The nightmare is over for Colorado Rockies fans, but baseball will be missed

  And with that, the Colorado Rockies and their 2015 season came to an unceremonious end. Ironically, the Rockies scored seven runs in the top of the 9th inning to beat the San Francisco Giants 7-3 in the season finale. The comeback happened when Corey Dickerson smashed a three-run homer to tie the game while the Denver Broncos were driving down the field in the 2nd quarter of their...

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Corey Dickerson hit a three-run homer, pinch-hitter Justin Morneau delivered a two-run single and the Colorado Rockies rallied for seven runs in the ninth inning Sunday to beat the San Francisco Giants 7-3. The Giants finished 84-78, a year after winning 88 games in the regular season and going on to take their third World Series title in five seasons. Colorado...

Arenado tied for NL home run crown entering final game of 2015

Nolan Arenado has been playing out of his mind this year and he’s kept things up right until the very end. The Rockies third baseman is running away with the NL RBI crown and will win his third consecutive Gold Glove award when the end-of-year awards are doled out. But heading into the final game of the season on Sunday, Arenado needs to have another big day if he wants to claim...

Nolan Arenado has a huge night, setting an all-time mark and moving into HR lead

Friday night Nolan Arenado took the lead in the National League home run race with a solo shot to lead off the second inning in San Francisco. The blast was his 42nd of the year and put him one ahead of Bryce Harper for tops in the NL. But the All-Star third baseman wasn’t done there. The very next inning Arenado doubled home Carlos Gonzalez for his 88th extra base hit on the...

Colorado Rockies offense is good enough to contend in 2016

  As Nolan Arenado trotted around the bases in the top of the 2nd inning in San Francisco, it was easy to reminisce about his breakout season. The home run helped start the scoring as the Rockies won 9-3 to start their final series in a great way. The Colorado Rockies, in an overall horrible season, have had the benefit of watching their third baseman become an absolute star in...

Where do the Colorado Rockies go from here?

Another year, another losing season. The Colorado Rockies are again putting the final touches on a disastrous season. 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? Will the choose to re-sign manager Walt Weiss? How are they going to upgrade their rotation...

Castillo's 2-run double lifts Diamondbacks past Rockies, 8-6

PHOENIX (AP) Welington Castillo had a go-ahead two run double with two out during Arizona's four-run seventh inning that gave the Diamondbacks an 8-6 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Thursday night. Phil Gosselin hit an inside-the-park home run for Arizona with two away in the seventh to start Arizona's rally. Replays appeared to show the ball clearing the yellow line on top...

Carlos Gonzalez hits 40th home run as Colorado Rockies lose in extra innings

  The Colorado Rockies like to torture their fans. If it isn’t with a false hope that accompanies every April, it is forcing fans to stay up late to watch an 11-inning meaningless game in late September only to see them lose in predictable fashion. When Brooks Brown started the bottom of the 11th with 11 straight pitches out of the strike zone, any chance of the Rockies winning...

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...
