Grinders are helping the Colorado Rockies

Baseball is a funny game. Mired in a 10-game losing streak, Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss was taken to the hospital where he underwent an appendectomy on May 13. That same night, scheduled starting pitcher Jordan Lyles lasted just one inning before a lined ball off of his hand sent him to the clubhouse for an early night. After Christian Bergman pitched the game of his young...

Brandon Barnes: Rockies sparkplug?

The Colorado Rockies have been playing well since Brandon Barnes was called up from Triple-A Albuquerque. The team had lost 15 of 18 games, but has gone 4-3 since his call-up, including a perfect 4-0 when he’s started. Coincidence? Mile High Sports sees a correlation: Although their third consecutive win was against a poor Reds team, the first two wins were against a hot Giants...

Brandon Barnes’ positive effect on the Rockies

Video: Nolan Arenado Status Report: Still Ridiculous

As a Dodger fan, I root for Nolan Arenado 143 games a year, but I’ve come to understand that enduring great plays against your favorite team is sometimes the price you pay to watch him make great plays against the rest of the league. Arenado’s Colorado Rockies are currently playing a series against the Cincinnati Reds, which means I can just sit back and enjoy the show. Arenado...

Nolan Arenado is becoming the new face of the Colorado Rockies

  Move over Tulo, Nolan Arenado is the new face of the Colorado Rockies franchise. The Rockies won 5-4 on Monday, scoring the winning run against Reds closer Aroldis Chapman in the 9th inning. That makes it three straight wins for the purple pinstripes. Three straight might not sound like a big deal, but considering the fact that this team lost 11 straight earlier this month, three...

Rockies' Arenado has All-Star-caliber day in Cincinnati

With the Rockies playing in Cincinnati on Monday, Nolan Arenado made a case for being back in that city for the All-Star Game in July.Arenado went 3 for 4 including an RBI single in the first inning and a solo home run in the fourth. The one at bat he didn’t get a hit was a sacrifice fly in the ninth which scored the go-ahead run for the Rockies in their victory over the Reds.Of...

JABO: Troy Tulowitzki is More Aggressive, Less Productive

Troy Tulowitzki has been in the news lately because of his desire to be traded away from Colorado (and then his desire not to be), but less publicized is the fact that he’s also in the midst of one of the least productive offensive stretches of his career. His above average walk/low strikeout plate approach has […]

Bet on Bettis; Chad gives the Colorado Rockies a great outing

  Just when things didn’t seem like they could get any worse, the Colorado Rockies starting pitching revived itself.

On Sunday it was Chad Bettis’ turn. The former high-prospect who struggled as a starter...

Will The Real Carlos Gonzalez Please Stand Up

The Colorado Rockies are struggling as is their 5-tool right-fielder Carlos Gonzalez. Cargo is barely batting over the “Mendoza Line” after 40 games into the 2015 season as fans and poolies alike search for answers. When healthy, Gonzalez is an integral part of the Rockies offensive cog and one of the premier talents in the game. The 29-year old Gonzalez has experienced a litany...

Colorado Rockies win one, lose one in long day at Coors Field

  Everyone in Colorado is sick of the rain. Anyone whose job is at Coors Field has to be dreaming of a vacation to the desert. On Saturday at Coors Field, the Colorado Rockies finished their doubleheader with the San Francisco Giants at 11:52 pm, picking up a victory on the back-end of the twin bill. The two games couldn’t have been any different. The first was a typical Coors...

Axford shutting the door Rockies since Ottavino went down

Despite closer Adam Ottavino going down to Tommy John surgery, the Rockies seem to have found a very capable replacement in John Axford. The right-hander is 5-for-5 in save opportunities, including three since Ottavino was placed on the disabled list on April 27. Axford has only given up one run and five hits in eight innings pitched. Rox Pile points out that none of the five hits...

Colorado Rockies: Will Tulo Stay?

Troy Tulowitzki The Colorado Rockies stand at the bottom of the NL West with no answer to their many struggles. As the front office and coaching staff try to figure out ways to improve the roster, one idea that comes to mind is starting from scratch and rebuilding from the ground up. What would be the first step for the Rockies in this situation you ask? Surprisingly, finding a...

What can MLB teams offer for Troy Tulowitzki?

Some news-that-isn’t-really-news came out yesterday: Troy Tulowitzki will not demand a trade from the Rockies. After meeting with his agent, he decided against trying to force their hand, and will continue to play with the Rockies until they decide to trade him on their own timeline. But that is why this news isn’t really news, […]

Carlos Gonzalez: From potential MVP to potential albatross

The Rockies had a chance to trade Carlos Gonzalez before season started. In fact they’ve had many chances over the last couple of years. Or at the very least they could have tried. They haven’t finished above .500 since 2010 (83-79) so it’s not like they kept him because they were in the midst of a playoff push. Now it looks like CarGo isn’t going anywhere but down. If...
