Rockies’ Carlos Gonzalez belts 200th homer of career

It took all of one inning for Colorado Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez to move from 198 to 199 career home runs. Going from 199 to 200 took considerably longer, but Gonzalez finally hit the 200th home run of his career Saturday against the Washington Nationals, becoming the fifth player in franchise history to do so, joining Dante Bichette […] The post Rockies’ Carlos Gonzalez...

Colorado Rockies: Rate the Rockies Bullpen, Part 2

Picture a game show setting and some cheesy music playing. Picture a crowd clapping wildly off-camera as the announcer prepares to speak. Suddenly, in a booming voice, he says, “Welcome to America’s most maddening game show … Rate the Colorado Rockies Bullpen!” The crowd claps and the cheesy music keeps playing. It’s a beautiful sight.

Jeff Hoffman shows promise in second start, but Rockies’ slide continues

WASHINGTON — The Rockies knew the so-called fire they tossed Jeff Hoffman into last week, when he made his debut against the red-hot Chicago Cubs, wasn’t going to simmer anytime soon. Not when the promising young right-hander had to make his second career start on the road against the Washington Nationals, yet another first-place team with firepower to spare. Not when his fastball...

Rockies left-hander Kyle Freeland still going strong at Triple-A Albuquerque

If there was an endurance wall for pitcher Kyle Freeland to run into in his first full season in the Rockies’ farm system, he stepped right over it. The left-handed Freeland still is going strong with the season down to its final days. He has posted victories in his last three starts for Triple-A Albuquerque, including 14 shutout innings in his last two starts. He allowed just...

Colorado Rockies: Prospect Stephen Cardullo Promoted to Big Leagues

Earlier today the Colorado Rockies called up Triple-A prospect outfielder Stephen Cardullo. First baseman Ben Paulsen was sent back to Triple-A Albuquerque last night. Currently Stephen Cardullo is not on the team’s 40-man roster. The most likely scenario is one of shortstop Trevor Story, first baseman Mark Reynolds or reliever Scott Oberg to be put on the […] Colorado Rockies...

The Next Stage of Nolan Arenado

Walks, I think, have suffered from something of a marketing problem. And analysts were in large part responsible, back in OBP’s heyday 10 or 15 years ago. The walk felt underrated, and so in some circles it became maybe overrated. Analysts loved players who walked. But other players didn’t respond so well to that, because, to them, you don’t go up there trying to walk. You...

DraftKings: Rollin’, Rollin’, Rollin’ Arenado

On Sunday, Nolan Arenado broke out of a mini-slump and hit his first home run since August 8. He couldn't have asked for a better matchup this week than the one that he gets on Tuesday night against Chase Anderson and the Brewers. This game is on the road, so it doesn't have quite the positive effect on hitters, but Miller Park is one of the more hitter friendly parks in the league...

Jeff Hoffman Debut, Electric Boogaloo

I first saw Jeff Hoffman pitch in February of 2014, when he was a junior at East Carolina, and thought I was seeing the guy who would later go first overall in that June’s draft. Hoffman was electric, sitting 92-96 mph, touching 98 and showing feel for four pitches on a chilly, late-winter’s day in Virginia. Best amateur slider I’ve ever seen aside, Hoffman was better than...

Colorado Rockies: The sad case of Jose Reyes

Some things just cannot be explained. There was a time when Jose Reyes was one of the best leadoff hitting in the MLB, but those days were left in 2011 and earlier. Yet that still could not support what went wrong with Reyes while with the Colorado Rockies. He at least was somewhat useful to the Marlins and Blue Jays. Even though he diminished after his time in New York, he was still...

Charlie Blackmon Has Zeroed In

It’s been observed before we don’t write that much about the Rockies. Now, this is one of those things that works both ways — we could probably stand to write about them more, but there also hasn’t been much in the way of demand. Mostly, I’d say it’s the Rockies’ fault, since people want to read about and write about winners. The Rockies haven’t won. When we have...
