Before the age of analytics, our eyes were the only tools in evaluating players across all sports. While its easy to identify talented players like Mike Trout, Nolan Arenado and Max Scherzer as the current greats of the game, it’s players on every tier below that become hard to quantify. The advent of wins-above-replacement (WAR), a measure with no exact…

I never question why a fan falls in love with a player. That is part of the fun of being a fan. Finding something in a particular player that makes you root for that guy. It might be his talent, it might be his character, it might be his work ethic, it might be his looks, it might be his…...

Not just because they signed Troy Tulowitzki…...

The Colorado Rockies have traded catcher Miguel Olivo to the Toronto Blue Jays for a player to be named later.The club had been mulling over what to do with the catcher, who had a club option for $2.5 million with a $500,000 buyout. What the move means for Rockies fans is one of a few things. Either the Rockies are…...

The Colorado Rockies lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers in their home finale on Wednesday 7-6. The one run loss summed up the Colorado season perfectly. Once again, the Rockies lost the game, the Dodgers didn’t win it. With four games remaining in the season, it is easy to look back and see how many opportunities the Rockies had in…...

Take off the purple colored glasses for a minute. Forget about the magic of 2009. Forget about the past for a moment.The Rockies had climbed back into the game on Carlos Gonzalez’s first career grand slam. With the score 8-6, Joe Beimel allowed Stephen Drew, a guy who seems to only hit against the Rockies, to hit a solo home…...

What’s new? Nothing with the Rockies.On Thursday night in Los Angeles, a place the Rockies go to lose, dropped the final game of the three game series. They were shutout once again, 2-0.In 28 innings in the three game series, the Rockies scored a total of three runs. One of those was a gift, in the 10th inning of the…...

Off-days are nice sometimes. They give the chance to take a step back from the game and really analyze what is going on.With the Rockies playoff chances on life support and not much fight left in the team, the question has to be asked. Why has this Rockies team, essentially the same team as the Colorado team that won the…...

The Rockies walked off with a win on Sunday. Their fans walked off sick to their stomachs.It was, without a doubt, the worst walk off victory in the history of the Colorado Rockies.If the Rockies would have ended up on the wrong end of the score on Sunday, there would be only one person to blame. No, not Huston Street.…...

There are going to be some surprised people who read the box score in the morning.With the Rockies down 9-3 heading into the 9th inning on Tuesday, the majority of the 32,922 fans found their way to the exits. There was no way the Rockies were coming back. There was no way the Rockies could possibly win the game…except they…...

The Colorado Rockies are used to it. They are the lone team that plays in the Mountain Time zone. Therefore, games on the east coast are wrapping up when they start, and games on the west coast are underway shortly after the Rockies start. What that means is that none of baseball’s so-called experts are watching the team play. That…...

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…...

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.…...

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…...

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 Colorado Rockies 2010 season was filled with promise. The rotation was strong one through five. The lineup could gave opposing pitchers no breaks. The defense was as good as any in the league.However, with one quarter of the 2010 season complete, there are only two words that can be used to describe the teams success.Ubaldo Jimenez.While the ace has…...

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…...
