Friday Rockpile: Rockies have the depth if they know where to look

Rockies news and links for May 25, 2018 Inbox: Will Rockies recall prospect for boost? | Rockies.com The question on many Rockies fans’ minds is whether or not the offense can stand a chance. Yes, the team is currently first in the division (yay!), but the team’s hitting has been abysmal. Of the Rockies top three hitters, DJ LeMahieu is out with an injury, and Charlie Blackmon and Nolan Arenado are experiencing some slumps. Thomas Harding at MLB.com argues that we can potentially find someone to fill that void in the minor leagues. Brendan Rodgers comes to mind, but Harding argues that...

Rockies news and links for May 22, 2018 Are the Rockies losing a stars race in the NL West while Nolan Arenado is marginalized? | The Athletic ($)Despite having the distinction of worst wRC+ in all of baseball, the Colorado Rockies are firmly in position to attain first place in the National League West (as of this Monday night writing). This is partially thanks to the Rox having one of the best pitching staffs in the game, and partially thanks to the play of the rest of the teams in the division. The Los Angeles Dodgers sit at a record of 20-26 as of Monday, which ranks fourth in the NL...

Colorado Rockies: A look at Nolan Arenado’s month of May

As you probably know, the Colorado Rockies offense has struggled for most of the 2018 but the Rockies have one guy who has been hot: Nolan Arenado. We are three weeks into May and one week away from Memorial Day so we have a pretty good idea on what the strengths and weakness are for […] Colorado Rockies: A look at Nolan Arenado’s month of May - Rox Pile - Rox Pile - A Colorado Rockies Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Monday Rockpile: Rockies and Giants split series

Rockies news and links for May 21, 2018 Bullpen can’t back Rockies offense vs. Giants | Rockies.com The Rockies were holding their own against the Giants, with a three-run lead into the fifth inning. Anderson gave up a couple more runs, but then Nolan Arenado knocked a run in himself, tying it up at 5-5. Trevor Story and Arenado each had three hits, and rookie Noel Cuevas impressed us and showed that he deserved his major league spot. However, the bullpen couldn’t close. Bryan Shaw gave up a two-run triple, and Jake McGee allowed two home runs. Yes, the pitching was a problem, but the...

Saturday Rockpile: The Clubhouse That Chemistry Built

Rockies news and links for May 19, 2018 Colorado Rockies: Are they picking chemistry over offense? | Rox PileIt has become difficult to argue against the notion that the Colorado Rockies are valuing clubhouse chemistry over offensive production. As Spring Training began, third baseman Nolan Arenado and other members of the Rockies’ roster were very vocal about bringing outfielder Carlos Gonzalez back to the team after a disappointing 2017 campaign. Shortly after Arenado stated that a CarGo reunion would be “the greatest thing ever,” the veteran was re-signed to a one-year, $8 million...

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,...

Trevor Story powered the offense as Kyle Freeland blanked the Brewers in a Rockies win The Colorado Rockies snapped a three-game losing streak with a 4-0 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday night at Coors Field. Rockies pitching, led by starter Kyle Freeland, limited the Brewers to just five hits, four of which were singles, in the contest after allowing 11 runs the previous night. The Rockies offense was led by Trevor Story, who hit a pair of home runs, with Nolan Arenado and Chris Iannetta also contributing multi-hit games. Never Ending Story Rockies shortstop Trevor Story...

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.

Thursday Rockpile: Livin’ La Vida CarGo

Rockies news and links for May 10, 2018 Carlos González: The heart of the Rockies | La Vida BaseballIt took until March when Spring Training games were already underway for Carlos González to re-sign with the Colorado Rockies. The 2017-2018 free agent class was an odd one, to say the least, and CarGo was certainly not alone among the players forced to lower their expectations for length and financial compensation in their new contracts. For his part, teammate Nolan Arenado made no secret of his belief that González was an integral part of the Rockies. Before CarGo signed his one-year, $8...
