The Rockies should be very hesitant to trade this guy away. Trade season is here and the Colorado Rockies are sellers. There is no doubt about that. The team has already dealt Jeremy Guthrie and Marco Scutaro, two veterans brought in to stabilize the clubhouse. Next in line would be Ramon Hernandez, and Jason Giambi if he wasn’t on the…...

That might change if the Rockies keep the same pace in the second half that they have been on in the first. Dropping the Independence Day game 4-1…...

One night after Jason Giambi delivered a walk-off, no doubt home run to right field, manager Jim Tracy decided to play that card again. This time, however, Tracy forgot that the club was down by three runs when Giambi stepped to the plate instead of Chris Iannetta in the bottom of the ninth inning. The logic of the move is…...

That was different. A wild ninth inning, highlighted by Dexter Fowler nearly running into an out, followed by Carlos Gonzalez hitting the ball as hard as humanly possibly, followed by an intentional walk to Troy Tulowitzki, led the Colorado Rockies to Jason Giambi’s turn in the lineup. After fouling off two pitches, Giambi launched a no-doubter to right field, giving…...

One month ago, this would have been a blowout.Instead, the Colorado Rockies rallied from a 4-1 deficit to beat the Cleveland Indians 8-7 at Progressive Field. With two outs in fifth inning, Chris Iannetta harmlessly walked to turn the lineup over. Then Carlos Gonzalez singled, and Chris Nelson followed with a two-strike single up the middle.
