DENVER – On a night when Kyle Freeland recaptured his brilliance at home and the Rockies took down the team with the best record in the National League, it was the return of Ryan McMahon that fans talked about as they exited the park. Freeland was wheelin’ and dealin’ when he took the mound Thursday night, setting the tone for…...

Eight days after signing a contract extension for five years, $43 million, German Marquez showed exactly why the consensus around these parts was that, despite him being just 24-years-old, the Colorado Rockies got an absolute steal. He is already the owner of some franchise and even MLB records for strikeouts and on Sunday, he may well have pitched the best…...

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…

In a way, it is to their credit that the Colorado Rockies managed to make the series opener with the Atlanta Braves a close game, but they could not finish off an inspiring rally and instead fell 3-8, more games under .500 (5) than they ever were in 2018. Kyle Freeland got off on the wrong foot and never found…...

It was the great misfortune for the Colorado Rockies to be matched up against the reigning, defending, and undisputed AL Cy Young Award winner Blake Snell on Tuesday night in Tampa. He was everything that title would suggest, producing a career-high 13 strikeouts against a Colorado Rockies offense that continues to search for answers in Florida. The boys in purple…...

With a 2-0 start to the 2019 season and their first consecutive victory at Marlins Park in the same calendar year, the Colorado Rockies have a lot of positives to reflect upon. Starting Pitching Opening Day ace Kyle Freeland was perfect going into the fourth inning, retiring eleven straight batters – four on strikeouts – to start the game. He…...

The Colorado Rockies looked every bit the complete team they hope to be in their first contest of 2019 against the Miami Marlins. Starter Kyle Freeland pitched well and deep into the game. The batting order got contributions up and down the lineup, the young players were pivotal, and the bullpen put the game away without much drama. Baseball is…...

On Saturday, the Rockies traded outfielder Mike Tauchman to the Yankees for pitcher Phillip Diehl. After spending the last two years as part of the 40-man roster and even making the Opening Day roster in 2018, Tauchman, 28, seemed blocked for playing time behind the likes of Charlie Blackmon, David Dahl and Raimel Tapia. Also, it’s becoming more clear that…...

It’s been an excellent spring season for just about every member of the Colorado Rockies pitching staff. Kyle Freeland talks about building on his incredible 2018 campaign, Jon Gray gets into the adjustments he has made, Tyler Anderson says he is feeling great, and Bryan Shaw discusses the increasing sharpness on his cutter and slider. Plus, top pitching prospect Peter…...

Scottsdale – “Chuck tracking down a bullet in the gap off of Contreras… Story making that grab… the double play… going out each inning after Lester shut us down… the adrenaline… when I think about it, my heart starts pumping a little bit.” For Kyle Freeland, the memories of the 2018 Wild Card game are more than a collection of…...

Scottsdale, AZ – The scene inside the Rockies clubhouse for Daniel Murphy’s arrival at the Salt River Fields baseball complex today was rather unlike his previous experiences in New York, Washington, D.C., and Chicago. When the veteran infielder first appeared in front of his locker, he was descended upon by a scrum of reporters totaling just three. The former Chicago…...

Back at the Winter Meetings in December, I asked Colorado Rockies GM Jeff Bridich a question about the possibility of extending some of his young players, buying out their arbitration years in a similar fashion to the way the club has in the past with players like Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez. Bridich understandably was reluctant to go into details…...

Scottsdale, AZ – Even outside of the excitement contained within Wednesday’s twenty-four hours of wall-to-wall sports coverage, it has been a rather good time to be a Colorado sports fans in the capital city. Between the acquisition of a quarterback via trade, the late-game tip-in winner with 0.3 seconds left on the clock, and the first pop of the catcher’s…...

DENVER – It can be easy to forget sometimes, especially these days, that Major League Baseball isn’t a video game. Or a fantasy sport. It’s the real deal. And in a new season of projections and speculations and declarations that some teams have definitively improved while others have assuredly gotten worse, the truth of where wins come from over the…...

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 years – 25 of them in fact – hot stove conversation around the Colorado Rockies always had something to do with starting pitching. But not this offseason. No, during this break between the 2018 and 2019 seasons, all the chatter, rumors, and fan questions have been about how the club can acquire a big bat, maybe at catcher, first…...
