Built to outlast

The Rockies, when you add them up as a whole, are terrible. But they do have some good players, like Jose Reyes, Carlos Gonzalez, and maybe even their prized rookie pitcher Jon Gray. That group managed to keep things tight with the Pirates for most of the way, and you wondered if they were an unlucky break or a rough inning away from losing a really bad game at home. But you didn’t really...

Gray battles, Cargo homers, Bullpen blows it as Colorado Rockies lose

  Rockies drop game late to the Pirates 5-3 as Jon Gray goes 4.1 IP with a career high 6 K Surely after four major league starts, it’s determined whether a pitcher will be successful or not.  At least that was the narrative of Rockies fans after Jon Gray’s last start where he imploded in 1.2 innings against the Mets.  After a decent bounce back start against the Pirates tonight...

The Rockies come to town

The drill for this series is much the same as the last: the Pirates are playing bad teams at a point in the season where wins are at a premium. There is no reason for the Pirates to not win two or three games against the Rockies at PNC Park this weekend, and if they’re lucky, doing that will make up some ground on the Cardinals for them. Francisco Liriano starts for the Bucs tonight...

Weighing Arenado’s chances at three in a row

The Colorado Rockies finally locked up win No. 50, the last MLB club to accomplish the feat in 2015, on the season on Tuesday night against the Atlanta Braves thanks in part to some nifty glove work by third baseman Nolan Arenado. The wins may have come few and far between for the Rockies this year, but great defensive play by Arenado is one thing the Rockies have been able to depend...

DJ LeMahieu hits in every spot in order, makes history

Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss finally got the opportunity to cross off a feat he's been wanting to accomplish for a while: bat second baseman DJ LeMahieu in each spot in the batting order. LeMahieu's versatility as a batter due to his speed, batting for average, and run production, has allowed Weiss the flexibility to bat him wherever in the lineup. Heading into this week...

Colorado Rockies bullpen has something to prove in win over Braves

  The Colorado Rockies starting pitcher didn’t get through the 6th inning. Now fill in the next sentence yourself. Typically, the next sentence would be: Rockies bullpen gives up several runs in the loss. Instead, the next sentence comes as a surprise to Rockies fans. It read as follows: The Rockies bullpen records four shutout innings, completing a scoreless series in Atlanta...

One-on-one with Carlos Gonzalez

Carlos Gonzalez is arguably The Rockies best player. The 2-time all-star, has won 3 Gold Gloves and a batting title. He’s healthy now, and his play reflects that. He was disappointed to see Troy Tulowitzki traded, but understands it’s a business. He wants to play in Denver, and the children of Colorado matter to him. His charity work continues to demonstrate that. He shares his...

It’s a long road to Rock Bottom

Mom… Dad… Are we there yet? How much longer? When will we get there? Like a family truckster endlessly driving into the miserable abyss, the Colorado Rockies are in the midst of what seems to be the longest summer trip ever. Dick Monfort and Walt Weiss are taking turns driving and riding shotgun, while fans and players alike are piled in the back – whining, whimpering and tortured...

Ugly gets uglier as Colorado Rockies season keeps getting worse

  The Colorado Rockies hold the distinction as only one of three Major League franchises that have never lost 100 games. Three weeks ago, it looked like that mark would stay in-tact. Instead, the Rockies have gone from crashing and burning in another terrible season, to dumping kerosene on the fire and trying to incinerate anything remaining. On Monday, for the 12th time in the...

Eager to win, Jose Reyes hints he wants to be traded from Rockies

Not long after he touched down in Colorado after being sent to the Rockies in a trade-deadline deal that sent Troy Tulowitzki to the Blue Jays, Jose Reyes has delicately expressed his desire to make his stay in Colorado a short one. His sentiments became more direct over the weekend, and now Reyes' opinions on being a member of the Rockies are unmistakable. "I'm at the point in my...

Jose Reyes hints he wants out of Colorado

    Jose Reyes has spent less than a month with the Colorado Rockies, and it sounds like he has already had enough. Over the weekend, Reyes expressed frustration over the fact that he is inching toward the end of his career and playing for a team that is nowhere close to being a contender. “You come from a ballclub that was competing for a spot in the playoffs,” the 32...

The Winding Road to a Normal Carlos Gonzalez Season

Troy Tulowitzki felt 'blindsided' by trade to Blue Jays

Troy Tulowitzki knew he could be traded before Friday’s deadline, but the former Colorado Rockies shortstop apparently expected a little more warning than what he received. According to Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post, Tulowitzki heard of the deal with the Toronto Blue Jays when he was removed during the ninth inning of Monday’s game against the Chicago Cubs. Per Saunders...

Trading Troy Tulowitzki begins Rockies’ much-needed reconstruction project

This cannot have been how Colorado Rockies fans imagined it would go down. Troy Tulowitzki being traded wasn’t supposed to be a late-night occurrence, happening when many of us were sleeping. (Even in the Mountain time zone, though the shortstop was pulled in the ninth inning of the Rockies’ 9-8 loss to the Cubs on Monday.) This was supposed to be a trade we all saw coming, that...

Jeff Hoffman, Miguel Castro and Jose Reyes are three of the four players the Colorado Rockies are receiving in return for Troy Tulowitzki — a haul that has left many people disappointed so far.

Used CarGo for sale – could Carlos Gonzalez get dealt this week?

Back in mid-May I wrote about the prospect of trading Carlos Gonzalez. The point of that article was to suggest that the Colorado Rockies had missed out on their chance to trade the one-time MVP caliber outfielder. As we are now just one week away from the trade deadline CarGo’s name is popping up in rumors again. However I’m not sure enough has happened to change my mind about...
