Celebrate Tony Wolters with ‘Don’t Dash on the Stache’ shirt

Be successful and look good doing it, just like Tony. Tony Wolters is doing everything well for the Colorado Rockies this season. He has always been a fan favorite, but his 2019 season so far has shown us what it looks like when he puts everything together. There’s his pitch framing and his improved offense.

Combine those last two things and you’ve got this new shirt from our friends at BreakingT. You can buy the...

Wednesday Rockpile: A rotation in need of a little help

Rockies news and links for Wednesday, June 19, 2019 Newman: To get back to the Postseason, Rockies need to trade for a proven starting pitcher. Here’s the arms they should target. | The Denver Post ($) If I was writing about this in March or April, you might call me crazy. It’s June, however, and Kyle Newman is not wrong with his assertion that the Rockies need rotation help if they plan on playing October baseball. The struggles of Kyle Freeland are well documented, while German Márquez and Jon Gray have been inconsistent at best. That trio was supposed to be our top three starting...

And the pitching didn’t give up a bunch of dramatic rallies, and so we have a nice easy win! The Colorado Rockies started this road trip off right on Tuesday.

Senzatela prevented that from happening, keeping...

Rockies sticking with Wade Davis as closer, but bullpen needs to get right

The Rockies' bullpen, a team strength until a massive meltdown during the just-completed, four-game scorefest with the Padres, needs a quick fix. But pulling right-hander Wade Davis from the closer role is not a solution.

AxA Ep. 6: Of Bullpens and Book Reviews

Affected by Altitude discusses the good (outfielders), the bad (bullpen), and the ugly (Rockies’ view of modern baseball) After a wild series against the Padres, the Rockies are left with more questions than answers. The offense is purple hot, but is it a flash in the pan or indicative of the true talent on this team? Can the bullpen be fixed? And what does the Rockies slow embrace of modern baseball, as reported in The MVP Machine, mean for the future of the franchise? In episode 6 of Affected by Altitude, Ben Kouchnerkavich, Adam Peterson, and Renee Dechert dig into where the Rockies...

Rockies top prospects reflect on their time in the majors

Brendan Rodgers and Peter Lambert discuss their experiences adjusting to the majors DENVER – Two and a half months into the 2019 season, the Rockies have already called upon their top two prospects — infielder Brendan Rodgers and starting pitcher Peter Lambert. Since then, both have had to adjust to being major leaguers. Lambert had to face the same potent Cubs lineup twice in a week before facing the Padres, his first NL West foe, on Sunday. Rodgers had to adjust to splitting playing time with a teammate while also learning how to play against some of the best players in the game....
