Nolan Arenado is the new face of the Colorado Rockies

  The torch of the Colorado Rockies has officially been passed. Dante Bichette passed the torch to Larry Walker, Larry Walker passed the torch to Todd Helton, Todd Helton passed it to Troy Tulowitzki, and as the 2015 season comes to a close, it can be officially stated that Nolan Arenado has picked up the torch that Tulowitzki left on the clubhouse floor when he was dealt to the...

The (Tu)highs and (Tu)lows of the Tulo era

Drafted by the Colorado Rockies with the seventh overall pick in the 2005 amateur draft, Troy Tulowitzki, for nine seasons, was Rockies baseball. The all-star shortstop affectionately known as “Tulo” made his Major League debut in 2006, at the age of 21, appearing in 25 games at the end of the season. The next year, Tulowitzki cemented himself as the Rockies’ starting shortstop...

Ranking Tulowitzki among the Rockies greats

Todd Helton. Larry Walker. Dante Bichette. And now Troy Tulowitziki. All names, as of Monday, of former Rockies considered among the team’s all-time greats. With the trade of Tulowitzki to the Toronto Blue Jays, Colorado says goodbye to one of the most prolific offensive and defensive talents to patrol Coors Field. Ten years ago the Rockies’ No. 1 draft pick signed with the...

Rockies look to rebound against Rangers

If there are one thing the 2015 Colorado Rockies should be used to it’s a rain delay. So far during the 2015 season, the Rockies have been halted by rain for 26+ hours. ”We invented it,” manager Walt Weiss said.”We’ve been making it rain all year. I don’t think I’ve ever seen rain in San Diego. This is strange.” With a 39-51 record, Colorado is still looking for its...

The MHS all-time Rockies All-Star starting lineup

Tuesday night in Cincinnati the Colorado Rockies will have three players – three infielders, to be exact – on the National League roster for the 2015 MLB All-Star Game. It got those of us in the office wondering, “Will all three Rockies be on the field at the same time tonight?” With second baseman D.J. LeMahieu starting (due to Dee Gordon’s injury) and shortstop Troy...

Troy Tulowitzki no longer the best player on Rockies infield?

Ever since Todd Helton retired, shortstop Troy Tulowitzki has been synonymous with the Colorado Rockies. However, Tulowitzki is arguably not even the best player on the Rockies infield anymore. Tim Healey of Sports On Earth compares Tulowitzki’s statistics this seasons with third baseman Nolan Arenado and second baseman DJ LeMahieu. According to various offensive and defensive...

One-on-one with Todd Helton

Todd Helton is the Colorado Rockies. He’s the only player in franchise history with his number retired (apologies to Jackie Robinson, but he never played in Colorado). He is the best “receiver of the baseball” Jim Tracy has ever seen. He’s funny. He respects the game. And, he knows it was his responsibility to give back to the game. His numbers are Hall of Fame worthy, and...

Rockies' Arenado learning from Tulowitzki just as he learned from Helton

Shortstop Troy Tulowitzki is arguably the face of the Colorado Rockies franchise right now. Though at 30-years-old, his days as that face will eventually come to an end whether because of age, injury or trade. Third baseman Nolan Arenado, at 24-years-old, is the most likely to take on that mantle following Tulo. Before Tulowitzki, Todd Helton was synonymous with the Rockies. Tulowitzki...

Different Strokes

The dream was really no different than it ever was. The feeling of being rushed. Getting called upon, but never quite being able to get ready. Always in slow motion. It used to happen all the time, but not lately. Todd Helton had the dream “quite often” when he played baseball for a living. But when he stopped, so too did the dream. It just went away. But in April, the night...

Why Baseball is Great

Every year, hope springs eternal for our hometown baseball team. I can’t tell you how many amazing days I’ve had at Coors Field since moving here in 1999. Sun-splashed opening days and freezing-cold World Series nights in October, mixed with a wide variety of different games, have made going to watch the Rockies game a thrill.

Colorado Rockies “what if”: Todd Helton

If you haven’t had a chance to read ESPN’s Baseball Tonight “What If” series, I highly recommend it; especially the Ken Griffey, Jr. special.

Their work combined with the Colorado Rockies retiring Todd Helton’s number this week got me thinking about a different what...

Todd Helton’s ceremonial weekend was bittersweet

To begin, two important confessions: First, I am a fan of the Colorado Rockies. Despite their current record, perceived or actual ineptitude, or inability to win their own division, I will always cheer first, and loudest, for the Colorado Rockies. Second, I am a Todd Helton fan. Now that both of those truths are out in broad daylight, I offer the crux of this very column: Something...

Not much to say here, other than that Sunday was the best day of Rockies baseball in a long time. #Retire17 went off without a hitch, people heard Todd Helton speak in public about how he was glad he spent his entire career with the Rockies (wonder shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was paying attention), and oh yeah, the Rockies won both of their games against the Cincinnati Reds.
