The Colorado Rockies are always surrounded by “if’s.” Every year national baseball pundits talk about the Rockies with a big question mark on top of how they will perform. It always comes down to “if.” If Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez stay healthy, if the offense can hit away from Coors Field, if some of their young prospects bloom,…...

Walk, walk, walk, walk, walk. The Colorado Rockies gave away enough free passes to the Padres that they basically were forced to win the game on Tuesday night at Coors Field. Tyler Matzek, the Rockies starter, pitched five innings and gave the Padres six free passes. He was frequently behind in the count and once again struggled with his…...

The San Diego Chargers put up a couple of touchdowns and the Broncos could only muster a field goal…wait, this was baseball? Jorge De La Rosa’s 2015 debut went about as bad as anyone could have imagined. Maybe worse. The Rockies ace went just two innings, giving up nine runs on seven hits. Two of those were unearned. The line…...

Nolan Arenado can hit too. Just in case his bat got jealous of the attention that his glove got on Tuesday night, Arenado decided that he would show off his offensive skills as well. With two outs in the bottom of the 1st inning and two on, the Rockies looked like they might start the night leaving a golden opportunity…...

The Colorado Rockies have scored 15 runs through their first two games — both wins. They tied a 103-year-old record with 12 doubles in the first two games of the season. Their offense is hitting on all cylinders, all of which has come on the road. However, through the first two games, the offense isn’t the story for the Rockies.…...

Finally some good news on the injury front for the Rockies. Colorado ace Jorge De La Rosa threw a bullpen session on Wednesday in Scottsdale.

Another one bites the dust. First Jorge De La Rosa, then David Hale, now add Eddie Butler to the ever growing list of potential rotation members that will likely start the season on the disabled list. Butler was almost a lock to join the Rockies rotation right out of the gate before he informed the Rockies training staff about discomfort…...

The “If we stay healthy” narrative isn’t starting of so well for the Rockies. On Jorge De La Rosa: “Other than playing catch, he’s pretty much shut down,” Weiss said. Unlikely he’s ready for start of #Rockies season. — Nick Groke (@nickgroke) March 24, 2015 De La Rosa has been battling a groin injury all of Spring Training, and will…...

The Colorado Rockies as a franchise are known for one thing; playing at altitude. Those outside the Mile High City view Coors Field as a great place to hit, but a terrible place to pitch. For years, the Rockies have been built to suit that environment. With the exception of a handful of pitchers, the Rockies model was always to…...

Much of the hope for the Colorado Rockies immediate future rests on Eddie Butler’s right arm. On Saturday, Butler gave far more reason for excitement than he did in his lone big league start back in June.

Tyler Matzek was good again on Tuesday night. In the midst of all of the negative, a few things positive might be coming out for the Colorado Rockies. On Tuesday night at Coors Field, Tyler Matzek proved that his recent success wasn’t simply because he was facing bad teams. The rookie went 5-1/3 innings, giving up just two runs. He…...

Wait, the Colorado Rockies three-game sweep of the San Diego Padres isn’t the lead for all of the local late night newscasts? There must have been something else going on in town that overshadowed the Rockies. While the Broncos were destroying the Colts, then watching them claw their way back into the game, the Rockies were heading to the airport…...

Be mad at the front office of the Colorado Rockies, be mad at the ownership, but don’t be mad at the players. On Friday night, Rockies rookie Tyler Matzek pitched the best game in at least three seasons for the Rockies, and perhaps the most memorable since Ubaldo Jimenez tossed the club’s one and only no-hitter on April 18th, 2010…...

Tyler Matzek was great on Saturday. A silver lining in the black, dark sky that is the Colorado Rockies season, Tyler Matzek took another step forward on Saturday night in Arizona. The rookie went seven strong innings, giving up just three hits and three walks. He struck out four, but most importantly, he didn’t allow a run. With 103 pitches…...
