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...

Buy Low, Sell High: Catchers

This is the first in a series of posts looking at buy low and sell high candidates at the All-Star break.  It’s based on looking at the difference in fantasy value from the first half of the season and projected fantasy value for the second half (using the Steamer projections published at FanGraphs).  The idea here is that some fantasy owners in your league might be willing to...

Dodgers 8, Rockies 2: So Long, Colorado

We’re going to lightning-round this one out, because the Rockies are terrible and no one paid attention to this game past the sixth inning and oh my god it still took four hours and there’s another post coming. The featured image to this post is Adrian Gonzalez sliding safely into home, which was funny because the bases were loaded and catcher Wilin Rosario decided he didn...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Real Offensive Value — Catchers, Part II

There are two categories of catchers left on the fantasy landscape after our first real offensive value edition. There are catchers that were expected to be top notch catchers, but are merely performing as above average catchers. That’s bad enough, but then there are catchers that are actually performing below the league average, but are doing so on a daily basis. In many cases...

Brewers routed by Rockies in 'bad game' at home

MILWAUKEE -- With the way the Milwaukee Brewers have been a playing, a well-played loss Sunday in their final game of a 20-day stretch without an off day wouldn't have stuck with Ron Roenicke very long. What will stick with the skipper is the way the Brewers let the Colorado Rockies put the game away. After Milwaukee's offense cut a five-run deficit to 5-2, two errors on...

Brewers finish 'weird' road swing through Colorado with narrow win

In a series filled with strange plays and miscues, it was fitting another blunder by the Colorado Rockies helped the Milwaukee Brewers hold on for a 6-5 victory Sunday to complete their first sweep at Coors Field since 2004. Leading off the top of the ninth inning, Rockies left fielder Corey Dickerson just missed a home run off Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez. The ball hit so...

Ambulance Chasers, Week 12: Colorado in Crutches

The Colorado Rockies have not had an easy go of it this season.  After beginning the year in tremendous fashion, injuries have contributed to a pretty steady drop in the standings.  Once 22-14, the Rockies have fallen one game below .500, to 34-35. Pitching is always to blame when it comes to the blemishes of the Blake Street Bombers, and this year has been no exception, with...

‘Chicken Soup’ Rosario is doing what he does best tonight; sitting on the roost

Baby Bull? More like Sitting Bull. I owned Wilin Rosario last year in fantasy baseball, and I have to say it opened my eyes to one of the few things in baseball I apparently had been missing. This ********* guy gets A LOT of days off where he’s not in the lineup. Seriously, he makes Bryce Harper look like an everyday player. I meant to do this post two days ago, when Rosario got...

Rockies need Wilin Rosario to rebound quickly

Wilin Rosario’s season probably didn’t start out the way he would have liked, arguing with starter Jorge De La Rosa during the Rockies opening day loss to Miami. In hindsight, it’s fitting that Rosario’s season started on such a down note because it’s been pretty much all frustration since then. Rosario avoided the sophomore slump last season, turning in a performance almost...
