Carlos Gonzalez: Five Best Trade Fits

Carlos Gonzalez is a very good player – when healthy, of course. This is evidenced by his 2015 slash line of .271/.325/.540, along with his 40 home runs and 114 wRC+. Or the .958 OPS (144 OPS+) he posted in 2013. The Colorado Rockies are not a very good team. This is evidenced by their […]

Report: Nats interested in Carlos Gonzalez, Charlie Blackmon

Outside of reigning NL MVP/galaxy destroyer Bryce Harper, the lineup of the Washington Nationals skews incredibly right-handed hitter-heavy. This was an imbalance the team attempted to address with their pursuit of Jason Heyward, and even if they lost out on Heyward to the Chicago Cubs, the objective still remains. According to a report on Saturday by Pete Kerzel of

Colorado Rockies rumors: Rebuild or contend?

When looking at the past four years the Colorado Rockies have racked up 90 losses in each of those seasons, one may say that it’s time to cut your losses, deal out your stars and start looking to the top farm systems. While another may say that there’s plenty of talent on the team right now and all that’s needed are a few big name puzzle pieces and then viola! 90+ wins and...

Colorado Rockies Need to Finish the Job and Trade Carlos Gonzalez

The Troy Tulowitzki trade changed everything. Before the night of July 27th, the Rockies were a team that was counting on some sustained luck and good timing combined with a fairly talented lineup to make the playoffs. They were in a variation of a win-now mode. After that night, that was no longer the case. At that time, Jeff Bridich might as well have officially announced that...

Colorado Rockies need to hold on to Carlos Gonzalez

  When the Colorado Rockies traded Troy Tulowitzki to the Toronto Blue Jays, many thought another move would be quick to follow. Outfielder Carlos Gonzalez seemed to be the next one shipped out of town for pitching prospects. Gonzalez has a big contract, wants to win and the Rockies are in big need of some pitching. It all made sense. But Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich did...

Carlos Gonzalez hits 40th home run as Colorado Rockies lose in extra innings

  The Colorado Rockies like to torture their fans. If it isn’t with a false hope that accompanies every April, it is forcing fans to stay up late to watch an 11-inning meaningless game in late September only to see them lose in predictable fashion. When Brooks Brown started the bottom of the 11th with 11 straight pitches out of the strike zone, any chance of the Rockies winning...

Carlos Gonzalez crushes walk-off home run as Colorado Rockies win again

As Carlos Gonzalez circled the bases, perhaps for his last time in Colorado Rockies purple and black, it was hard not to ponder just how much fun it could be if the Rockies win on Saturday night had any weight behind it in the standings.
