Maybe Barack Obama should focus on shutting down Chase Field instead of Guantanamo Bay. There are terrorists at the prison camp that have sustained less torture than Rockies fans have watching their team play in Arizona since 2008. The culmination of the torture came on Wednesday night as the Rockies suffered a devastating 8-4 loss.Watching Ubaldo Jimenez labor through four…...

The Colorado Rockies continued their climb to the top of the standings on Saturday night, but it didn’t come the way most probably thought it would. The result, however, is the same for the Rockies, who came from behind in the late innings to win 2-1.With Ubaldo Jimenez taking the mound against Rodrigo Lopez, who came into the game with…...

In 2007 it was unbelievable. In 2009 it was exciting. In 2010 it is becoming annoying.As soon as it looks like the Colorado Rockies are dead in the water, they take another breath and show that they are not quite done yet.On Sunday, the Rockies defeated the San Diego Padres 4-2 at Petco Park, completing a three-game sweep. It was…...

Can the 2010 season for the Colorado Rockies get any more strange?With a 4-3 victory over the San Diego Padres on Friday night, the Rockies moved closer in the standings to the Padres in the West than they are to the Phillies in the Wild Card. All of this coming a work week after being within 3-1/2 games of the…...

Hindsight is 20/20.It is easy to second guess a managers decisions, but Jim Tracy makes it easy. The problem with being stubborn is that you are too stubborn to learn from your mistakes.From the looks of it, Tracy doesn’t realize that a run counts the same whether it is scored in the 1st inning, 4th inning, or 9th inning. He…...

Melvin Mora, with one swing of the bat, showed what he thought of the Rockies inability to score runs on the road. He lined a 2-2 pitch with two outs deep to left field that had just enough distance to get over the high wall of Citi Field for a grand slam. The blast propelled the Rockies to a 6-2…...

Jeff Francis reminded the Rockies of what they had in 2007.After four mediocre starts in a row, the lefty was on the verge of losing his rotation spot. Instead of giving in to the pressure, Francis put his foot down. He threw seven shutout innings, giving up just three hits. He struck out seven Marlin batters while not giving up…...

The Colorado Rockies finished the first half of the 2010 season 10 games above .500 and two games behind the San Diego Padres in the National League West race. At the beginning of the season, most Rockies fans would have been content with those numbers. However, there is still a sense of under achievement when it comes to this Rockies…...

The victory moved the Rockies to within just one game of taking the lead over.The game was yet another example of just how deep this Rockies organization is.

The fireworks started early at Coors Field on Saturday night.The Giants won a slug fest 11-8 over the Rockies in a game no one would have expected 19 runs to be scored in. The Rockies had scored seven runs to erase another poor start from ace Ubaldo Jimenez, putting him in line for his 15th win.With the momentum in the…...

A day after the Rockies scored eight runs, the offense decided to go back to the status quo, and Jim Tracy went right back to managing his way out of ball games.The Rockies dropped what at one point was a pitcher’s duel, 6-1 on Father’s Day at Coors Field. Aaron Cook was good, but once again managed to blow a…...

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…...

There in no more polarizing figure in the Rockies clubhouse than Clint Barmes. He is a great defensive player. No one argues that. He plays second base as good as almost anyone in the league. His offense, however, has been a point of contention among Rockies fans. Barmes entered Tuesday night’s game at AT&T Park in San Francisco with a…...

The Los Angeles Dodgers are becoming the Atlanta Braves of 1993, ’94, and ’95. The Rockies simply cannot find a way to beat them.Riding a season-high four game winning streak, the Rockies looked like they might break through and put themselves in a position to win a series against the Dodgers.

The Coors Field clubhouse is cursed.It has to be. There is no other way to explain what is going on with the Rockies. Look at the number of players who have been or who are on the disabled list. Jeff Francis, Huston Street, Brad Hawpe, Jorge De La Rosa, Jason Hammel, Franklin Morales. Those names go along with the injured,…...

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…...

One of the critiques of Jim Tracy when he managed in both Los Angeles and Pittsburgh was that he micromanaged too much. Rockies fans did not really see that in 2009 after he took over for Clint Hurdle. However, that side of Tracy seems to be coming out, and many Rockies fans are already disapproving.The Colorado Rockies are 3-3. The…...
