Despite a poor 5th inning, Friedrich gave reason to be hopeful. It is almost unbearable to watch. The Colorado Rockies are so bad, and the outcome is so predictable that it isn’t worth wasting a summer night to watch them play, and presumably lose again. That was the case on Thursday in St. Louis, as the Rockies dropped their 51st…...

Dan O’Dowd has resorted to excuses. Winning is tough. Only one of 30 Major League teams can win every year, and in a league with no salary cap, the Colorado Rockies have an even tougher time winning than some of the other franchises. With that in mind, franchises in some of the smaller markets have two choices. They can either…...

When you score one run and Aaron Cook is on the mound, odds are there won’t be a W put up in the win column. Cook had a great night through five innings. He gave up one run on two hits through the first five frames, and then the flood gates opened. After two fluky base hits, one off of…...

Make no mistake. These Colorado Rockies hitters have talent.Despite having talent, however, the Rockies can’t seem to get anything going offensively for more than a couple of days in a row. They will go out and score a bunch of runs, but then they go right back to putting up one or two runs for a week.With all of the…...

The Colorado Rockies have played baseball for 18 seasons. There were the honeymoon years, when crowds filled up Mile High Stadium or Coors Field, simply because baseball had arrived. There were the early successes that saw the likes of Larry Walker, Dante Bichette, Vinny Castilla and Andres Galarraga bash their way into the playoffs. There were the big-spending years, in…...

Who would have thought that the best thing Matt Holliday could have done for the Colorado Rockies would be to leave?One of the guys who came over in that deal just so happened to be Carlos Gonzalez. At the time of the deal, Gonzalez was a 22-year old player who had lost his prospect status after being given up on…...

This is officially ridiculous. Troy Tulowitzki did it once again on Saturday. For the fourth time in the last two weeks, Tulowitzki blasted two home runs in the same game in leading the Rockies to a 12-2 victory over the Dodgers.Tulo replicated Friday night, when in the first inning he roped a home run to left field with a runner…...

The Colorado Rockies defeated The Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday in L.A. 3-2 in extra innings. The game was impressive because the Rockies didn’t quit, and, even when they failed with runners in scoring position, they kept fighting.However, this day, for anyone who has followed the Rockies for any amount of time, was about Brad Hawpe.Hawpe came to the Rockies…...

On November 12th, 2008 Rockies manager Dan O’Dowd frustrated his fan base, trading away club hero Matt Holliday to the Oakland A’s for a displaced closer, a fifth starter and a prospect who had struggled in his brief time in the big leagues.That prospect was some kid named Carlos Gonzalez.All he has done is make the entire Rockies fan base…...

On Saturday night, Ubaldo Jimenez lost his bid to become the first Colorado Rockie to win the Cy Young award. What is interesting about it is that Jimenez hasn’t pitched since Wednesday, and won’t pitch until Monday when he squares off against Tim Lincecum and the San Francisco Giants. 2,000 miles away, in Miami, Colorado native Roy Halladay pitched the…...

Much like Major League players, baseball fans often enjoy a day off every now and then. With baseball’s grueling schedule that sees a team get three days off per month, it is nice to take a breather.Off days are not spent wondering how the Rockies offense is going to step it up, or if Ubaldo Jimenez can continue his dominance,…...

He is known as “the other guy.”That’s what most fans refer to him as when they talk about the Matt Holliday trade that has turned out to be a lopsided deal in the Rockies favor. The conversation generally goes a little like this…”Who did the Rockies get for Matt Holliday?” Answer: “Huston Street and Carlos Gonzalez…oh, and some other guy…”That…...

Don’t panic yet.For every person in the baseball world saying that the Colorado Rockies are going to be a great team there are two people reminding them that this team is terrible in April.On Tuesday night in Milwaukee the Rockies were beat 7-5 by the Brewers, very much because they failed to minimize damage.Greg Smith, making his Rockies debut after…...

In this day and age, professional athletes are known as much for their arrogance and ego as they are for their abilities to play their sport. In this day and age, professional athletes are not judged by their character, but rather how many home runs they hit.

Name the best shortstop to ever wear a Rockies uniform. The names are deep, but the talent is shallow. Anyone who watches baseball and has paid any attention to the Colorado Rockies knows that their is no argument for who has been the best at the shortstop position in the 17 years of Rockies baseball. Troy Tulowitzki.With all due respect…...

Talk to anyone about baseball in Colorado and inevitably what will come up is how different the game is at altitude and how many runs are scored at Coors Field. In fact, most believe that it is nearly impossible to pitch at 20th & Blake. The people who continue to refer to Coors Field as the best hitters park in…...

After a four game series in which the Rockies proved that they are legitimate playoff contenders against the Cubs, the team looked like they were a team that wanted nothing to do with the October baseball on Tuesday night against the Pirates. On Wednesday night, the contending Colorado Rockies, behind emerging star Ubaldo Jimenez, re-emerged at Coors Field. Jimenez was…...

Go back one year ago. The Rockies were living in a fantasy world thinking that they were still in the National League West race. They knew that the odds of signing upcoming free agent Brian Fuentes was slim to none and Matt Holliday, who had rejected several of the teams offers for a long-term deal, was in high demand. Not…...
