Injuries happen. Every team deals with them. They should never be an excuse.That said, when Jorge De La Rosa went down with tear in his throwing elbow, the Colorado Rockies season pretty much went up in smoke.Imagine a rotation that currently featured a progressing Ubaldo Jimenez, De La Rosa, Jhoulys Chacin, and then Jason Hammel and Juan Nicasio. The guys…...

Apparently Fredi Gonazalez hasn’t heard about a guy who plays for the Colorado Rockies who shares his last name.With Dexter Fowler on second base and Ty Wigginton coming to the plate with two outs, the Braves manager elected to walk Wigginton in order to face Carlos Gonzalez. The thought was the age-old baseball theory that a right-handed batter hits a…...

Baseball is a business. Nothing will remind the average fan of that like news that no fewer than 17 teams had scouts in the stands watching Ubaldo Jimenez. As rumors swirl about the ace, he insists he will go about his business in the exact same way that he always has. He proved that to be true on Tuesday night…...

If the Colorado Rockies want to play in meaningful games in September, they are going to have to play like they did on Thursday night far more frequently.Going into the 2011 season, most expected far more games like this. Twenty hits from an offense that has depth and talent, and a pitching performance that featured a guy actually pitching, rather…...

One walk. That is the key for Ubaldo Jimenez. There is a line full of good numbers for Jimenez, eight innings pitched, five hits, one earned run, eight strike outs. All of those numbers show a great performance by the right-hander. All of them are great, but the number that is key to all of them is the one walk.When…...

It’s still early. It’s only May. There is plenty of time. This team will hit.Those were the excuses that continuously came out of the Rockies clubhouse as they relaxed their way into an 8-20 May. They insisted that with the talent on the club, that eventually they would come around and find ways to win baseball games.That talk sounded great.…...

The Colorado Rockies now understand what all the hype is about.It isn’t too often that a 21 year-old is featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated before he has been on an Opening Day roster. That is what happened with Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman. The lefty slugger was a one man demolition crew for the Braves, belting two home…...

They went 1-for-8 with runners in scoring position. They left 11 men on base, including leaving the bases loaded on two separate occasions. They couldn’t seem to get the knockout blow when they needed it most.But they won.On Friday night in the Bronx. The Colorado Rockies, led by a 3-for-4 night from Jason Giambi, and a stellar pitching performance from…...

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…...

With a big 6-5 win on Saturday night for the Rockies, they are now back to .500. Seventy games into the 2011 season and the Colorado Rockies are exactly where they were before Opening Day.The Rockies rode the right arm — and the bat, of Ubaldo Jimenez to victory on Saturday. The right-hander was sharp through five innings. He gave…...

So much for momentum.The Colorado Rockies looked like they were going to shift it into high gear after taking a series in San Diego, then dominating the Dodgers in the first two games of a four game set. Unfortunately for the Rockies, they couldn’t keep that momentum going. On Saturday night they played their way out of a win, and…...

Tim Stauffer. Add that name to the list of pitchers who have completely dominated the Colorado Rockies offense that was supposed to be the best in the National League West. On Tuesday, Stauffer stifled the Rockies offense, going eight shutout innings and giving up just four hits. The Padres pitcher struck out eight and walked just one.There is no answer…...

May was rough for the Colorado Rockies. That has been well publicized.Despite the Rockies finishing the month of May with an 8-21 mark, the third-worst month in franchise history, they still are within striking distance of the National League West lead.That is a pretty amazing statement, considering how poorly they looked throughout the month. Going into a three game set…...

That’s more like it.After looking extremely pedestrian for the first two months of the season, Ubaldo Jimenez, the Colorado Rockies ace, finally showed signs of regaining the form that made him the National League’s All-Star game, and the club’s first 19-game winner a year ago.Jimenez broke out of his funk in impressive fashion, pitching a complete-game shutout, snagging a sweep…...

Nothing new to say. The Colorado Rockies wrote the same story with their bats that they have written all month long.On Tuesday, the Rockies scored two runs, and once again, got obliterated by the hapless Dodgers, who are now one game away from sweeping the Rockies and leapfrogging them in the standings all at once.What is the issue? At this…...

Twenty losses in May. Twenty. With one day to go.It almost takes effort for a Major League team to lose 20 games in a month. The nature of baseball would suggest that just by showing up a team should be able to avoid losing 20 games in any month. There is no reason a team should lose 20 games in…...

The way that this 2011 Colorado Rockies team has played has been nothing short of insane. They struggle for five straight games, then light up one of the National League’s top pitchers so far.Most would think that some of that momentum would carry into Sunday’s action, but instead, it was back to business as usual. The Rockies offense scored three…...

Ubaldo Jimenez is in the middle of a storied collapse. After starting the 2010 season 15-1, Jimenez has limped to a record of 4-12 since starting the 2010 All-Star game, including an 0-5 record so far in 2011. His record is terrible, but his lack of dominance is far more concerning than the record. Jimenez, Jim Tracy, and the Rockies…...

The Colorado Rockies dropped another game on the road on Sunday, completing another disappointing trip. The Sunday version included the Brewers completing a three-game sweep of the Rockies with a 3-1 victory. Once again, Ubaldo Jimenez failed to pick up a win. He went eight innings, giving up just three runs on two hits. He walked five batters and hit…...

The excuse of it being early must have gotten old to the Colorado Rockies, too.On Tuesday at Coors Field, the Rockies completed a mini-sweep of the San Francisco Giants, taking both games of a two-game series. Again, the hero was Carlos Gonzalez, who drove in the go-ahead runs against Javier Lopez in the bottom of the eighth inning. The Rocks…...
