Troy Tulowitzki.Major League Baseball has a very Little League-ish rule mandating that every team must have one participant in the All-Star game. You can always tell which are the bad teams, because their All Star will be batting about .270. Troy Tulowitzki and his .268 batting average were ... More >>
Carlos Gonzalez.If the Rockies start hitting like a real Rockies team and play like so many expected them to, last night's win over the Giants will be viewed as a turning point. If the Rockies continue to roll out a lineup full of players hitting in the .200s, the victory will be an aberratio ... 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."
Troy Tulowitzki.Just to provide a little perspective on the Rockies having the best record in baseball: Their opponents are a combined 25-36 this year. But they've set a 12-3 mark without any meaningful contribution from ace Ubaldo Jimenez and even less from veteran pitcher Aaron Cook. Fresh ... More >>
Ubaldo JimenezOn Friday, the Rockies lost a nail-biter and left the game worried about their starting pitcher's thumb cuticle. On Saturday, the Rockies won a nail-biter and left the game worried about their starting pitcher's blister. And while both games against the Arizona Diamondbacks were ... More >>
Jim Tracy: One big reason for optimism.On April 6 of last year -- opening day for the Colorado Rockies -- I fearlessly predicted that the team would end the 2009 campaign with a meager 72 victories.

Who was more deserving of the honor ... More >>
Ryan Spilborghs.You're the Philadelphia Phillies -- the defending World Series champs, and winner of three consecutive National League East crowns. You've got a lineup filled with stars like Jimmy Rollins, Ryan Howard, Cliff Lee. The entire sporting press, and much of the public, expects you ... More >>
The Padres' Adrian Gonzalez.Watching the Rockies' 4-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds last night wasn't as suspenseful as anticipated given the circumstances; the Reds had taken the lead late, only to surrender it to Seth Smith, who singled with the bases loaded in the ninth. After all, the ... More >>
Tulo.Local sports yakkers have been hyping the Colorado Rockies' current homestand as the most important in the history of the franchise, which strikes me as an example of enthusiasm trumping short-term memory. Seems to me there were some pretty key series at Coors Field during the run-up to ... More >>
A baseball card collection that features Colorado's boys of summer dresses in the fashions of Denver designers. The stylish and wonderfully aesthetic left-handed swinger Seth Smith rounds the bases in a classic gown from a recent runway collection of James Silvrants...
