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)

Better wording next time, please, Yes Network...

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....

Rockies fail to make real changes

Imagine you’d cooked an omelet that turned out to taste downright terrible. Then, imagine you were asked to try it again, cooking another omelet with the exact same ingredients, but had to make it taste significantly better the second time around.

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...
