Chad Bettis has been destroyed by the Rockies. There are 53 mountains in Colorado that are over 14,000 feet. On July 22nd, after another blown lead by the bullpen, it feels as if the Colorado Rockies have been on a 14,000 foot slide down the standings. After Tuesday night’s loss, the club has lost 24-of their last-28 games. In 2007,…...

Dick Monfort If one thing is certain, it is that the Colorado Rockies don’t like bad publicity. They get upset when sports talk radio shows rip on them, and they don’t like it when the Denver Post says anything negative. That was the main reason why I wrote about an initiative that might have a sliver of a chance of…...

Dick Monfort often gets labeled as extremely loyal. Stubbornness is often mislabeled as loyalty. Let’s get something straight, Dick Monfort may be the most loyal person on the face of the earth, but what is going on with the Colorado Rockies owner has nothing to do with loyalty, it has everything to do with stubbornness. Throughout the P.R. disaster that…...

Brett Anderson didn’t provide the outing the Rockies were hoping for. That couldn’t have come soon enough. The Colorado Rockies skidded into the All-Star break with a terrible series against the Minnesota Twins, a lowly American League team that has nothing to look forward to after the All-Star break themselves. However, the Rockies were soundly defeated twice, looking completely outmatched.…...

The All Star break can’t come soon enough for the Rockies. The bell is about to ring on the first half of the season for the Colorado Rockies. This has been a heated week for the Rockies. It has been so heated, that the results on the field have been largely ignored. The sparring between fans and owner Dick Monfort…...

Jorge De La Rosa was brilliant once again for the Rockies. Time heals all wounds. That should be the greatest fear for all fans of the Colorado Rockies. In a week where Rockies owner Dick Monfort was exposed to the wrath of the fans, a week in which he had to finally stare at the reality that the status quo…...

The message to Dick Monfort is loud and clear. Don’t tread on Colorado Rockies fans. Fans of the Rockies are often ridiculed. They are often told that they are more concerned with the social aspect of baseball than the actual results on the field. If the last two days are any indication, Rockies fans aren’t going down without a fight.…...

Dick Monfort is being forced to understand Rockies fans frustration. The statement has been made, and it seems like the message is clear. Patrick Saunders sat down with Dick Monfort on Tuesday afternoon to do an interview in which Saunders asked some very pointed questions. Monfort was gracious enough to do the interview, but the results were probably not what…...

Dick Monfort seems like a very nice guy. He just doesn’t know baseball. On the field, the Colorado Rockies won their fourth game in 22 chances. That alone should be enough to celebrate. However, more pressing news came as Dick Monfort broke his silence and sat down with Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post. The interview was both revealing, damning,…...

Tyler Matzek was better than his line suggested on Monday. Apparently Major League Baseball likes to torture Colorado Rockies fans. Down 6-1 with no chance to catch up to the lowly San Diego Padres at Coors Field on Monday, the rains came down and it looked like fans might be spared the torture of watching the final two innings of…...

This is what the Rockies have successfully made fans care about. Admit it, you don’t really care anymore. What used to anger fans of the Colorado Rockies rarely causes so much as a shrug of the shoulders anymore. What used to be appointment television, where a fan would set his or her day around watching the Rockies game has turned…...

Dan O’Dowd might be effective with some help. I admit it, I am a person who believes in black and white. I am opinionated, and it is hard to convince me that I am wrong. Those opinions also make me passionate. If I believe in something, it takes strong evidence to sway me otherwise. For years I was a Dan…...

Dan O’Dowd should be selling used cars. Dan O’Dowd might be the best salesperson in the state of Colorado. Why? Because many of the most ardent fans of the Colorado Rockies aren’t just trusting him, they are buying everything he says hook, line and sinker. Open up a new tab in the browser and take a look over on Twitter.…...

O’Dowd can’t lose his job. The Colorado Rockies have hit a new low. Annually, when the end of July rolls around, the eyes of Colorado shift away from the boys of summer and fully focus on the training camp activities of their beloved Denver Broncos. It really doesn’t matter if the Rockies are in great shape or if they have…...

Don’t expect these guys to go anywhere in the offseason. What is left to be said? At the risk of completely repeating every piece that has been written about these brutal Colorado Rockies throughout June, there simply isn’t anything left to be talked about. On Wednesday, despite having their fifth starter from Colorado Springs on the mound making his big…...

Christian Bergman was great in his Major League debut. If the Colorado Rockies stay healthy. If this team finds a way to keep guys off of the disabled list. Last year was sabotaged by injuries. This year they are going to be healthy. Those are all things that the typical Rockies fan gets used to hearing every year. Those types…...

Rockies fans want the old Rex Brothers back. Forget it, pack it in, the Colorado Rockies are done. Too harsh? Prove me wrong. I’d love to see someone give a solid reason as to why this Rockies team has a fighting chance to crawl back into the race. Sure, they are just two games under .500 after the latest disaster,…...

The Rockies come home to a skeptical fan base. This isn’t how the Colorado Rockies wanted to start the season. On Thursday afternoon in Miami, the Rockies blew a three-run lead and lost to the hometown Marlins in front of about 35 screaming fans. The Rockies bullpen–specifically Matt Belisle–the Rockies righty faced eight batters in the 8th inning, allowing four…...

Bill Geivett will take his turn with the firing squad on Tuesday. The Colorado Rockies announced on social media sites that assistant general manager Bill Geivett will hop on Twitter on Tuesday to answer fan questions. Earlier in the offseason, owner Dick Monfort fielded questions in the same manner. To say the questioning was embarrassing would be a huge understatement.…...

Eddie Butler is one reason for Rockies fans to be excited. Hope springs eternal. Something about those words gives fans of the 29 teams that didn’t win the World Series a reason to be excited every February. Those are the words that Colorado Rockies fans have had to live by for a very long time. The Rockies are the epitome…...
