Entering phase two of the offseason following the end of the lockout on March 10, it appeared that the Colorado Rockies might go into Opening Day with several positional battles. Center field was wide open, as was the role of the team’s closer. Left field had a similar feel to it, unless Connor Joe wasn’t convincing enough during his 211...

“I don’t think it’s any secret that one of the strongest assets of our team is the starting rotation,” Austin Gomber said on Day Two of Colorado Rockies’ Spring Training.  Helmed by a returning foursome of Germán Márquez, Antonio Senzatela, Kyle Freeland and Gomber, the entire clubhouse is confident of the staff’s ability. The 11.6 fWAR by the rotation was...

Last December, the Colorado Rockies signed RHP Chi Chi González, LHP Zac Rosscup and RHP Joe Harvey to minor league deals that came with invitations to Spring Training.  While all three had their contracts selected to the big league roster at one point during the season – only González and Rosscup would actually appear for the club – these transactions...

The unthinkable has happened: Jon Gray is no longer a member of the Colorado Rockies. Instead, he signs with the Texas Rangers to be a part of a squad that lost 102 games last season. Time to break down all the details of his contract, how the Rockies handled it and where they can go from here. “Jon Gray signs a four-year deal with the Texas Rangers, Rockies get nothing for their loss” by Patrick Lyons DON’T FORGET TO SUBSCRIBE TO THE POD! iTunes link — Stitcher Link — Pocket Casts Link — Spotify Link

For the third time in as many weeks, the future of the Colorado Rockies is on the field and in the box score.  Ryan Vilade, the club’s top overall selection in the 2017 MLB Draft, was selected from Triple-A ahead of Saturday’s game against the Washington Nationals. Though the 22-year-old finished his debut 0-for-4, he walked once and put the...

The Colorado Rockies farm system is not strong enough. What strength there is lies primarily in the lower levels and is, therefore, several years from MLB. The big league club has been stupendous at home but so terrible on the road that it all amounts to a club well under .500 that is now claiming intentions to try to compete...

For the second time this Spring the Colorado Rockies played a baseball game that ended in a tie.

Turning Point – Young Guns Fire Back...

A two-game sweep in one day but two different locations was on the table for most of the afternoon but a rough outing from the bullpen in Glendale for the Colorado Rockies against the Chicago White Sox sank that possibility. But the big story from a long term perspective was the return of Brendan Rodgers who was chomping at the...

The Colorado Rockies came out swinging in their first game of this road trip against the Los Angeles Dodgers, taking an early lead and playing some solid baseball until the wheels came off the wagon in a bottom of the fourth that decided the game. The visitors took the lead in the top of the first with back-to-back home runs...

DENVER – After surprisingly taking the series against the NL Central leading St. Louis Cardinals, the Colorado Rockies kept their little bit of late-season momentum going on Saturday night at Coors Field. Hanging on to beat the Padres by a score of 11-10 after a late flurry from the visitors, the Rockies took the series after having beaten the Friars...

DENVER – What a difference three months can make on a baseball season. When the Red Sox and Rockies squared off in Boston for a two-game set on May 14-15, Colorado was in the midst of clawing back from an awful start to the season. Even after whiffing 17 times against Chris Sale in the opener, the boys in purple...

After suffering a tough loss of the come-from-behind variety in the opener against the Cardinals, the Rockies took a tough loss of the other kind getting easily handled in an 8-3 game that was not as close as the score might suggest. Colorado, like most everyone else in baseball this season, had no answers for 23-year-old right-handed pitcher Jack Flaherty...

DENVER – Las Cucarachas don’t die easily. If you were one of the 38,181 at Coors Field who witnessed any of Colorado’s three comebacks on Sunday, you know the cockroaches usually have the last laugh. The 7-6 win wasn’t how the Rockies would have drawn it up, but Garrett Hampson’s walk-off single in the tenth inning punctuated Colorado’s fourth-straight victory and secured...

The Colorado Rockies got pretty well walloped by the Houston Astros on consecutive days for a quick and brutal two-game series sweep. Again there were moments where the Rockies made the game feel close but a couple of huge swings put the game squarely in the win column for the home team at 14-3. It was the second time in...

DENVER – On a day closer Wade Davis was relieved of his ninth-inning duties, it was the removal of David Dahl that came as the biggest surprise Friday night when the 25-year-old was carted off the field with a right ankle sprain. Colorado won 5-4 on Friday night, but it was the health of Dahl serving as the memorable moment....
