Love him or hate him, Clint Hurdle is making his Coors Field return over the weekend with the Pittsburgh Pirates. Things didn’t end well in Colorado for Hurdle. He was blamed when the Rockies stumbled out of the gate in 2008 when the Rockies were trying to prove that their run to the World Series was no fluke. When they...

One day after the Colorado Rockies ended their season by tying the worst 14-game stretch in club history. The only people in the state of Colorado that were happy with the results were the outside sales reps for Tums and Pepto-Bismol. Sales had to have been up 100 percent for Rockies fans. The nicest way to put the Rockies play...

To say this has been an emotional week for the Colorado Rockies is a vast understatement.No one thought when Ubaldo Jimenez threw the club’s first ever no-hitter that eight days later the team would be saying goodbye to their president, who by all accounts was the heart and soul of the franchise, eight days later. The club has gone from...

One of the critiques of Jim Tracy when he managed in both Los Angeles and Pittsburgh was that he micromanaged too much. Rockies fans did not really see that in 2009 after he took over for Clint Hurdle. However, that side of Tracy seems to be coming out, and many Rockies fans are already disapproving.The Colorado Rockies are 3-3. The...

Manny Corpas is a polarizing figure amongst Rockies fans. The right handed reliever has felt just about every emotion a Major League relief pitcher can feel. In his first full season in the big leagues, Corpas took over as the closer for the Rockies after Brian Fuentes stumbled. Corpas did nothing less than notch 19 saves in 20 opportunities, sporting...

On May 29th, the Colorado Rockies sat 10 games under .500, they had just been swept by the Dodgers in consecutive weekends and were playing with no heart. That day, manager Clint Hurdle was given his walking papers. Less than two years removed from captaining a young team to a surprise World Series appearance, Hurdle was no longer the manager...

The Rockies defeated the Brewers 9-2 on Thursday afternoon at Coors Field. It was a methodical offensive onslaught and the dominating pitching from resurgent and clearly healthy Aaron...

At Coors Field on Wednesday night fall was in the air. The wind blew trash around the ballpark all night long and the temperatures dipped. It was a feeling that the Rockies are looking forward to getting used to. Behind the wild, and somewhat effective Jason Hammel, the Rockies picked up their 90th victory of the season, winning 10-6, tying...

That said, Jim Tracy’s run of pushing all of the right buttons has come to an end. When Tracy took over for Clint Hurdle on May 29th, the Rockies were 12 games under .500 and 15-1/2 games...

The Colorado Rockies have played 105 games in 2009. Through 105 games all the Rockies have shown is that they are a 1/2 game better than the Giants. However, it is tough to judge the Rockies based on 105 games as a whole. The Rockies season really has to be split up into two distinct parts. The first two months,...

The greater Denver community has no clue what they have been fortunate enough to watch for the last 11 years. Todd Helton roped a pitch in the third inning down the right field line. He thought he had hit it well enough to leave the park and tie up the game. The ball ended up hitting the top of the...
