This season, there's been nary a discouraging word said about Broncos QB Peyton Manning, who's on one of the most spectacular runs in NFL history. But the medical journal Pediatrics is an exception to this rule. A new study just shared in the publication evaluates athlete endorsements in food market ... More >>
Almost as shocking as the DUI arrest of Todd Helton, mainstay of the Colorado Rockies, was how blotto he looked in the mug shot he earned with his bust. But how does it stack up to the most memorable athletes' mug shots of all time? Find out by eyeballing our top twenty collection, featuring a whopp ... More >>
In May, we shared a post featuring personal stories of victims in ten unsolved Denver murders, with the information provided by Families of Homicide Victims and Missing Persons, an organization devoted to making sure no case or loved one is forgotten. Unfortunately, there are many more tragic event ... More >>
Assuming Jamie Moyer doesn't pitch in a playoff game (not likely) or break his hip while covering first base (somewhat likely), last night will be his signature moment this season. By pitching seven innings and allowing only two unearned runs in the Rockies' 5-3 win over San Diego, he became, at 49 ... More >>
Yeah, the Colorado Rockies don't have an "elite starting pitcher." They don't have a "guy who has played third base in the majors before." They don't have a "reliable fourth outfielder." You know what the Rockies do have? A bunch of old guys! Also, they have some youngins' they're relying on and two ... More >>
Update: Rockies manager Jim Tracy got his wish, assuming the five-game suspension Cleveland Indians pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez received for drilling Troy Tulowitzki on Sunday is enough for him -- and it might not be considering the vitriol he expressed towards his former ace after the game. The onetime ... More >>
Cuddyer.While other teams like the Miami Marlins and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim are spilling money on free agents like a drunk at the bar who just won the lotto, the Rockies are making un-sexy yet sound acquisitions. The latest and best came Friday when word leaked that the Rockies were cl ... More >>
Street.After your Colorado Rockies traded closer Huston Street to the San Diego Padres yesterday for a player to be named later, General Manager Dan O'Dowd made sure to tell MLB.com that the organization didn't just dump money in the deal, but created opportunities for players inside the orga ...

Troy Tulowitzki.Examining the Rockies' season is a lot like an autopsy. Something has gone horribly wrong and now it's time to figure out why. At the beginning of the season the Rockies had very legitimate aspirations of winning their first National League West division title, if not more. Th ... More >>
Pomeranz.If you told Rockies fans at the beginning of the year that on September 11, Carlos Gonzalez, Troy Tulowitzki and Todd Helton would not be playing and the highlight of the game for a sub-.500 team would be a 6-foot-5 rookie pitcher from Mississippi, they might have punched you in the ...

Sky SoxJacobs.So far, the most notable moment of the Rockies season was when management traded Ubaldo Jimenez, the best pitcher in team history. And now we have another notable -- but not positive event -- with which to mark the season: Mike Jacobs, first baseman for the Rockies' Triple-A te ... More >>
Video below.Talk about a metaphor for the Rockies' season. In the background of a Bobby Valentine live shot on ESPN last night, sharp-eyed viewers saw third-base coach Rich Dauer get drilled in the face with a cross-diamond throw from Chris Nelson, reportedly breaking his nose in the process. ...

Ubaldo Jimenez.The Rockies won't know how they made out on the Ubaldo Jimenez trade until next year at the earliest. But based on Jimenez's first two starts with the Cleveland Indians, especially last night's gem, Colorado could be feeling some seller's remorse.
Ubaldo Jimenez.This weekend, Ubaldo Jimenez, the greatest pitcher in Colorado Rockies history, is expected to make his first start for the Cleveland Indians. Which got us to thinking: What pro athletes who left Colorado teams either by choice or force have been most painful for local fans to ... More >>
Thanks to all the unfounded trade rumors, Jimenez has no idea what team he actually plays for.Even a reporter for a high school paper will tell you, it's kind of a basic rule of journalism: Get more than one source and don't just print anonymous rumors. It's what separates a news source from ... More >>
Ubaldo Jimenez.Watching Ubaldo Jimenez in the first half of last season was like nothing Rockies fans have ever experienced. The franchise has never had an elite ace the rest of the league was jealous of, and Jimenez was historically great to start last season. But everything that has happene ... More >>
Ubaldo Jimenez.If mediocrity was a woman, she would have a restraining order on the current Rockies team. The only thing notable about this team is that Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez are both battling nagging injuries. So why not look back on the good times? On the twentieth anniversar ... More >>
FlickrAs Kyle Garratt noted in a post yesterday, the Colorado Rockies stunk up Coors Field on Father's Day. But the 9-1 defeat to the Detroit Tigers wasn't the only disappointment for dads. Prior to the game, Rockies personnel gave out excellent Troy Tulowitzki jerseys, but not to fathers, m ... More >>
Troy Tulowitzki.After his career debut at Coors Field, Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander told MLB.com that early in the game, "my fastball control wasn't anywhere near where it should be" and described his breaking ball as "okay." Yet his skills were enough to toss a complete game against t ... More >>
A friend of mine used to sell T-shirts in college. He was putting himself through school, along with a few scholarships, and he needed every dollar he could get. So he'd come up with a creative design idea, get a small loan from his mom and have the T-shirts printed. Then he'd go door-to-door ... More >>
Damn you, Dinger!Every day we edge closer to the hideous sports wasteland that is mid-summer--when all we've got is baseball and other sports are nothing but arrests, rumors and deaths both hilarious and sad. So let's put off hiking, climbing and anything else outdoors, glue ourselves to our ... More >>
Carlos Gonzalez.Congratulations to the Colorado Rockies. Last night's excessively exasperating 7-1 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers assured the Rockies of baseball's worst record in May. For the month, they sit at 8-20.
Given that the only sports more American than baseball are truck-pulls and war, come spring, it's once again time to turn our attention to that most grueling contest of standing around with occasional bursts of activity. These days, actually, there are a lot of sports more in-line with the Am ... More >>
Carlos Gonzalez. The Rockies came into their three game series against the San Francisco Giants with the best record in the league. And then the defending World Series Champions performed the baseball equivalent of telling the Rocks, "We don't give a shit."
You'll find plenty of veggie options inside those doors.Most vegetarians remember the days when attending a ball game meant subsisting on popcorn and peanuts -- not bad as snacks go, but let's be honest: Peanuts are no substitute for a ballpark dog. Since 2002, People for the Ethical Treatmen ... More >>
A Flickr photoArmando Galarrago got jobbed.Last night, Detroit's Armando Galarraga got screwed out of a perfect game when umpire Jim Joyce mistakenly called a runner safe with two outs in the ninth. Had Joyce, who's admitted his error, seen straight, Gallaraga would have joined an extremely ... More >>
