Should the Rockies trade for a starting pitcher?

Should the Rockies trade for a starting pitcher?

The bullpen is a mess, but a new starter might be able to offer some relief It was well documented in the offseason that the Rockies spent $106 million building a “super bullpen” to complement their young starting rotation. The plan was to get 6-7 innings out of the starters before turning things over to Jake McGee, Bryan Shaw, and Wade Davis. The season has not panned out this way on either end. With the MLB trade deadline fast approaching and the Rockies only being a few games out of first place, it might be time for the Rockies to start thinking about making a trade. The most...

MLB Trade Deadline: Rockies don’t need to be sellers to trade Wade Davis

MLB Trade Deadline: Rockies don’t need to be sellers to trade Wade Davis

Say it with me: relievers are weird and unpredictable! The Colorado Rockies could decide to trade their closer right now. They could do it tomorrow or next week or closer to the trade deadline. They don’t need to wait to see the results for the rest of the month or decide that they’re sellers to make the move a good idea. As we know, the team spent money in free agency this past winter when few teams were spending.

Mariners 6, Rockies 4: M’s avoid sweep, win on the back of Ryon Healy

Mariners 6, Rockies 4: M’s avoid sweep, win on the back of Ryon Healy

Healy drove in five to help the Mariners beat the Rockies The Rockies lost to the Mariners 6-4 on Sunday afternoon. It was one of those can’t really be made losses. The Rockies missed out on sweeping a good team on the road, and it means they’ve won five of their last six games and aren’t on a six-game winning streak. Not only that, but the Rockies got six pretty good innings from a player who may end up just being a temporary starter, Antonio Senzatela, and saw some good bullpen work from Chris Rusin and Jake McGee. The Rockies lost and fell to 46-44, and I feel fine. Really, Ryon...
