The Rockies played the offseason perfectly

You won’t hear any proclamations about how the Colorado Rockies “won” the offseason. Considering the mega moves made by division rivals like the Dodgers and Padres this winter, along with the fact that the Giants are once again the defending World Series champs, you could easily look at the lack of big offseason moves by Colorado and let out that familiar sigh of disappointment...

Player Profile #93: Nolan Arenado | 3B | COL

Nolan Arenado’s age-23 sophomore season was a good one. The second-year starter for the Rockies slashed .287/.328/.500 on the year with a .359 wOBA, rate stats that compare favorably to those of Matt Holliday, Matt Kemp, and Adrian Gonzalez and that showed significant improvement from his rookie 2013 season — .267/.301/.405 with a .308 wOBA.

Tulowitzki says hip feels 'good as new', is fueled by doubters

DENVER -- This has almost become an annual rite of impending spring: Troy Tulowitzki insisting he is healthy and can stay that way for an entire season. The Colorado Rockies often-injured shortstop realizes everyone is wary of such talk. So, he took a different path when asked about the status of his surgically repaired hip. Wait and judge for yourself next month in spring training...

The Rockies As A 2015 Sleeper Team

The Rockies are always in a weird spot. No matter what they do or don’t do, no one ever really seems to care about them. They’re just kind of there. They maintain a low profile, and even if they never spend big, their payroll is not so low that it sticks out. Most stories that […]

Time to Trade is Now for the Rockies

“When he is healthy he is one of the greatest shortstops baseball has ever seen.” “When he is healthy he is one of the most dynamic outfielders in the game today.” These are the statements that have accompanied Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and outfielder Carlos Gonzalez for, at least, the past two seasons. There is no denying the All-Star caliber talent that...

Player Profile #137: Charlie Blackmon | OF | COL

Skill is, of course, really important, but time and time again we’ve witnessed players with less skill, outperform more gifted players for no other reason than the context in which they are playing. It’s not necessarily luck that I’m referring to, but rather an acceptance that a sizable portion of a player’s fantasy goodness depends on their opportunity. Perhaps above all...

Nick Hundley, the Rockies best move?

The addition of catcher Nick Hundley may not jump off the paper, but he was exactly what the Colorado Rockies were looking for. In need of a veteran catcher to manage a young staff and develop a young Wilin Rosario, Hundley will have immediate impacts on the Rockies. Rosario’s troubles behind the plate have been well documented. Still young, Rosario has time to grow and develop...

Player Profile #171: Justin Morneau | 1B | COL

Before writing this post I got a bit curious – what did we say about Justin Morneau at this time last year? I kept searching and searching for his profile, but to no avail. Then it finally hit me. There’s no way we ranked Morneau among our top 200 players year! Like so many fantasy players, we fed both him and his complete and utter mediocrity to the sharks. Can you really blame...

Are the Rockies ready to rebuild?

The Colorado Rockies do weird things. Whether it’s reorganizing the front office in a way that puts the GM in charge of the farm system instead of the major league roster or having the new GM put an office in the clubhouse, they operate in a way that is unusual for an MLB franchise. Even […]

Let’s try to rationalize Michael Cuddyer’s qualifying offer

Monday evening was the deadline for teams to hand out qualifying offers to teams, and one offer really stood out from the bunch – the Rockies offering Michael Cuddyer. Cuddyer was the 2013 NL batting champion, but he played in just 49 games in 2014 thanks to three different DL stints because of three different injuries. So naturally, Colorado dishes out the qualifying offer, despite...

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

Dick Monfort simply doesn't get it.Dick Monfort is fiercely loyal. Nearly everyone agrees on that.That is what everyone says about the Colorado Rockies owner. 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.
