Colorado Rockies continue winning ways on the road

  The Colorado Rockies put up football scores at Coors Field and forget to show up on the road. That’s what tradition has bestowed upon the Rockies. Their fans have almost accepted that if the team is going to make a run at the playoffs, that they simply have to cross their fingers and hope for a few wins away from Coors Field. Even in the good years, like 2009, the Rockies were...

Colorado Rockies win one, lose one in long day at Coors Field

  Everyone in Colorado is sick of the rain. Anyone whose job is at Coors Field has to be dreaming of a vacation to the desert. On Saturday at Coors Field, the Colorado Rockies finished their doubleheader with the San Francisco Giants at 11:52 pm, picking up a victory on the back-end of the twin bill.

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...

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.

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...
