WATCH: D-backs pitcher fails on quick pitch attempt

There’s a reason why pitchers don’t often try to sneak in a quick fastball to throw hitters off balance, and Diamondbacks pitcher Rubby De La Rosa showed us all why in Tuesday night’s game against the Rockies. De La Rosa was facing Ben Paulsen, and behind 1-0 in the count. He attempted to rectify that by throwing a quick pitch before Paulsen was ready. Home plate umpire...

Rockies' prized SS prospect Story a 'longshot' to be September call-up

It appears as though Colorado Rockies fans won't be getting a sneak peek at the player who could be their next franchise shortstop this year. Manager Walt Weiss told reporters Tuesday that it is unlikely that prized shortstop prospect Trevor Story will be amongst those the Rockies call up with expanded rosters in September. "I don't know if the door is completely shut on that one...

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon Makes Infielder Miss Easy Out With Awesome Slide

Charlie Blackmon is not a household name. The Colorado Rockies outfielder is not one of those guys that makes Sportscenter type plays on a nightly basis, but he certainly pulled one off against the Arizona Diamondbacks Monday night. The D-Backs infielder should have made an easy tag as Blackmon slid into second base.However, thanks to a nifty piece of footwork during his slide that...

Colorado Rockies: Tulo trade “Prospects” have been lights out

  The Rockies dropped their second straight to the Pittsburgh Pirates, meanwhile down on the farm, newly acquired pitchers Jeff Hoffman and Jesus Tinoco have been dominating since the Tulowitzki trade. When the Rockies traded Troy Tulowitzki to the Toronto Blue Jays, GM Jeff Bridich received a lot of heat for trading the franchise centerpiece for “prospects”.  The popular narative...

Built to outlast

The Rockies, when you add them up as a whole, are terrible. But they do have some good players, like Jose Reyes, Carlos Gonzalez, and maybe even their prized rookie pitcher Jon Gray. That group managed to keep things tight with the Pirates for most of the way, and you wondered if they were an unlucky break or a rough inning away from losing a really bad game at home. But you didn’t really...

Gray battles, Cargo homers, Bullpen blows it as Colorado Rockies lose

  Rockies drop game late to the Pirates 5-3 as Jon Gray goes 4.1 IP with a career high 6 K Surely after four major league starts, it’s determined whether a pitcher will be successful or not.  At least that was the narrative of Rockies fans after Jon Gray’s last start where he imploded in 1.2 innings against the Mets.  After a decent bounce back start against the Pirates tonight...

The Rockies come to town

The drill for this series is much the same as the last: the Pirates are playing bad teams at a point in the season where wins are at a premium. There is no reason for the Pirates to not win two or three games against the Rockies at PNC Park this weekend, and if they’re lucky, doing that will make up some ground on the Cardinals for them. Francisco Liriano starts for the Bucs tonight...

Weighing Arenado’s chances at three in a row

The Colorado Rockies finally locked up win No. 50, the last MLB club to accomplish the feat in 2015, on the season on Tuesday night against the Atlanta Braves thanks in part to some nifty glove work by third baseman Nolan Arenado. The wins may have come few and far between for the Rockies this year, but great defensive play by Arenado is one thing the Rockies have been able to depend...

DJ LeMahieu hits in every spot in order, makes history

Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss finally got the opportunity to cross off a feat he's been wanting to accomplish for a while: bat second baseman DJ LeMahieu in each spot in the batting order. LeMahieu's versatility as a batter due to his speed, batting for average, and run production, has allowed Weiss the flexibility to bat him wherever in the lineup. Heading into this week...

One-on-one with Carlos Gonzalez

Carlos Gonzalez is arguably The Rockies best player. The 2-time all-star, has won 3 Gold Gloves and a batting title. He’s healthy now, and his play reflects that. He was disappointed to see Troy Tulowitzki traded, but understands it’s a business. He wants to play in Denver, and the children of Colorado matter to him. His charity work continues to demonstrate that. He shares his...

Jose Reyes hints he wants out of Colorado

    Jose Reyes has spent less than a month with the Colorado Rockies, and it sounds like he has already had enough. Over the weekend, Reyes expressed frustration over the fact that he is inching toward the end of his career and playing for a team that is nowhere close to being a contender. “You come from a ballclub that was competing for a spot in the playoffs,” the 32...
