Jordan Lyles plagued by 6th inning, Colorado Rockies offense flat again

  These are the games that good teams win. They are also the games that bad teams lose. The Colorado Rockies are the latter, and therefore they lost this time. The final score was 4-3. Jordan Lyles was very good again on Monday, but he spoiled a really good outing with something that has become a trend for him. He struggled in the 6th inning. Through five innings, Lyles had given...

Stat Sunday: The Angels’ Offense Is So Bad…

There are seemingly infinite ways to sum up how much the Angels’ offense has struggled in the season’s first six weeks. You could point out that their .643 OPS is the worst in the American League by more than 30 points, and that they have 153 fewer total bases than the Royals. Or you could dwell on how, until Saturday, they hadn’t scored more than five runs in a game in the...

Weiss, Lyles, Morneau recovering after a rough day

The Colorado Rockies lost more than just another contest on their 11-game losing streak on Wednesday to the Los Angeles Angels. Manager Walt Weiss, starting pitcher Jordan Lyles, and first baseman Justin Morneau’s services were all taken away from the Rockies throughout the day in Anaheim. Luckily, none of them are expected to miss extended, if any, time. Weiss underwent an emergency...

Colorado Rockies losing streak hits 11, Angels walk-off with win

  Walt Weiss isn’t the only one sick to his stomach. Colorado Rockies fans are feeling nauseous after enduring what turned into an 11-game losing streak on Wednesday night in Anaheim as they dropped their second consecutive game in which they scored just one run. Joking aside, Weiss never made it to the ballpark on Wednesday. He was taken to the hospital after enduring stomach...

Rocky Mountain Maybes

Rocky Mountain Maybes When most people think about the Colorado Rockies Farm System, they will immediately think about the abundance of high potential pitchers: guys like Jon Gray, Eddie Butler, Kyle Freeland, Jordan Lyles and Tyler Matzek. I would would agree and say that it is easy to correlate the Rockies Farm System with pitching […]

The Nationals’ Max Scherzer said he “wouldn’t be opposed,” while Madison Bumgarner wants to keep hitting. The Rockies’ Jordan Lyles also chimed in on the debate. He supports letting pitchers hit, according...

Daily SP Rankings: Wednesday, Apr 29

Wednesday is a deep day of pitching, giving us 21 starters that rate average or better. In fact, only a couple outings (Jordan Lyles at Arizona) seem to have very little upside. Alex Wood has had curiously low K totals in his last two starts. I’d start him against Washington, but if he makes it three in a row I’ll have to give it further inspection. Carlos Martinez has been...

Rockies remain loaded with questions

The old baseball axiom says you can’t win a pennant in April, but you can lose it, meaning that getting off to a good start is crucial to staying in the playoff race all season long. But what does a hot start teach you about your team if they aren’t a realistic postseason contender? Are the New York Mets the team to beat now? What does coming out of the gate with six straight...

While You Were (Day) Drinking (At Altitude) 2015 Game 17 (SD at COL)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an afternoon in the pub at a mile high of elevation. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

Three games proves nothing

Calm down; one series does not a season make. The Rockies opening series sweep of the Brewers was fun to watch, but let’s pump the brakes before we plan the parade route. Curmudgeon. Negative Nancy. Buzz kill. Call me what you want, but the truth is the Colorado Rockies face a formidable uphill battle if they want to finish the season above .500. Walt Weiss’ club couldn...
