Does that mean he'll hang onto the astonishing Castle ... More >>
Last week, we reported about the arrest of Dennis Esquibel in the tragic hit and run that killed Laura McDermott. Shortly thereafter, Esquibel's mother claimed he wasn't actually driving at the time of the collision, while the police insisted otherwise. A copy of Esquibel's probable cause statement ... More >>

But it's not that simple. He was reportedly joined in the car that caused the fatal crash by two other people -- and his mother, who owns t ... More >>
Among other talents, porn star Tori Black is known for, well, blowing, as evidenced by her win in the Best Oral Sex Scene category at the 2011 AVN Awards. As such, she'd fit in perfectly on the Colorado Rockies pitching staff, which is also expert at blowing...leads, as happened again in an agonizin ... More >>
When a pitcher gives up a grand slam that left the hitter's bat at 122 miles per hour and broke part of the stadium when it landed, it's a pretty good sign the end is near for that pitcher -- especially when said pitcher is 49 years old. Two starts ago, the Rockies' Jamie Moyer gave up one such bomb ... More >>
This isn't just another one of those "Jamie Moyer is really old, but still doing things" stories. No, it's a "Jamie Moyer is really old and still doing things, but it's really depressing because it's basically the only highlight of the Rockies season" stories. See the difference? At 49-years-old, al ... More >>
Westword feature subject Jamie Moyer is baseball's unlikeliest story. At 49, and coming off of major elbow surgery, he's not only become the oldest player ever to win a game, he's also managed to pitch well enough to be considered the Rockies's ace, though that may say just as much about the Rockies ...

Every story about Rockies pitcher Jamie Moyer, including our cover story this week by Caleb Hannan, prominently features the word "old." But because, rightly or wrongly, that word can have a negative connotation in our society, we decided to focus for once on something young in relation to the 49-ye ... More >>
The best reason to have Jamie Moyer in the Colorado Rockies clubhouse is that he's a good pitcher with the team's best earned-run average. The second best reason is that it means the Rockies hitters don't have to face him. The subject of this week's cover story, "For 49-year-old pitcher Jamie Moyer, ... More >>
This week, Colorado Rockies pitcher Jamie Moyer became the oldest Major League Baseball pitcher to win a game. But that's not his only recent claim to fame.
Moyer has also been named to the TopTenRealEstateDeals.com list of best MLB players' homes for sale by virtue of a spectacular spread in Seatt ... More >>
Starting tomorrow, Aurora will play host to the International Powerlifting Federation World Masters Bench Press Championships. As explained in our cover story about tourism in Aurora, "Wish You Were Here!," local powerlifting champions Dan and Jennifer Gaudreau worked with the fledgling Visit Aurora ... 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 >>
