2015 season preview: Colorado Rockies

The Colorado Rockies knew changes were needed after their fourth straight losing season, one that saw them drop 96 games and barely avoid a third straight last place finish in the NL West. But rather than trading the high salaries of Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez and rebuilding, the Rockies instead dumped GM Dan O’Dowd and replaced him with Jeff Bridich in hopes that a change...

Hernandez debuts with 2 hitless frames, Rockies rip Mariners

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.

Back after posting an AL-best 2.14 ERA last season, the right-hander's first pitch was hit by Corey Dickerson to the wall in center. After a walk,...

2015 Fantasy Baseball Catchers Rankings

Catchers are like the TE of fantasy baseball. They have the elites, who will require a draft pick probably higher than their actual value, but separates your from the rest of the pack.  Last season Carlos Santana and Jonathan Lucroy were the only backstops to score 600+ fantasy points, according to our scoring system. Buster Posey put up 583.  Eight catchers had between 400...

Colorado Rockies: Time to shop Wilin Rosario

After signing free agent catcher Nick Hundley to a two-year $6.25 million deal, the Colorado Rockies are faced with a three-way controversy behind the dish, which includes Wilin Rosario and Michael McKenry. Hundley was brought on to be the starting catcher, leaving Rosario, the Rockies starting backstop for the past three seasons, to come up with ways to get at-bats. The power-hitting...

Rockies sign catcher Nick Hundley

The Colorado Rockies have been relatively quiet this offseason, the first under new general manager Jeff Bridich’s guidance. But it sounds like Wednesday the team made a move that could have a subtly important impact for the team’s future. According to Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun, the Rockies have agreed with veteran backstop Nick Hundley on a two-year deal worth just north...

Player Profile #187: Wilin Rosario | C | COL

Last year Wilin Rosario’s HR/FB rate fell, but his average fly ball distance went up. Wait, what? It’s true according to Baseball Heat Maps: Rosario’s average fly ball distance, 2012-2014 (Courtesy: BaseballHeatMaps.com) When it comes to analyzing Rockies’ batters, I’ve learned the numbers are often beyond comprehension. There’s just no analogous situation to playing...

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...

What’s in Store for the Rockies this Offseason? Part I

The Rockies offseason began in relative upheaval when long-tenured GM Dan O’Dowd and Director of Major League Operations Bill Geivett resigned.  For a front office that had been notably resistant to change, it will be interesting to see what direction new GM Jeff Bridich takes the franchise. Bridich hopes to bring a breath of fresh air to a Rockies franchise looking to reach the...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Disappointments — Catchers

Source: Victor Decolongon/Getty Images North America If sports are anything, they are great sources of drama.

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Revisiting Rankings

Preseason rankings are always fun. And futile. Everything a ranker thinks he know, seems to go out the window soon after the first pitch of the season is thrown. Sure, any ranker will get some right. And they’ll undoubtedly get some wrong that seem stupid in retrospect. As humans we see what we wish to see. Oh, this guy has a platoon split? He’ll get it figured out. This dude...

2014 Catcher Recap: The Flop Five

The 2014 fantasy baseball season has ended. I’m not one for superlatives or useless “Who was this season’s fantasy MVP?!” stuff because — let’s be honest — that doesn’t help you moving forward. But end-of-season recaps are a necessity as they bring a sense of closure and tie up any remaining loose ends, so over the next week or two we’ll recap what we saw from...

What Happened to Wilin Rosario?

After a breakout 2013 season in which Wilin Rosario hit .292 with 21 home runs, fantasy owners had high hopes entering the 2014 season. Unfortunately, he struggled for the first two months of the season before ultimately finding his way the last four months of the season. During the first two months of the year he had a .225/.261/.395 slash line with a .240 BABIP. In the last four...

6 Months Of Pitching And 4.5 Months Of Hitting Now Complete

Around six months ago, your mother left us in the middle of the night with nothing but each other and our drafted fantasy teams.

BTS Player of the Week – Colorado Rockies’ Wilin Rosario

By Anthony Weber Player of Week- Wilin Rosario (9/15-9/21) The Colorado Rockies as a team this 2014 MLB season are near the top of every batting statistical category.  Getting hits and scoring runs has not been the problem for this team that has the third worst record in baseball.  The trouble for the Rockies is that they have not been able to outscore their opponents, despite...

Yesterday I had some issues updating my entry after lineups were submitted, so my Official Lineup below contains two players who didn’t start — Justin Turner and Gregory Polanco. Oh well! For the players that did play, my pitchers were very good as Gio Gonzalez and Danny Salazar combined for 50 points, and both Wilin Rosario and Michael Cuddyer had big games as well. Overall...

Dugout Digest – do or die for the Brewers

This is really a last gasp for the Milwaukee Brewers. After a crushing 3-2, 13 inning loss to the Cardinals on Thursday, the Brewers are six games back of St. Louis in the NL Central, and 3.5 games behind the Pirates for the NL’s second Wild Card spot. You can pretty much count out the division at this point, but Milwaukee still has a shot at the Wild Card, especially given that...
