Weighing Arenado’s chances at three in a row

The Colorado Rockies finally locked up win No. 50, the last MLB club to accomplish the feat in 2015, on the season on Tuesday night against the Atlanta Braves thanks in part to some nifty glove work by third baseman Nolan Arenado.

It’s a long road to Rock Bottom

Mom… Dad… Are we there yet? How much longer? When will we get there?

Arenado welcomes becoming new face of Rockies' franchise

For many years, Troy Tulowitzki was unequivocally the face of the Colorado Rockies, but now that he's no longer with the team, there's another young star on the team who has been tagged with that title, and says he has no problem inheriting the designation. "If that's the case, that's the case," third baseman Nolan Arenado said. "I play hard. I want to be a guy that wins. I want...

Why the rush? Why the training wheels?

The prospect game is all about patience, and Rockies fans are fresh out of that. As Colorado skipper Walt Weiss indicated to the home plate umpire Monday night that there would be a double switch to begin the seventh inning, you could already see and hear the disbelief spread throughout the Rockies faithful. They’re pulling him with only 75 pitches after six innings of one-hit...

De La Rosa dazzles as Colorado Rockies sneak in a victory

  How bad would the Colorado Rockies be without Jorge De La Rosa? Before the comments fly about how a last place team can’t be any worse than where they currently are, give it an honest thought. If the Rockies didn’t have De La Rosa, this team, with the current pitching staff, could be historically bad. The fact that De La Rosa can stop the bleeding every fifth day gives some...

Bandwagon Rockies fans have it right

Every Rockies season, game and inning feels like déjà vu. Whether it’s atrocious starting pitching, the bullpen being a complete mess or key strikeouts by key players in big moments, nothing changes. Those covering the Rockies could easily write the same stories game-after-game, year-after-year. The never-ending cycle of dreadful, mind-numbing baseball is frustrating to watch...
