ROCKIES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Brett Anderson Calls Out Former MLB Pitcher on Twitter

Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Brett Anderson is known for being quite the entertaining tweeter, but he took this a bit overboard on Tuesday when going after former Houston Astros pitcher Lucas Harrell. I follow Anderson on Twitter, and he’s usually good for a conversation or two throughout the week. With that said, this was completely unprofessional from a pitcher who is a...

Are the Colorado Rockies making the right moves?

Michael Cuddyer is no longer a member of the Colorado Rockies. The seasoned veteran who revitalized his career in the purple and silver was inked by the New York Mets yesterday. With a two-year, $21 million deal, Cuddyer’s departure was a win-win for him and the Colorado Rockies. Despite Cuddyer’s .332/.376/.579 for the Rockies in 2014, the injury-prone veteran was no longer...

Juan Nicasio, Fascinating Relief Project

If you haven’t been particularly excited by Joel Peralta, Kyle Jensen, Mike Bolsinger and now Juan Nicasio, acquired from the Rockies this afternoon, you could probably be forgiven. None are going to sell tickets. Several looked pretty bad in the more traditional stats, and so you get why these minor moves have been difficult for some to swallow. But all have something to like...

Dodgers get Juan Nicasio from Rockies as potential bullpen piece

Andrew Friedman and Farhan Zaidi are the kings of the minor trade thus far, as the duo made another deal on Monday. The Dodgers acquired right-handed pitcher Juan Nicasio from the Rockies for a player to be named later (boo) or cash considerations (yay). Nicascio, 28, has been a starting pitcher for most of his career, and the numbers have been downright ugly. He owns a career 5...

What Are The Chances Carlos Gonzalez Is A Cardinal By Opening Day?

Not good. But let’s go through this anyway. PROS: The last 2 seasons prior to 2014, Gonzalez was an All-Star and Gold Glove winner. He’s a corner outfielder. Under contract for 3 more years @ 53M total. Career .520 SLG. CONS:  He ended last season under the knife to repair a torn patella tendon. Compares his flashy play to Ricky Henderson. He’ll command a profusion of prospects...

The Colorado Rockies need pitching

Pitching has never been more important in Major League Baseball, and right now the Rockies are the worst at it in the entire league, squandering the tremendous offensive abilities on the roster.The contrast between the hitting and pitching of the 2014 Rockies was stark, so much so that Gambling...

The Rockies new GM delivers on first move

If you’re keeping score at home, go ahead and put Rockies new general manager Jeff Bridich down for a single. It was a slap single to right, maybe even an infield hit, but nonetheless, Bridich is safe at first. Sure, Bridich doesn’t really “hit” per se, but this was his first move, his first test, his first anything. And it was subtle. One might argue that Bridich really...

Report: Mets, Rockies have talked Tulowitzki trade

By now it’s well known that Troy Tulowitzki is not happy about the direction of the Colorado Rockies and is looking to move on from the only organization he has suited up for. Barring something drastic changing on that front, Tulo will likely be calling another city home next season. And fresh off signing Michael Cuddyer to a two-year contract, the New York Mets have reportedly...

Looking at potential Rockies-Indians trade fits

For a bad team, the Colorado Rockies have been in the news a lot of late. They made a change at the top with the retirement of former Cleveland Indians front office member Dan O’Dowd. In his fifteen years as general manager the Rockies made the playoffs only twice and spent the last four years under .500. Their minor league system has improved, but it has been a bad run for the...

Tulo trade talks return in Colorado

The Troy Tulowitzki trade talks have started early. Major-league sources announced Wednesday that the Colorado Rockies were willing to listen to offers for their all-star shortstop. There were also rumors that Carlos Gonzalez was also a name they were willing to listen to offers for. Apparently the Rockies are “keeping their eyes and ears open” for any potential deals that could...

Are the Rockies ready to rebuild?

With A Crowded Outfield, Does Colorado Move Carlos Gonzalez?

David Schoenfield of ESPN speculates that with Michael Cuddyer expected to accept his $15.3 million qualifying offer, the Colorado Rockies now find themselves with a glut in the outfield. So by giving Cuddyer that offer, the Rockies are betting on his return and given that Justin Morneau is still under contract, Cuddyer will play in right field the majority of the time. “The Rockies...

Let’s try to rationalize Michael Cuddyer’s qualifying offer

Monday evening was the deadline for teams to hand out qualifying offers to teams, and one offer really stood out from the bunch – the Rockies offering Michael Cuddyer. Cuddyer was the 2013 NL batting champion, but he played in just 49 games in 2014 thanks to three different DL stints because of three different injuries. So naturally, Colorado dishes out the qualifying offer, despite...

Hey Rockies, don’t rid of Rosario just yet

Pitching woes and the Colorado Rockies have become synonymous. It has undoubtedly been the biggest weak spot of the franchise since its berth two decades ago. And watching Madison Bumgarner single handedly win the World Series for the San Francisco Giants was evidence of how important pitching is to a team’s post season success. But recent talks in Denver have many demanding a...

What’s in Store for the Rockies this Offseason? Part I

The Rockies offseason began in relative upheaval when long-tenured GM Dan O’Dowd and Director of Major League Operations Bill Geivett resigned.  For a front office that had been notably resistant to change, it will be interesting to see what direction new GM Jeff Bridich takes the franchise. Bridich hopes to bring a breath of fresh air to a Rockies franchise looking to reach the...

Failure to make changes might hurt the Colorado Rockies more than they think

Dick Monfort simply doesn't get it.Dick Monfort is fiercely loyal. Nearly everyone agrees on that.That is what everyone says about the Colorado Rockies owner. That is why he hasn't done what the owners of 27 other teams have done, some several times, since he hired Dan O'Dowd to be the general manager of the Rockies.
