Expect different results at your own risk. The Colorado Rockies witnessed their bullpen blow a small lead once again on Tuesday night. What was a 3-1 lead in the 7th inning quickly turned into a 5-3 deficit. Scott Oberg, who probably is miscast and not quite ready for the big leagues, was to blame again in the nightcap. Anyone…...

The Colorado Rockies starting pitcher didn’t get through the 6th inning. Now fill in the next sentence yourself. Typically, the next sentence would be: Rockies bullpen gives up several runs in the loss. Instead, the next sentence comes as a surprise to Rockies fans. It read as follows: The Rockies bullpen records four shutout innings, completing a scoreless series in…...

In the bottom of the 7th inning, there were no Colorado Rockies fans expecting good results. Tommy Kahnle had just walked his fourth batter of the inning, only escaping a run because he was able to get Pedro Ciriaco to ground into a double play when Nolan Arenado grabbed the grounder, touched his bag then went to DJ LeMahieu…...

Carlos Gonzalez drilled a 1st inning homer to get the Colorado Rockies on the board, then he blooped a 9th inning base hit to win the game in walk-off style. The Rockies won their afternoon affair with the Braves 3-2. The two hits accounted for three RBIs, which was the total number of runs the Rockies scored on Saturday…...

For years, disgruntled fans of the Colorado Rockies have been calling for a boycott of Coors Field. They say that the only way ownership will make changes is if they get hit in the pocketbook. The problem, however, is that summer nights, with the sun setting over the Rocky Mountains, in the dry, crisp air, provides such a beautiful…...

The San Diego Chargers put up a couple of touchdowns and the Broncos could only muster a field goal…wait, this was baseball? Jorge De La Rosa’s 2015 debut went about as bad as anyone could have imagined. Maybe worse. The Rockies ace went just two innings, giving up nine runs on seven hits. Two of those were unearned. The line…...

It doesn’t always have to be pretty. Sometimes, in fact, it can be ugly. The Colorado Rockies were within an out of winning their first home series of the 2015 season on Sunday before LaTroy Hawkins gave up a walk, a base hit and a 2-run home run to Dexter Fowler to give the game away. While it is extremely…...

In preparation for trimming the roster down to 25 players before Sunday’s deadline, the Rockies have opted for other talent over some of their key players from 2014. Colorado has sent both LHP Rex Brothers and OF Brandon Barnes to the minors. Brothers has long been thought to be the closer of the future for the Rockies, but struggled in…...

Ryan Spilborghs called out the Rockies effort. The only thing worse than injured bodies in team sports is selfish play. There is no doubt that the Colorado Rockies have been riddled with injuries once again. While the past few seasons have been bad, the 2014 campaign has been marred by guys going onto the disabled list. No one will ever…...

Dan O’Dowd should be selling used cars. Dan O’Dowd might be the best salesperson in the state of Colorado. Why? Because many of the most ardent fans of the Colorado Rockies aren’t just trusting him, they are buying everything he says hook, line and sinker. Open up a new tab in the browser and take a look over on Twitter.…...

This was the scene at Coors Field on Saturday. Cue the circus music. Since 1993, the Colorado Rockies are no strangers to embarrassing themselves, but they may have hit a new low on Saturday at Coors Field. In the top of the 3rd inning, with the bases loaded, spot starter Christian Friedrich threw a pitch over catcher Michael McKenry’s head.…...

Jeff Francis is coming back to earth. Everyone following the Colorado Rockies knows the answer to the question. The question, what is wrong with this team, can be answered with one simple word. Pitching. The men on the mound have been absolutely brutal. That is putting it lightly. There is no way to be positive, there is no way to…...

Christian Friedrich has shown some flashes of serious talent. The Colorado Rockies should apologize to Christian Friedrich and the rest of the starting pitching staff. On Saturday night at Coors Field, the rookie took the mound against the hottest team in baseball, the Cincinnati Reds. The lefty pitched his way through the first inning in just eight pitches, looking like…...

The Rockies should trade Jeff Francis. The Colorado Rockies did on Wednesday night what they seem to do only when Jeff Francis takes the mound. They won. Wednesday night’s game was the latest strong performance from Francis, who was the butt of many jokes when he was re-acquired by the Rockies in June. In the face of his doubters, all…...

Christian Friedrich has been a big confidence boost for the Rockies. Christian Friedrich may be the biggest positive in a very negative season for the Colorado Rockies. Heading into spring training, the 2008 1st round draft choice had all of the markings of a bust. His progress had stalled. In his second season in Double-A Tulsa in 2011, Friedrich had…...

Is Dan O’Dowd’s theory backfiring on his young pitchers? Dan O’Dowd’s theory may be dismantling right in front of him. On Tuesday night at Coors Field, Christian Friedrich pitched well enough to keep his team in the game–until the 5th inning. In the fifth frame, the rookie lefty had everything set up in his favor. He was facing the bottom…...
