Colorado Rockies continue struggling at Coors Field

  It’s tough to put lipstick on a pig. If you put lipstick on Dinger, you still have an overweight purple dinosaur. Anyone who has watched the Colorado Rockies and follows their minor league system knows that the 2015 season is all about allowing new general manager Jeff Bridich to get his fingers dirty and start cleaning up the mess that was left for him by the previous regime...

De La Rosa makes history as McKenry delivers the win for the Colorado Rockies

  The story of Michael McKenry is an interesting one for the Colorado Rockies. On Thursday at a gloomy and dreary Coors Field, McKenry provided the ray of sunshine for the Rockies. He broke a 3-3 tie in the 5th inning with a two-run blast to left field off of Phillies starter Jerome Williams to give the Rockies a 5-3 lead that they wouldn’t relinquish. He was a top prospect coming...

Eddie Butler has a rough night and Colorado Rockies offense can’t hit

  More of the same for the Colorado Rockies. It has been discussed at length, debated and argued. The Rockies and their struggles with pitching are something that no one can quite figure out. On Wednesday night at a miserable Coors Field, where the temperatures were below 40 degrees with a steady mist, the Rockies once again saw their pitching struggles come back to bite them. This...

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...

Rockies recall Brandon Barnes, option Drew Stubbs

The Colorado Rockies recalled outfielder Brandon Barnes from triple-A Albuquerque on Wednesday, reports Nick Groke of the Denver Post. Center fielder Drew Stubbs was optioned to triple-A in a corresponding move. Stubbs, a solid defensive outfielder, has been wildly disapointing at the plate in the first month and a half of the season. The 30-year-old veteran is hitting just .118...

There’s hope for the Rockies… in Cincinnati

Thanks to Tuesday’s nail-biter over the Phillies, the Rockies are now (at least temporarily) duking it out with Oakland for the undesirable mantle of “fewest wins in baseball.” At 14-22, a full nine games back in the division almost a week before Memorial Day, hope is fading fast at 20th and Blake. And having lost two key contributors already this month – Adam Ottavino for...

Rockies striking out at historic pace

The Rockies picked up a rare win on Tuesday, but they still struck out 10 times. The team has now had double digit strikeout figures in seven consecutive games -- including a franchise record 18 times against Clayton Kershaw and five Dodger relievers last Friday. Major leaguers strike out more nowadays than they used to, but the way Rockies hitters are whiffing is high even by today’s...

Dodgers 1, Rockies 0: A Mike Bolsinger-Kyle Kendrick pitching duel happened

The Dodgers scored a single run off Kyle Kendrick, which tells you that they deserved to lose. Granted, it could’ve easily been five or six runs had a few hard hit balls fallen or a few of those long fly balls had a few more feet to them, but still … it’s Kyle Kendrick and they got three hits on the day. Three hits. Yasmani Grandal‘s RBI single driving in Adrian Gonzalez...

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, […]

Do The New York Mets Really Need Troy Tulowitzki?

Troy Tulowitzki is a perennial MVP candidate when healthy. The Colorado Rockies have fallen on hard times. They started out well and as the season turned into week #2 back in April, the wheels fell off the train…and quickly. The Rockies currently sit at 11-19, good for last place in the N.L West. With the struggles of Carlos Gonzalez and the slow start from Troy Tulowitzki...

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...

Colorado Rockies Failing Miserably

The poor Colorado Rockies seem to be suffering from the same old story this season – the hitters hit and the pitchers can’t pitch – although I hate generalizing a team based upon recent history. Everyone knew they’d hit, pitching though was the question mark and yet I liked the Rockies attempt to develop pitching from within. It’s still early for us to write off their young...

Troy Tulowitzki could ask for trade from Colorado Rockies

For more than nine years, Troy Tulowitzki has been the face of the Colorado Rockies, but now there is a chance the 30-year-old will wind up playing elsewhere. On Tuesday reports surfaced claiming the four-time All-Star was considering asking the only franchise he has known to trade him. The Rockies are a mess this year, and entering Tuesday night’s action they are 11-17 and have...

Angels vs. Rockies Series Preview: Precious CarGo

WATCH: Nolan Arenado makes catch of the year candidate

Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado made the catch of the year thus far in the eighth inning of Tuesday’s game against the Giants. Gregor Blanco hit a pop fly into foul territory which seemed destined for the stands. But Arenado stayed with it all the way. He tracked the ball down and made an amazing catch on the run. The toughest part was keeping the ball in his glove...
