8 Guys You Had No Clue Are Still on MLB Rosters

The baseball season is long, as are the 15 and 60-day disabled lists, as are the massive transaction lists for all 30 clubs, especially during the middle of a divisional race when every available arm or bat is crucial. The average baseball fan can hardly remember their team’s starting nine and pitching rotation from this year’s opening day, let alone if a 10-year veteran outfielder...

Rockies need to commit to a rebuild

As the trade deadline hovers, the Rockies look like they’ll be sitting on their hands, as has been the MO for most of franchise history, despite an increasingly loud call among the fans for a chance in the status quo. There are legitimate reasons for teams to not partake in the trade deadline madness – trades made at this time of year can be an overreaction to a small sample...

De La Rosa does it again as Colorado Rockies only win with him on the mound

Can De La Rosa pitch everyday for the Rockies?The Colorado Rockies like to use unconventional wisdom in their front office.Maybe they can go back to the baseball thoughts of the early 1900's when a team had one starting pitcher and he pitched complete games every day, sometimes twice if there was a double header.

Rockies need to think long-term at trade deadline

Remember back in December when Colorado Rockies owner Dick Monfort told Troy Renck of the Denver Post that the Rockies should make the playoffs twice every five years?
