Why would the Rockies employ this age-old practice? Because they...

Rockies put too much burden on their bullpen

It may count the same in the win/loss column, but a loss that comes on the heels of a blown lead just feels worse, in that gut-punch, disheartening way. Case in point: Wednesday night. In the latest installment of what’s become an unfortunate season trend, the bullpen combination of Rex Brothers, Adam Ottavino, and Nick Massett yielded five runs in relief as the St. Louis Cardinals...

Rock Bottom? Colorado Rockies lose another gut wrencher, exposing huge issues

Rockies fans want the old Rex Brothers back.Forget it, pack it in, the Colorado Rockies are done.Too harsh? Prove me wrong. I'd love to see someone give a solid reason as to why this Rockies team has a fighting chance to crawl back into the race. Sure, they are just two games under .500 after the latest disaster, but the reality is, that record doesn't speak to the true issues...

Painful moves the Rockies must make

To get something of value, you usually have to give something up. It may not be a hard-and-fast rule in the age of moving undesirables and salary dumps in professional sports, but generally speaking, it’s a principle assumed by a front office when anticipating trades. Last week, I penned a column imploring the Colorado Rockies to be more proactive when it comes to addressing team...

Rockies 6, Dodgers 1: Just Forget Any Of That Happened

There’s three especially major parts to any baseball game. (And lesser parts like umpire, weather, manager, etc.) How’d that work out for the Dodgers against the Rockies today? Pitching — Hyun-jin Ryu, well… at least he didn’t walk anyone? But he did give up nine hits and six runs, including Josh Rutledge‘s crushing three-run homer in the sixth inning that ended his day...
