Revisiting ZiPS Projections, Part III: The Bullpen

December 23, 2015 | 0 Comments

Welcome another episode of Mr. Szymborski’s Improbable History! This week we conclude our series examining the 2015 ZiPS projection system through the lens of the Colorado Rockies. Previously we looked at Rockies hitters and determined that they did a fine job meeting or exceeding expectations. [...]

Revisting ZiPS Projections, Part II: Starting Pitching

December 1, 2015 | 0 Comments

Last week we took a trip in the WABAC Machine to see how well Rockies hitters fared in comparison to their preseason ZiPS projection and found, hey, they actually did pretty okay! So how did this team lose 90+ games for the third time in four years? As is typically the answer to such questions, it [...]

Star Pitcher: A New Hope

November 22, 2015 | 3 Comments

Do you remember how excited Rockies fans were about Tyler Matzek around this time last year?   A much-hyped prospect, Matzek had flopped in the minors, recovered (but only sort of), and finally cracked the big league rotation mid-season after enough Rockies pitchers did what all Rockies pitchers [...]

Revisiting ZiPS and the Rockies – The Hitters

November 11, 2015 | 0 Comments

One of my favorite things to do at the conclusion of the baseball season is to look back at predictions made by popular outlets and experts. It’s why I hold onto those MLB Preview Issues from Sports Illustrated for 8 months. Of course, this year was a tough one for prognosticators, but every year [...]

Keep Calm and Let Jeff Bridich Do His Job

October 29, 2015 | 0 Comments

It was a trying first season under the Jeff Bridich regime, to say the least. The team plodded its way to yet another 90+ loss season, the face of the franchise was traded to a different country (although is Canada REALLY all that different from the USA?), and some fans’ apathy reached new [...]

40-Man Ladder – Offseason

October 17, 2015 | 0 Comments

For baseball’s losers, the offseason comes early. Such is life for the Colorado Rockies. As it turns out, 2015 was not the Rockies’ year. A few months from now, many fans may talk themselves into believing that 2016 will be different. Maybe they’ll be right, probably they won’t. Either way, [...]

Choose Your Rebuild: NL Playoffs Edition

October 12, 2015 | 2 Comments

I wanted to take the time to preview the postseason here on Rockies Zingers but, considering the fact that the Rockies are not only not involved but almost pathetically far away, it didn’t seem quite right. Besides, there are plenty of places where you can read up on the strengths and [...]

The Last Games of 2015

October 6, 2015 | 0 Comments

I have a pair of purple Bermuda shorts. I was wandering through the bookstore in college and I saw a table full of different shorts and shirts for sale and these obstinately purple ones stood out among the rest. At first they were merely a sideshow as I passed through, killing time between classes. [...]

Rockies Smash!

September 28, 2015 | 0 Comments

Well where was that all season, Rockies!? I mean: come on! Did you really have to wait until the last home series of the season to show us what utterly freaking awesome baseball looked like? Geeze. Look guys, I’m not actually complaining. I’€™ll take it. But as many super cool things [...]

Series Recap 9/21 – 9/24: There’s a lot of Baseball Fans in Colorado

September 25, 2015 | 0 Comments

Coors Field was full of energy Wednesday night in the ninth inning. Colorado is full of baseball fans, however they all seem to be rooting for the opponent. A “Lets Go Bucs” chant erupted with Pittsburgh up 13-7 looking to close out the Rockies for the third straight game and clinch [...]
