Rockies players not planning on participating in home run derby

Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was the captain of the National League All-Star home run derby team last year, but has no plans to participate this year or anytime in the near future, according to the Denver Post. Although he may be an All-Star this year, with only eight home runs thus far it’s unlikely Tulowitzki would have been selected for the derby anyway.Third baseman Nolan...

Colorado Rockies: Pitching trouble continues on the road

It is no surprise that the Colorado Rockies continue to fall behind in the National League West division standings with the pitching performances they are putting on in their current 10-game road trip. Before taking a downhill fall they were on a two game winning streak against NL West foes, defeating the Arizona Diamondbacks at home and then the San Francisco Giants at their place...

Colorado Rockies trade rumors: Kyle Kendrick edition

From the start of the 2015 Major League season the Colorado Rockies sensed that Kyle Kendrick wouldn’t finish the year on their roster. Only signing him to a one year 5.5 million dollar contract in the winter, Kendrick is an attractive prospect to teams that are looking to clean up the back end of their rotations. Kendrick made a good impression for the Rockies not giving up an...

Jenny Cavnar takes the lead on Rockies radio

The Colorado Rockies have not had much to smile about for the past few seasons with losing streaks rolling on for days and even weeks during some really low points. However, one constant source of energy and enthusiasm has been Jenny Cavnar. Since 2012, Cavnar has been host of the Rockies Pregame and Toyota Postgame Show. Cavnar who was born and raised in Aurora, Colo. went to Smoky...

Read Between the Lines: Weiss and Tulowitzki

Troy Tulowitzki showed his stubborn side and it appears Walt Weiss might have a strained relationship with his All-Star shortstop after a pair of quotes came out on Wednesday indicating the shortstop isn’t necessarily willing to do whatever it takes to help the club win and his manager doesn’t know how to handle it. Nick Groke of the Denver Post was with the Rockies on Wednesday...

Arenado’s hitting streak ends at 17, Rox lose again

Nolan Arenado was bound to cool off eventually. Baseball is a game of averages and Arenado over the past two-plus weeks had been laughing in the face of those averages. Some of that came to an end on Wednesday as the Rockies’ star third baseman ended a 17-game hitting streak and his club lost its fourth game in five days. During the streak Arenado went 24-66, a .340 average, with...

Colorado Rockies can change the future by being active at trade deadline

  For years the Major League Baseball trade deadline has come and gone, with the Colorado Rockies being irrelevant. With the exception of the Ubaldo Jimenez trade on July 30th, 2011, the Rockies have done next to nothing around the deadline. Similarly to the offseason, the Rockies seem to ignore this important date on the calendar. For a draft-and-develop organization, that is a...

Rockies GM calls SS promotion a 'Story story, not a Tulo story'

The Rockies drafted Brendan Rodgers third overall this year. Rodgers is a shortstop whom many experts considered the best overall talent in this year’s MLB Draft. He’s been likened to current Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and seen as his heir apparent. However, he’s only 18, and the Rockies actually have another top shortstop prospect in their system who just got closer...

Rockies closer Axford takes family leave for second time this season

For the second time this season Rockies pitcher John Axford has been placed on the family medical emergency list. Earlier in the year, the reliever needed time away to care for his snake-bitten son, Jameson Axford. This time the reason isn’t regarding his son, according to Nick Groke of the Denver Post. Rockies manager Walt Weiss said:"He has some things to take care of at home...

De La Rosa dazzles as Colorado Rockies even series in Oakland

  Colorado Rockies fans won’t know what they had until he’s gone. Jorge De La Rosa, perhaps the most under-appreciated starting pitcher in Rockies history, did what he seems to do every time he takes the mound. Every fifth day, it feels like the words are all the same. It feels like the scenario is almost exactly the same every time. Here is how it goes down; De La Rosa allows...

Who is in the mid-season shortstop market? – Part II

In Part I of this series, I looked at MLB clubs that were likely in the market to upgrade at that prime infield defensive slot, a.k.a the shortstop. So who might be selling? I don’t know if the Colorado Rockies are, but if I needed a quality shortstop, I’d be knocking at the Rockies’ front office door and with a list of pitching prospects and / or cash for Troy Tulowitzki...

David Hale’s early struggles sink Colorado Rockies

  It’s been a common theme for the 2015 Colorado Rockies. The starter goes out and gives up a few runs early and the offense is forced to play catch-up all night long as the starter continues to slowly give up runs. On Monday night in Oakland, David Hale gave up four 1st inning runs on two, two-run home runs. In a pitcher’s park like Oakland, the Rockies were essentially done...

What the Rockies Have In Nolan Arenado

It’s been a good stretch for Nolan Arenado. In the past seven games, he’s hit eight home runs. Going back seven games is an arbitrary endpoint, so, in the five games preceding, Arenado hit either a double or a triple. After a May 23 doubleheader, Arenado was batting .257; since then, he’s batted .333, and […]

Colorado Rockies need to stop denying Troy Tulowitzki trade rumors

The Colorado Rockies can deny all they want but once the trading deadline comes around, Troy Tulowitzki will be on the block. Tulowitzki can say that he would like to stay on the Rockies but that is not in the best interest for them. The team is not getting any better and Tulowitzki is their best trading piece. They can get the most in return for him. They tried their best to let...

The truth about Troy Tulowitzki

I get it.  Troy Tulowitzki is the heart and soul of the Colorado Rockies.  I’ve been to Coors Field, seen all the Tulo jerseys, heard the applause every time his name is mentioned.  He’s an icon for the club and trading him would be a very hard thing for the Rockies to do. Not only that.  He’s the best shortstop in baseball, right? Up until this season, I would have agreed...
