Trevor Story, 2016 Fantasy Outlook

In an NFBC 15-team league where there are no pickups in-season, I already plan on drafting Trevor Story, and it's only November, and this is coming from a guy who doesn't know what he's doing next weekend.  How's that for excitement, Spanish beach?  Hmm, maybe that makes more sense if I leave it as playa.  Here's what Prospect Mike said recently, "(Story went) 20/20 in Double...

On the farm: Colorado Rockies prospect profile Ryan McMahon

  What’s next for the Colorado Rockies? Troy Tulowitzki is nothing but a memory and many other Rockies could be moved for young prospects. The Rockies are already in rebuild mode but they haven’t committed one hundred percent to the usual rebuild model of selling off all tradable pieces. If it had to be compared to another organization, the Rockies look like the Houston Astros...

Colorado Rockies Need to Finish the Job and Trade Carlos Gonzalez

The Troy Tulowitzki trade changed everything. Before the night of July 27th, the Rockies were a team that was counting on some sustained luck and good timing combined with a fairly talented lineup to make the playoffs. They were in a variation of a win-now mode. After that night, that was no longer the case. At that time, Jeff Bridich might as well have officially announced that...

Colorado Rockies need to hold on to Carlos Gonzalez

  When the Colorado Rockies traded Troy Tulowitzki to the Toronto Blue Jays, many thought another move would be quick to follow. Outfielder Carlos Gonzalez seemed to be the next one shipped out of town for pitching prospects. Gonzalez has a big contract, wants to win and the Rockies are in big need of some pitching. It all made sense. But Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich did...

SQ Winter Blueprint: Colorado Rockies

2015 Summary The Rockies have emerged as a franchise that consistently produces profound singular talent, yet the shortcomings of the full 25-man roster have been the folly of the franchise. In 2015, the same held true. Despite a desirable offensive core of third baseman Nolan Arenado, second baseman D.J. LeMahieu and outfielders Carlos Gonzalez and Charlie Blackmon, Colorado...

Should the Colorado Rockies consider trading Nolan Arenado?

What should the Rockies do? If anybody has the answer to that question, please hop in a car and get up to Coors Field as fast as possible, because all of Colorado is depending on your genius. The funny thing is that I’m sure nearly everyone just picked up their head and thought, “Wait … I know what to do!” And maybe you do. The reality is that the Rockies could do just...

Jose Reyes trade was unlikely even before his domestic violence arrest

If the pressure on Jeff Hoffman, Jesus Tinoco and Miguel Castro wasn’t already high to “perform” as the pitchers acquired in the Troy Tulowitzki trade, that pressure has certainly grown within the last 24 hours since news has surfaced that the other key part of that trade, Jose Reyes, was arrested on Halloween for domestic assault charges in Hawaii. writer Thomas Harding...

Projecting Rockies Call-Ups Cristhian Adames & Tom Murphy

At 60-84, the Rockies are not merely way out of contention, but also mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. The team’s in full on rebuild mode these days, and simply put, there aren’t all that many exciting players on their roster. However, they’ve called up a couple of interesting hitters this September who could ultimately develop into useful contributors and help out...

2015 MLB Farewells: Colorado Rockies

It is that part of the year where pennant race positioning becomes the priority for some, while an early look to the next spring is the forced reality for others. It is a chance to book better winter destination vacations for some, emptier seats for most and a chance for reflection for all. For the Colorado Rockies, admittedly the expectations were not high. The rhetoric has been...

End of season post-mortem: 2015 Colorado Rockies

More than anything else with the 2015 Colorado Rockies, I’m surprised they weren’t the first team eliminated from playoff contention. I think that about sums things up – the same problems that have been prevalent in Colorado for years are still around.
