On the farm: Colorado Rockies prospect profile Sam Moll

  The next prospect to look at is lefty Sam Moll. 5’11″ 185 pound Sam Moll doesn’t appear on too many Colorado Rockies top prospects lists (23rd on but that’s because he has dealt with injuries since being drafted in the third round of the 2013 draft (77th overall). It should be noted that scouts pegged Moll to go higher in the 2013 draft (maybe even first round...

Nolan Arenado has all the makings of a megastar

Nolan Arenado won’t know for at least a month whether or not he won the National League MVP, but for the first time in a long time Rockies fans have something to possibly be excited about in November. Arenado will most certainly receive some hardware one the Fall Classic has crowned a 2015 champion – he’ll earn his third consecutive Gold Glove award – but his MVP candidacy...

Would anyone care if the Colorado Rockies went away?

The Colorado Rockies lost 96 games and 94 games the last two seasons. They haven’t been to the playoffs since 2009. And, (maybe the biggest indictment) they’ve barely been relevant in this town past the All-star break the last five years. Outside of some great individual performances there hasn’t been much to cheer for at 20th and Blake. After opening day most people forget...

Rockies bid individual farewells to individual fans (video)

With the 2015 season now officially in the books at 20th and Blake, the Rockies front office can turn its attention to fixing what led to a tie for the fifth-worst record in franchise history. (We know it wasn’t the bats – the Rockies were the No. 5 team in runs scored in all of baseball and the best in National League.) So while Jeff Bridich and the rest of the Rockies brass...

Ray looks to cool Rockies' bats in series opener

The Colorado Rockies have scored the most runs in the NL, have the league's second-best batting average and need Carlos Gonzalez to hit one more homer to make him and Nolan Arenado the first teammates with 40 apiece in nine years. None of that has prevented Colorado from sitting at the bottom of the NL West finishing out a third 90-loss season in four years. The Rockies look to win...

Projecting Rockies Call-Ups Cristhian Adames & Tom Murphy

At 60-84, the Rockies are not merely way out of contention, but also mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. The team’s in full on rebuild mode these days, and simply put, there aren’t all that many exciting players on their roster. However, they’ve called up a couple of interesting hitters this September who could ultimately develop into useful contributors and help out...

It is a chance to book better winter destination vacations for some, emptier seats for most and a chance for reflection for all. For the Colorado Rockies, admittedly the expectations were not high. The rhetoric has been...

More than anything else with the 2015 Colorado Rockies, I’m surprised they weren’t the first team eliminated from playoff contention. I think that about sums things up – the same problems that have been prevalent in Colorado for years are still around. Preseason Prediction: Chances are if Dinger was going to be arrested for not wearing pants, it would’ve happened by now...
