ROCKIES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Carlos Gonzalez named NL Player of the Month

After a slow start to the season, Carlos Gonzalez has more than made up for any early doubts fans and his club might have had. On Monday the Rockies right fielder was rewarded for an amazing month of July in which he hit an NL-high 11 home runs, with 24 RBIs and an .841 slugging percentage, being named the NL Player of the Month. It is his first such award. The club congratulated...

De La Rosa dazzles as Colorado Rockies sneak in a victory

  How bad would the Colorado Rockies be without Jorge De La Rosa? Before the comments fly about how a last place team can’t be any worse than where they currently are, give it an honest thought. If the Rockies didn’t have De La Rosa, this team, with the current pitching staff, could be historically bad. The fact that De La Rosa can stop the bleeding every fifth day gives some...

ST. LOUIS (AP) The Colorado Rockies have placed right-hander Kyle Kendrick and outfielder Corey Dickerson on the 15-day disabled list.

The bad, the ugly, the Rockies!

  Stop me if you’ve heard this before… It’s August 1st, 2015 and the Colorado Rockies are irrelevant! For myself and many media members in this great city of ours, the Broncos media BBQ marks the end of baseball season. And once again it could not have come soon enough. In my open letter to Tulo I explained how it was time to turn the page. First year GM Jeff Bridich put...

John Gets the Axford

After blowing his fifth save Thursday night, giving up three walks and two runs in the ninth, John Axford has now blown four save chances in his past five appearances. Colorado Rockies Manager Walt Weiss said Friday that John Axford would be removed from the closer role. But from the looks of the quote, it sounds like Axford could potentially gain the job back, especially if the...

Axford, Rockies literally walk off in loss to Cardinals

As a guy who allowed just one earned run from April 8 until June 17, these past six weeks must have been agony for John Axford. The closer who was virtually unhittable in his first 20 games, compiling a .047 ERA and .162 batting average against to go along with one win and 12 saves, can’t seem to buy an out these days. Heck, he’s having a hard time even getting strikes at this...

Former Rockie Hirsh: altitude not an excuse

Former Rockies pitcher Jason Hirsh talked with Mile High Sports Radio’s Eric Goodman and Zach Fogg (AM 1340) about the recent pandemonium in Colorado baseball. He discussed the Tulo trade, what was received out of the trade and most shockingly, saying that the common theory about altitude affecting pitching is just an excuse.

Watch this warp-speed tour through Wrigley Field catacombs with John Axford

Players consistently rate the Wrigley Field's facilities for visiting teams the worst in Major League Baseball. It's cramped, outdated and lacks the equipment common in most modern clubhouses. "It's jammed," former Mets and current Blue Jays catcher Josh Thole said of the clubhouse. "Put 20 reporters in there, and it gets even more jammed. There's no place to hide out. It's significantly...

Jay Bruce and Carlos Gonzalez: Twin trade chips

The market has moved forward as we approach the trading deadline, but its shape is still difficult to make out, especially in terms of hitters. We have seen the mega-deal, with franchise cornerstone Troy Tulowitzki moving from the Colorado Rockies to the Toronto Blue Jays. We have seen the rental, with Ben Zobrist helping the […]

Troy Tulowitzki felt 'blindsided' by trade to Blue Jays

Troy Tulowitzki knew he could be traded before Friday’s deadline, but the former Colorado Rockies shortstop apparently expected a little more warning than what he received. According to Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post, Tulowitzki heard of the deal with the Toronto Blue Jays when he was removed during the ninth inning of Monday’s game against the Chicago Cubs. Per Saunders...

Trade of Troy Tulowitzki still stings, even if it was inevitable for Colorado Rockies fans

  It’s not fun. This game we all love isn’t supposed to stab us in the back. The business side isn’t supposed to get in the way of the passion. Late on Monday night, the reality of the pain that comes with being a fan smacked fans of the Colorado Rockies hard. It was the first time pain like that was felt since nearly four years ago, when the club dealt Ubaldo Jimenez. With...

LaTroy Hawkins on trade from Colorado to Toronto: 'I'm happy to be back at sea level'

One of the most well-traveled players in Major League Baseball history, 42-year-old relief pitcher LaTroy Hawkins is once again changing uniforms in a surprising Rockies-Blue Jays swap that also sends shortsop Troy Tulowitzki to Toronto. "Everything feels good," said Hawkins, who's posted a 3.63 ERA in 2015 over 22.1 innings pitched this season. "I'm excited to go to a place where...

Jeff Hoffman, Miguel Castro go to Rockies in Tulowitzki trade

Jeff Hoffman, Miguel Castro and Jose Reyes are three of the four players the Colorado Rockies are receiving in return for Troy Tulowitzki — a haul that has left many people disappointed so far. Looking at the return, Colorado is getting back at least two young, lively arms. Jeff Hoffman is a 6-foot-4 right-handed pitcher...Read More

Used CarGo for sale – could Carlos Gonzalez get dealt this week?

Back in mid-May I wrote about the prospect of trading Carlos Gonzalez. The point of that article was to suggest that the Colorado Rockies had missed out on their chance to trade the one-time MVP caliber outfielder. As we are now just one week away from the trade deadline CarGo’s name is popping up in rumors again. However I’m not sure enough has happened to change my mind about...

Colorado Rockies trade rumors: John Axford edition

There is now a mere 13 days left until the Major League Baseball trade deadline, and it is crunch time for the teams that need impact acquisitions. As I have said week after week, the Colorado Rockies are one of these teams. Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez are naturally the two players that they will receive the most out of, but they cannot be the only option for the trade block...
