(Let us know how you liked this new audio format in the comment section) “Be careful what you wish for” is a common idiom with a second half generally forgotten.  At the ballpark, the baseball idiom by which we should all remember and abide is “Careful what you talk about, lest it come true.” I nearly learned the hard way…...

If you haven’t been paying close enough attention to the Colorado Rockies, you’ve missed a lot of great baseball. For any hysteria about this year’s team failing to be as good as last year, consider this: Colorado’s record was also 30-27 on June 1, 2018. After starting the year 3-12, the Rockies are 27-15 since April 14, good for the…...

The storyline sounds familiar: a young starting pitcher with promising skills set to become the Rockies undeniable ace loses command on abilities and gets sent to the minors in order to recapture his magic. This year’s version pertains to Kyle Freeland. After finishing 4th in Cy Young Award voting in 2018, the 26-year-old hurler now sits at a 7.13 ERA after…

DENVER – Jeff Hoffman may not have recorded a quality start Wednesday night, but he came darn close and bested the Diamondbacks Robbie Ray through the first five innings to get the Rockies back to .500 for the first time since March 31. It was hard to predict which team had the upper hand between these division rivals. Robbie Ray…...

During a brief series at Fenway Park two weeks ago, the Colorado Rockies had an opportunity to steal a two-game sweep from the reigning World Series Champion Boston Red Sox. Colorado had taken the first game even after striking out a club record 21 times over nine innings, 17 of which came during the first seven innings against perennial Cy…...

DENVER – Anyone reviewing box scores for the Albuquerque Isotopes earlier this month would have noticed some excellent stat lines for top prospect Brendan Rodgers in the days before his call-up to the Colorado Rockies. On May 13, Rodgers notched four hits and two runs batted in during an 8-7 loss to Washington Nationals affiliate Fresno. On May 14, he…...

DENVER – The German Márquez Show at Coors Field was received with two rousing ovations from the 46,815 in attendance on Sunday. During his two-act performance, the Venezuelan offered quality both on the mound and at the plate for much of the game. But the drama played out over three acts, ending in triumph for the hometown heroes when Tony…...

DENVER – When Kyle Freeland left Saturday’s game with a 6.71 ERA, it was highest earned run average since the first outing of his 2018 season. The biggest difference between those figures: his 6.75 ERA on April 3rd last year came in just 5.1 innings while the entirety his 2019 ERA has been over 56.1 innings. The biggest issue for…

Built in 1912 on a small piece of wetland, known as a fen, betwixt the streets of Lansdowne, Van Ness, Jersey and Brookline Avenue and opened just days after the tragic sinking of the RMS Titanic, Fenway Park is the oldest and most iconic ballpark in the majors. Home to the Green Monster, a mammoth wall stationed just 310 feet…...

DENVER – When the pitching rotation for this series showed Antonio Senzatela for Sunday’s start, it seemed divine intervention for the young man who had lost his mother to cancer in 2016 less than a year before he’d reach the majors. Senzatela gave up a double to Machado in the first before shutting down the extra-base hits for the remainder…...

DENVER – If you’ve watched enough Rockies games this season, the odds suggest you’ve seen a player or two reach into their back pocket and pull out a note card. Simply put, the laminated cards pertain to defensive alignments for each batter in the opposing lineup. And though these placements are based upon results of countless at-bats culled together by…...

DENVER – When the city of Denver woke up this morning, the possibilities of the Giants-Rockies game this afternoon was in serious jeopardy. What no one could have imagined was San Francisco first baseman Tyler Austin swatting two home runs and driving in six runs, one side erasing a seven run deficit, and a ninth inning with the tying run at…
