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.

Wins and losses aside, Colorado has some amazing athletes

For fans, players and coaches, it tends to feel like there’s nothing more important than wins and losses, that there is NOTHING worse than a playoff collapse, a blown save or a losing season. Well, it’s a novel concept, but the truth is that there are some things that are bigger than sports, and last Saturday night proved that. Last weekend at the Colorado Convention Center...

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

  What might have been? Or maybe the question should be, what could be? 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. Imagine, as CarGo’s blast landed among the trees in centerfield, if that...
