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...

Trade of Troy Tulowitzki still stings, even if it was inevitable for Colorado Rockies fans

  It’s not fun. This game we all love isn’t supposed to stab us in the back. The business side isn’t supposed to get in the way of the passion. Late on Monday night, the reality of the pain that comes with being a fan smacked fans of the Colorado Rockies hard. It was the first time pain like that was felt since nearly four years ago, when the club dealt Ubaldo Jimenez. With...

Rockies commemorate Butler’s baserunning blunder

The Rockies could laugh at pitcher Eddie Butler’s baserunning blunders on Friday night, but only well after the team had secured a win. In his first-ever time on base, Butler managed to stumble, not once, but twice, trying to score from second base after a double to the right-field corner by DJ LeMahieu in the bottom of the fifth. The Rockies eventually went on to win the game...

Importance of pitching on display as Colorado Rockies nearly shutout

  Going into Saturday night, the Colorado Rockies knew that they were going to have to get a great start from Chris Rusin to have a chance. That didn’t happen, as Rusin got beat up in the 3rd inning, giving up four runs. At that point, with Johnny Cueto on the mound for the Reds, the game was essentially over. In the end, the Rockies dropped the game 5-2 after a 9th inning rally...

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...

Weiss 'not sure' Morneau will return to Rockies this season

There is now a mere 13 days left until the Major League Baseball trade deadline, and it is crunch time for the teams that need impact acquisitions.
