Nolan Arenado can hit too. Just in case his bat got jealous of the attention that his glove got on Tuesday night, Arenado decided that he would show off his offensive skills as well. With two outs in the bottom of the 1st inning and two on, the Rockies looked like they might start the night leaving a golden opportunity...

Garrett Grayson may be the best known former Colorado State football player who will likely be drafted into the NFL at the end of this month, but there’s another big name who has been making the rounds. According to Stephen Cohen (among others), tackle Ty Sambrailo visited the Seattle Seahawks, a team looking for a replacement to the departed Max…...

Holy Noly! Nolan Arenado made a video game like circus catch in the 8th inning of last night’s Rockies victory over the Giants. Your browser does not support iframes. Mere moments later, Charlie Blackmon made a leaping catch to retire Buster Posey to end the inning and give Rafael Betancourt the hold before Ottavino slammed the door shut in the…...

Ryan Clady is the lone Bronco left from the Mike Shanahan era. Clady was drafted by the Broncos in 2008 and spent his rookie season under Shanahan’s zone blocking scheme. “It’s comforting. It was a long time ago, so it’s a little different.” Clady said. “I’m just used to the old scheme. It’s comforting. I think I can handle it…...

Is it time to get excited about the Colorado Rockies yet? After a 4-1 victory in San Francisco, one thing is clear; even if these Rockies don’t contend for the playoffs, they certainly are a fun team to watch. Skip ahead to the bottom of the 8th inning. After Rafael Betancourt uncharacteristically gave up a walk after a base hit,…...

Dalyn Dawkins may not be a big back, but he plays with the heart of a lion. Dawkins, a redshirt sophomore running back for the Colorado State Rams football team, sounds small at 5’9” and 180 pounds, but he carries a load behind him. “Pound for pound he’s probably the most physical guy on our football team,” Rams head coach…...

John Elway doesn’t take his position lightly. As the Denver Broncos General Manager, Elway’s an exemplary leader and his competitive drive is as legendary as “The Drive.” Last year around this time, Elway announced his team is “Chasing Lombardi,” meaning they’re doing everything in their power to compete for a third Vince Lombardi Trophy. It can be argued (and was…...

Yesterday, Emmanuel Sanders announced he’ll be moving to the slot in three-receiver sets for the Denver Broncos. Of course, it comes as no surprise the void is present with Wes Welker no longer being part of the squad. At his height in Denver, Welker helped make the Broncos’ offense the highest-scoring, first down machine it grew into in 2013. He…...

Yesterday we took a look at the 2009 draft class for the Colorado Avalanche and the franchise-changing power a single great day at the draft can possess. Today, we’re going to delve into the draft class that immediately followed it to provide a stark contrast to how the fortunes can change so quickly. Unlike in 2009, the Avalanche were…...

John Axford was placed on family medical emergency list by the Rockies sunday so he could tend to his 2 year old son Jameson. Colorado added RHP Scott Oberg to take Axford’s spot on the active roster. Axford’s son was bit by a rattlesnake in late March, and has been battling complications from it ever since. I’d also like to…...

One last hurrah. One final invasion from enemy fans. One more swan song on a season where the excuses piled up faster than the wins.

It had to end sooner or later. The Colorado Rockies surprised everyone when they started the year 4-0, including a sweep of the Brewers in Miller Park to start the year. However, on Saturday night, the Cubs ended the party, taking advantage of a shaky Kyle Kendrick. The Rockies lost 9-5, picking up their first loss of the 2015 season.…...
