Two days before the first game in franchise history, the Colorado Rockies signed a player many believed would be their first member of the Baseball Hall of Fame. Dale Murphy was released by the Philadelphia Phillies in the early hours of April 3, 1993  and was just two home runs short of 400 for his career. (At the time, only…...

Cy Young was the most wins of any pitcher in the history of baseball and is credited with the first perfect game of the modern era. Only one pitcher has started the All-Star Game as a member of the Colorado Rockies and only one has thrown a no-hitter. That man, Ubaldo Jiménez, also finished higher than any other Rockies’ hurler…...

The Colorado Rockies’ 2021 season can be viewed at various points along the spectrum, including those at the most extreme. A failure due to a fourth-place finish in the National League West, the 74-87 record is the organization’s third consecutive losing season. With cornerstones Trevor Story and Jon Gray approaching free agency and payroll not yet equipped to climb back…

We heard your requests and Monday Mailbag is here! Our DNVR members ask everything about the Jon Gray’s free agency, Colorado’s next two transactions, best/worst umpires and potential changes to the upcoming collective bargaining agreement.

Robinson Cano hit a sharp ground ball to second base for the final out in the second inning in Anaheim to finish the day for Ubaldo Jiménez. Since that day in 2010, the Colorado Rockies have yet to be represented by another starting pitcher in the All-Star Game. Until now. On Sunday, while Germán Márquez was putting the finished touches…...

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. Like a waking dream, this moments felt eerily familiar to Marquez.…...

Nolan Arenado is good at baseball. There. It’s been said. Following his well-earned eight-year, $260M contract extension in the offseason, the five-time All-Star picked up where he left off to begin the 2019 season. Arenado aided Colorado’s 5-0 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates and starter Chris Archer with two singles that begin a streak of seven consecutive multi-hit games, the fourth…
