Rockies Injury Update: Michael Cuddyer, Carlos Gonzalez, Rafael Betancourt

Although Michael Cuddyer certainly showed his bat was back to major league standard when he hit for the cycle on Sunday, his fitness might not have been, as he had to sit out on both Tuesday and Wednesday with hamstring tightness.

Tyler Matzek starting to make good

What do we make of the Rockies rookie left-hander Tyler Matzek at this point in the season? His surface statistics – a 2-9 record and a 5.38 earned run average in 77 innings so far this season – don’t scream rising star. But for the Rockies, who’ve had very little to look forward to as their season trickles towards an inevitable last-place finish, Matzek remains the most...

Same old story as Colorado Rockies bullpen blows it again; time for Walt Weiss to put his foot down

Walt Weiss needs to put his foot down.At some point, the question has to be asked, why do the Colorado Rockies insist on employing a strategy that has been nothing short of a failure?That was the case again on Tuesday night, as Rockies rookie Tyler Matzek had a very good outing. Through 6-2/3 innings of one-run baseball, Matzek was showing that he was taking another step in his maturation...

The Rockies’ name misspelling mishaps continue

When will it end? The Colorado Rockies have been misspelling names with reckless abandon this season, to the point of prompting questions as to the literacy of the people in charge of such things.

Todd Helton’s ceremonial weekend was bittersweet

To begin, two important confessions: First, I am a fan of the Colorado Rockies. Despite their current record, perceived or actual ineptitude, or inability to win their own division, I will always cheer first, and loudest, for the Colorado Rockies. Second, I am a Todd Helton fan. Now that both of those truths are out in broad daylight, I offer the crux of this very column: Something...

Watch: Helton’s retirement ceremony

Not much to say here, other than that Sunday was the best day of Rockies baseball in a long time. #Retire17 went off without a hitch, people heard Todd Helton speak in public about how he was glad he spent his entire career with the Rockies (wonder shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was paying attention), and oh yeah, the Rockies won both of their games against the Cincinnati Reds.

Michael Cuddyer Hits For Cycle With Help From Outfield Mishap (Video)

Luckily, Michael Cuddyer got a little help along the way. Cuddyer came to bat for the Colorado Rockies in the first inning of their game against the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday and laced a line drive to right...

Cuddyer hits for second career cycle

At the start of Spring Training, before the disabled list became the place to find the Rockies' stars, Michael Cuddyer was more than just a fine example of cerebral hitting. His batting practice became team policy. As the rounds go, specific swings are devoted to specific situations. Move a runner. Drive a guy in. Hit-and-run. Whatever situation comes up in a game, Cuddyer spent...
