Rockies break five-game losing streak, hang on to edge Dodgers' rally

There's a pecking order to the home run bat-flip and rooster walk. In Washington last week, budding Rockies slugger Corey Dickerson said he wasn't ready to stride out of the batter's box with a mean lean. Second-year Dodgers bomber Yasiel Puig, on the other hand, is king of the jerk-and-chuck, yanking home runs and tossing bats aside like so many soda drink straws. El...

Rockies 8, Dodgers 7: The Most Fun Loss Of The Year

Dan Haren wasn’t great today, but then I’m not sure if we should really be surprised or all that disappointed about this. We’ve been talking about his home run problems for weeks now, and he was asked to pitch in Coors Field, of all places. So that he allowed two homers, one to Drew Stubbs and another to Corey Dickerson, and a triple to Charlie Culberson that went to the...

A trade straight out of leftfield

Early last week, Mile High Sports president James Merilatt laid out a detailed and somewhat revolutionary plan for the Colorado Rockies moving forward. While I’m not sure exactly how they’d pull off moving spring training to Denver (MLB would put the brakes on that idea), the Rockies players could and should put in a lot of offseason conditioning work at high altitude, for all...

Brewers routed by Rockies in 'bad game' at home

MILWAUKEE -- With the way the Milwaukee Brewers have been a playing, a well-played loss Sunday in their final game of a 20-day stretch without an off day wouldn't have stuck with Ron Roenicke very long. What will stick with the skipper is the way the Brewers let the Colorado Rockies put the game away. After Milwaukee's offense cut a five-run deficit to 5-2, two errors on...

Brewers' season sweep foiled by Rockies

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Colorado scored three runs in a wild fifth-inning sequence featuring two Milwaukee errors, and the Rockies avoided a season sweep to the Brewers with a 10-4 win Sunday. Wilin Rosario took advantage of the gaffes with runners on first and second. His shot to third was booted by normally sure-handed third baseman Aramis Ramirez. One run had already scored when the...

The Rockies Need to Trade Hitting for Pitching

#451018564 / It’s not a secret that the Rockies’ pitching is awful. They are last in the league in team ERA at 4.89. They also have the second most blown saves this year in the majors, and they are last in the national league in opponents’ batting average at .271. Obviously they need pitching that can anchor their rotation and bullpen. There are several ways...

WATCH: Rockies OF faceplants rounding third, costs team run

When things don’t go the Colorado Rockies way, they really don’t go their way. Just one day after the Rockies allowed three runs to score on a wild pitch, they were once again the victims of a cringe-worthy baseball play. Down two runs in the bottom of the ninth inning against the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday, Corey Dickerson tattooed a ball off the right-field wall. Dickerson...

Brewers continue to rule on the road

The kings of the road continue to roll. Riding some early offense, a solid performance from their bullpen and another miraculous gift from the baseball gods — this time in the form of a ninth-inning Corey Dickerson pratfall — the Milwaukee Brewers closed out a tremendous road trip with a wild 6-5 victory over the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field on Sunday afternoon. It was just...

Time for fans to accept that it is going to be a long summer for the Colorado Rockies

Corey Dickerson has been a bright spot in 2014.Good news, Colorado Rockies fans, spring training is only 235 days away!That statement is sarcastic and condescending, but this is the time of year when the unrealistic Rockies fans come out. It is the time when fans point to the fact that the Rockies, despite their struggles, are still just a few games back of that final wild card position...

Corey Dickerson Hits Triple, Falls Running Home Afterward

Your browser does not support iframes. Corey Dickerson hit a triple during the 9th inning of Sunday’s Brewers vs. Rockies game. Once Carlos Gomez’ throw to third got past Aramis Ramirez, Dickerson went to round third and go home, and he probably would’ve been safe had he not hilariously tripped. Ryan Braun was proud watching this […] The post Corey Dickerson Hits Triple...

Brewers finish 'weird' road swing through Colorado with narrow win

In a series filled with strange plays and miscues, it was fitting another blunder by the Colorado Rockies helped the Milwaukee Brewers hold on for a 6-5 victory Sunday to complete their first sweep at Coors Field since 2004. Leading off the top of the ninth inning, Rockies left fielder Corey Dickerson just missed a home run off Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez. The ball hit so...

Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw throws his first no-hitter

On the scoreboard in right field, it was 10:08 p.m. in the City of the Angels. And a crowd of 46,069 had just sat in to see the best pitcher in baseball throw the first no-hitter of his career. Clayton Kershaw, who reminds us of Sandy Koufax with every flash of greatness, did it with a flurry. He struck out the final batter, Corey Dickerson. He struck out 15, setting a career high...

Rockies get agressive in the face of adversity

Baseball fans will forgive quite a lot of losing. We need look no further than the packed party deck at Coors Field to figure that out. What fans can’t forgive, however, is lack of passion.

Braves and Rockies demonstrate just how silly baseball justice can be

Is there such a thing as an accident in MLB anymore? If a hitter’s bat happens to strike a catcher on the backswing, is it now automatically assumed that it was done intentionally? Does the incident call for swift retaliation by the hitter getting plunked by a pitch immediately thereafter? I get baseball’s method of meting out justice. Throwing at batters has always been a part...
