Charlie Culberson was the hero on Saturday night. It was a flashback to Coors Field before Y2K. A night of excitement was capped off with a walk-off home run, courtesy of pinch hitter Charlie Culberson. The utility infielder was hitting just .109 when he stepped to the plate with one out and Troy Tulowitzki at second base and the Rockies…...

Franklin Morales has been better than anyone expected for the Rockies. There is a reason why Franklin Morales was one of the first pitchers taken in your fantasy baseball draft during spring training. Oh wait. He wasn’t? No one took him at all? Oh yeah. Everyone expected him to be in the bullpen with an ERA hovering around 5.50 for...

Franklin Morales was great on Thursday. It wasn’t the typical gem, but it still qualifies as one. With the eyes of the Denver sports world waiting for the Avalanche’s incredible come from behind win, Franklin Morales was quietly stating his case for a permanent spot in the Colorado Rockies starting rotation. For some reason, when Morales pitches, the sense of...

Wilton Lopez was brutal on Tuesday. The question has already been asked, who are the 2014 Colorado Rockies? Is this team the one that showed up on Friday for the home opener and played a complete, fundamental game, which included good starting pitching and great hitting? On the other side, is this team the one the looked terrible on Opening...

Eddie Butler is one reason for Rockies fans to be excited. Hope springs eternal. Something about those words gives fans of the 29 teams that didn’t win the World Series a reason to be excited every February.

Franklin Morales will be back in purple pinstripes in 2014. Dealin’ Dan is back in action. Colorado Rockies general manager Dan O’Dowd earned the nickname perhaps infamously back in 1999 when he took the reins of the club and almost immediately traded seemingly half of the roster. On Wednesday O’Dowd and Bill Geivett continued what has been an extremely busy...

It’s time to get the youth some experience in 2012. The Memorial Day doubleheader sweep of the Houston Astros by the Colorado Rockies gave the few remaining believers hope. In reality, however, this team has dug itself such a huge hole that the dream of climbing out of it and back into contention is extremely unrealistic. Crazy things happen sometimes,...

The “it’s still early” excuse is starting to get old. As the beginning of May becomes the middle of May and as the Colorado Rockies continue to struggle to find ways to win ballgames, the only thing that the Rockies are doing early is playing their way out of first place.The club got out to a fast start, inspiring bandwagon...

This isn’t why it was important to start off hot in April. The reason wasn’t so that the team could blow that lead in May.The offense clearly is struggling, and is the predominant reason for the lack of production leading to losses. However, in spite of a lackluster offense, the team has been in games, hence three-straight walk-off losses. The...

Little did anyone know that this day would eventually come. In the early 2000’s the Rockies were a perennial 90 game loser. They were the laughing stock of baseball, the Kansas City Royals of the National League. They were a team that looked as if they were headed nowhere. Bogged down by huge contracts given to players who never panned...
