When the Colorado Rockies dropped off their minor league invites during the 2020-21 offseason at the Post Office, they received some quality RSVPs. C.J. Cron, a player who probably should have been picked up by a car service a few years ago before making if official this February, solidified the middle part of the lineup throughout the year and won…...

For the third time in as many weeks, the future of the Colorado Rockies is on the field and in the box score.  Ryan Vilade, the club’s top overall selection in the 2017 MLB Draft, was selected from Triple-A ahead of Saturday’s game against the Washington Nationals. Though the 22-year-old finished his debut 0-for-4, he walked once and put the…...

After 70 years of producing baseball trading cards for several generations of sports memorabilia collectors, the most notable name in the industry, Topps, is now on the outside looking in. In a memo revealed by numerous sources on Friday, Major League Baseball and the MLB Players’ Association have reached an agreement with Fanatics to exclusively produce baseball cards. The Topps…...

In their 29th season of play, never before have the Colorado Rockies experienced such vacillating results in so many ways. Each day seemingly brings a surprising statistic of excellence – typically when at home – or a…...

The prototypical batting lineup probably looks the same for most folks when they dream up a perfect team. The speediest player on the roster – center fielder or shortstop – has traditionally batted first. (Of course, having a player with the best on-base percentage leading off may take some precedence in the modern age of sabermetrics, but the position is…...

It may have been only 23 years between All-Star Games, but it sure as heck felt like a century since all eyes were firmly focused on Denver for its baseball. In 1998, it was the Blake Street Bombers – OF Larry Walker, 3B Vinny Castilla and OF Dante Bichette – representing the Colorado Rockies in the Midsummer Classic, leading the…...

DNVR Rockies beat reporters Drew Creasman and Patrick Lyons battle for supremacy discussing various hot topics pertaining to the inhabitants of 2001 Blake Street as well all the scuttlebutt in and around the game of baseball. After a strange 60-game regular season and even weirder 16-team playoff format set in  neutral site locations, Major League Baseball did the improbable and…

The list of players to have hit .400 is short and illustrious. Wee Willie Keeler. Ty Cobb. Rogers Hornsby. Fourteen Hall of Famers, all of whom managed to bat .312 or above in their career, including Cobb’s career .366 batting average, decorate the list of the most elite hitters to play the game of baseball. The most recent and memorable…

Prior to the 2019 Colorado Rockies season, it was speculated that one of the reasons the club could fail would be due to the loss of a few essential members of their clubhouse.
