The Colorado Rockies were busy acquiring, extending and non-tendering players just 48 hours after making their second trade of their offseason on a busy Friday afternoon. Colorado claimed LHP Brent Suter off waivers from the Milwaukee Brewers to improve an inexperienced bullpen. Originally drafted out of Harvard in the 31st round of the 2012 MLB Draft, Suter had spent his…

Kevin Henry from RoxPile and Call To The Pen dives into the ramifications of Commissioner Manfred’s announcement that the universal DH will be back for good in 2022 and that certain changes are on the way for the MLB Draft.

In the 27 seasons of the Colorado Rockies, several speedy purple players have been seen sprinting along the base paths of Mile High Stadium and Coors Field. Eric Young Sr once led the National League in stolen bases with 53 in 1996; Dexter Fowler and Charlie Blackmon each sat atop all of MLB with 14 triples in 2010 and 2017, respectively; and the Rockies are among only six franchises with three players to have a 30-30 season (30 home runs and 30 stolen bases): Ellis Burks, Dante Bichette and Trevor Story. Yet, when it comes to the first triple in franchise history, that distinction goes to catcher Joe Girardi. Selected with the 19th pick in the 1992 Expansion Draft from…

The 2015 season was rough for the Colorado Rockies starting pitching. They lost starter Jordan Lyles in late May and failed to produce a 10-game winner. Not to mention free agent acquisition Kyle Kendrick giving up a MLB leading 33 home runs and sporting a dismal 6.32 ERA. However, there were a few bright spots, Jon Gray made his MLB debut...

It happened again on Sunday, the Denver Post pumped out another story by Woody Paige about the terrible, no good, awful Colorado Rockies. It was as predictable as it was annoying. It also reminded us of one thing; Woody Paige is completely irrelevant when it comes to baseball. Paige, as he stumbled and bumbled his way through a standard diatribe,...

It’s all about the pitching. The Colorado Rockies are talented. They have a lineup that rivals anyone in the National League. They have superstars and budding superstars. Their defense is better than anyone in baseball, specifically around the infield. The one area where the Rockies don’t match up well with the rest of the league, the National League West in...

Baseball is a strange game. Was there any doubt when the Colorado Rockies announced that closer Adam Ottavino was headed to the 15-day disabled list that they would be clinging to a one-run lead as they headed to the 9th inning? That always seems to be the way baseball works. With the tying run at third base and the winning...
