The mountaintop. The pinnacle. The apex. The peak. The zenith. In sports, these words are used to describe the rarest of achievements. Why? Because all the way at the top, there is only room for one. And in the history of the Colorado Rockies, there has been one – and only one – pitcher to complete a nine-inning baseball game...

Coming off a successful 2017 campaign that saw the Rockies make the playoffs for the first time in eight years by winning the second National League Wild Card, your pals in purple picked up right where they left off for Opening Day 2018: Chase Field in Phoenix, AZ. The 11-8 loss in the NL Wild Card game the previous season was a rollercoaster of emotions as Arizona knocking out staff ace Jon Gray en route to a 6-0 start through three innings before Colorado immediately responded with a four-run fourth, even coming to within a run of erasing the early deficit until trade deadline acquisition Pat Neshek surrendered a heartbreaking two-run triple to relief pitcher Archie Bradley. Final result be…

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...

For the second consecutive Spring Training meeting, the Colorado Rockies got whomped by the Los Angeles Dodgers, this time by a score of 7-1. The results were undoubtedly ugly for the boys in purple but for reasons completely unrelated to where these two teams are at right now, that was to be expected. Turning Point – When the lineups came...

It looked like the Colorado Rockies were in for a lackluster loss at the hands of the Texas Rangers on Wendesday afternoon but Bret Boswell kept his hot spring alive with a huge late swing of the bat to give his club a 4-3 win. Player of the Game: Ubaldo Jimenez He wasn’t anything special on the mound, giving up...

DENVER – The result of every Colorado Rockies game counts… until it doesn’t. Unfortunately, plenty of fans and analysts around the game seem yet undecided on this issues. Sure, there has been no effort to move the club (thank God) but the folks in charge of talking on TV and/or voting for awards to celebrate the very best our sport has to offer, use Coors Field as an excuse to underrate players in purple so often that one has to wonder if they just don’t think baseball here is legitimate. Ironically, this attitude has percolated so resoundingly that some of the most elite talents in the game have been completely overlooked despite having to deal with a dynamic that…

Eight days after signing a contract extension for five years, $43 million, German Marquez showed exactly why the consensus around these parts was that, despite him being just 24-years-old, the Colorado Rockies got an absolute steal. He is already the owner of some franchise and even MLB records for strikeouts and on Sunday, he may well have pitched the best...

In 2016 Jon Gray had the ninth-best pitching season by fWAR in the history of the Colorado Rockies, he was a rookie. Now unencumbered by the the weight of playing in the show and with the unquestioned title of ace of the staff on his name, the Gray Wolf could howl towards uncharted territory for a Rockies starting pitcher. The...

For years the Major League Baseball trade deadline has come and gone, with the Colorado Rockies being irrelevant. With the exception of the Ubaldo Jimenez trade on July 30th, 2011, the Rockies have done next to nothing around the deadline. Similarly to the offseason, the Rockies seem to ignore this important date on the calendar. For a draft-and-develop organization, that...

Trading De La Rosa would be a mistake for the Rockies. The Colorado Rockies season is over. No one is arguing that they have any chance anymore. With another season in the books well before the All-Star break, the Rockies are in a position to have the rest of the league pick through their roster and try to find a...

Eddie Butler is one reason for Rockies fans to be excited. Hope springs eternal. Something about those words gives fans of the 29 teams that didn’t win the World Series a reason to be excited every February. Those are the words that Colorado Rockies fans have had to live by for a very long time. The Rockies are the epitome...

The Rockies acquired Brett Anderson for Drew Pomeranz. The chorus from Colorado Rockies fans is growing louder. The grumbling has hit a new level. Fans want Dan O’Dowd and the rest of the front office removed from 20th & Blake. The front office deserves plenty of criticism, and I have certainly been vocal in my opinion that change is extremely...

The Colorado Rockies deserve their fair share of criticism It’s time for a little rant. When I started this blog, it was because I felt that I had different viewpoints on the Colorado Rockies than many of the people who were commenting on Denver Post articles, or in other forums on the internet. It was my way to express my...

Trading Tulowitzki would be a huge mistake. As the Colorado Rockies start playing spring training games, the offseason news has just begun. During the offseason, a few rogue reports suggested that the Rockies explore trades for both superstars Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki. The thinking is that with the Rockies clearly in rebuilding mode, the team should ship off their...

Alex White never realized his potential in a Rockies uniform. The Colorado Rockies dealt starting pitcher Alex White, one of the main pieces of the Ubaldo Jimenez trade, to the Houston Astros for late-inning reliever Wilton Lopez. Lopez is a 29-year-old who owns a career ERA of 3.14 since 2009. He went 6-3 with a 2.17 ERA with 10 saves...

Drew Pomeranz has shown flashes of brilliance. It was ugly. It was a reminder of everything that is wrong with the Colorado Rockies. Then suddenly it looked like the Rockies would overcome everything that was so ugly. Dreams of a sweep ended quickly when the Dodgers put up six runs in the 3rd inning. However, the Rockies mounted an impressive...
