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 >>
Where will Juan Pierre be listed? Thanks to the Colorado Rockies' decision to send Matt Holliday to the Oakland A's for three players who don't appear to equal the sum of his parts (see "Matt Holliday and the Rockies' Case of Premature Ejaculation" for details), fans will soon have to suffer throu ...

Wouldn't you have liked to have one of these in 2007? What were you doing one year ago today? I certainly remember what I was up to -- frantically trying to buy tickets online to see the Boston Red Sox play the unlikely and amazing Colorado Rockies in their first-ever World Series. It was, of cou ... More >>
Single-game tickets for Colorado Rockies games will go on sale Febuary 16, and yes, the club will once again rely on Paciolan (now owned by Ticketmaster) for Internet purchases. Paciolan is the California company that handled last Octoberâ€™s World Series ticket debacle, which infuriated so many bas ... More >>
Cranky Steve Horner won’t stay in his corner.
The local media wielded a purple crayon during the Rockies' unlikely run, leading to an excess of everything but restraint.
So... you thought you could pick up a daily newspaper in Denver and not see a Colorado Rockies story on the cover? Think again. On October 30, two days after the Rockies were bested in the World Series by the Boston Red Sox, the Rocky Mountain News and the Denver Post again published special World S ... More >>
Ah, yes, I remember now: thatâ€™s what it feels like to lose. It had been so long since the Rockies had dropped even one game â€“ much less two in a row â€“ I had forgotten the word for that queasy, tingling sensation that surfaces up from the top of the stomach and settles around the midsection of ...

In this space yesterday, I vigorously defended my fellow Red Sox fansâ€™ honor against unfounded snipes by over-eager Rockies fans. The Red Sox are not the evil empire, I argued. Sure, we get a little crazy, a little annoying, but thatâ€™s love and itâ€™s beautiful. Donâ€™t hate us because weâ€™re b ... More >>
The first game of the 2007 World Series between the Boston Red Sox and YOUR Colorado Rockies started perfectly: With Fox's Jeanne Zelasko giving Eric Byrnes shit for being a loud-mouthed douchenozzle. Byrnes committed the first broadcasting boner of the evening -- and not the last -- when he said th ... More >>
October 24, when the Colorado Rockies face off against the Boston Red Sox in game one of the 2007 World Series, should be the biggest day in years for the print versions of the Denver Post and the Rocky Mountain News. Whereas a hefty percentage of folks currently prefer to get their news online, loc ... More >>
Subscribers to the Rocky Mountain News and Denver Post who still haven't seen their October 24 papers (see this blog for details) needn't worry about missing out on special sections commemorating the Colorado Rockies' World Series berth. They'll have plenty of chances to get more thanks to the Sport ... More >>
They thought they were supporting their club. The Rockies and the City and County of Denver thought otherwise.
This morning on the Fan, host Mike Evans beseeched Rockies boosters to knock off the "Hooterville stuff" -- the sort of crazed, over-the-top blather than makes it abundantly clear to folks outside the area that both the team and its fans are in previously unvisited territory. Now if only reps from t ... More >>
What could be more surprising than the Rockies being in the World Series? Paris Hilton joining a nunnery? O.J. Simpson admitting that he not only killed his wife but also JonBenet Ramsey? Dick Cheney showing up at a session of Congress wearing a turban? Whatever your answer, the Rockies made it -- ... More >>
Hereâ€™s my impression of you begging me to write a blog about the Colorado Rockies: Adam, everyone is writing so much about the Rockies we really want to hear your perspective! We remember you championing them in print long ago this season; also, we remember your many tales about supporting this t ... More >>
The national pastime has passed the Rockies by -- again.
From the week of October 16, 2003
Keep your eye on the ball.
A World Series miracle could save a devilish year.
Colorado mopes along with baseball's other underachievers.
Despite a time-out for terror, 2001's roster was full.
The Boys of Summer and Joys of Autumn fade into baseball's Icy Winter of Discontent.
Come to think of it, a Subway Series might be a good thing.
