According to his Baseball Reference page, Colorado Rockies’ catcher Elias Díaz has one nickname: El Maracucho.

Think back to deepest and darkest recessed of your mind. Somewhere, through all the disappointment and frustration caused the 99 day lockout, there exists information about the first month of the Colorado Rockies offseason. Because of the transaction freeze, they’ll now have less than that to complete the second part of the offseason as Bud Black and his squad get…...

It may not have been a success by the standards of a 74-87 record, but there were numerous highlights and memorable moments for the Colorado Rockies in 2021. Despite exceeding expectations during a year that many suggested would result in 100 loses, the season as a whole will surely be a footnote in the 29-year history of the organization, not…...

When the lockout comes to end at some point in 2022 and Major League Baseball can have free agent signings and trades of typical offseasons past, the Colorado Rockies will need to not only improve their lineup in the power department, but will also need to add a notable name.  On Opening Day of the 2019 season, the Colorado Rockies…...

We answer these questions and look at free agent options, highlight the history of Colorado’s free agent spending and examine how that Tyler Chatwood deal – signed on this date four years…

GM Bill Schmidt does it again, locking up Elias Díaz to a three-year, $14.5 million contract that keeps the 31-year-old catcher in purple pinstripes through the 2024 season. Rumblings of Ryan McMahon at shortstop are intriguing, as are possibilities of Brendan Rodgers moving back to his natural position. One thing is for sure: there cannot be a platoon at this…

On Thursday, the Colorado Rockies announced a three-year deal with catcher Elias Díaz worth approximately $14.5 million. The 31-year-old had an incredibly productive season at the plate, slugging .464 thanks to 37 extra-base hits. His 18 home runs were the fourth-most in franchise history by a catcher. Díaz did most of his damage at the dish after mid-June, homering in…

Steve Reed represented the Colorado Rockies through their first five seasons of existence and pitched in more games than any other for the franchise, spending half his 14-year career in purple.

Since May 21, the Colorado Rockies are 55-51. Because of the screwed up economics of baseball, trying to lose is a viable strategy for at least third of the teams in MLB so it makes perfect sense that some would see this not as success but rather as a failure of another kind. After all, they aren’t making the postseason…...

The speediest player on the roster – center fielder or shortstop – has traditionally batted first. (Of course, having a player with the best on-base percentage leading off may take some precedence in the modern age of sabermetrics, but the position is…...

It was the worst of times. And then it was the best of times. In the tale of two Elias Diaz’ truer words were never spoken. Baseball is a vehicle for chaos. It is a game of slumps and streaks for every individual and every team. And yet still somehow, it is a game where everything tends to come back…...

When Dodgers’ Will Smith swung through an 0-2 knuckle curve from Cubs’ Craig Kimbrel to finish a combined no-hitter on June 25, few expected it would somehow be the beginning of the end for the North Siders.  Tied for first in the NL Central with the Milwaukee Brewers and nine-games over .500 at the end of that memorable day, Chicago…...

The Colorado Rockies got off to a good start in Seattle by comfortably taking their first game against the Mariners by a score of 8-4. For the third time in a row, Antonio Senzatela pitched very well but couldn’t quite manage that totally dominant start, allowing a couple of earned runs over six innings pitched. He gave up an early…...
