Colorado Rockies: Charlie Blackmon is in a “Nazty” slump

Lost in the shuffle of all the offensive struggles the Colorado Rockies have faced this season, there is one player who is currently in the midst of a slump that has been overlooked. Whether it’s because other players are having a much harder go of it, most notably Ian Desmond and Carlos Gonzalez, or because […] Colorado Rockies: Charlie Blackmon is in a “Nazty” slump - Rox Pile - Rox Pile - A Colorado Rockies Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Rockies 5, Giants 3: Rockies prevail in 12 innings

Two teams played baseball and one of them won When two struggling offenses meet in the cold, damp air of the San Francisco Bay, one would expect runs to be at a premium. That was indeed the case on Thursday as the Rockies (finally) toppled the Giants 5-3 in 12 innings. Merciful relief The Rockies struggled to string hits together all night (sound familiar?) so when it got to the 12th inning, they decided to walk instead. Chris Iannetta and Charlie Blackmon walked and Nolan Arenado came to the plate with two on and two outs with the opportunity to continue his Giant-killing ways. Instead,...

The Morning After: Opposing pitchers continue make someone not named Charlie Blackmon or Nolan Arenado beat them

When facing a Colorado offense that has yet to demonstrate the ability to hit from top to bottom -- much less be consistent overall -- the strategy of opposing pitchers has become increasingly clear: Don't let the Rockies' big dogs beat you.

Is the Rockies offense actually overachieving? A breakdown of the splits

Is the Rockies offense actually overachieving? A breakdown of the splits

How the team fares against righties and lefties, and what to do about it The Rockies have a roster—and in particular an outfield—full of left-handed hitters. Carlos Gonzáles, Gerardo Parra, Charlie Blackmon, and David Dahl are all left-handed, and the Rockies have regularly placed utilityman Pat Valaika in the starting lineup against lefties to avoid left-on-left matchups. Earlier this year, the Rockies demoted Mike Tauchmann and called up Noel Cuevas, presumably because (in addition to Tauchmann’s struggles) Cuevas provided a much-needed right-handed bat off the bench. Yet while all...

Colorado Rockies: Charlie Blackmon’s rank among the best center fielders

The Colorado Rockies have traditionally had a solid offense. Their outfield is no different. The leader and main superstar in the outfield is quite clearly Charlie Blackmon. In fact, Blackmon has been one of the best players in all of baseball this season, and it is no stretch to say he could be the best […] Colorado Rockies: Charlie Blackmon’s rank among the best center fielders - Rox Pile - Rox Pile - A Colorado Rockies Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Rockies news and links for May 5, 2018 Colorado Rockies are finally finding their offensive power, but will that be enough? | Mile High SportsThe Rockies continue to lead the National League in home runs, but that’s about all that has been going right for the team offensively. The team’s overall on-base percentage of .303 bests only the San Diego Padres and the Miami Marlins in the NL, two teams whose names are not synonymous with offensive juggernauts. This is no fault of Nolan Arenado, Charlie Blackmon, or the currently-injured DJ LeMahieu, who have all been among the best offensive...

Rockies rout Cubs 11-2 behind dominant Tyler Anderson

Nolan Arenado led the charge with two home runs and five RBI The Rockies offense, long lying dormant and rumored dead, erupted for 11 runs at Wrigley Field on Wednesday afternoon en route to an 11-2 pummeling of the Chicago Cubs to take the series. TACO’S! In the first five games of the Rockies’ current road trip they combined to score seven runs and before last night’s 3-1 victory they were averaging one (1) run per game. But unlike Tuesday’s win, the Rockies managed to get more hits than just solo homers. Nolan Arenado hit a two-run shot in the first, Charlie Blackmon singled one...

Chad Bettis, Adam Ottavino, Trevor Story, Wade Davis, and Charlie Blackmon receive the spotlight. In April, Bettis threw nearly as many innings as he did in all of 2017. While his 2.43 ERA is considered unsustainable by his 4.37 FIP, both his results and peripherals are looking better than a year ago. In Ottavino’s case, not many a reliever...
