Hello Colorado Rockies fans. I would ask how you are doing but we all know the answer to that question. Some fans may have finally found their way into some sort of optimism in this current mess but it would be more than a stretch to say anyone is happy about where this team stands. Many have already declared their fandom dead. Others have simply put it on hold. The debate rages about whether to boycott the team, what that would even truly look like, and how impactful it would be. At the center of that debate stands a difficult question that everyone has to answer for themselves; How do I root for the Rockies… without rooting for the Rockies?…

It’s not that they did it, it’s how and why. How they did it was haphazardly on a Friday night out of an offseason long cloud of darkness after already having poisoned the waters and alienated the people who’s love has long supported them. Why they did it was for money. And pride. When the Colorado Rockies – that is...

The reported trade of Nolan Arenado to the St. Louis Cardinals is hitting everyone in the Rocky Mountain in about the same way. While all the elements of the deal haven’t been finalized, the speculated details are more than enough to know this will be bad for the organization in every single way. Some positives can come from this, but it seems light years away from the present. With hundreds of angles from which this can be viewed, there will be no shortage of stories to file in the days and weeks ahead. In the wake of this monumental move will be a lot of innocent bystanders, such as current Colorado players faced with answering questions about Arenado’s departure and…

Since the end of the shortened 2020 season, it seems a lot has gone wrong for the Colorado Rockies. Following baseball’s best record (11-3) on August 8, the team crashed and burned to a second consecutive fourth-place finish in the National League West only to see their rival and bully Los Angeles Dodgers win the World Series. From there, things have not gotten better and many supporters of the club are concerned about the future of the team, especially after the events of the past few weeks. MiLB: Constant sees a change Plans for the future of Minor League Baseball took shape this week when invitations to 120 affiliates went out for all 30 Major League teams. With short-season leagues…

DNVR Rockies beat reporters Drew Creasman and Patrick Lyons battle for supremacy discussing various hot topics pertaining to the inhabitants of 2001 Blake Street as well all the scuttlebutt in and around the game of baseball. Winter is coming and never has it meant more. The Old Farmer’s Almanac hints at colder days ahead during a time of pandemic in which most people are safer indoors than outdoors, regardless of how many layers of clothes protect them from the elements. The Gospel According to Ken Rosenthal – and numerous other journalists – details a challenging position for the Players’ Association following claims of billion dollar losses by their bosses. The literal stance is for wages to be shrunk, if not…

The winter is cold. Rockieton is dark. And your heart is broken. Why even be a Colorado Rockies fan anymore? Why bother? What’s it all for? How much longer can you keep pouring so much daily emotion into something that never seems to love you back nearly as much? Memories of October baseball featuring this cast of characters might as...

Through a series of ill-conceived roster transactions since his appointment as general manager of Colorado Rockies in October of 2014, Jeff Bridich has been the person most responsible for the club now standing on the precipice of total disaster. It should have been a half-decade long window of contention. Instead, we have this. Bridich should get credit for having overseen...

DNVR Rockies beat reporters Drew Creasman and Patrick Lyons battle for supremacy discussing various hot topics pertaining to the inhabitants of 2001 Blake Street as well all the scuttlebutt in and around the game of baseball. After a strange 60-game regular season and even weirder 16-team playoff format set in  neutral site locations, Major League Baseball did the improbable and completed the “championship season” without any considerable impediments. Baseball will hope for a return to normalcy next season, but that simply isn’t possible until a post-pandemic world. As such, this offseason will be true Rorschach Test for understanding the future of the game. With the end looming for the current collective bargaining agreement following the 2021 season, it remains to…
