Despite a cavalcade of incredibly entertaining postseason games, it has been a brutal and disastrous finish to the season for Major League Baseball in 2019. Scandals litter the headlines, calling into question some of the fundamental integrity of the game during a time when people across the globe are otherwise celebrating the World Series, the showcase of the very…

During the 2018-19 offseason, it seemed the only addition the Colorado Rockies made was Daniel Murphy at the cost of $24MM.  A more thorough examination suggests financial investments in the organization through new technology such as devices created by Rapsodo, in addition to a slew of renovations to Coors Field were set in motion when the team and the Metropolitan…...

Some of these stats involve advanced degrees in mathematics and formulas that…...

When Colorado was officially eliminated from the playoffs on September 12, it seemed as if this October would bring no joy to most Rockies enthusiasts in search of the next Tony Wolters’ game-winning hit.

DENVER – In order for a resurgent rebound in 2020, the Colorado Rockies should – under no circumstances – rely solely upon internal improvement.

And that is certainly true of the Colorado Rockies 2019 campaign. Both sides. There are a ton of positives to take away from this last place team. Plenty of young players emerged as…...
