The Colorado Rockies highly-vaunted Super Bullpen was an absolute unmitigated disaster… right? Of course it was. You’ve heard the stat. You’ve seen the stat. You lived the damn stat. The club spent $106 million on Jake McGee, Bryan Shaw, and Wade Davis who, in return, put up a combined -0.4 bWAR over three seasons. The trio were cut without lasting…...

Parting isn’t always such sweet sorrow. While it can always be tough on a personal level whenever someone leaves an organization, especially one as tight-knit as the Colorado Rockies, there is no question that from a professional perspective the release of Jake McGee and Bryan Shaw comes as welcome news to fans. Both were signed to three-year, $27 million contracts...

It may be the eighth game of Spring Training already, but some Rockies pitchers are just starting to shake off the winter rust and get into Cactus League games. German Márquez, Wade Davis, Jake McGee and Scott Oberg made their 2020 premier on Sunday at Salt River Fields in a 6-3 victory over the Los Angeles Angels. Márquez was fantastic over three innings, becoming only the second Colorado pitcher to last as long following Antonio Senzatela’s Friday start and the first to do it in scoreless fashion. After getting the vote of confidence from manager Bud Black as the team’s closer, Wade Davis tossed a one-two-three frame, striking out one – Angels’ top prospect Jo Adell – in the process.…

Much debate this offseason about the Colorado Rockies biggest needs this offseason. After a year in which so many things went so awry, it’s understandable for the club that went 71-91. It also underlines the fact that they also have more potential spread across the roster than some are willing to give them credit for. But potential is always trapped in the future. It has been suggested that the Rockies must prioritize adding a catcher and seeking improvements at starting pitcher and possibly center field, all of which make sense in a vacuum, but less so in context. If one was inclined to generalize, the easy answer is to say that the area in which Colorado most needs an upgrade…

At 50-58 entering Wednesday’s 2pm MST trade deadline, the Colorado Rockies and their General Manager Jeff Bridich could not plausibly justify adding to an underperforming, yet solid roster. Bridich was able to swing two trades, both of which were not on anyone’s radar nor will have any major impact on the 2019 season. In more of a seller’s mode, the...

DENVER – Daniel Murphy hasn’t had the beginning to his Colorado Rockies career that he wanted. Playing just a few games before breaking his finger and missing nearly a month, he was one of the few members of the lineup who came into Thursday afternoon’s game without at least decent hitting numbers. But he got the Rockies on the board...

Scottsdale, AZ – With the bridge between the bullpen at large and Rockies’ closer Wade Davis in question after Adam Ottavino’s signing with the New York Yankees, several candidates have emerged as favorites to hold down the eighth inning. Reliever Seunghwan Oh, acquired in late July for first baseman Chad Spanberger, outfielder Forrest Wall and reliever Bryan Baker, posted a WAR (Baseball Reference) of 2.3 or higher and an earned run average of 2.63 or lower for a second time in three seasons. Alongside Scott Oberg, whose career year in 2018 saw the 28-year-old best Oh across the board in most categories, veterans and bounceback candidates Bryan Shaw and Jake McGee, the 36-year-old righty from South Korea is one of…

DENVER – It won’t come as a shock to any regular viewers of Colorado Rockies baseball that seven of their last 10 losses have come—broadly speaking—at the hands of bullpens implosions. In each of those games, the Rockies held a lead going into the sixth inning or later. No man has been free from the struggle, with normally reliable closer...

DENVER – It wasn’t just rain drops falling from the sky at Coors Field on Friday night. More baseballs might have found the outfield grass than the light drizzle that accompanied the second half of the 11-10 slugfest. As both teams posted season highs in hits, the Colorado Rockies tried to get back in the win column in game two...

Looks like someone gave the new Chase Field humidor a healthy kick before game three of the season-opening series between the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks. After a suboptimal 0-2 start to 2018, the Rockies looked to salvage anything from their opening series on Saturday night. In a much more offensively-suppressed game than the previous two, Charlie Blackmon accounted for...

A tale of two Winter Meetings experiences should have Colorado Rockies fans feeling confident about their team’s outlook for 2018. While the Rockies were busy building a dominant bullpen, committing upward of $50 million on Bryan Shaw and Jake McGee in addition to producing what Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports called a ‘nice’ offer to Greg Holland, their National League...
