It’s been a while since baseball has seen a leadoff hitter like Charlie Blackmon

Colorado Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon is by and large the most dynamic leadoff man in baseball right now. He boasts the skill set of a traditional leadoff hitter whose job is to get on base to set the table for the rest of the order; however, Blackmon also has the ability to flip the switch and become a hitter with an abundance of power and the ability to drive in runs...

Chatwood flirts with no-hitter again, Rockies win 7-2 in Philly

  Do you all remember Jeremy Hellickson? Sure you do, he was that underachieving pitcher on the Diamondbacks a few years ago. Wait … you mean to tell me that doesn’t narrow it down? Color me shocked.
