Kris Bryant is staying in the NL West. According to Jon Heyman, the former Rookie of the Year has signed with the Colorado Rockies on a seven-year, $181 million deal. The Rockies make quite the surprising move as they now have a standout player on their rebuilding roster. The 6’5″ 230 lb third baseman will bring a […]

Cubs 4, Rockies 3 (10) (This game was the result of a simulation done through What If Sports. It matched the Colorado Rockies All-Time Team against the Chicago Cubs All-Time Team. This game did not actually happen.) Only in a parallel universe could such a thing happen. Surely not in our untidy universe could the greatest ballplayers […]

Rockies All-Time
Caleb Begley - Feb 22, 2022

The Colorado Rockies are, for all intents and purposes, reaching the end of their young years as a franchise. Entering their thirtieth season of operation, the team has won 2,133 contests, made five postseason appearances, and won one pennant. They still seek their first World Series championship. In fact, they’re still so relatively new that […]

Coors Field in Colorado has been known as the most hitter friendly ballpark in the game for years. Due to the high altitude, baseballs fly farther, and pitches break less, leading to increased offensive numbers from many players. Pitchers are wary of signing large deals with the Colorado Rockies, since the success rate there isn’t […]

Simply stated, Todd Helton is the greatest player in Colorado Rockies history. Granted, the franchise is only 29 years old. Yet, if someone were asked to sum up Helton’s legacy in one sentence, that would be the accurate way to state it. That is a pretty good opening line to one day read on Helton’s […]

Trevor Story is one of the marquee names still available on the free-agent market. The two-time all-star shortstop is 29 years old has played the entirety of his career with the Colorado Rockies. While 2021 was not his finest season, Story is one of the best shortstops in the game. Going back to 2018, Story […]

Doug Winkey - Aug 3, 2021

The trade deadline came and went for the Colorado Rockies with barely a hint of activity that dissatisfied many. Nobody of note left town, and the only real moves involved undoing some of the moves made under the previous general manager, Jeff Bridich. Colorado went from a playoff contender a few years ago to one […]

Ashton Goudeau
Doug Winkey - Jul 30, 2021

The Colorado Rockies have reacquire pitcher Ashton Goudeau from the Cincinnati Reds in exchange for cash considerations. Goudeau was originally claimed by the Pittsburgh Pirates in November, but he then spent several months being selected by various other teams off waivers until he finally ended up with the Reds. C. Trent Rosecrans of the Athletic […]

Mychal Givens
Drew Lutts - Jul 28, 2021

The Cincinnati Reds have made another move to bolster their bullpen. Late Tuesday night they completed a trade with the New York Yankees for Luis Cessa and Justin Wilson. Wednesday morning, they acquired Colorado Rockies reliever Mychal Givens. In return, the Rockies received minor league right-handers Case Williams and Noah Davis. This is a huge […]

Doug Winkey - Jul 14, 2021

Giving a Colorado Rockies draft grade is always an interesting thing for a few different reasons. The most important is that whatever a player’s general projection might be, it immediately requires some mental judgment due to the organization’s various ballparks. Playing in Albuquerque and Denver is much different compared to many cities. However, that should […]

Doug Winkey - May 24, 2021

The Colorado Rockies bullpen has been a problem for years, and given Coors Field’s effects, 2021 is no different. The team has struggled with consistency and is currently near the bottom of the WAR leaderboard for MLB relief groups. How has this happened and can the team recover to salvage anything over the next few […]

Doug Winkey - May 17, 2021

It has taken a few years, but the Colorado Rockies might finally be watching Ryan McMahon develop into a quality major leaguer. The former second-round selection is posting the best numbers of his career. That is thanks largely to regular playing time. There is a lot of baseball left in 2021, but the 26-year-old hitter […]

When it comes to pitching, 300 wins is the equivalent to 500 home runs; or, at least, this is what a certain school of thought espouses. It is the gold standard, the pinnacle of what any pitcher can accomplish. Winning 300 games involves a lot of dedication and a lot of practice. It means showing […]

As of this writing, the 29-year-old right-hander has four saves, three wins, and a 1.06 ERA. The former starter has seen his career change dramatically for the better. Always […]

If you’ve followed the Oakland Athletics at all this year, you’d know that the A’s bats have been a glaring weakness of the team. The A’s came into Monday’s action in Detroit as losers of nine straight–with a team batting average of .200. The team’s OBP hadn’t faired much better. The A’s packed their bags […]

Things do not look good in the city of brotherly love.

The Phils have slowly clawed their way back up the standings and […]
