Colorado is going to end up with a top-5 and general manager Jeff Bridich has some major questions to address in the offseason. Are the Rockies going to trade Carlos Gonzalez?

Vacation mode for Colorado Rockies in full swing on final trip

  Remember going on vacation last time? Remember when all that work that you had every intention of getting done before you headed out? Remember when 3 pm rolled around and you realized there was no way to get everything you intended to get done accomplished? Well, that is probably exactly how the Colorado Rockies feel. The only difference is that the Rockies are feeling that while...

Rockies Rhubarb: What to do with Rex Brothers

On Wednesday night in Arizona, Colorado Rockies left-handed reliever Rex Brothers did what he’s been doing for the better part of his Major League career. He got one left-handed batter out. In the bottom of the seventh inning, with the Rockies down by a run, Brothers got Socrates Brito to ground out softly to second base. Bill and Ted would’ve been proud. Then, manager Walt Weiss...

Colorado Rockies: Chad Bettis makes his case for 2016 starting rotation

  In a season in which a team loses more than 90 games, every bright spot is overshadowed by the dark cloud that is the terrible record. However, the bright spots still need to be highlighted. The ones that catch the most attention are the obvious ones. Nolan Arenado, who hit his 40th double of the season on Wednesday night, became just the third player in Rockies history to have...

Two Colorado Rockies stars, Arenado and Gonzalez, just did something that hasn’t been done since 2006

The Colorado Rockies have been awful this year. They’re on their way to another fifth place finish in the NL West and no one has paid much attention to the team in months. That doesn’t mean Carlos Gonzalez and Nolan Arenado aren’t still special players. Get a load of this. Carlos Gonzlez and Nolan Arenado are 1st pair of teammates with 40 HR in a season since Jermaine Dye...

Ray looks to cool Rockies' bats in series opener

The Colorado Rockies have scored the most runs in the NL, have the league's second-best batting average and need Carlos Gonzalez to hit one more homer to make him and Nolan Arenado the first teammates with 40 apiece in nine years. None of that has prevented Colorado from sitting at the bottom of the NL West finishing out a third 90-loss season in four years. The Rockies look to win...

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...

John Axford to return to Milwaukee for film festival

It’s hella cliché, but…heeeeeeeeeeere’s Johnny! Current Colorado Rockies reliever John Axford is heading back to Beertown, but not as a member of the Milwaukee Brewers, but as part of the Milwaukee Film Festival. “I’ve been a part of the Milwaukee Film Festival the last four years and the last three years there’s been a John Axford Presents in there, so I do get...

Walt Weiss on Rockies lineup vs Clayton Kershaw: ‘I may pick out of a hat’

The Colorado Rockies have the unenviable task of going up against Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw on Monday night, and manager Walt Weiss isn’t quite sure how to go about it. Usually, managers opt to field lineups heavy with right-handed bats to counter a southpaw on the hill. But trying to apply conventional wisdom to a date with Kershaw, the finest southpaw in the land, is about...

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. Preseason Prediction: Chances are if Dinger was going to be arrested for not wearing pants, it would’ve happened by now...

Carlos Gonzalez Has Reminded Us Of His Special Talent

A 32-home run season is a solid achievement, one accomplished last year by only 10 players. That's why what Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez has accomplished the past few months is so amazing. He was a rather highly touted prospect and put together four solid seasons with Colorado, but injuries have marred his career and limited his potential, to a degree. Lately, however...

Jose Reyes hints he wants out of Colorado

    Jose Reyes has spent less than a month with the Colorado Rockies, and it sounds like he has already had enough. Over the weekend, Reyes expressed frustration over the fact that he is inching toward the end of his career and playing for a team that is nowhere close to being a contender. “You come from a ballclub that was competing for a spot in the playoffs,” the 32...
