Rockies closer John Axford making All-Star case

The latest All-Star Game fan voting updates were released on Monday, and with less than a week remaining for voting, it doesn’t look like the Rockies will have any starters on the National League squad. Nolan Arenado has not budged at fourth among third baseman in votes despite putting up MVP-like numbers. While Arenado will surely be put on the roster as a reserve, there’s another...

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 […]

Arenado stays hot but Rockies fall to Giants

If baseball were more like basketball and the team truly went as its stars go, the Colorado Rockies would be riding one of the hottest streaks in baseball thanks to Nolan Arenado. The third baseman is hitting .407 in his last seven games with eight home runs, 15 RBI and a goliath 1.333 slugging percentage. Arendao drove in eight runs during the Rockies’ weekend series against San...

Nolan Arenado continues impressive week in Colorado Rockies loss

  This is starting to get ridiculous. Despite the Colorado Rockies 6-3 loss to the San Francisco Giants on Sunday at AT&T Park, the story remains the emergence of Nolan Arenado as not just an All-Star, but as a superstar. The third baseman stepped to the plate in the 1st inning with a runner on second base and one out. When Giants starter Madison Bumgarner tried to slip a slider...

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...

Colorado Rockies would be well served to learn some lessons in San Francisco

  It must be nice to be a fan of the San Francisco Giants. Those who watch the Colorado Rockies can only be jealous. Saturday afternoon at AT&T Park was the latest example of who the Giants are, from top-to-bottom of their entire organization. The Rockies, up three runs early, were never able to get comfortable, and were never able to bury the Giants for a simple reason. The...

Arenado and CarGo propel Colorado Rockies offense as bullpen holds on

  Tommy Kahnle let out a deep breath. The reliever put a scare into the fanbase of the Colorado Rockies, but ultimately, he struck out Buster Posey with the tying run on base to end the game. The Rockies hung on to steal a victory at AT&T Park in San Francisco. The late scare could easily have overshadowed what the Rockies had accomplished early in the game. However, what both...

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...

Colorado entered the ninth inning with a 6-2 lead after some late inning offense from Troy Tulowitzki and the rest of the Rockies. The game was tied until the sixth inning when the teams traded runs, Colorado’s coming off a Nolan...

Rockies closer John Axford blows save on June 24, again

June 24 is not a good date for Rockies closer John Axford. The right-hander blew his first save of the season on Wednesday (June 24). It was actually his first blown save since -- you guessed it -- June 24 of last year.Bad luck for Axford? The Rockies closer looks at the positive side. Per, he said, "I've had a lot of good things happen for me personally this year -- a lot...

Colorado Rockies trade rumors: Troy Tulowitzki edition

With the trade deadline approaching, Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki is a big name that is being looked at by general managers across the league. Although Colorado is beginning to get back on track in the 2015 season, their roster isn’t at October baseball caliber quite yet. Using Tulowitzki in a deal may allow the organization to begin a productive rebuilding process...
