Rockies closer John Axford making All-Star case

The latest All-Star Game fan voting updates were released on Monday, and with less than a week remaining for voting, it doesn’t look like the Rockies will have any starters on the National League squad. Nolan Arenado has not budged at fourth among third baseman in votes despite putting up MVP-like numbers. While Arenado will surely be put on the roster as a reserve, there’s another...

What the Rockies Have In Nolan Arenado

It’s been a good stretch for Nolan Arenado. In the past seven games, he’s hit eight home runs. Going back seven games is an arbitrary endpoint, so, in the five games preceding, Arenado hit either a double or a triple. After a May 23 doubleheader, Arenado was batting .257; since then, he’s batted .333, and […]

Arenado stays hot but Rockies fall to Giants

If baseball were more like basketball and the team truly went as its stars go, the Colorado Rockies would be riding one of the hottest streaks in baseball thanks to Nolan Arenado. The third baseman is hitting .407 in his last seven games with eight home runs, 15 RBI and a goliath 1.333 slugging percentage. Arendao drove in eight runs during the Rockies’ weekend series against San...

Nolan Arenado continues impressive week in Colorado Rockies loss

  This is starting to get ridiculous. Despite the Colorado Rockies 6-3 loss to the San Francisco Giants on Sunday at AT&T Park, the story remains the emergence of Nolan Arenado as not just an All-Star, but as a superstar. The third baseman stepped to the plate in the 1st inning with a runner on second base and one out. When Giants starter Madison Bumgarner tried to slip a slider...

Rockies-Athletics Preview

There's hasn't been a whole lot for the Colorado Rockies and Oakland Athletics to feel good about this season. At least a young player for each team is making each game a little more exciting. Nolan Arenado looks to extend a pair of impressive streaks for the Rockies, while Athletics rookie Billy Burns brings one of his own into Monday night's matchup in Oakland. Colorado (33-42...

Colorado Rockies need to stop denying Troy Tulowitzki trade rumors

The Colorado Rockies can deny all they want but once the trading deadline comes around, Troy Tulowitzki will be on the block. Tulowitzki can say that he would like to stay on the Rockies but that is not in the best interest for them. The team is not getting any better and Tulowitzki is their best trading piece. They can get the most in return for him. They tried their best to let...

Should Mets Trade One Of Their Top Young Pitchers For Tulowitzki?

Columnist Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe spoke to a couple of MLB executives who say the Mets are still the best match for trading with the Colorado Rockies for All Star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki. Cafardo believes the Mets would have to part with one of their young pitchers, and says Steven Matz could be the one who gets a deal done. “The Mets continue to be the best match...

Colorado Rockies would be well served to learn some lessons in San Francisco

  It must be nice to be a fan of the San Francisco Giants. Those who watch the Colorado Rockies can only be jealous. Saturday afternoon at AT&T Park was the latest example of who the Giants are, from top-to-bottom of their entire organization. The Rockies, up three runs early, were never able to get comfortable, and were never able to bury the Giants for a simple reason. The...

Frazier and Arenado vying for 2015 All Star game honors

Todd Frazier and Nolan Arenado are leading primaries for the National League’s starting third base honors in the 2015 All Star game. It’s a two-man race and no one else is remotely in the vicinity. It could be that way for a couple years with both guys under 30. Frazier, 29, is playing his fifth big league season and has nearly eclipsed home run and doubles totals from 2014...

Arenado and CarGo propel Colorado Rockies offense as bullpen holds on

  Tommy Kahnle let out a deep breath. The reliever put a scare into the fanbase of the Colorado Rockies, but ultimately, he struck out Buster Posey with the tying run on base to end the game. The Rockies hung on to steal a victory at AT&T Park in San Francisco. The late scare could easily have overshadowed what the Rockies had accomplished early in the game. However, what both...

Rockies' Ben Paulsen makes top play of the day robbing HR

Rockies rookie Ben Paulsen has mostly been playing first base in Justin Morneau’s absence. However, he’s started in left field in each of the Rockies’ past three games. On Thursday, he made one of his best defensive plays at either position. In the bottom of the eighth inning he made a leaping catch over the left field wall to rob the Diamondbacks’ Chris Owings of a home...

The truth about Troy Tulowitzki

I get it.  Troy Tulowitzki is the heart and soul of the Colorado Rockies.  I’ve been to Coors Field, seen all the Tulo jerseys, heard the applause every time his name is mentioned.  He’s an icon for the club and trading him would be a very hard thing for the Rockies to do. Not only that.  He’s the best shortstop in baseball, right? Up until this season, I would have agreed...

Is Nolan Arenado the Best Third Baseman in Baseball?

For the past few years, the Colorado Rockies haven’t had much go their way. They’ve finished in last or next to last in all of the past five years and in their entire team history, they’ve never finished in first place in their division. They’ve won one NLCS, which was in 2007, and went on to play the Boston Red Sox in the World Series and were swept. Sorry Rockies fans....

Axford struggles as Colorado Rockies lose late to Diamondbacks

  Anyone who watches baseball could have seen it coming. John Axford has been nearly perfect for the Colorado Rockies in 2015. It has been a season in which he has re-established himself as one of baseball’s elite closers. However, even the best closers are bound to blow a few games each season. It is simply the nature of baseball. Mariano Rivera did it, Trevor Hoffman did it...

Rockies manager Weiss supports 2B LeMahieu for All-Star Game

Despite being among the leading second baseman in the National League in several offensive categories, the Rockies’ DJ LeMahieu is not among the top-five vote-getters for the All-Star game. Teammates and fellow infielders Troy Tulowitzki and Nolan Arenado may have more national name-recognition, but LeMahieu might be just as worthy to be in the All-Star game as these two. Rockies...
