Rockies win in first game of the post-Tulo era

Daniel Descalso did his best to show Rockies manager Walt Weiss that he can fill Troy Tulowitzki’s departed cleats, at least somewhat, in Tuesday’s win against the Chicago Cubs, the club’s first game since August 2006 without Troy Tulowitzki on payroll. Descalso was 1-3 with a double, a walk and an RBI and made a leaping grab with two on and two out to rob a hit from Monday’s...

Jorge wins the battle of the roses, Colorado Rockies hang on for win

  Jorge De La Rosa did what he has done 1,000 times. He struck out a bunch of Diamondbacks. In fact, while recording his 1,000th career strikeout, De La Rosa pitched the Colorado Rockies out of their losing streak and gave them some momentum. The Rockies bullpen predictably had fans biting their nails late in the game, but ultimately the early lead that the Rockies built off of...

Descalso lifts Rockies to 5-4 win over Padres in 9th

DENVER (AP) No way Corey Dickerson was sitting out another game, even if his left heel irritated him. Nolan Arenado felt the same way about his sore left wrist. Both may be banged up, but this eased any pain - a come-from-behind win to end a five-game slide. Pinch-hitter Daniel Descalso delivered an RBI single in the ninth inning after Dickerson tied the game in the eighth with...

Pete Kozma Might Be the Super-Sub the St. Louis Cardinals Need

Pete Kozma‘s name doesn’t come up a whole lot in St. Louis these days. Once the starting shortstop for the St. Louis Cardinals, Kozma finds himself fighting for a roster spot for the second spring in a row. The odds may be in his favor this time. Kozma is a player who seems to have everything figured out on defense. Unfortunately, it is not always enough to overcome his shortcomings...

Colorado Rockies Add To Roster Depth

The Colorado Rockies augmented their roster depth yesterday by agreeing to some minor league deals with a couple of veterans, and acquiring a couple young arms through a trade with the Atlanta Braves.

This offseason has been a historic one.

Four ex-Cardinals find it pays to have worn the Birds on the Bat

ST. LOUIS -- It sure pays to play for the Cardinals. You get the big home crowds, your travel is reasonable without any coast-to-coast trips and those annual playoff-share checks make a nice bonus at the end of the year. And then, when it's time to become an ex-Cardinal, you reap more dividends just for being part of such a winning club. At least that's how it's worked out for four...

Descalso gets two-year, $3.6M deal with Rockies

DENVER -- The first big league signing of Jeff Bridich's tenure as general manager of the Colorado Rockies was far more sensible than splashy. The Rockies needed a versatile infielder, and so they added Daniel Descalso with a $3.6 million, two-year contract Tuesday. It appears to be a sound investment for a team that's trying to rebound from a 96-loss season, especially after Colorado...

As the deadline to tender contracts to players not under guaranteed deals passed, the St. Louis Cardinals parted with utility infielder Daniel Descalso.

With the losses of Daniel Descalso and Mark Ellis, the club has made a couple of moves to try to address this issue.In his post, Neal assumed, and probably rightfully so, that Pete Kozma would win a spot on...
