Series Recap 7/30-8/2: Why Did We Not Trade Away More?

by Harrison Williams | Posted August 3, 2015 | 0 Comments

Going into this four game set against the St. Louis Cardinals little was to be expected as the Cardinals own MLB’s best record and run differential. The Rockies were able to keep every game close besides Friday, but it was the Cardinals never give in attitude that carried them to walk off [...]

Looking Numerically at the Tulowitzki Trade

by Harrison Williams | Posted July 31, 2015 | 0 Comments

By now reality has begun to set in that Troy Tulowitzki is a Toronto Blue Jay, and while it came as a complete shock in how quickly it came together without many rumors, it makes a ton of sense with an eye for the future. With Trevor Story, Cristhian Adames and Brendan Rodgers both at Shortstop in [...]

Series Recap 7/27-7/29: Coming Up Blue In Chicago

by John Bristow | Posted July 30, 2015 | 0 Comments

Across the past series against the Chicago Cubs, the Rockies demonstrated that they can pitch low run games, though they can also lose those games as well. In the three game series, the Rockies lost twice on one run margins, and won the other game by a dominant five run lead. The main foe of the [...]

3 Hours in Hell: The Tulo Saga

by Marco Mamolen | Posted July 29, 2015 | 0 Comments

Hour One: Like most Rockies fans, I’ve been preparing for several years for the inevitable Troy Tulowitzki trade. However, my initial reaction to the first round of tweets late Monday night was disbelief. The first thought that crossed my mind was “this has got to be some sick kind of [...]

The First Rockies Game in the Post-Tulowitzki Era

by Adam Peterson | Posted July 29, 2015 | 1 Comment

I didn’t sleep much last night. Plenty of others in Rockies-country struggled, too, I’m sure. I spent hour after hour endlessly refreshing my Twitter feed, hoping against hope that what was demonstratively true wasn’t. Finally I went to sleep for a few hours, woke up, and [...]

Rockies Trade Tulo, Break My Heart

by Jake Shapiro | Posted July 28, 2015 | 3 Comments

Today is the end. Troy Tulowitzki, my favorite player, on my favorite team was traded. I can hardly, type a full sentence without one of the two following emotions setting in, rage, or despair. Today the Rockies broke my heart. For many Rockies fans, the sweep in the World Series in 2007 or [...]

40-Man Ladder – Trade Deadline Edition

by RyanHammon | Posted July 27, 2015 | 0 Comments

The much ballyhooed Trade Deadline is nigh. Between now and July 31st, most of the baseball world will be consumed with talk of players changing uniforms. Rightly or wrongly – and mostly the later – teams will be anointed by baseball’s commentators as either buyers or sellers. Right or [...]

Move on from Cargo?

by Harrison Williams | Posted July 27, 2015 | 2 Comments

It has been a great run for Carlos Gonzalez during his 7 years at mile high, but now seems to be the most opportune time for the Rockies to trade him to jumpstart the rebuild. Cargo is in the midst of a nice comeback year which might warrant a return worthy of trading him, but his subpar 2014 along [...]

Series Recap 7/24-7/26: Outrunning the Redlegs

by Nick Tremaroli | Posted July 26, 2015 | 0 Comments

Coming into this series against the Cincinnati Reds, there wasn’t much for Rockies fans to be excited about. The team had just lost a heartbreaking series to the Rangers in the 9th inning of game three no less. It was extremely frustrating to watch and you’d forgive us if we [...]

Free Kyle Parker?

by Marco Mamolen | Posted July 24, 2015 | 0 Comments

For months the hashtag “Free Kyle Parker” has been circling around the twittersphere, mostly as a long standing joke. With the trade deadline nearing and Wilin Rosario most likely on the move, the Rockies will need a right handed first baseman to replace the Baby Bull. The most [...]
