Rockies @ Dodgers April 17, 2015: Many Notes Edition

After the sweep of the Mariners and an off-day, the Rockies are in LA to start a three game series. Kyle Kendrick will take the ball for Colorado. Kendrick is a good example of innings-eating mediocrity, though his two starts this year have been interesting, at least. His first start, on opening day, was a gem. He went 7 innings, struck out six, walked none, and allowed no runs on...

Rockies playing a mile-high above everyone else

Rafael Betancourt Remembers The Last Man He Hit

I told Rafael Betancourt that he hadn’t hit a batter in 10,307 batters faced. He laughed, and said nobody had ever told him that before. “I remember it. It was Marcus Thames. Funny thing was? It was an 0-2 count,” the Rockies reliever said. When I asked if it was the last time he ever […]

Adam Ottavino: New Closer With New Weapons

Adam Ottavino has been frustrated by platoon splits over his career. And admittedly, he’s had trouble with the lefties. So he’s looked around baseball for pitchers with similar skillsets that he can learn from.

NL West games should be priority for the Rockies

Just recruit more five-star athletes. That was the joke. One of the first radio shows I was ever a part of was focused almost entirely on the recent decline of University of Colorado football, and the old joke between the hosts was that the average fan’s solution to the problem was to “just recruit more five-star athletes.” Obviously, if it were as simple as that, CU would...

Nolan Arenado’s latest catch is a beauty

The most important player for the Colorado Rockies this season might not be Carlos Gonzalez or Troy Tulowitzki, but instead third baseman Nolan Arenado. Arenado already has a reputation as one of the best defensive third basemen in baseball, and his bat isn’t exactly mediocre.
