Since the year 2000, nearly three times as many MLB players have come from the Los Angeles metro area than any other city in the world.

Following a three-game sweep from a historically bad Cincinnati Reds team last weekend, the Tuesday night loss to the Washington Nationals revealed some skeptical looks from the faces of Colorado Rockies’ fans. With wins in the next two games thanks to a strong pitching performance by Austin Gomber and another multi-hit outing from Brendan Rodgers, the smiles returned. At 15-10…...

Colton Welker was poised to start 2022 with a bang after his first normal offseason in nearly three years.  Then, life happened in the form of a bacterial virus in his right eye that sidelined him through the final week of Spring Training. “I was definitely bummed, but it’s just the hand I was dealt,” Welker said of his time…...

Entering phase two of the offseason following the end of the lockout on March 10, it appeared that the Colorado Rockies might go into Opening Day with several positional battles. Center field was wide open, as was the role of the team’s closer. Left field had a similar feel to it, unless Connor Joe wasn’t convincing enough during his 211…...

The delayed start of Spring Training due to the 99-day lockout means preparation time for the 162-game season has been halved.  Most around the Colorado Rockies camp aren’t overly concerned about the change in timeline, especially manager Bud Black.  “Starting pitching is, for me, the requirement for the six weeks to really feel good about the stamina – the volume…...

Spring Training may be delayed, but that hasn’t stopped Evan Lang from cranking out great content on Rockies’ great utility men like Terry Shumpert and Garrett Hampson.

The 36-year-old was entering his final year of club control and the deal will keep him decked in purple…...
