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 – The Colorado Rockies have never come into a season with the kind of expectations they – and just about everyone else – placed on themselves coming into the 2019 season. This is one of the many reasons why an eight-game losing streak, more or less out of the gate, became so magnified outside the clubhouse. Inside of it,…...

DENVER – Charlie Blackmon waited until his 82nd at bat of the season to hit his first home run of the season and his timing couldn’t have been any better. Down 3-2 in the 12th inning with two outs and two strikes, the man known as Chuck Nasty added his second walk-off home run to his already impressive resumé on…...

The Colorado Rockies have, at least for the moment, rediscovered themselves. Getting their third straight phenomenal starting pitching performance, this time by Jon Gray, they got the offense they needed from their star and a couple of young players looking more and more comfortable getting regular playing time to cruise to a 8-2 win over the San Diego Padres. It’s…...

With a losing streak that reached eight games Saturday – and twelve-of-thirteen – the relative highlights for the Colorado are few and far between at this point. Unable to score in the first inning once again, playing a majority of the game from behind, an adequate performance from starting pitcher Kyle Freeland was far from enough as the offense continued…

The Colorado Rockies extended their losing streak to seven games but it took the San Francisco Giants 18 innings to put them away in a marathon gut-punch loss. Of course, the game ended on a tormenting play when Chris Iannetta should have been able to make a force out at home (and maybe even a double play to send it…...

Just when it seemed the presence of Mr. Barrels would be missing on the 2019 Colorado Rockies, an unforseen injury has brought him back with his brothers. After a delayed start to 2018 that limited Daniel Murphy to 91 games because of knee surgery, the first baseman will now deal with his first stint on the Injured List with Colorado…...

Before the Rockies got a chance to really display their new $24MM purchase, an unfortunate injury will force them put him back in the display case for another day joining reliever Chris Rusin and starting pitcher Antonio Senzatela. Signed in large part because of his postseason resume and swing that plays perfectly for the confines of Coors Field, Daniel Murphy…

Garret Hampson stood at his locker-for-the-day in Albuquerque after what proved to be a remarkably fun exhibition game for everyone involved. Speaking about the finer points of his game and certain details that might have gone unnoticed over his last couple of tuneups, Hampson noted himself and Ryan McMahon as part of why he believes the team can compete for…...

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz – The Colorado Rockies have become famous, or perhaps a bit infamous depending on your disposition, for a slow and steady approach when it comes to the wheeling and dealing side of the business. It’s ironic that General Manager Jeff Bridich has made fewer trades than any other GM in MLB since taking over the job with the…...

Scottsdale – A message was sent loud and clear the day the New York Yankees signed DJ LeMahieu without any resistance from the Colorado Rockies; It’s time for a new era in Denver at second base. The writing had been on the wall for some time, arguably reaching all the way back to when the club inked Charlie Blackmon to…...

The Colorado Rockies have one week of baseball games (that do not count) in the books. While it is far too early to be drawing any kind of conclusions, it’s still worth looking at some of the early storylines that have begun to emerge. Here’s what you need to know about the first week of Rockies spring training baseball. At…...

Colorado Rockies manager Bud Black usually declines to speak at great length about players who have yet to debut in MLB. But he also understands the obvious potential of the top prospect in the organization, Brendan Rodgers. Furthermore, it has become clear as the offseason has transitioned into the spring season, that the Rockies plan to replace their best second…...

The Sheriff of Swattingham is wearing purple once more. The Colorado Rockies defeated the Kansas City Royals 12-5 in their third spring training game on a beautiful Monday afternoon. Raimel Tapia set the pace for a big run-scoring day on the very first pitch, ripping it over the wall in right for his first hit and homer of the spring.…...

DENVER – Fans across the Rocky Mountain region have been making their personal fantasy starting lineups for Colorado since the Daniel Murphy signing took place and pushed Ian Desmond off first base and into the final spot in the outfield. With Nolan Arenado, Charlie Blackmon, Trevor Story, and David Dahl returning to their respective starting positions and each night’s starting catcher…...

For their entire history until the moment that DJ LeMahieu arrived in 2012, the second base position had been a revolving door of question marks for the Colorado Rockies. Over the next seven seasons, LeMahieu emerged as easily the most prolific and beloved player to ever man the position for the franchise. He began slowly at first, surprising most of…...

Las Vegas – The debate surrounding the Colorado Rockies and their perceived lack of willingness to put faith in their young core has always been an odd one. The club gave Trevor Story a starting gig at a premium position on the first day of 2016 and haven’t looked back since. They have stacked their entire starting rotation with homegrown products…...
