Rockies Zingers Closing and The Future

January 24, 2017 | 2 Comments

Hello all, I wanted to formally announce, on the eve of its three year anniversary, that Rockies Zingers will be closing down. Truth be told, we’ve been pretty M.I.A. since mid June anyway. Before I started to write, I’d been encouraged by quite a few people in the baseball community to [...]

The Rockies Can Take A Stand Against Domestic Violence

May 14, 2016 | 0 Comments

We try not to get too stern here at Rockies Zingers. Baseball’s supposed to be a fun game after all. Sure, we’ll get serious. We’ll walk through the numbers with the best of them, dissecting a player and critiquing their performance. We’ll also get sentimental, wallowing [...]

The Art of Scorekeeping

April 16, 2016 | 2 Comments

Unlike football, hockey, and basketball, baseball has a system of scorekeeping that can truly be defined as elegant and personal. Since the flow of baseball is rarely impacted by time limits, the metric by which the games passes is broken down into at-bats. Given that each at-bat is a distinct, [...]

Baseball, Muses, and Writing about the Rockies

April 13, 2016 | 0 Comments

Last offseason, I wrote a post enumerating different ways a fan could conceivably get their baseball fix between November and February.

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. [...]

Game 163 – An Oral History

October 1, 2015 | 0 Comments

There’s not a lot of good going on with the Rockies right now. It’s the end of the season and they’ve already locked up their 3rd 90+ loss season in 4 years. The offseason is looking to be a tumultuous and pivotal one for the future of the franchise. But there will be plenty of [...]

If you follow the Twitter accounts of Charlie Blackmon (@Chuck_Nazty) and Christian Friedrich (@CFried12), you might’ve noticed over the last year that they’re pretty big into gaming. At one point, Charlie Blackmon even credited video gaming with the hot start he had to his 2014 season. [...]

I Got Love for Rockies’ Jorge De La Rosa

September 16, 2015 | 0 Comments

I’ve told this story many a time, here once or twice, and I’ve told it directly to Ryan Spilborghs on our RoCkieSiNgerY podcast (episode 14). I started following the Rockies on August 22nd, 2009. Most people don’t have a date, or time when they started following team, or a [...]
