On April 5, 1993, the Colorado Rockies played a baseball game in Queens against the New York Mets at the now-gone Shea Stadium. They lost 3-0.

Starting pitcher David Neid…...

When the Colorado Rockies did not sign even one major league free agent this past offseason, it was a reminder they had once invested $172.5M in two starting pitchers. It was December of 2000 and less than three years later, neither would be seen in purple pinstripes ever again. Mike Hampton (eight-years, $121M) and Denny Neagle (five-years, $51.5M) were signed…

The indelible mark on our memories is left oftentimes by the sheer rarity of an event or the magnitude of a result. LoDo legends such as Carlos González and Nolan Arenado have their share of heartwarming efforts, but reflecting upon their best single-game performance comes down to their highlight-making cycles in 2010 and on Father’s Day in 2017, respectively. It was…

In a 14-4 drubbing of the Diamondbacks in 2004, the performance of one Rockies player may have gone overlooked in a box score filled with crooked numbers. The onslaught on Arizona starter Elmer Dessens lasted for four innings and nine runs, culminating with two innings and four runs against knuckleball reliever Steve Spark. Five players recorded two or more hits on…

Following an outstanding 2007 season that saw Matt Holliday fall short of winning the second NL MVP in franchise history, the Oklahoma native put forth an equally impressive 2008 in his final year before being traded to the Oakland Athletics. Entering a three-game series at home versus Atlanta, Holliday had a slash line of .182/.280/.364 through the first six games…

Antonio Senzatela has come a long way since signing as a 16-year-old out of Venezuela, both literally and figuratively. After an injury-plagued season at Double-A in 2016, Senzatela made the Opening Day roster in 2017 with a mere seven starts about Class High-A. The 22-year-old tossed five shutout innings in his big league debut to begin the season in Milwaukee…

The mountaintop. The pinnacle. The apex. The peak. The zenith. In sports, these words are used to describe the rarest of achievements. Why? Because all the way at the top, there is only room for one. And in the history of the Colorado Rockies, there has been one – and only one – pitcher to complete a nine-inning baseball game…...
