Todd Helton led the Rockies to victory. There are plenty of quiet critics on Sunday afternoon. Todd Helton stepped to the plate in the top of the 7th inning with the game still scoreless. Jorge De La Rosa had done his job, giving the club glimpses of what they had seen in 2009. The lefty gave up just two hits,…...

On Monday, in a 16-6 loss to the Seattle Mariners, the third baseman launched his fourth home run of the spring, and the third in as many…...

Chris Nelson had the game winning hit for the Rockies. It came down to the last series of the season, but the Colorado Rockies have avoided their first 100-loss season in franchise history. On Monday night, after the Rockies had battled back against Rookie of the Year candidate Wade Miley, Rafael Betancourt came in to finish off the Diamondbacks and…...

Jordan Pacheco has been better than anyone expected. It shouldn’t be a surprise anymore. Jordan Pacheco can flat out hit. If things had gone according to plan for the Colorado Rockies, Pacheco would have only been the starting third baseman for about six weeks. As everyone is well aware, things haven’t gone according to plan for the Rockies. However, if…...

Drew Pomeranz has shown flashes of brilliance. It was ugly. It was a reminder of everything that is wrong with the Colorado Rockies. Then suddenly it looked like the Rockies would overcome everything that was so ugly. Dreams of a sweep ended quickly when the Dodgers put up six runs in the 3rd inning. However, the Rockies mounted an impressive…...

Wilin Rosario has been impressive at the plate for the Rockies. Most baseball fans don’t know the names of the majority of the guys in the starting lineup for the Colorado Rockies on Monday night. The Rockies were supposed to be the other team in the continuing Los Angeles Dodgers celebration tour following their acquisition of Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett…...

The Rockies continue to play well, but the 75 pitch limit remains. These Colorado Rockies are looking more like a good team than a team that was on a collision course with 100 loses less than two weeks ago. On Thursday afternoon in New York, the Rockies completed a four-game sweep of the Mets, their second in as many years.…...

The Rockies have found success from some unlikely sources. When the Colorado Rockies broke camp in early April, no one anticipated an August lineup that included Eric Young, Jr., DJ LaMahieu, Jonathan Herrera, and Chris Nelson in the same night. However, that lineup helped the Rockies score eight runs in the first three innings, propelling the team to a 9-6…...

Jeff Francis was the lone bright spot. Don’t let the score fool you. The Colorado Rockies lost 4-1 in Washington on Saturday afternoon, but the visiting club was never in the game. Lost in the poor starting pitching that has dominated the headlines for the Rockies has been their poor defense. Poor is just one of several words that can…...

Jeff Francis pitched very well and gave the Rockies a chance. A little starting pitching can go a long way. That was the lesson once again for the Colorado Rockies on Thursday night in Philadelphia. This time, however, the Rockies got to see firsthand what being on the right end of the strong pitching performance feels like. Jeff Francis, limited…...

Scutaro’s first Rockies home run was a game winner. A terrible road trip, one that has made nearly every believer jump off the bandwagon, ended with a bright spot on Tuesday night in San Francisco. The Colorado Rockies won 5-4, thanks to a 9th inning home run from Marco Scutaro, his first in a Rockies uniform. The home run was…...

Don’t blame Jamie Moyer for Thursday’s Rockies loss. One more base hit, or more good swing, and the Colorado Rockies might have been winners on Thursday afternoon. Despite being no-hit into the 7th inning by Madison Bumgarner, the Rockies were one swing away from tying the game in the bottom of the 9th inning. The Rockies found a way to…...

On Sunday, Justin Verlander absolutely dominated an offense that had caught fire. The flame-throwing right-hander tossed a complete game, giving up just one home run on a Ty…...

Tim Stauffer. Add that name to the list of pitchers who have completely dominated the Colorado Rockies offense that was supposed to be the best in the National League West. On Tuesday, Stauffer stifled the Rockies offense, going eight shutout innings and giving up just four hits. The Padres pitcher struck out eight and walked just one.There is no answer…...
