May 31, 2016 | 0 Comments

2012 was a rough year for the Colorado Rockies: between the NL lowest 5.22 ERA, an ultimately poor defense, and position players beset by injury, the Rockies struggled to get by with a 64-98 season.

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 [...]

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 [...]

The Strangest Games in Rockies History, Part 2(sday)

October 26, 2015 | 2 Comments

A few weeks ago I started us on a journey chronicling the strangest games in Rockies history (with a brief interlude on Game 163).

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 [...]

New York Mets at Colorado Rockies Friday to Sunday, August 21-23, 2015 This past weekend Coors Field reverted back to its pre-humidor behaviors.

After a surprising four-game sweep of the Atlanta Braves heading into the 4 day All Star Break, the Rockies had a bit of hope for the second half. Maybe this was the jolt this struggling team needed! Rockies fans had little to cheer for in the All Star Game itself. DJ LeMahieu, who was named a [...]

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 [...]
