Optimizing Tyler Matek's starts

Personal catchers are nothing new in baseball. Every catcher has different tendencies (as does every pitcher), so it's not surprising that certain catchers would mesh better with certain pitchers. Ryan Hammon at Rockies Zingers thinks Colorado has such a relationship between Tyler Matzek and Michael McKenry. Hammon takes a look at Matzkek's SIRERA -- an ERA-estimator similar to FIP...

Pitching change: Rockies have a plan to improve on the mound

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – No one would dare suggest that the Rockies have figured out how to pitch. Their 22-year history indicates that they may never figure it out, and parts of their spring already suggest, “Here we go again.” Ace left-hander Jorge De La Rosa is down with a groin strain. Righty Kyle Kendrick will start Opening Day despite a career 4.42 ERA. Righty Jhoulys Chacin...

Hey Rockies, don’t rid of Rosario just yet

Pitching woes and the Colorado Rockies have become synonymous. It has undoubtedly been the biggest weak spot of the franchise since its berth two decades ago. And watching Madison Bumgarner single handedly win the World Series for the San Francisco Giants was evidence of how important pitching is to a team’s post season success. But recent talks in Denver have many demanding a...
