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.

Watch this warp-speed tour through Wrigley Field catacombs with John Axford

It's significantly...

Troy Tulowitzki felt 'blindsided' by trade to Blue Jays

Troy Tulowitzki knew he could be traded before Friday’s deadline, but the former Colorado Rockies shortstop apparently expected a little more warning than what he received.

Rockies win in first game of the post-Tulo era

Daniel Descalso did his best to show Rockies manager Walt Weiss that he can fill Troy Tulowitzki’s departed cleats, at least somewhat, in Tuesday’s win against the Chicago Cubs, the club’s first game since August 2006 without Troy Tulowitzki on payroll. Descalso was 1-3 with a double, a walk and an RBI and made a leaping grab with two on and two out to rob a hit from Monday’s...

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.

Trade of Troy Tulowitzki still stings, even if it was inevitable for Colorado Rockies fans

  It’s not fun. This game we all love isn’t supposed to stab us in the back. The business side isn’t supposed to get in the way of the passion.

It was the first time pain like that was felt since nearly four years ago, when the club dealt Ubaldo Jimenez. With...
