Arenado and CarGo propel Colorado Rockies offense as bullpen holds on

  Tommy Kahnle let out a deep breath. The reliever put a scare into the fanbase of the Colorado Rockies, but ultimately, he struck out Buster Posey with the tying run on base to end the game. The Rockies hung on to steal a victory at AT&T Park in San Francisco. The late scare could easily have overshadowed what the Rockies had accomplished early in the game. However, what both...

CarGo should blame CarGo

The Pot Calling the Kettle Black Most of all, Carlos Gonzalez should blame himself for the Rockies struggles By James Merilatt Someone can never go wrong criticizing the DMV; nobody has a soft spot in their hearts for the folks that make everyone wait in line for hours to get a driver license.

Featured Post: Potential Hitters For Mets To Target

In a previous article where I postulated that it was time for the Mets to trade quantity for quality, a common sentiment from readers was that we need to trade for hitting, not for pitching. I stayed away from discussing hitting targets as acquiring one would not only involve a speculated trade scenario, it would also involve speculation on how players will be shifted or moved internally...

Colorado Rockies should sell this trade season, but how much?

The Colorado Rockies are a prime market for teams to grab quality players every time the trade deadline rolls around. As a franchise with a relatively small budget, the Rockies can never seem to afford to keep their top players around for the long term. Thus, in the past they have seen the likes of Matt Holliday and others walk out the door for more money. This season is no different...

Colorado Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez is finally starting to hit for power again

After a somewhat lethargic performance throughout the first two months of the 2015 season, Colorado Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez is on a tear at the plate as of late. While CarGo ended May on a progressive note by picking up six base hits over the last four games of the month, his batting numbers through April and May were disappointing, to say the least. Heading into June...

Evaluating the Angels outfielder trade targets

Evaluating the Angels outfielder trade targets isn’t an easy task. The Angels have a poor farm system to trade from and some financial restrictions that limit what they can even offer. The bigger problem though is that there isn’t exactly a bevvy of highly attractive outfield bats to choose from. However, the Angels desperately need to trade for someone, anyone really. This...

Terrible road trip ends with another loss for Colorado Rockies

  It’s official, the Colorado Rockies are back to what they are used to on the road; losing.

Walt Weiss may not be the right man for the Colorado Rockies

  It was a highly criticized move when the Colorado Rockies reached into the high school ranks to make Walt Weiss their sixth manager in club history. The criticism wasn’t fair. It wasn’t like Weiss was a high school coach who had never been in a Major League clubhouse, or endured the grind of 162 games. Weiss played for more than a decade in the big leagues. He played under...

OPS Leagues: Tulonado Warning

Quick, who leads the Colorado Rockies in hits? How about batting average? And most importantly for this column, who leads the Rockies in OBP? If you said Troy Tulowitzki or Nolan Arenado, you’d be wrong. If you said Carlos Gonzalez, you’d be really wrong. The correct answer is D.J. LeMahieu. LeMahieu has been one of the Rockies best batters to start the season and, after a bit...
