The Colorado Rockies are just terrible. You’ve heard it. You’ve read it. In fact, you probably came to that conclusion long before you had to hear it or read it. For the last 222 games of competition, they’ve been one of the worst teams in all of Major League Baseball. On top of that, they haven’t signed any key free…

We are 19 games into a 60 game season and while the Colorado Rockies have gotten out to about as good a start as anyone could have hoped for, every single negative is going to be magnified because every mistake is that much more costly. As such, it is only right that we hold the microscope up to every underperforming…...

Even in the last two years as the team has soared to back to back postseason appearances, there have been heated debates about the makeup and use of the roster. Chief among these arguments have been whether or not the team is aggressive enough on…...

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – The Colorado Rockies had, by all accounts, a relatively quiet offseason in between their exhilarating 2018 campaign and the upcoming 2019 one filled with so much promise. They let some of the most recognizable and talented players in the history of the franchise leave in free agency, mostly to the New York Yankees, and made only one…...

Things will be different for Nolan Arenado in 2019. As it stood, 2018 was already a peculiar season in the career of the superstar third baseman. He finished highest in his career for MVP voting (third) despite putting up numbers below his previous three-year averages in home runs, batting average, and slugging percentage. Even his defense, while still stellar and…...

DENVER – Sometimes a baseball season is 162 games. Sometimes, it’s just one. And then there are those times when after playing 162 games and then one more… and then one more… your season becomes defined by a three-game sample size in which you were handily swept by the Milwaukee Brewers in a very public display of offensive futility. Y’know,…

DENVER – After putting together one of the single most impressive seasons in recent MLB memory, Charlie Blackmon came into 2018 with high hopes and, soon thereafter, a shiny new contract worth 106 million over six years. Dealing with some back and knee issues early in the year, his production dropped a bit as his slumps seemed to linger longer…...
