Happy Anniversary, Rockies fans. Sort of.  Excluding the mammoth trade of Troy Tulowitzki in 2015, a deal that saved the franchise $50 million in the process, the last deadline deal Colorado made in a losing season was on this date in 2012.  At 23 games under .500, 16.5 games behind the newly-implemented second Wild Card and three years removed from…...

Could the Rockies be good in 2015? Something that many people don’t know about a Colorado Rockies blogger is that they simply cannot win. That has nothing to do with the baseball team. It has everything to do with what gets written. Trust me. Write something about how the Rockies could be good, or how a player is destined for…...

Franklin Morales couldn’t help the Rockies score runs on Saturday. Every game counts. Baseball purists will talk about how important every game is in a 162 game season. They will point to several seasons in which it came down to the final game, and even on occasion the 163rd game in order to sort it all out. Don’t tell a…...

Wait, the Colorado Rockies three-game sweep of the San Diego Padres isn’t the lead for all of the local late night newscasts? There must have been something else going on in town that overshadowed the Rockies. While the Broncos were destroying the Colts, then watching them claw their way back into the game, the Rockies were heading to the airport…...

Boone Logan had another horrible night for the Rockies. A bunch of Luke Skywalker’s and Darth Vader’s went home bitter on Friday night. While the Colorado Rockies seemed happy to sell extra tickets using a Star Wars Night gimmick, the play on the field looked all too familiar. After a lackluster performance on the mound from starter Franklin Morales, the…...

Time for Dan O’Dowd to be thrown off of the ship. Fire up the bus, the Colorado Rockies excuse tour is about to begin again. Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post continues his beatdown of the Rockies front office in several pieces over the past few weeks. However, he highlighted exactly where the frustration arises from Rockies fans in his…...

Tyler Matzek was better than his line suggested on Monday. Apparently Major League Baseball likes to torture Colorado Rockies fans. Down 6-1 with no chance to catch up to the lowly San Diego Padres at Coors Field on Monday, the rains came down and it looked like fans might be spared the torture of watching the final two innings of…...

Arenado’s return to the lineup wasn’t enough for the Rockies. By: CAMERON PARSONS (@acmwin20 on Twitter) The Rockies star third baseman, Nolan Arenado, returned to the lineup on Thursday night, but his return proved to be not enough for Colorado as they dropped their fourth game in a row. From the very beginning, this game did not look good for…...

Dan O’Dowd should be selling used cars. Dan O’Dowd might be the best salesperson in the state of Colorado. Why? Because many of the most ardent fans of the Colorado Rockies aren’t just trusting him, they are buying everything he says hook, line and sinker. Open up a new tab in the browser and take a look over on Twitter.…...

It was Justin Morneau’s turn to provide the heroics on Sunday. Even the most optimistic of Colorado Rockies fans weren’t expecting this. Not only did the Rockies finish off the three-game sweep of the San Francisco Giants on the road on Sunday, they completed the trifecta of coming back from behind in all three games, winning them in impressive fashion.…...

Juan Nicasio isn’t a starter. He belongs in the bullpen. As bad as the Colorado Rockies nine game road trip was, the first three games of their 10-game homestand might be worse. Thursday night’s 12-7 debacle underscores exactly why this team doesn’t have the means to make a run. It highlights all of the weaknesses that this team has and…...

Rockies fans want the old Rex Brothers back. Forget it, pack it in, the Colorado Rockies are done. Too harsh? Prove me wrong. I’d love to see someone give a solid reason as to why this Rockies team has a fighting chance to crawl back into the race. Sure, they are just two games under .500 after the latest disaster,…...

Eddie Butler finally got the call. He starts on Friday for the Rockies. The Colorado Rockies front office is painfully patient. That should give a pretty good idea as to how important this homestand is for the Rockies. With the season hanging in the balance, and the clock on the Franklin Morales experiment coming to an end, the Rockies front…...

It’s time to see what Tyler Matzek can do in the big leagues. Paging Jhoulys Chacin. Mr. Chacin, please pick up a white courtesy telephone. On Sunday, in what might go down as the worst road trip in Colorado Rockies history (and that is saying something), the Rockies supposed ace looked like the kid on your 11-year-old team who forgot…...

It’s time for the Rockies to take Franklin Morales out of the rotation. This was their litmus test. This was their chance to show that they were different than in years past. This was the opportunity the Colorado Rockies had to prove the last of their doubters wrong. Instead, they emptied out the bandwagon and got everyone’s minds focused on…...

Franklin Morales was in for a tough matchup on Sunday. Even the greatest of optimists couldn’t have realistically expected much different results from the Colorado Rockies on Sunday. The Rockies sent Franklin Morales to the mound in an effort to win the series in Atlanta. He was facing Braves right-hander Julio Teheran. The simple reality is that the pitching matchup…...

The Rockies need a big start from Jordan Lyles on Friday. The rain, hail, wind and nearly every other imaginable weather pattern put a damper on the rubber match of a three-game series that was supposed to tell us who the Colorado Rockies are. After a great finish on Tuesday night, then sleep-walking through Wednesday’s game, Thursday was going to…...

Franklin Morales isn’t the solution for the Rockies rotation. If the Colorado Rockies are going to make a playoff run in 2014, Franklin Morales can’t be a part of their starting rotation. It is easy to complain about a fifth starter. Every team in baseball would like to improve the back end of their starting rotation. There is a reason…...

Nolan Arenado now has the longest hitting streak in Rockies history. The schedule makers didn’t really do the Colorado Rockies any favors. They play 42 games in the first 44 days of the season. At the back end of that stretch, the Rockies may have shown their fatigue on Thursday. A 5-0 loss in which the Rockies couldn’t get the…...

The Rockies have been exciting in 2014. Put down the purple Kool-Aid. Just for one minute. When Charlie Culberson laced the Kyle Farnsworth pitch over the center field wall at Coors Field on Saturday night, it brought back a feeling fans of the Colorado Rockies haven’t had for a while. Sure, the Rockies had a fun April in 2013. They…...
