The Colorado Rockies record has ended up with a bad case of dyslexia. At the beginning of the season, very few experts would have predicted that the Rockies would be closing in on 90 losses. Most would have thought that it would be the other way around, that the Rockies would be gunning for win number 90 at this point...

Don’t expect him to be an ace. Don’t expect him to be dominant. Don’t expect awe inspiring pitching. Do expect Kevin Millwood to be the Colorado Rockies fifth starter in 2012. After another extremely impressive start from the veteran, the Rockies should have seen enough of him to know that he still has what it takes to be in a...

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...

The Colorado Rockies made a statement to the clubhouse by trading Ubaldo Jimenez. That statement may have fallen on deaf ears. After a changing-of-the-guard type of start from Jhoulys Chacin, who pitched 7-2/3 innings, giving up six hits and just one run, Huston Street made his defenders look dumb. After constantly playing with fire, Street blew his third save of...

The thought was the age-old baseball theory that a right-handed batter hits a...

The All-Star break is three days long, apparently one day too short for the Colorado Rockies offense.With their ace on the mound, and a chance to go into the All-Star break with a sweep that would erase the bad taste of getting broomed in Atlanta, the Rockies failed to show up offensively. Apparently, Jhoulys Chacin didn’t get that message. He...
