Carlos Gonzalez is heating up for the Rockies. Put this one in the file next to “pre-humidor days.” The Colorado Rockies used an 11 run 5th inning to blow passed the New York Mets who couldn’t have had any idea what hit them. The Rockies went on to defeat the Mets 18-9 in a game that looked like one played…...

Chacin has one more hurdle to jump. The Colorado Rockies played two games on Wednesday. In all, they scored three runs on eight hits. Usually, numbers like that would result in two losses. However, the Rockies found a way to win game one, thanks in large part to the legs of Eric Young, Jr. In game two, the Rockies once...

Bob Davidson made a horrible call. That is common for him. Davidson is known more for his bad attitude and hot-head rather than his good umpiring. He calls more balks than any other umpire in baseball, and is commonly referred to as the worst umpire in the game. On Friday night, immediately following a double play in which Dexter Fowler...

It wasn’t pretty, but it wasn’t too ugly either. The Colorado Rockies got their first taste of the second most prized possession that they got for their first-ever ace, Ubaldo Jimenez. Not-yet-23-year-old Alex White stepped to the mound at Coors Field with fans eager to see what this guy might be all about if he merited trading Jimenez. The results?...

Shhhhh, don’t tell the Colorado Rockies. Everyone who walked into Coors Field on Sunday knew what day of the week it was. Everyone except the team wearing purple pinstripes. Whether they were told it was Saturday, whether they were simply just due, the Rockies pulled off what has proven to be a difficult task. They won on a Sunday. After...

One step forward, two steps back. That is the story of the Colorado Rockies season. Just when things start to come together, when the team is hitting well, pitching well and playing fundamental baseball, they have to go and mess it all up. On Wednesday night in Cincinnati, the Rockies were given a lift by newly-acquired pitcher Kevin Millwood. The...

The Colorado Rockies lost on Sunday to extend their losing streak on the Sabbath to 16 straight.At this point, the reason for the continued lack of effort on Sunday’s is anyone’s guess. The fact is, the club continues to fall on the first day of the week. It would be one thing if the team faltered in a different manner...

Bless Todd Helton.On the day that he played his 2,000 career game, all in a Colorado Rockies uniform, his team did what they do best. They lost in agonizing fashion.In all 2,000 games in which Helton has played in, how many times has his team gone down in a heartbreaking fashion. The grizzly veteran has to be getting used to...

All things must come to an end. Whether it is at the end of this season, or sometime before then, Aaron Cook will end his tenure as a Colorado Rockie. However, if the Rockies have any chance at making the postseason, that difficult decision needs to be made sooner rather than later. As in, before his next start.Moves like that...

Jason Hammel is extremely familiar with the scenario. He pitches well, and his offense fails him.That was the story on Sunday, and it has been the story for Hammel since the beginning of May. Despite having an ERA below 3.50 since the beginning of the dreadful month, Hammel is 0-5 with two no-decisions.On Sunday, the right-hander took a no-hitter into...

The way that this 2011 Colorado Rockies team has played has been nothing short of insane. They struggle for five straight games, then light up one of the National League’s top pitchers so far.Most would think that some of that momentum would carry into Sunday’s action, but instead, it was back to business as usual. The Rockies offense scored three...

The excitement of the Colorado Rockies finally breaking out and putting up a big number against a good pitcher was great to see. The team needed it, the fans needed it.However, the offensive output might not be the thing that Rockies fans should be the most excited about.Juan Nicasio, one of the Rockies top prospects, was called up from Double-A...

The winter meetings are usually a pretty dull period of time for the Rockies. They are not the type of team that is going to throw around huge money to big-name free agents. That’s why it was such a big surprise when the Rockies name was linked to reports that they might be interested in the Rangers Michael Young. The...

Let’s face it. They did this to themselves.With one swing of the bat from Pat Burrell essentially ensured that the Rockies will finish no better than 3rd place in the National League West. His blast to left field gave the Giants a 2-1 lead in the 7th inning that would hold up as Tim Lincecum dominated the Rockies.Jhoulys Chacin was...

Winning 11 baseball games in a row is tough to do in little league, let alone the big leagues.On Monday night, in the biggest series of the season for the club, the Rockies dropped the opener of a three-game set to the Padres 6-4. It is tough to complain after a 10 game winning streak. However, the Rockies fell victim...

People are still into the Rockies. They shouldn’t be.Unlike years past, the talk around the water cooler is not all about the Broncos in August. People are still talking about the Rockies. Do they have a chance? Can they make a run? If they can just figure out a way to win on the road…etc, etc, etc.While many Rockies fans...
