The Rockies lost another one thanks to Jim Tracy. It has become an extremely common occurrence. In the top of the 7th inning, in a 2-1 game, Jim Tracy elected to allow pitcher Alex White to lead off the frame. White was pitching well in his 2012 debut. He had given Tracy six strong innings and kept his team in...

It’s time to make tough decisions with the pitching staff. The Colorado Rockies, for the second day in a row, blew a six run lead which ended in a loss against the Atlanta Braves. There are 162 games in a baseball season. By all accounts, that is a long year. Sometimes players go through the motions, sometimes managers go through…...

Esmil Rogers delivers a pitch to Matt Kemp. There wasn’t a Rockies fan who didn’t cringe when Esmil Rogers trotted to the mound after Juan Nicasio allowed the first two men to reach in the top of the 7th inning. With the bullpen weathered from short starts and an extra innings game on Sunday, Jim Tracy had little choice but…...

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…...

Lots of Monday Morning Quarterbacking with Jim Tracy It’s easy to play Monday morning quarterback. It’s easy to question every move a manager makes after the fact. As the saying goes, hindsight is 20/20. The best managers in the world are fans who complain about what the manager did after the move he made failed. It’s not an easy job,…...

A day after Jamie Moyer made history on the mound at Coors Field, Juan Nicasio accomplished something that should be getting just as much attention as Moyer’s accomplishment. Juan Nicasio is a key cog to the Rockies success. Nicasio, still just eight months removed from breaking his C1 vertebrae after getting struck by a line drive, was brilliant for the…...

Helton hit the game winning double. It was vintage Todd Helton. Those who had the nerve to be a Colorado Rockies fan in the early 2000’s know. Those who could stomach the losing and the consistent poor play from the Rockies in the early part of the decade know. When the rest of the Rockies were rebuilding, Todd Helton was…...

The Colorado Rockies are in the midst of a disappointing season. There is no way around that. They have been a disappointment in every aspect of the game. The team has to look into the future. If the 2011 season is a failure, the only option is to plug away and make themselves better for next year. Part of that…...

Esmil Rogers has a point to prove. The right-hander turns 26 in a couple of weeks and realizes that with every year his window of opportunity slowly closes. His chance to prove himself in the rotation comes with the departure of Ubaldo Jimenez.Ironically, the Ubaldo Jimenez’s move to Cleveland gives Rogers his chance, but also comes as his biggest threat,…...

The Colorado Rockies just finished their best April in club history. At 17-9, they hold a four game lead over the second place Dodgers, and a five game lead over the third place Giants.Despite their fast start, something that has eluded them since the club has established themselves as contenders, the Rockies cannot afford to get complacent now.At some point…...

It’s been a cold April for the Rockies, but there isn’t a soul in the clubhouse complaining about it.The Rockies, with the exception of a weekend series in Miami, have had terrible luck with the weather in the early part of the 2011 season. If playing in cold weather is all it took to snap a four-year April slump, the…...

Despite their 7-1 road record, it is easy for the Colorado Rockies to find critics.In one road trip, the Rockies have already done more on the road then they did it 2010. They found a way to win in both Pittsburgh and New York, two places that have given them fits in years past, for whatever reason.The Rockies were one…...

Sometimes you just tip your cap and move on.Tim Lincecum took a no-hitter into the 7th inning before Carlos Gonzalez laced a single into right field. After Todd Helton doubled down the right field line, Lincecum’s bid for a shutout ended as well.In the end, the Rockies lost the opener of a three-game series 8-1 to the Giants.For all of…...

There was no doubt that the Colorado Rockies would be loaded on offense. The questions coming into the season were on the pitching side.Sure, Ubaldo Jimenez is a great pitcher and Jorge De La Rosa was one of the most coveted left-handers on the market behind Cliff Lee, but who else would the Rockies turn to to help them nail…...

Heading into the spring, the Rockies were saying that their rotation was already decided. Ubaldo Jimenez, Jorge De La Rosa, Jhoulys Chacin, Jason Hammel, and Aaron Cook had the five spots locked up.However, fans have to wonder if the club was quietly running a try-out for the fifth spot. It wouldn’t have been a surprise after Cook has struggled since…...

Hindsight is 20/20.It is easy to second guess a managers decisions, but Jim Tracy makes it easy. The problem with being stubborn is that you are too stubborn to learn from your mistakes.From the looks of it, Tracy doesn’t realize that a run counts the same whether it is scored in the 1st inning, 4th inning, or 9th inning. He…...

For eight innings it looked like the same old story was writing itself. “Rockies fall flat on the road,” “Rockies leave bats at Coors Field…again.”Carlos Gonzalez, however, changed that headline to something that hasn’t been seen in the 2010 season. “Rockies come from behind in 9th inning.”Gonzalez, named the National League Player of the Week earlier in the day, shattered…...

Heading into the 4th inning the question was not whether or not the Rockies could come back, it was which position player would end up on the mound.The Rockies defied the odds, something that they hope is a theme this season, and rallied from nine runs down to defeat the Braves 12-10 at Coors Field on a beautiful summer afternoon.With…...

The Colorado Rockies went into Pittsburgh desperate to prove that they could win away from Coors Field. The last time out on the road the club dropped nine out of 11 games. After three games against the Pirates, the Rockies were on the brink of losing 3-of-4 to the worst team in the National League. Luckily for the Rockies, the…...
