Rockies Wars : Episode April 2016

April 9, 2016 | 2 Comments

This is a Rockies Star Wars parody. Any resemblance to any player or droid, in this universe or another, might be coincidental. (Click BB-8 below for a neat intro. Caution: It does have sound.) Outside an abandoned escape pod at the desert city of Scottsdale, Arizona, a tall golden robot and a [...]

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 [...]

The Strangest Games in Rockies History: The Conclusion

January 19, 2016 | 1 Comment

Towards the end of the 2015 regular season the Colorado Rockies played a very strange game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, a 16 inning marathon that inspired a quick series by an author who was merely looking for something interesting to write about as another dismal season came to a close. The [...]

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 [...]

Choose Your Rebuild: AL Playoff Edition

October 9, 2015 | 1 Comment

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 [...]

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 [...]

The Strangest Games in Rockies History, Part 1

September 24, 2015 | 1 Comment

The Rockies played a strange one last week. On Tuesday, September 15th they played 16 innings against the Dodgers in Chavez Ravine that ended up setting franchise records for both teams for players used and pitchers used in a single game. The two teams also set major league records for most [...]

The Rockies are NOT the Worst Baserunning Team in Baseball

September 1, 2015 | 0 Comments

Non-contending Augusts are probably one of the most difficult things to endure as a baseball fan. It’s not yet September, so there aren’t many call ups getting their proverbial “cups of coffee” in the big leagues. And the specter of a playoff race has long since flown away. That leaves us [...]

Series Recap 8/24-8/26: A Series Win!

August 27, 2015 | 0 Comments

The dog days of summer have been in full effect as of late with the Rockies only having won a single series in the month of August coming into this three game set vs. the Braves. The stars had aligned for the Rockies to take the series (their first in Atlanta since 2005) as the Braves came into the [...]
