Closing The Book on the 2015 Colorado Rockies

  Grantland’s Jonah Keri wrote, “the Rockies could be this year’s out-of-nowhere squad that rides 99th-percentile luck to a big season.” This fell in line with my spring training prediction of 68 or 88 wins for the 2015 Colorado Rockies. There was an alternate universe where Jon Gray was called up 15 days into the season, Troy Tulowitzki played 140 games in Denver, and...

Rockies Rhubarb: What to do with Rex Brothers

On Wednesday night in Arizona, Colorado Rockies left-handed reliever Rex Brothers did what he’s been doing for the better part of his Major League career. He got one left-handed batter out. In the bottom of the seventh inning, with the Rockies down by a run, Brothers got Socrates Brito to ground out softly to second base. Bill and Ted would’ve been proud. Then, manager Walt Weiss...

Projecting Rockies Call-Ups Cristhian Adames & Tom Murphy

At 60-84, the Rockies are not merely way out of contention, but also mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. The team’s in full on rebuild mode these days, and simply put, there aren’t all that many exciting players on their roster. However, they’ve called up a couple of interesting hitters this September who could ultimately develop into useful contributors and help out...

2015 MLB Farewells: Colorado Rockies

It is a chance to book better winter destination vacations for some, emptier seats for most and a chance for reflection for all. For the Colorado Rockies, admittedly the expectations were not high. The rhetoric has been...

End of season post-mortem: 2015 Colorado Rockies

More than anything else with the 2015 Colorado Rockies, I’m surprised they weren’t the first team eliminated from playoff contention. I think that about sums things up – the same problems that have been prevalent in Colorado for years are still around. Preseason Prediction: Chances are if Dinger was going to be arrested for not wearing pants, it would’ve happened by now...

Carlos Gonzalez Has Reminded Us Of His Special Talent

A 32-home run season is a solid achievement, one accomplished last year by only 10 players. That's why what Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez has accomplished the past few months is so amazing. He was a rather highly touted prospect and put together four solid seasons with Colorado, but injuries have marred his career and limited his potential, to a degree. Lately, however...

Jose Reyes hints he wants out of Colorado

    Jose Reyes has spent less than a month with the Colorado Rockies, and it sounds like he has already had enough. Over the weekend, Reyes expressed frustration over the fact that he is inching toward the end of his career and playing for a team that is nowhere close to being a contender. “You come from a ballclub that was competing for a spot in the playoffs,” the 32...
