One-on-one with Nolan Arenado

Nolan Arenado is the best defensive third baseman in baseball. As his bat is warming up, he’s in position to become the best at the “hot corner” in the majors. He’s unquestionably the Colorado Rockies best young talent and his dazzling glovework is becoming the stuff of legend. I talked with Nolan about his place in the game, overcoming ADHD and what he thinks about the Troy...

Grinders are helping the Colorado Rockies

Baseball is a funny game. Mired in a 10-game losing streak, Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss was taken to the hospital where he underwent an appendectomy on May 13. That same night, scheduled starting pitcher Jordan Lyles lasted just one inning before a lined ball off of his hand sent him to the clubhouse for an early night. After Christian Bergman pitched the game of his young...

Brandon Barnes: Rockies sparkplug?

The Colorado Rockies have been playing well since Brandon Barnes was called up from Triple-A Albuquerque. The team had lost 15 of 18 games, but has gone 4-3 since his call-up, including a perfect 4-0 when he’s started. Coincidence? Mile High Sports sees a correlation: Although their third consecutive win was against a poor Reds team, the first two wins were against a hot Giants...

Video: Nolan Arenado Status Report: Still Ridiculous

As a Dodger fan, I root for Nolan Arenado 143 games a year, but I’ve come to understand that enduring great plays against your favorite team is sometimes the price you pay to watch him make great plays against the rest of the league. Arenado’s Colorado Rockies are currently playing a series against the Cincinnati Reds, which means I can just sit back and enjoy the show. Arenado...

Arenado leads Rockies to third consecutive win

Nolan Arenado is proving he’s much more than just a great glove at the hot corner. But that does’t mean he’s letting the leather take a day off. Arenado did a little bit of everything in Monday’s 5-4 victory over the Cincinnati Reds, including a sacrifice fly in the 9th inning to give the Rockies the lead. There was nothing spectacular about the at bat, especially considering...

JABO: Troy Tulowitzki is More Aggressive, Less Productive

Troy Tulowitzki has been in the news lately because of his desire to be traded away from Colorado (and then his desire not to be), but less publicized is the fact that he’s also in the midst of one of the least productive offensive stretches of his career. His above average walk/low strikeout plate approach has […]
