For every fan who sat through all 162 games this season for the Colorado Rockies, you should be saluted. Despite witnessing the fifth-worst season in franchise history (68-94, .420), there were moments that made an indelible mark on all our memories, even if you experienced it the morning after. That, ultimately, is the reward for committing to a team: memories that leave a mark in our minds and make an impact on our hearts. The Heartstrings There are no any shortages of heartfelt moments in our National Pastime. The start to the 2022 season captured hearts in Denver in an unexpected way.  There was the first full-capacity Opening Day in three years – with the city’s own Kyle Freeland given…

When we look back on the Colorado Rockies’ 2022 season in a decade, what will be remembered most? Is there a chance we may not recall much of anything from the slate of 162 games we just witnessed? Any time a team fails to win the World Series – there are always 29 teams in this situation in a given year – there will always be room to contextualize what was askew in addition to what went properly or even better than expected. We can learn a lot about 2022 by reflecting upon the 2012 Rockies. That squad from a decade ago lost a club-record 98 games. They were three years removed from their last postseason appearance (2009) and would…

Colorado had everything going in their favor on Monday night, namely a 5-1 early lead over the slumping Giants who didn’t arrive at their hotel until after 2 a.m. Alas, Chad Kuhl got Coors Field-ed and the seven run from the Rockies’ lineup wasn’t enough. How did it fall apart? What kind of infamous MLB debut did we just witness? And what did Michael Toglia do that only Hall of Famer Larry Walker has accomplished? </p> BUY TICKETS HERE: https://gametime.hnyj8s.net/c/3442941/1443269/10874 If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, crisis counseling and referral services can be accessed by calling 1-800-GAMBLER (1-800-426-2537) (IL/IN/LA/MI/NJ/PA/WV/WY), 1-800-NEXT STEP (AZ), 1-800-522-4700 (CO/NH), 888-789-7777/visit http://ccpg.org/chat (CT), 1-800-BETS OFF (IA), 877-8-HOPENY/text HOPENY (467369) (NY), visit OPGR.org (OR),…

Kyle Freeland loves to pitch against Milwaukee about as much as Yonathan Daza loves multi-hit games. After a loss on Labor Day, Rockies take the next two and win a series over the contending Brewers. How dramatic was Tuesday’s victory? Who made franchise history? And whose homer on Wednesday was an extreme rarity?

The injury on Thursday in St. Louis that saw Antonio Senzatela helped off the field turned out to be just as bad as it looked. Possibly even worse. The Colorado Rockies placed the 27-year-old on the injured list with a left ACL tear on Friday that effectively ended his 2022 season. During his pregame media scrum, manager Bud Black announced...

Other than the traditional post-game handshakes that punctuate a win at Coors Field, at no point during Tuesday’s 5-3 victory over the San Diego Padres did the Colorado Rockies unveil any celebratory ritual. Some clubs will bestow players with a football helmet, cowboy hat or a suit jacket following a home run, while others will give teammates a spin through the dugout in a laundry cart during the game. To this point in the season, the Rockies opt for a celebration post-game by honoring the stand-out player or staff member with the MVP chain. But now, there’s a new unifying item in their clubhouse. Crocs. “I came in wearing Crocs and (Austin) Gomber definitely noticed, (Lucas) Gilbreath noticed,” Chad Kuhl…

Trailing 5-0 through much of the game and unable to figure out Arizona’s Zac Gallen, Colorado manages to find a way to win the rubber match and take their second consecutive series all thanks to C.J. Cron. What reliever celebrated a milestone? Which players emerged from a slump? And who did the Rockies acquire in a trade?

Ideally, the teams with two best records in their sport meet in the championship to stake claim as the best in the world. With a playoff format that can oftentimes take a month and prevent such a scenario from happening, the two best records in MLB actually clashed in the National League Division series last season. The NL West produced 213 combined wins between the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers last season. Just when it seemed the division can’t get any better, the San Diego Padres started to play up to their potential this season- even without Fernando Tatis Jr. – and the rebuilding Arizona Diamondbacks have been much better than advertised. Despite all the typical turnover of…

As you sit down to watch the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night against the Miami Marlins, there will come an exchange in the bottom of the second or third inning that will flash by faster than you should be able to catch. With Rockies’ starting pitcher Chad Kuhl toeing the slab, awaiting the sign from his catcher, Marlins’ Jacob Stallings...
