Nolan Arenado is good at baseball. There. It’s been said. Following his well-earned eight-year, $260M contract extension in the offseason, the five-time All-Star picked up where he left off to begin the 2019 season. Arenado aided Colorado’s 5-0 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates and starter Chris Archer with two singles that begin a streak of seven consecutive multi-hit games, the fourth…

DENVER – Author Thomas Wolfe surmised, “you can’t go home again” in his 1940 posthumous novel of the same name. Matt Holliday and the Colorado Rockies don’t care much for that idiom. After nine years away from the Colorado Rockies with stops in Oakland, St. Louis and New York, Holliday has returned to Colorado, his home for the first five…...

The Colorado Rockies have certainly had their share of players that you forgot donned the purple pinstripes.

This is what the Rockies have successfully made fans care about. Admit it, you don’t really care anymore. What used to anger fans of the Colorado Rockies rarely causes so much as a shrug of the shoulders anymore. What used to be appointment television, where a fan would set his or her day around watching the Rockies game has turned…...

The Rockies are going back to a 5-man rotation. With a chance to win a series in San Diego on Saturday night, the Colorado Rockies couldn’t get the job done, dropping the nearly meaningless game 4-3. Drew Pomeranz continues his search for economical pitching, going just three innings and delivering 67 total pitches. The news for most of the Rockies…...

Jeff Francis made his return on Saturday. Saturday’s matinee at Coors Field was a micro chasm of the entire 2012 season as the Colorado Rockies lost to the Los Angeles Angels 11-5. The game represented exactly what the Rockies approach going into the season was. Basically what that amounts to is cross your fingers and hope everything goes perfectly. The...

It might be time to pull the plug on Jeremy Guthrie. For the third straight game, the story for the Colorado Rockies is their starting pitcher. Tuesday night’s story, however, tells quite the opposite tale. In Phoenix, Jeremy Guthrie was hit hard by the Diamondbacks, giving up seven earned runs on 11 hits in just 3-1/3 innings. The Rockies went…...

An inspiring story, but it’s time to move on from Jamie Moyer. Nine home runs were hit on Sunday at Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati. Five of them were by the Colorado Rockies. In a slug fest, the Rockies found themselves on the short end, losing 7-5 to close out a six-game road trip at 2-4. The Reds showed exactly...

Jim Tracy has looked confused by his team’s play often in 2012. What is left to say about these Colorado Rockies? They are running out of ways to lose baseball games. After being spotted a four-run lead in the 1st inning, Jamie Moyer couldn’t pitch well enough to hold the Marlins at bay. His final batter, Giancarlo Stanton, blasted a…...

Jamie Moyer pitched and hit the Rockies to victory. If the Colorado Rockies have any hope whatsoever, they have to have strong pitching performances from their starting rotation. They got that from their oldest pitcher on Wednesday night at Coors Field. The Rockies emerged victorious against the Diamondbacks, winning in convincing fashion, 6-1. After a disappointing road trip that has…...

Is the Jamie Moyer experiment about to come to an end? Same story, different year. If you’ve seen one Colorado Rockies game at Dodger Stadium over the years, you’ve seen them all. The script usually remains the same. The Dodgers score a run or two early, while the Rockies get a few hits in the early going. It seems like...

It’s time to make tough decisions with the pitching staff. The Colorado Rockies, for the second day in a row, blew a six run lead which ended in a loss against the Atlanta Braves. There are 162 games in a baseball season. By all accounts, that is a long year. Sometimes players go through the motions, sometimes managers go through…...

Guillermo Moscoso couldn’t hold a 5-0 lead on Friday. It has become a recurring theme for the Colorado Rockies in 2012. On Friday night, after being staked to a 5-0 lead against Tim Hudson and the Atlanta Braves, Rockies starter Guillermo Moscoso couldn’t throw do enough to hold the Rockies lead. In fact, he couldn’t do enough to make it…...

Michael Cuddyer has been a huge part of the Rockies success. The Colorado Rockies went to Scottsdale, AZ with high hopes in February. However, those associated with the team were probably the only ones who gave them a fighting chance. It was tough to blame the the fans for being a little cynical. After all, it was just one year...

Guillermo Moscoso gave the Rockies what they should have expected. The Colorado Rockies learned the lesson the hard way on Saturday night that add-on runs can really add up. Immediately following a three run 4th inning, Rockies starter Guillerrmo Moscoso gave up three runs of his own in the top of the 5th inning. The three runs came with two…...

A day after Jamie Moyer made history on the mound at Coors Field, Juan Nicasio accomplished something that should be getting just as much attention as Moyer’s accomplishment. Juan Nicasio is a key cog to the Rockies success. Nicasio, still just eight months removed from breaking his C1 vertebrae after getting struck by a line drive, was brilliant for the…...

Jamie Moyer became the oldest pitcher to ever record a win. It was a joke to many around baseball, and a rallying cry to many cynical Colorado Rockies fans. Jamie Moyer, approaching his 50th birthday, made the starting rotation out of spring training. Fans around the league mocked the Rockies for trying to get fans to come out to the…...

Don’t blame Jamie Moyer for Thursday’s Rockies loss. One more base hit, or more good swing, and the Colorado Rockies might have been winners on Thursday afternoon. Despite being no-hit into the 7th inning by Madison Bumgarner, the Rockies were one swing away from tying the game in the bottom of the 9th inning. The Rockies found a way to…...

Jamie Moyer gave up four runs in five innings. Let the doubting commence. Is he too old? Are the Colorado Rockies too cheap? How can they run out a team that features a 49-year old? Those are all questions that the pessimists will begin with as the debate their fellow Rockies fans on Sunday. They will say that this crazy...
