Pitchers and catchers reported this week. You know what that means, right? Yeah, probably nothing. We're not going to get our hopes up here. I mean, aside from our new skipper, Walt Weiss, a beloved former Rockies shortstop, there's really no reason to believe this season will be any less agonizing ... 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 >>
Baseball season officially starts today (in Tokyo), and artist Kyle Banister couldn't be more excited. He'll be performing a live sidewalk chalk-art exhibition at the corner of Blake and 21st streets during the Rockies home opener on April 9, he's the resident artist for Root Sports this season, and ...

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 ... More >>
Tulowitzki.The Rockies should have known it wouldn't be their night when Chris Nelson decided to play "Pin the baseball on the coach's face" with Rich Dauer before the game in a gaffe seen in the background of an ESPN live shot. Then the Rockies' unfortunate play was caught by ESPN cameras -- ... More >>
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 >>
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 >>
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 >>
Rockies Coca-Cola hat.With the Colorado Rockies mired in a weeks-long slump, there are fewer and fewer reasons to go the ballpark in the heat of the summer. But just because the product on the field is suffering doesn't mean the product at the gates is doing the same. We're talking about prom ... 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.
Troy Tulowitzki.A drum roll, please, for these Denver blog posts. Inside the Rockies predicts only one member of the team will make this year's all-star team -- and even though Todd Helton deserves it, he plays a very competitive position. So who'll make the grade? BigMedia.org's Jason Salz ... 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.Today's rain-out of the Rockies-Mets game means there will be only slightly less power on display than if the teams had played. The Rockies, perennially amongst league leaders in many offensive categories, have gone disturbingly limp at the plate in the early going.
Troy Tulowitzki.The cyber-world birthed these Denver blog posts. Purple Row's Andrew Martin notes that the Rockies' aren't the only team with hitting issues -- but something gotta give. Free Colorado's Ari Armstrong on why he's not a Libertarian. Colorado Independent's Scot Kersgaard wonde ... 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 >>
Jessica Simpson.Pop trollop Jessica Simpson may not have really hexed Dallas quarterback Tony Romo when the two were an item. But with Troy Tulowitzki just shaking off the curse of Katy Perry, we still have reason to worry about any connection to J-Simp, who'll reportedly make an appearance a ... More >>
Tulo's nightmare.Troy Tulowitzki isn't known for his Aprils. Or rather, he is known for his Aprils. He's known for sucking in them. Over the past few years, the Colorado Rockies' $134 million Gold Glove-winning All-Star shortstop has looked like a Little Leaguer through the first month of th ... 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 >>
Troy Tulowitzki.The Rockies are the best team in baseball. As of this writing they're a half game ahead of the defending World Series Champion San Francisco Giants. We're not sure what all the talk of grapefruit and cactus is about or why the good players keep leaving after half a game, but ... More >>
The Colorado Lottery's Mega Millions jackpot rose to $330 million on Tuesday. That's a lot of green, and while we all like to fantasize about what we'd do with our winnings -- pay the mortgage? - can we all agree to donate that money to the Broncos and the Rockies?
CarGoBroncos? What Broncos? Colorado Rockies season officially begins today, on the day after the pathetic (yet strangely exciting -- near the end, anyway) Denver Broncos closed out their worst year in history with a 4-12 record, no coach and a huge number of problems.
FlickrTroy Tulowitzki.It's two o'clock, so it must be our Denver blog post triptych. Purple Row's Andrew T. Fisher writes that the Rockies' $157 million contract with Troy Tulowitzki is the eighth largest in MLB history -- and it's mostly Yankees in front of him. Face the State's Greg Campb ... More >>
Troy Tulowitzki.We now bring you the first Denver blog post roundup of the week. The headline offered by Andrew Martin on Purple Row's Monday Rockpile -- "Stick a Fork In It" -- speaks volumes about the Rockies' playoff chances. Better luck next year.

A Flickr photoTroy Tulowitzki.We caught these three Denver blog posts. Purple Row's Andrew Martin chronicles Troy Tulowitzki's Wednesday heroics. Hope they're contagious. The Colorado Independent's Scot Kersgaard on Dan Maes's latest campaign fines -- which could turn into an even finer mes ... More >>
Miguel Tejada.Who's to blame for the Colorado Rockies snapping their ten-game winning streak with a 6-4 loss to the San Diego Padres at home last night? The starting pitcher, who gave up a two-run shot to Miguel Tejada before many fans had found their seats? The bullpen, which allowed the Pad ... More >>
Troy Tulowitzki = much cooler than me.I had the fortune of attending the Rockies game on Sunday, and couldn't help but notice something that I found odd: When Troy Tulowitzki, the Rockies' studly shortstop, strolled to the plate in the bottom of the first inning, he did it to the poppy sound ...

"Has everyone forgotten about me?"May these Denver blogs be with you. In his blog roundup, Bronco Talk's Mr. East links to a piece in which SI's Peter King wonders about the lack of love for Donovan McNabb, who'd previously been identified as a Broncos target. Now that Brady Quinn's arrived, ... More >>
Most commentators discussing the Philadelphia Phillies' 5-1 dismantling of the Colorado Rockies yesterday came to the conclusion that the P-men simply outclass the Rocks on every level -- an easy conclusion to draw if you suffered through the last five innings. But amid the destruction, there ... More >>
Ian Stewart.The Colorado Rockies' 4-3 victory against the Cincinnati Reds yesterday, thanks to a timely solo shot by Ian Stewart, means the club has won five of the first six games during its ongoing homestand, thereby taking advantage of their extremely favorable September schedule's first p ...

Ryan Spliborghs.This morning on ESPN Radio, Jason Smith noted that only one walk-off grand slam in Major League Baseball history had taken place in a later inning than Ryan Spilborghs' 14th inning shocker that lifted the Colorado Rockies to an unlikely win over the San Francisco Giants last n ...

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 >>
Troy Tulowitzki near the beginning of cycle night, in an image broadcast by ESPN.On Monday night, Troy Tulowitzki hit for the cycle against the Chicago Cubs, becoming just the second player in Major League Baseball history (after the Red Sox's John Valentin) to complete this feat and make an ...

John Valentin.Last night, Troy Tulowitzki had one of the best nights ever by a member of the Colorado Rockies, driving in seven runs and hitting for the cycle (thanks to a wild sprint that stretched a double into triple) in an 11-5 victory over the Chicago Cubs. Along the way, Tulo became jus ... More >>
