Front Office

Keep Calm and Rock On

April 15, 2016 | 0 Comments

About the front office, “Lost… Clueless…” About “cheap” owners, “Ownership is either unable to roll out big money for a star who can help them win a World Series or they are unable to do it.” About a general manager, “You’re in over your head. [...]

Rockies Offseason Review And A Look Ahead

March 1, 2016 | 0 Comments

Another long offseason is in the review mirror, and a lot has happened in the six months since we’ve last seen the Rockies take the field at Coors. The Broncos won the Super Bowl, Leo won an Oscar and Full House got fuller and even more awful. In the baseball world, the Diamondbacks acquired Zack [...]

Pen Adjustments

February 23, 2016 | 0 Comments

The Colorado Rockies could spend 90-percent of their payroll on the bullpen, but the fate of those arms still rests in the hands of the starters. Rockies starters tossed the least amount of innings, 857.2, of any rotation in major league baseball last year. Thus it is not shocking that the bullpen [...]

The Plan

February 2, 2016 | 0 Comments

Well, the Rockies finally made their long-anticipated outfielder-for-pitcher trade.  And, perhaps predictably, everyone seems to think it sucks.  Mostly it sucks, it seems, because it’s emblematic of the Rockies’ incoherent or altogether missing “plan.”  And that’s what I’d most like [...]

Rockies Fest Beckons 2016 Season

Denver is coated in orange wherever you look, but for a few hours on Saturday, fans at Rockies Fest 2016 only saw purple. The annual event turned out a few thousand loyal Rockies supporters, sparking excitement for the quickly approaching start of spring training. Rockies Fest is a special event [...]

A Look Back And Forward At Rockies Pitching

January 31, 2016 | 0 Comments

The Rockies have a problem and Jeff Bridich knows it. Since the club’s inaugural season in 1993, the team has never finished first in the NL West, even though the team has a hitter friendly park, an ever-changing rotation of NL batting champions, and one of the best infield defenses in all of the [...]

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 [...]
