The Colorado Rockies have once again come out of gate strong. For the third year in a row, April looks like it is going to be a great month for the club. Through nine games, the Rockies are 7-2. That record alone is impressive, but consider the fact that the club is 6-0 on the road, including a sweep of...

Please pardon the overreacting Colorado Rockies fans. Sure, the Rockies 5-4 victory in 10 innings only gave them three wins on the season. There are 159 of these games to go. However, faulting a Rockies fan for getting excited about the sweep is like making fun of a guy roaming the desert for months who gets excited about his first…...

The Colorado Rockies have scored 15 runs through their first two games — both wins. They tied a 103-year-old record with 12 doubles in the first two games of the season. Their offense is hitting on all cylinders, all of which has come on the road. However, through the first two games, the offense isn’t the story for the Rockies.…...

Finally some good news on the injury front for the Rockies. Colorado ace Jorge De La Rosa threw a bullpen session on Wednesday in Scottsdale. De La Rosa threw about 30 pitches and if he continues without any setbacks, he should be on schedule to make his season debut April 14th when the Rockies play the Giants in San Francisco.…...

In preparation for trimming the roster down to 25 players before Sunday’s deadline, the Rockies have opted for other talent over some of their key players from 2014. Colorado has sent both LHP Rex Brothers and OF Brandon Barnes to the minors. Brothers has long been thought to be the closer of the future for the Rockies, but struggled in…...

Another one bites the dust. First Jorge De La Rosa, then David Hale, now add Eddie Butler to the ever growing list of potential rotation members that will likely start the season on the disabled list. Butler was almost a lock to join the Rockies rotation right out of the gate before he informed the Rockies training staff about discomfort…...

The “If we stay healthy” narrative isn’t starting of so well for the Rockies. On Jorge De La Rosa: “Other than playing catch, he’s pretty much shut down,” Weiss said. Unlikely he’s ready for start of #Rockies season. — Nick Groke (@nickgroke) March 24, 2015 De La Rosa has been battling a groin injury all of Spring Training, and will…...

The Colorado Rockies as a franchise are known for one thing; playing at altitude. Those outside the Mile High City view Coors Field as a great place to hit, but a terrible place to pitch. For years, the Rockies have been built to suit that environment. With the exception of a handful of pitchers, the Rockies model was always to…...

Could the Rockies be good in 2015? Something that many people don’t know about a Colorado Rockies blogger is that they simply cannot win. That has nothing to do with the baseball team. It has everything to do with what gets written. Trust me. Write something about how the Rockies could be good, or how a player is destined for…...

The Rockies have made a couple of moves this week in an effort to bolster their pitching. The club signed John Axford on Monday and added longtime Phillies starter Kyle Kendrick yesterday. Here’s how the rotation may project entering spring training. 1. LHP Jorge De La Rosa (14-11 4.10 ERA) Jorge “Mr. Coors Field” De La Rosa is just 4 wins…...

Much of the hope for the Colorado Rockies immediate future rests on Eddie Butler’s right arm. On Saturday, Butler gave far more reason for excitement than he did in his lone big league start back in June. His six innings of one-run baseball was impressive, even if it came against the one team int he National League worse than the…...

Tyler Matzek was good again on Tuesday night. In the midst of all of the negative, a few things positive might be coming out for the Colorado Rockies. On Tuesday night at Coors Field, Tyler Matzek proved that his recent success wasn’t simply because he was facing bad teams. The rookie went 5-1/3 innings, giving up just two runs. He…...

Jordan Lyles pitched decent, but was left in the game too long. What is left to be said? The Colorado Rockies are the only team in baseball that goes up 7-1 and their fans feel like it won’t be enough. The fans are rooting for the starter to work deep into the 7th inning, just so the terrible bullpen doesn’t…...

Jordan Lyles solid outing was spoiled by the Rockies pitch count rule. Jordan Lyles glared at Walt Weiss as the Colorado Rockies manager came to take him out of the game in the 6th inning. Starting pitchers aren’t generally thrilled when their manager takes them out of the game, but Lyles face told a different story. The story was one…...

The Rockies never expected Blackmon to contribute the way he has. It was an outcome that surprised no one. For the second straight night, and for the seemingly 100th time in a miserable season for the Colorado Rockies, a starting pitcher looked like a Cy Young candidate against their makeshift lineup. On Saturday night it was Rick Porcello’s chance to…...

Brett Anderson didn’t provide the outing the Rockies were hoping for. That couldn’t have come soon enough. The Colorado Rockies skidded into the All-Star break with a terrible series against the Minnesota Twins, a lowly American League team that has nothing to look forward to after the All-Star break themselves. However, the Rockies were soundly defeated twice, looking completely outmatched.…...

Don’t expect these guys to go anywhere in the offseason. What is left to be said?

On Wednesday, despite having their fifth starter from Colorado Springs on the mound making his big…...

Juan Nicasio isn’t a starter. He belongs in the bullpen. As bad as the Colorado Rockies nine game road trip was, the first three games of their 10-game homestand might be worse. Thursday night’s 12-7 debacle underscores exactly why this team doesn’t have the means to make a run. It highlights all of the weaknesses that this team has and…...
