Colorado Rockies have a chance to redefine themselves in final months

  The Colorado Rockies lost 3-2 on Wednesday at Wrigley Field in Chicago. The reality is, no one cares. It sounds flippant, but the day-in and day-out results really have very little effect on anything anymore in 2015. Essentially, the final results after game 162 will be that the Rockies didn’t win enough games and lost too many. How those actual numbers look really doesn’t...

3 teams that could use the talents of Colorado Rockies’ catcher Willin Rosario

In the past few seasons, Wilin Rosario has been a source of power for the Colorado Rockies. Entering the league in 2011, Rosario earned a full-time gig as the Rockies catcher in 2012. He thanked them by knocking out 28 home runs to go along with 71 RBI and a solid slash line of .270/.312/.530. Rosario came back with another great campaign in 2013, hitting 21 homers, plating 79 RBI...

Colorado Rockies drop second straight in San Diego

  Well, if there was any momentum that the Colorado Rockies may have built, it was officially crushed by the All-Star break. The Rockies lost for the second straight night to the San Diego Padres 5-4. It was another up-and-down game in which the Rockies were down early, got back into it, then watched as the bullpen gave up a gut-wrenching home run to lead the Rockies down the losing...

Where did the power go for Colorado Rockies Wilin Rosario?

Wilin Rosario was the toast of the Colorado Rockies in 2012 and 2013. In 2012, Rosario hit for a .270 batting average with 28 home runs and 71 runs batted in. Rosario followed that up with an even stronger 2013 campaign, hitting .292 with 21 home runs and 79 RBI.

It keeps getting worse for the Colorado Rockies

  The only thing worse than watching the Colorado Rockies lose for their fans is having to stay up past midnight to watch them lose. On Wednesday night against the Angels, the Rockies had plenty of chances to win, but they couldn’t put things together, losing 3-2 when Los Angeles squeaked a run across the plate in the top of the 9th inning.

Not too long ago the New York Yankees helped Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa get an inside-the--park home run (officially ruled a double) by misplaying a routine pop fly in the outfield. As it turns out, the Yankees are not the only generous ones. Saturday Arizona D-Backs short stop Cliff Pennington got a little help turning a routine bunt in to a two-RBI triple.It looks like...

Colorado Rockies would be well served to learn some lessons in San Francisco

Saturday afternoon at AT&T Park was the latest example of who the Giants are, from top-to-bottom of their entire organization. The Rockies, up three runs early, were never able to get comfortable, and were never able to bury the Giants for a simple reason. The...

Colorado Rockies doomed by bad decisions in loss to Marlins

With the game tied 2-2, the Rockies had a great chance to take a lead in the 7th inning. Carlos Gonzalez had already...

As lineup lock time approached, I pulled Arenado for Aramis Ramirez, making the switch for two reasons. First, Ramirez was $300 cheaper and I wanted to improve a hidden lineup slot. Second,...

Hundley amassed a .238 average in parts of seven seasons with the Padres and .233 with the Orioles last season. This year...
