What’s in Store for the Rockies this Offseason? Part I

The Rockies offseason began in relative upheaval when long-tenured GM Dan O’Dowd and Director of Major League Operations Bill Geivett resigned.  For a front office that had been notably resistant to change, it will be interesting to see what direction new GM Jeff Bridich takes the franchise. Bridich hopes to bring a breath of fresh air to a Rockies franchise looking to reach the...

Featured Post: Cuddyer At Two Years Fits Sandy’s Plan

Andy Martino of the Daily News sees free agent Michael Cuddyer as the exact sort of piece that fits the Mets offense and that people familiar with the Mets’ thinking say that they consider him attractive on a two-year deal. With the Mets highly reluctant to trade any of their young pitchers this winter, coupled with a lack of money to add a more significant player, Cuddyer makes...

Bridich takes baby step in right direction

Colorado Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich isn’t standing pat – and that’s perhaps the most promising thing about his brief tenure so far with the team. The decision to part ways with pitching coach Jim Wright and bullpen coach Bo McLaughlin isn’t exactly revolutionary - not after the Rockies finished with a MLB-worst 4.86 earned run average that wasn’t just a product...

Rockies let go of pitching coach Wright

The Colorado Rockies have decided to part ways with pitching coach Jim Wright and bullpen coach Bo McLaughlin in new general manager Jeff Bridich’s first move since taking over. The decision ends a long relationship with Wright, who’d been with the organization for 18 years, three as pitching coach. Wright served as pitching coach in 2002 and then again from 2013-14. Pitching...

Cuddyer’s fate is new GM’s first big test

The Colorado Rockies newly minted general manager Jeff Bridich has a big offseason in front of him. Inheriting a team that finished the 2014 season with a record of 66-96, Bridich is tasked with fixing a bullpen that allowed 5.05 runs per-game, last in baseball, and a rotation that forced it to throw the 525.2 innings, the third most. The fact that Bridich doesn’t have much...

Yes Network’s Facebook Page Called Rockies Troy Tulowitzki ‘Sexy’ (Photo)

Troy Tulowitzski isn’t too sure how he feels about being called sexy.  Yes Network isn’t just around when it’s baseball season. Today on their Facebook page, they began to discuss replacements for Derek Jeter and their wording is a bit of an eyebrow raiser.  Well, a “sexy choice” sounds like something a Twitter user would say.

Rockies Rumors: Russell Martin to Colorado?

The Colorado Rockies struggled to a 66-96 record this season, fourth in the National League Central. Although third in the Major Leagues in runs scored, the Rockies were derailed because of a staff that was 30th in ERA at 4.84. One player who may help both the offense and the staff is veteran catcher Russell Martin, who should be at the top of the list of free agent catchers this...

Mile “highs” from the Rockies’ 2014 season…yes, there were some

For the Colorado Rockies, the 2014 season was the same sad song as their past few years. Injured superstars get paid big bucks but can’t deliver a full season, an aged veteran turns out the best performance amidst a roster of young and upcoming talent, and pitching that lacked any real reliability. Yeah, I guess you could say that the Colorado Rockies could be described with all...

The Rockies can’t even fire their GMs right

Yesterday, the Rockies finally moved on from their bizarre tandem GM arrangement that has led them to four straight years of 88 or more losses. This is a great sign of progress for a very backwards organization, right? NOPE. It turns out that clearing out Dan O’Dowd and Bill Geivett wasn’t there intention at all. In fact, they actually tried to give O’Dowd an extension....

Co-GMs O’Dowd and Geivett are out in Colorado, but is change actually coming?

According to reports, the GM tandem of Dan O’Dowd and Bill Geivett are finished with the Colorado Rockies. In so doing, they bring to an end one of the longest-tenured but most dysfunctional front offices in baseball. Or at least they have nominally because Colorado has already named a new GM in Jeff Bridich, who had been serving as the senior director of player development. Even...

What Happened to Wilin Rosario?

After a breakout 2013 season in which Wilin Rosario hit .292 with 21 home runs, fantasy owners had high hopes entering the 2014 season. Unfortunately, he struggled for the first two months of the season before ultimately finding his way the last four months of the season. During the first two months of the year he had a .225/.261/.395 slash line with a .240 BABIP. In the last four...

Rockies Injury Update: Jhoulys Chacin throwing off a mound

The Colorado Rockies head into the final four games of the 2014 season with a record of 66-92, fourth in the National League East. Heading into the off season, there are some bright spots, as the Rockies are second in the league in runs scored. But a woeful pitching staff that is 30th in the Major Leagues in ERA, has largely contributed to the poor season. One good sign for the staff...

Failure to make changes might hurt the Colorado Rockies more than they think

That is why he hasn't done what the owners of 27 other teams have done, some several times, since he hired Dan O'Dowd to be the general manager of the Rockies.

End of season post-mortem: Colorado Rockies

Why no one talks about Nolan Arenado even though they should

The Colorado Rockies best kept secret is only a secret if you don’t watch the Rockies play. There aren’t many infielders in the game of baseball today that bring the package that Nolan Arenado does. While he has quietly become one of the best third basemen in the league today, perhaps the scariest thing about Nolan Arenado is that he’s 23 years old. There are a lot of reasons...

When Sunday afternoon’s slate of MLB games began, no one had hit for the cycle during the 2014 season. But during the second game of the Reds-Rockies doubleheader, OF Michael Cuddyer abruptly put an end to that streak. In the eighth inning of the game, Cuddyer came to the plate needing just a double to hit for the cycle. And he delivered—ripping a...
