Since the MLB-imposed lockout began on Dec 2, the two sides have not had a meaningful conversation on core economic issues. Thursday is the finally the day. What’s the future of free agency and arbitration? Will the universal DH definitely be coming? Is a draft lottery really possible? Plus, we’ll get into the details of the international signing period. What…

Context is king.  This has very much flown out the window in the last few years as sound bites have joined forces with a 280 character-limit causing society to lose all ability to decipher what anything means in the greater sense.  As such, it feels like a good time to attempt to uncover it all for Brendan Rodgers and put…...

Steve Reed represented the Colorado Rockies through their first five seasons of existence and pitched in more games than any other for the franchise, spending half his 14-year career in purple. His 140 ERA+ is often overlooked, and remains a staggering figure during era pitched mostly before the advent of the humidor.   Steve Reed Award for Unsung Hero Elias Díaz…...

The prototypical batting lineup probably looks the same for most folks when they dream up a perfect team. The speediest player on the roster – center fielder or shortstop – has traditionally batted first. (Of course, having a player with the best on-base percentage leading off may take some precedence in the modern age of sabermetrics, but the position is…...

Earlier today, the White Sox announced that they acquired Rockies pitcher, Tommy Kahnle in exchange for minor league RHP, Yency Almonte. This move comes just four days after the Rockies designated Kahnle for assignment. This trade continues the early stages of an offseason during which Rockies fans have seen general manager Jeff Bridich make only minor moves to the team.…...

There is a lot of speculation as to what the Colorado Rockies should do with Wilin Rosario. There are many who think the Rockies should ship him out of town while he still has some remaining value. While others think his value may increase should the Rockies decide to hang on to him for the time being. Either way, it…...

Grantland’s Jonah Keri wrote, “the Rockies could be this year’s out-of-nowhere squad that rides 99th-percentile luck to a big season.” This fell in line with my spring training prediction of 68 or 88 wins for the 2015 Colorado Rockies. There was an alternate universe where Jon Gray was called up 15 days into the season, Troy Tulowitzki played 140 games in Denver,…...

Let’s play a quick game of “Guess The Recap.” Here is the scenario: Kyle Kendrick is going up against Michal Wacha. If you guessed a 7-0 Cardinals victory with a lifeless Colorado Rockies team going through the motions for nine innings, congratulations, you are the winner. The Rockies traded Troy Tulowitzki to the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday, in…...

The Colorado Rockies lost 3-2 on Wednesday at Wrigley Field in Chicago. The reality is, no one cares. It sounds flippant, but the day-in and day-out results really have very little effect on anything anymore in 2015. Essentially, the final results after game 162 will be that the Rockies didn’t win enough games and lost too many. How those…...

Break’s over, back to reality. For fans of many baseball teams around the country, the four-day All-Star break is way too long. Their team is in the thick of a pennant race and they are dying to see their team keep the momentum going. For fans of the Colorado Rockies, the break is a much-needed breath of fresh air…...

No, the Colorado Rockies shouldn’t trade Troy Tulowitzki. Let’s be clear about that. While the Rockies were winning their second consecutive game against the Atlanta Braves 5-3, the second sellout crowd was forced to wait through a rain delay–for the fireworks. The Rockies won a game with two minor league call-ups, Gonzalez German and journeyman Aaron Laffey. The game…...

If watching Joey Chestnut polish off 69 hot dogs on the 4th of July didn’t make you want to throw up, the end of the Colorado Rockies game probably did the trick. Once again, in a close game going down to the wire, the Rockies turned a potential win into a blowout loss in the late innings. It was…...

It must be nice to be a fan of the San Francisco Giants. Those who watch the Colorado Rockies can only be jealous. Saturday afternoon at AT&T Park was the latest example of who the Giants are, from top-to-bottom of their entire organization. The Rockies, up three runs early, were never able to get comfortable, and were never able…...

He wasn’t supposed to steal the spotlight this quickly. Nolan Arenado is quickly becoming the face of the Colorado Rockies franchise, despite Troy Tulowitzki still actively contributing at a near all-star level. On Tuesday night at Coors Field, the Rockies smashed five home runs in a 10-5 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks, a team that had won five out…...

Saturday afternoon at Coors Field is exactly what the front office envisioned when they put together the Colorado Rockies. The home team drilled the Miami Marlins 10-5 in a game that was full of both really good pitching and really good hitting. Despite having the talent to do it, the Rockies haven’t been able to put up many games…...

The story of Michael McKenry is an interesting one for the Colorado Rockies. On Thursday at a gloomy and dreary Coors Field, McKenry provided the ray of sunshine for the Rockies. He broke a 3-3 tie in the 5th inning with a two-run blast to left field off of Phillies starter Jerome Williams to give the Rockies a 5-3…...

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…...

38 balls 20 strikes. Thats what it takes to get you sent down to the minors to work on your game. After Tyler Matzek’s latest start, the Rockies have decided he needs a tune up. LHP Tyler Matzek has been optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque. In a corresponding move, C/INF Wilin Rosario has been recalled to the #Rockies. — Colorado…...
