Amazingly, it keeps getting worse for the Rockies. It was a game the Colorado Rockies should have won. They were one out away from securing the victory before the Phillies stole one away from them, winning 7-6. Rafael Betancourt couldn’t get the final out in the bottom of the 9th inning, partly because of bad defense and partly because of…...

Ty Wigginton is gone. That is good news to anyone who watched the third baseman/first baseman/left fielder/right fielder struggle at every position that he was ridiculously put into.Even worse than his defense, Wigginton at the plate was even worse. It went beyond his .163 batting average with men in scoring position. That was just the bitter fruit that resulted from…...

One step forward, two steps back. That is the story of the Colorado Rockies season. Just when things start to come together, when the team is hitting well, pitching well and playing fundamental baseball, they have to go and mess it all up. On Wednesday night in Cincinnati, the Rockies were given a lift by newly-acquired pitcher Kevin Millwood. The…...

It’s over. All the hype. All the anticipation. All the predictions. All the talk. Everything that went into how good the Colorado Rockies were going to be, and, on July 7th, the verdict is in. The Rockies stink.It may sound negative. It may sound like pessimism, but let’s be honest, this team is looking more and more like a team…...

Stranger things have happened.When Troy Tulowitzki hit third base and kept on going, scoring from first base on a Ty Wigginton bloop single to give the Colorado Rockies a 3-2 victory in 13 innings against the Chicago White Sox, it was time for a celebration, but an odd one.Scoring from first doesn’t always happen on a line drive into the…...

Jason Hammel wound up, made the turn, pulled the ball out of his glove, and then stopped. That’s right. He just stopped. Home plate Umpire Sam Holbrook then made the easiest balk call of his career. With two outs in third inning, runners at second and third base, and Indians DH Travis Hafner down to his final strike, Hammel committed…...

Let’s face it. 6-4 at home isn’t going to cut it.The Colorado Rockies finished off their longest homestand of the season by facing the toughest pitcher they have faced all season long. On Sunday, Justin Verlander absolutely dominated an offense that had caught fire. The flame-throwing right-hander tossed a complete game, giving up just one home run on a Ty…...
