Dan O’Dowd has resorted to excuses. Winning is tough. Only one of 30 Major League teams can win every year, and in a league with no salary cap, the Colorado Rockies have an even tougher time winning than some of the other franchises. With that in mind, franchises in some of the smaller markets have two choices. They can either…...

The Rockies are the only ones who can’t see how bad this guy is. The Colorado Rockies made an announcement before Tuesday night’s game in Philadelphia. It wasn’t the announcement that many were expecting. Most thought that Jeremy Guthrie, the biggest trade mistake Dan O’Dowd has made, would be dealt. Instead, the announcement was that Guthrie was going to the…...

Jeremy Guthrie’s career may be ruined by his 2012 campaign. It’s the curse of loyalty. The Colorado Rockies lose night in and night out using the same script. Forget feeling comfortable with a big lead. Forget feeling like any game is in the bag. The Rockies starting pitching is so bad it is beyond a joke. In the Rockies 8-5…...

When will Dick and his brother make a move? No one called this Colorado Rockies team a World Series contender. No one said they would win 100 games. However, even the biggest critic couldn’t have thought that this team would be this bad, this soon. On Sunday, the Rockies were swept at home for the second straight three game series,…...

The former big leaguer who was known for his gritty work ethic and ability to always take a good at-bat stepped into a position that had so much potential. The Colorado Rockies lineup is chock full of talent. It sports two of the league’s premier young hitters in…...

One night after Jason Giambi delivered a walk-off, no doubt home run to right field, manager Jim Tracy decided to play that card again. This time, however, Tracy forgot that the club was down by three runs when Giambi stepped to the plate instead of Chris Iannetta in the bottom of the ninth inning. The logic of the move is…...

Ubaldo Jimenez is in the middle of a storied collapse. After starting the 2010 season 15-1, Jimenez has limped to a record of 4-12 since starting the 2010 All-Star game, including an 0-5 record so far in 2011. His record is terrible, but his lack of dominance is far more concerning than the record. Jimenez, Jim Tracy, and the Rockies…...

The Colorado pitching staff is chalk full of talent. They have Ubaldo Jimenez who throws 99 MPH heat with movement, to go along with breaking pitches that buckle opposing hitters knees. They have Aaron Cook, an All-Star a year ago who throws a sinker that ranks in the top 10 in all of baseball. They also have Jason Marquis, the…...

Jim Tracy quickly put his mark on the Colorado Rockies when he took over on Friday. He moved Troy Tulowitzki to the seventh spot in the lineup, Clint Barmes to the second spot, and Garrett Atkins back to the cleanup spot. The moves seemed to work beautifully as Barmes went 5-for-11 in the first two games after the change. Atkins,…...
