What the Colorado Rockies Should Do With Wilin Rosario

Colorado Rockies: Time to shop Wilin Rosario

After signing free agent catcher Nick Hundley to a two-year $6.25 million deal, the Colorado Rockies are faced with a three-way controversy behind the dish, which includes Wilin Rosario and Michael McKenry.

Hey Rockies, don’t rid of Rosario just yet

Pitching woes and the Colorado Rockies have become synonymous. It has undoubtedly been the biggest weak spot of the franchise since its berth two decades ago. And watching Madison Bumgarner single handedly win the World Series for the San Francisco Giants was evidence of how important pitching is to a team’s post season success. But recent talks in Denver have many demanding a...

What Happened to Wilin Rosario?

After a breakout 2013 season in which Wilin Rosario hit .292 with 21 home runs, fantasy owners had high hopes entering the 2014 season.

During the first two months of the year he had a .225/.261/.395 slash line with a .240 BABIP. In the last four...

Rockies need Wilin Rosario to rebound quickly

Wilin Rosario’s season probably didn’t start out the way he would have liked, arguing with starter Jorge De La Rosa during the Rockies opening day loss to Miami. In hindsight, it’s fitting that Rosario’s season started on such a down note because it’s been pretty much all frustration since then. Rosario avoided the sophomore slump last season, turning in a performance almost...

Colorado Rockies open the 2014 season with a disappointment

Jorge De La Rosa looked great until the 5th inning.Thud.If the Colorado Rockies were hoping that Opening Day would be a way to reel their fan base back in with a team fun of guys who hustle, who play with heart and demand to win, they might want a do-over.
