DENVER – When the St. Louis Cardinals lost early on Friday afternoon, the Colorado Rockies knew they were just one win away from clinching their first-ever back-to-back postseason appearances.

DENVER – As a near sellout crowd gathered at Coors Field to witness a postseason-level contest between the Colorado Rockies and Los Angeles Dodgers, battling for supremacy in the NL West, they instead were treated to a game mired in controversy that featured far too much of home plate umpire Andy Fletcher. His strike zone was a mess all evening…...

It had been a running theme even in the early stages of the 2018 season, when almost no transactions were made: If the Colorado Rockies were going to get to the postseason, they are going to need at least 35 of the men on the 40-man roster to help them get there. The “I-25ers” as we’ve come to call them,…...

DENVER – There may be no player in baseball who has made a more dramatic turnaround this season than Ian Desmond. The sometimes outfielder now settled in at first base struggled mightily over his first 43 games, batting just .175, though he did manage to hit seven home runs, five of which came at critical junctures in Rockies wins. Still,…...

The Colorado Rockies have been in a rut and it looked like their spiral would continue when the Texas Rangers jumped all over them and starter Chad Bettis for five runs in the first inning.

One way to mitigate the bullpen issues the Colorado Rockies have experienced lately is to score seven runs and have your starter pitch seven innings of one-run baseball. Tyler Anderson, once again, gave the ‘pen just two innings to work. And this time the lead held up for a 7-2 win over the Phillies that snapped a five-game losing streak.…...
