We all knew Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez were never going to be traded. Trading guys like that don’t happen until the offseason. Plus, Tulowitzki is on the disabled list, and Gonzalez is nursing an ankle injury again. Read More
This has not been two good weeks for beleaguered Rockies owner Dick Monfort. It started with him going off on couple of frustrated fans who ripped him in an email by saying they shouldn’t come and they don’t deserve a baseball team. Then, he managed to turn more Rockies fans off by saying he thinks his baseball management team is doing a good job. Finally, he told Rockies season ticketholder Christine Voss in a breakfast meeting that if he fires his baseball people, he is worried about breaking the Rockies’ culture (insert laugh track).

Rockies owner Dick Monfort has been in hiding with the Rockies accumulating so many losses since June. It was interesting he spoke to Denver Post’s Patrick Saunders and Mark Kiszla the other day. There’s no question something was up for him to be open to couple of sportswriters. Now we know why. Read More
Rockies owner Dick Monfort finally got around to talking about why his team stinks. It’s the least he could do. Too bad he did not say anything that was newsworthy. Read More
With DJ LeMahieu at third on a throwing error by Kershaw to first in the third inning, the Rockies liked their chances of ending Clayton Kershaw’s scoreless streak. With one out, they had couple of chances to accomplish that feat. Read More
The Rockies suffered their 15th loss in 17 games after a 3-2 loss to the Dodgers last night to start their nine-game homestand. They have won just four times in their past 17 games at Coors Field. The Rockies are on pace to lose 100 games. Despite all that, there was a sellout crowd last night at Coors Field. That’s a win for Rockies owner Dick Monfort. Read More
Anyone that knows baseball understands this season is over for all intents and purposes for the Rockies. That team is bad enough that it’s hard to be optimistic, and it does not help they are plagued with injuries. After a forgettable 1-5 homestand, Rockies fans have to endure three more months of bad Rockies baseball after this week is over. Read More
Matt Holliday was one of Troy Tulowitzki’s best friends when both were teammates with the Rockies. The Rockies shortstop considers the Cardinals outfielder as his mentor when he was called up in 2006. He credits the Cardinals All-Star, Jason Giambi and Todd Helton for helping him being the hitter he is today.
Corey Dickerson has made Rockies fans not pine for the return of Carlos Gonzalez. Since playing everyday after Gonzalez was on the disabled list, he has seized the opportunity of being an everyday player. All he does is hit and make catches in the outfield. Read More
Tyler Matzek basked in a shower bath thrown by Latroy Hawkins while he was interviewed by Root Sports sideline reporter Marc Stout after the Rockies’ 8-2 victory over the Braves last night at Coors Field. Why not? After going through ups and downs in the minors, this is a night Matzek should enjoy. He won’t get another Major League debut ever again. Read More
The Rockies called up Eddie Butler from Double A-Tulsa to not only give a struggling starting rotation a boost, but to give a team some life while trying to get out of this funk. So much for that. He gave them absolutely nothing as the Dodgers hit him hard all night long in his major league debut last night. Read More
Walt Weiss sounded like a man that was fed up with the losing after the Rockies were swept by an awful Diamondbacks team last night in a 12-7 loss at Coors Field. He talked about guys needing to step up and how guys are not pressing since it’s their job. He was fed up with the excuses. If one did not know any better, he would have sounded like a Rockies fan than a Rockies manager.
We haven’t completed the first week of June, and June swoon already started for the Rockies. Fresh from finishing a 2-7 road trip, the Rockies are not off to a great start in their 10-game homestand after taking a 4-2 loss last night to a terrible Diamondbacks team that has become a lost cause this season. With the way it’s going for the Rockies, it won’t be long until they join their last night’s opponent in playing out the season. Read More
Something has not been right with Rex Brothers so far. He isn’t pitching at the level he was pitching last year when he was overpowering hitters by striking them out. Read More
