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 [...]

An Aggravating Baseball Layover

August 26, 2015 | 5 Comments

If new Rockies shortstop Jose Reyes is prone to recurring nightmares, I imagine his current one goes a little something like this… “Ding,” chirps a speaker from overhead. Reyes is startled to find himself sitting in what seems to be the cabin of a stationary airplane. It’s really only the [...]

August 12, 2015 | 0 Comments

*This was cross posted on* Troy Tulowitzki’s stellar 3-5, one homer, three RBI debut performance for the Toronto Blue Jays was no surprise to this Colorado Rockies fan. Tulo, my beloved Tulo, over whom the Rockies broke my heart, is as good as any player at any position in the [...]

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 [...]

3 Hours in Hell: The Tulo Saga

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 [...]

Rockies Trade Tulo, Break My Heart

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 [...]
