Carlos Gonzalez is no longer elite, maybe he doesn’t have to be

Carlos Gonzalez is still great. But he is no longer an elite outfielder in MLB, and that's okay.

The Rockies’ starting rotation represents a changing of the guard

The Rockies’ starting rotation represents a changing of the guard

Forget what you know about this team, because these aren’t your father’s Rockies. Bud Black, for years, overachieved as the manager of the San Diego Padres, often winning a lot more games than expected with some truly putrid rosters. So, then, imagine the level of excitement the new Colorado Rockies skipper must feel inheriting an offense that, last season, scored its most runs in any year since 2007 and is loaded with All-Star talent like Nolan Arenado, Carlos Gonzalez, Charlie Blackmon, DJ LeMahieu, and Trevor Story. "This is, offensively, the best group I've had,” Black said in a...

World Baseball Classic 2017: Bracket, Friday’s schedule, and scores

Venezuela is on the brink and Team USA is back in action as Group F tightens up. The action in the World Baseball Classic Pool F is reaching its crucial point. Last night defending champions Dominican Republic took down Venezuela by the score of 3-0. Venezuela is now 0-2 and needs a lot of help to get Carlos Gonzalez to the next round. Old friend and current Padre Jhoulys Chacin pitched well for Venezuela through four innings but manager Omar Vizquel opted to leave him in for the fifth, despite Chacin supposedly being limited to 60-65 pitches. He ultimately gave up a leadoff home run to...

The Rockies will have two players in action tonight facing off on different teams for the first time! Nolan Arenado and USA face Carlos Gonzalez and Venezuela at 7 pm MT at Petco Park in San Diego. The Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico played a tense game last night in the opener for Pool F that featured lineups that made the game far more like an All-Star Game than an exhibition. Puerto Rico prevailed 3-1, ending the DR’s streak of 11 straight WBC wins dating back to the 2009...

Rockies stars ready to compete in World Baseball Classic

Colorado Rockies news and notes for Thursday, March 9, 2017 For some funny reason, there was no Rockies baseball game yesterday (do you really need days off in spring training?). However, a few Rockies stars participated in some World Baseball Classic warm-up games. Venezuela took down the Kansas City Royals 11-0 in Surprise, Arizona and Carlos Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with a double. Meanwhile, in Ft Myers, Florida, the Minnesota Twins came from behind to beat Team USA, 3-2.

NL West Notes: Carlos Gonzalez extension talks stopped, Alex Wood competing for roster spot

Here’s the latest from around the National League Central. The Rockies attempted to discuss an extension with outfielder Carlos Gonzalez, but talks have since been placed “on hold,” according to FanRag Sports’ Jon Heyman.
