It is no secret. Everyone who watches the Rockies consistently knows it. There is no way around it. Aaron Cook is awful.Despite the obvious on the mound, the Rockies continue to put Aaron Cook on the mound every fifth game. On Tuesday night the club paid the price again, losing to the Giants 10-0. Cook gave up four runs in…...

Mark Kiszla is at it again.The Denver Post columnist continues to show why the print media industry is failing. They employ too many columnists who follow a team only long enough to put the franchise’s head in a guillotine. They rile up the passive fans and it sells a few more newspapers, but credibility is lost with fans who pay…...

For the second time this season, the Rockies made Tim Lincecum, the two-time defending Cy Young winner, look like just another pitcher. This time, 22-year old Jhoulys Chacin kept the Rockies in the game long enough to win 6-3.Chacin shook off a two-run first inning in which Aubrey Huff hit a long home run to right field. He held the…...

A three game series victory against the Red Sox had the Rockies and their fans invigorated. Finally this team had learned to battle back and find a way to win a game in the late innings.Three days later the Rockies were back to their usual sloppy play, losing 10-3 to the Angels in Anaheim.Once again, the victim was rookie pitcher…...

The atmosphere felt like October, the weather felt like the beginning of summer.The Rockies, behind a shiny performance from 22-year old Jhoulys Chacin, defeated the Boston Red Sox 2-1 at Coors Field on Tuesday in the opening of a three game series.After the game, outfielder Ryan Spilborghs called the stadium “Fenway West” because of the large number of Red Sox…...

This is beyond ridiculous. The Rockies dropped another one run game, 2-1 getting dominated by yet another above-average-but-not-an-all-star pitcher. This time it was it was Twins pitcher Scott Baker who baffled them. Before Baker had pitched the minimum five innings required to pick up the win he had already tied his career high for strikeouts with 10.When it is May…...

Name the second highest paid player on the Colorado Rockies.The answer is not Troy Tulowitzki. It’s not Ubaldo Jimenez. It’s not Huston Street or Miguel Olivo or Carlos Gonzalez. The answer is Aaron Cook.Cook is making $9.833 million in 2010 and the Rockies are on the hook for $10.083 million in 2011 and a half million dollar buyout in 2012.…...

Sometimes there is a silver lining. Losing three-out-of-four to the second worst team in the National League seems like it would be horrible. Make no mistake, the losses sting, and frankly, the Rockies are digging themselves a hole that they may not be fortunate enough to climb out of. However, the Thursday matinée at Coors Field provided at least a…...

The Colorado Rockies have a good problem.When Jorge De La Rosa comes back from injury, they are going to have a very difficult decision to make. There is not enough room on the roster for six starters. So someone has to be the odd man out. After a 5-1 win over the Astros on Monday night in which Hammel went…...

If you are looking for one reason why the Colorado Rockies lost to the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-3 on Saturday night in Phoenix, look no further than manager Jim Tracy.Of course Tracy was not the only reason why the Rockies lost. He never touched a bat or a ball all night long. What he did do, however, was fill out the…...

The Colorado Rockies have something that they have never had before. Pitching depth.On Tuesday at Coors Field, Jhoulys Chacin, in the rotation because of Jorge De La Rosa’s injury, showed that the Rockies have more than five capable starters. The 22 year-old Venezuelan led the Rockies to a 3-2 victory over the Diamondbacks, extending the Rockies winning streak to three…...

The Rockies won on Saturday 3-0. While the offense scored when they needed to, the game was won on the mound.Jeff Francis reminded everyone what they have been missing since he led the team to the World Series in 2007. The lefty, back from injury and pitching in just his second game since an ill-fated attempt at finishing the 2008…...

Disgusting, sick, gross, nasty, ugly. Their are plenty of words to describe the latest Rockies debacle, but none of them are positive.The Rox dropped a very win-able game at Wrigley Field on Tuesday night 6-2. It was the latest example of the Rockies making a decent pitcher look like a Cy Young winner. Tuesday’s Cy Young was Carlos Silva, an…...

At any point in the history of the Colorado Rockies if three of the projected five starting pitchers had gone on the disabled list, the Rockies could have kissed their season goodbye.2010 is a different year for the Rockies. On Saturday night, Jhoulys Chacin, who was helped by a six-run 1st inning, gave a glimpse into what can happen when…...

It almost seems inevitable at this point. The Rockies struggle early, thats just the way it goes. Despite a series win in San Diego and a road trip that shows the Rockies sporting a .500 record, the truth is, they are not a team that is playing well.The Rockies are playing poor defense, they leave too many runners in scoring…...

It might be tough to send Jhoulys Chacin back to Colorado Springs. The 23-year-old Venezuelan looked nothing like someone who was making their second big league start. He was calm, composed and full of confidence. He helped the Rockies to a 4-1 win to salvage the finale of a three game series in San Francisco.Chacin, who has ranked among the…...

The Rockies have been to the playoffs two out of the last three years. They have one of the best lineups in baseball. They have an ace who is 4-0 and has an ERA well below 1.00. They have respect from around the league. Judging by the way the Rockies are playing, it would be easy to guess that these…...

When you face Dan Haren, you have to be perfect. So essentially the Rockies were done after Jason Hammel gave up three runs in the top of the first inning. The Diamondbacks went on to win 5-3. Hammel looked like he was going to be just fine. He got two quick outs, then was up on Justin Upton 0-2 before…...
