They say history has a way of repeating itself. And on a hot summer Tuesday night at Coors Field, echoes from the past – ghosts from bygone eras – wandered the hallowed grounds of the baseball diamond ready to etch a new name into the history books; German Marquez.

If you want to win baseball games, you have to pitch well. It’s that simple. The Colorado Rockies have experienced a dearth of quality prospects in the starting pitching department ever since graduating the players who currently make up the MLB rotation. And while they still don’t boast the high-end possibilities that the system contained back when it was filled...

Kyle Freeland is just 26-years-old and entering his fourth year pitching in MLB and yet there are already quite a few classic – dare I say iconic – moments that he has been a part of or even directly responsible for. He has seen two postseasons, finished fourth in Cy Young voting, out-dueled the winningest pitcher in MLB postseason history...

On your left! Things in life can sometimes sneak up on you. Objects in the mirror may be closer than they appear. And James Pazos, left-handed reliever, is incredibly close to sneaking up on being exactly what the Colorado Rockies need right now.

Add one more name to the list of pitchers looking to crack the Rockies starting rotation in 2020. “After talking amongst ourselves organizationally and with Wes, I think this is the way to go now to try and stretch him out as a starter,” manager Bud Black shared. “He’s motivated to start. Wants to start. His desire is to start.” Wes Parsons, claimed on waivers by Colorado on August 19, may have tossed 19.1 innings in purple last season out of the bullpen, but a majority of his career prior had existed as a pitcher that started the game rather than one more suited to finish it. The undrafted right-handed hurler originally signed with Atlanta out of a Tennessee junior…

For those who aren’t interested in giving the Colorado Rockies a nuanced look, they are a 71-win team with no substantial changes coming in the offseason and so should expect to win roughly the same number of games in 2020. If you are disinclined toward such simplicity, however, you may find yourself pontificating on the sheer magnitude of possibilities, both...

(Let us know how you liked this new audio format in the comment section) The ups and downs of a baseball season can be an endurance test for even those with the slowest of heartbeats.

(Let us know how you liked this new audio format in the comment section) DENVER – Upon the conclusion of his last appearance, Colorado Rockies starting pitcher German Márquez had more RBI than Jose Ramirez, Paul Goldschmidt, Brandon Belt, and defending NL MVP Christian Yelich in the month of May.

The beginning of the Colorado Rockies 2019 season was a purposefully designed feeling out process. You might be inclined to argue that this approach cost them a great deal especially during an eight-game losing streak that had some fans and media members reaching for the panic button. But they’ve also learned a lot so far and one of the big...
