ROCKIES RUMORS & GOSSIP

What Happened to Wilin Rosario?

After a breakout 2013 season in which Wilin Rosario hit .292 with 21 home runs, fantasy owners had high hopes entering the 2014 season. Unfortunately, he struggled for the first two months of the season before ultimately finding his way the last four months of the season. During the first two months of the year he had a .225/.261/.395 slash line with a .240 BABIP. In the last four...

Rockies need leadership over loyalty

The Colorado Rockies have played their last baseball of 2014, and their final series, like much of the season, ended on a down note. Baseball may be increasingly impervious to symbolism, but it’s fitting that the team’s season ended on the wrong end of a sweep. For the second straight year, a season that started so promisingly ended with a last-place finish in the National League...

Rockies nosedive to 4th consecutive losing season

DENVER (AP) His team mired in another midsummer nosedive, Colorado Rockies owner Dick Monfort had seen enough and was finally going to do something about it. So, he fired off some emails - to complaining customers. The Rockies' 96-loss season will be remembered for many blunders and missteps, none bigger than in July when Monfort went so far as to say that if the fans weren...

The Record-Setting 2014 Rockies

As the headline notes, the Colorado Rockies set a record this year, but it’s not the kind that they’re going to want to celebrate: they tied the 2006 Indians for the biggest negative difference between their BaseRuns expected record and their actual finish, at least for the years in which we have BaseRuns data, which […]

The Rockies save their worst for last

It wasn’t losing a game in Chicago when the Cubs had to have a catcher pitch in the 16th inning. It wasn’t base-running blunders that made the hosts on SportsCenter chuckle on multiple nights. It wasn’t a bases-clearing wild pitch that seemed to crystallize the team’s lackadaisical attitude. It wasn’t even misspelling the name of their star player on the back of a t-shirt...

LaTroy Hawkins pitched in his 1000th career game. Gets a nice bottle of Dom for it.

I never, ever want LaTroy Hawkins to stop pitching. In no small part because he’s one of the few guys in Major League Baseball who is older than me. But also because he’s just really great. There is literally nothing not to like about the guy. He was a failed starter who, in the 90s, you might have thought you’d never see again and then all he did was rattle off about 15 straight...

Rockies Injury Update: DJ LeMahieu exits with knee sprain

If it wasn't for the Texas Rangers, the Colorado Rockies would probably hold the unfortunate distinction of being MLB's most-injured team this season. DJ LeMahieu can be added to that long list of injuries after coming out of Friday's game with a left knee sprain, as the team tweeted:#Rockies 2B DJ LeMahieu left tonight's game with a left knee sprain.

Rockies' Justin Morneau battling to win his first batting title

Harrison, batting .319, went 3-for-5 in Atlanta on Thursday night to overtake Morneau...

Rockies Injury Update: Jackson Williams undergoes knee sugery

The Colorado Rockies enter the final weekend of the 2014 season against the Los Angeles Dodgers with a record of 66-93, fourth in the National League West. The Rockies have been excellent offensively, ranked third in the Major Leagues in runs scored. But the pitching staff is ranked 30th in ERA at 4.80 and has contributed a lot to the dismal season. On the injury front, rookie catcher...

Rockies Injury Update: Jhoulys Chacin throwing off a mound

The Colorado Rockies head into the final four games of the 2014 season with a record of 66-92, fourth in the National League East. Heading into the off season, there are some bright spots, as the Rockies are second in the league in runs scored. But a woeful pitching staff that is 30th in the Major Leagues in ERA, has largely contributed to the poor season. One good sign for the staff...

Watching teams celebrate should crush the Colorado Rockies decision-makers

Playing out the string isn't too much fun to watch.On Tuesday night it was the Pittsburgh Pirates, a few nights before it was the Angels. Tomorrow night could be the Dodgers turn.Meanwhile, the Colorado Rockies finished a 3-1/2 hour game in San Diego that literally means nothing. It would have been a nail biter--if anyone still cared. Instead, while making his 998th career appearance...

Failure to make changes might hurt the Colorado Rockies more than they think

Dick Monfort simply doesn't get it.Dick Monfort is fiercely loyal. Nearly everyone agrees on that.That is what everyone says about the Colorado Rockies owner. That is why he hasn't done what the owners of 27 other teams have done, some several times, since he hired Dan O'Dowd to be the general manager of the Rockies. Since 1999, when O'Dowd was brought on board, all...

End of season post-mortem: Colorado Rockies

For a minute there, the Rockies looked like they were going to be the Cinderella story of the season. After the first week of May, the Rockies were tied for first place in the NL West much to the surprise of everyone. But by the time the All-Star break hit, however, Colorado was tied for last place in the NL West, much to the surprise of no one. Despite an MVP caliber season...

Why no one talks about Nolan Arenado even though they should

The Colorado Rockies best kept secret is only a secret if you don’t watch the Rockies play. There aren’t many infielders in the game of baseball today that bring the package that Nolan Arenado does. While he has quietly become one of the best third basemen in the league today, perhaps the scariest thing about Nolan Arenado is that he’s 23 years old. There are a lot of reasons...
