Lessons the Colorado Rockies can take from the Colorado Avalanche

After 21 years and a legendary run that matched the most combined regular season and playoff wins in NHL history with 72 in 102 games played, the Colorado Avalanche are the 2022 Stanley Cup Champions. As the champs were saluted in front of the hometown fans Wednesday night at Coors Field, there was a question […] Lessons the Colorado Rockies can take from the Colorado Avalanche - Rox Pile - Rox Pile - Colorado Rockies News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Friday Rockpile: The beauty and necessity of a team captain

Photo by Kyle Cooper/Colorado Rockies/ Colorado Rockies news and links for Friday, July 1, 2022 On Thursday, I got to witness something that I can’t imagine I will get to as a Rockies fan: a championship parade ending in a rally at Civic Center Park. It’s a glorious celebration with thousands of your fellow fans to relive the highlights and cheer for the players to honor the organization’s amazing work and dedication. It’s a special feeling.

Thursday Rockpile: Is a Daniel Bard extension worth it?

Photo by Matthew Stockman/ Colorado Rockies news and links for Thursday, June 30, 2022 If you told me several years ago that one of the Colorado Rockies' most valuable trade chips in 2022 would be a 37-year-old pitcher that had found new life with the team after a seven-year hiatus, I would have told you to shut your mouth and stop acting crazy. Yet, life is stranger than fiction, and that just happens to be the case in 2022. Daniel Bard has been top of the line this season and it’s only natural that Bill Schmidt’s phone will be ringing quite a bit over the next...

Dodgers 8, Rockies 4: Stanley Cup mojo can’t overcome Márquez’s cut thumb

Photo by Matthew Stockman/ Dodgers go ahead early to prevent sweep on Wednesday night The Stanley Cup wasn’t enough to help the Rockies complete a sweep on Wednesday night, but they still got a series win against the NL West first-place Dodgers. The game featured a fourth-inning departure for Germán Márquez, a 3-1 ratio of Dodger to Rockies homers, the Rockies only being outhit 11-10, and a good amount of rain. Los Angeles jumped out to a 4-0 lead after two innings and even held a 7-1 lead through five innings. It was too much for the Rockies to overcome. Rodgers,...

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports Can the Rockies pull off a sweep against L.A.? Today the Rockies will play the Dodgers for the sixth time this season and they will be looking for their fifth win with two series wins already guaranteed. The five wins equate to a .800 winning percentage with an .857 mark on the line. After this series is over, the Rockies will face the Dodgers 13 more times (seven in July and six in September). Can you even imagine if the Rockies can keep up this pace or even something close to it? First things first, the Rockies are hunting for a sweep...

Colorado Rockies podcast: What they should do at the trade deadline

The calendar turns to July on Friday and the Colorado Rockies will be below .500 … well below .500. While the Rockies have played well against the Dodgers and Padres in the first three months of the season, they have yet to play any games against the Dodgers in Los Angeles.

Colorado Rockies: Checking in on Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story

The two faces of the Colorado Rockies in recent years were Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story.

Wednesday Rockpile: The Rockies can’t handle fastballs

Photo by Matthew Stockman/ Colorado Rockies news and links for Wednesday, June 29, 2022 It’s no secret that the Rockies have been struggling with runners on base in some of their recent series. The men in purple went 10-for-55 with runners in scoring position in their rough road trip through Miami and Minnesota, and their penchant for starting rallies and not finishing them has been one of the more annoying parts of the ballclub’s 2022 iteration. So just what is going on? And is there something going on, or is it just recent bias that has fans a bit miffed? It’s...

They will look to continue that success today with a battle of the star southpaws.

Tuesday Rockpile: Colorado’s last six complete-game shutouts

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports Colorado Rockies news and links for Tuesday, June 28, 2022 There have been 34 complete-game shutouts in Colorado Rockies history. On Monday night, the club played their 4,608th game in franchise history. On average, a Rockies starter will go the distance and blank their opponent once every 136 games. As starter pitch counts continue to decrease, one can presume the feat has become even more rare. Monday night was the rarest of all, however. Chad Kuhl pulled it off against the highest payroll in baseball. He’s now fulfilled some single-game...
