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 [...]

Even in a Lost Season, September Matters

September 8, 2015 | 0 Comments

Listen, the 2015 Rockies are bad. Like really, really bad. But let’s be honest, what did we expect to see from this team this year? Playoff contention? No. Improvement? Maybe. To exist? Sure, that’s probably more realistic. Let’s take a trip back to April for a moment. Kyle [...]

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 [...]

Free Kyle Parker?

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 [...]

Breaking Bad: Replacing Walter Weiss

July 17, 2015 | 1 Comment

I wanted the Walt Weiss hire to work out so badly. I really did. What could be better than watching someone who helped put your favorite franchise on the map lead the team out of the desert and into the promised land? There have been moments, fleeting moments, here and there of excitement with the [...]

Charlie Blackmon Trade on the Horizon?

July 3, 2015 | 1 Comment

With the trade deadline only a month away, the Colorado Rockies undoubtedly will be active and unless they begin to turn things around, it would appear they will be sellers. There are several players that are candidates to be dealt, including fan favorite Carlos Gonzalez. However, it is unlikely [...]

A Childhood Dream Come True: Steven Leonard

June 20, 2015 | 3 Comments

19 years ago, in the activity room of our pre-school in Monument, Colorado, I met a fellow three-year old named Steven Leonard. Does that name sound familiar? It should. It’s the same Steven Leonard that the Rockies just drafted in the 23rd round of the 2015 MLB First-Year Player Draft. Since [...]

A Year Abroad: A Pitcher By Any (Other) Name

April 26, 2015 | 0 Comments

First, our American Sentences for the week, in honor of the Dodgers and Padres, featuring some good, old-fashioned baseball despair. Deep down, we all knew that California would come and pull us ground-ward. Oh, God, we have to play the Dodgers thirteen more times before June 4th. Now to regularly [...]

Baseball Prospectus 2015 is Here!

February 8, 2015 | 0 Comments

When you’re a baseball fan, there are things to love about February. It’s still the offseason, sure, and no games are played in the month, of course. But February isn’t December, when the only excitement is following a team heavily involved in the Winter Meetings (so NOT the Rockies). And it [...]

On the Baseball Solstice

January 16, 2015 | 0 Comments

This is when I start to really get antsy. We’re a month away from the start of spring training. The transaction news has slowed to a trickle since the winter meetings. Other diversions—like other sports and “work”—aren’t quite as distracting as they were—or aren’t quite distracting [...]
