Antonio Senzatela has come a long way since signing as a 16-year-old out of Venezuela, both literally and figuratively. After an injury-plagued season at Double-A in 2016, Senzatela made the Opening Day roster in 2017 with a mere seven starts about Class High-A. The 22-year-old tossed five shutout innings in his big league debut to begin the season in Milwaukee before coming home to Colorado to make his first start at Coors Field. Manuel Margot tagged a leadoff home run to put the Padres ahead early. That may have been the best thing to happen to Senze as he went on to surrender only four more hits and one run across seven strong innings. In the process, Senzatela earned his…

On Opening Day 2016, Colorado traveled to Arizona to pit their shiny new toys against one another. During the offseason, Zack Greinke opted out of a three-year, $71M pact ($23.7M average annual salary) with the Los Angeles Dodgers only to stick around in the NL West and sign with the Diamondbacks on a six-year, $206.5M pact ($34.4M average annual salary). For the Rockies, their new toy came from drastically different circumstances. After trading Troy Tulowitzki during the 2015 season, José Reyes became the de facto starting shortstop with two-years and approximately $50M remaining on his deal. That offseason, Reyes was involved in a violation of MLB’s domestic abuse policy and suspended for the first 51 games of the 2016 season.…

DENVER – The result of every Colorado Rockies game counts… until it doesn’t. Unfortunately, plenty of fans and analysts around the game seem yet undecided on this issues. Sure, there has been no effort to move the club (thank God) but the folks in charge of talking on TV and/or voting for awards to celebrate the very best our sport has to offer, use Coors Field as an excuse to underrate players in purple so often that one has to wonder if they just don’t think baseball here is legitimate. Ironically, this attitude has percolated so resoundingly that some of the most elite talents in the game have been completely overlooked despite having to deal with a dynamic that…

The torch of the Colorado Rockies has officially been passed. Dante Bichette passed the torch to Larry Walker, Larry Walker passed the torch to Todd Helton, Todd Helton passed it to Troy Tulowitzki, and as the 2015 season comes to a close, it can be officially stated that Nolan Arenado has picked up the torch that Tulowitzki left on the...

Time flies. Sunday marked the 20-year anniversary of Dante Bichette drilling a no-doubt home run to left-center field, christening Coors Field in the 14th inning and setting the stage for so many more wild and crazy games at Coors Field for years to come. It doesn’t seem that long ago. Later that same year, the Rockies, just three years old,...

From the beginning, the Rockies have always done Opening Day right. As the Colorado Rockies come back to Coors Field with a perfect record, the excitement is in the air for the franchise and their fans. Of course, 3-0 isn’t anything to be overly excited about, but even if the Rockies were 0-3, the first game of the season in...

Inexcusable. The Colorado Rockies, fresh off of a hard fought series with the reigning World Champions, showed up to the Minute Maid Park in Houston on Monday and dismantled all of the goodwill they had bought for themselves in the weekend series against the Giants. The Rockies, once again, scored early. They plated one run in the 1st inning behind...

Since their inception in 1993 the Colorado Rockies have had several types of teams. They have had the big home run hitters known as the Blake Street Bombers, they have had teams with speed, they have had teams with big name free agents, and teams with other franchise’s cast offs. Yet, they have all had one thing in common. None...
