Rockies fans want to send star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki to the All-Star game being played in Cincinnati on July 14th. His fate is currently being decided by a fan vote but there may be more at stake than just another rote appearance by the four-time All-Star. Tulowitzki has had a pretty decent year and it’s been far better than the disabled list…...

It happened again on Sunday, the Denver Post pumped out another story by Woody Paige about the terrible, no good, awful Colorado Rockies. It was as predictable as it was annoying. It also reminded us of one thing; Woody Paige is completely irrelevant when it comes to baseball. Paige, as he stumbled and bumbled his way through a standard diatribe,...

Dick Monfort is the real problem for the Colorado Rockies. Dreams do come true. However, as is the case with Colorado Rockies fans, those dreams don’t always play out the way they were originally thought up. On Wednesday morning, Rockies fans were jolted out of their sleep by text messages from friends announcing that Christmas had come early. The Rockies...

Playing out the string isn’t too much fun to watch. On Tuesday night it was the Pittsburgh Pirates, a few nights before it was the Angels. Tomorrow night could be the Dodgers turn. Meanwhile, the Colorado Rockies finished a 3-1/2 hour game in San Diego that literally means nothing. It would have been a nail biter–if anyone still cared. Instead,...

Dick Monfort simply doesn’t get it. Dick Monfort is fiercely loyal. Nearly everyone agrees on that. That is what everyone says about the Colorado Rockies owner. That is why he hasn’t done what the owners of 27 other teams have done, some several times, since he hired Dan O’Dowd to be the general manager of the Rockies. Since 1999, when...

The Rockies can’t help themselves. It wasn’t a sweet sixteen for the Colorado Rockies on Sunday. A six-game road trip against a bad New York Mets team and a very good St. Louis Cardinals team completed on Sunday with the Rockies returning to Denver without a single win. That team plane will land back in Denver without a single addition...

Dick Monfort needs to feel the heat all winter long. When Wilin Rosario grounded out to shortstop to end the game and the Colorado Rockies late rally on Tuesday night, something became official that was bound to happen for months. The Rockies were officially eliminated from playoff contention. Most would have believed that the club was eliminated sometime back in...

Jordan Lyles pitched decent, but was left in the game too long. What is left to be said? The Colorado Rockies are the only team in baseball that goes up 7-1 and their fans feel like it won’t be enough. The fans are rooting for the starter to work deep into the 7th inning, just so the terrible bullpen doesn’t...

Tommy Kahnle struggled on Tuesday night. There is only one guy left to be convinced, but that guy is the only one that counts. After another brutal loss in extra innings to a terrible Chicago Cubs team, the Colorado Rockies are in a bad spot. Not only are they dead last in the National League West, they are hopeless. This...

Bill Geivett probably isn’t thrilled to find out he is taking the blame. Remember Memorial Day? It seems like a long time ago, right? It was May 26th, and while the Colorado Rockies struggles had already begun, few had any idea how bad it would get. Since Memorial Day, the holiday that was over two full months ago, the Rockies...

The Rockies should have dealt LaTroy Hawkins. “If it is broken beyond repair, don’t fix it.” Those were the words of Dan Fellman, producer of seemingly every show on Mile High Sports Radio, on Thursday afternoon when talking about the Colorado Rockies lack of a move at the trade deadline in a season going down the toilet. On their way...

Brett Anderson was brilliant on Wednesday night. Give credit where credit is due. The Colorado Rockies have been horrible, but they would have been much better had it not been for the fluke injury that Brett Anderson sustained in April, shelving him for the remainder of the first half of the season. While Anderson has a multi-page injury history, it...

Chad Bettis has been destroyed by the Rockies. There are 53 mountains in Colorado that are over 14,000 feet. On July 22nd, after another blown lead by the bullpen, it feels as if the Colorado Rockies have been on a 14,000 foot slide down the standings. After Tuesday night’s loss, the club has lost 24-of their last-28 games. In 2007,...

Dick Monfort If one thing is certain, it is that the Colorado Rockies don’t like bad publicity. They get upset when sports talk radio shows rip on them, and they don’t like it when the Denver Post says anything negative. That was the main reason why I wrote about an initiative that might have a sliver of a chance of...

Dick Monfort often gets labeled as extremely loyal. Stubbornness is often mislabeled as loyalty. Let’s get something straight, Dick Monfort may be the most loyal person on the face of the earth, but what is going on with the Colorado Rockies owner has nothing to do with loyalty, it has everything to do with stubbornness. Throughout the P.R. disaster that...
