Rockies pitcher Jon Gray is struggling and needs to make a change

Baseball is a game of inches, so why not take three or four off the mane? Jon Gray’s struggles on the mound have been well documented this season. They may even have started with the 2017 Wild Card game. After Friday night’s particularly awful outing against the Cubs — the first time in Gray’s career that he has posted three consecutive losses — most writers and fans will focus on things like mechanics, and rightfully so because they’re key. But for topics like that, he’s got Rockies coaches Bud Black and Steve Foster. What I want to offer is more spiritual. Jon, it’s time...

Rockies news and links for April 23, 2018 German Marquez’s short start vs. Cubs is prime example of what’s hurting Rockies | Denver Post ($) The Rockies might have a winning record to start off the 2018 season, but things are not going quite as expected. The young starting pitching rotation is having a really hard time getting it together. Germân Márquez provides the most recent example. After hitting Kris Bryant in the head and allowing three runs in the first inning alone, he left the game after only three innings. It’s not a spot where the Rockies want to be: their bullpen is...

Cubs 9, Rockies 7: Colorado loses wild game at Coors Field

Rockies/Cubs final score from Sunday It was a wild Sunday afternoon at Coors field. The first inning had a bean ball and a couple ejections, there was some sign stealing shenanigans, an idiot on the field, a ghost man on first, and the final out coming by way of review. The Rockies ultimately lost 9-7, losing the series and dropping their season record to 12-11. Scary moment early In the first inning, Germán Márquez lost a fastball that went up, in, and hit Kris Bryant near the lid of his helmet. He was shaken up and had to leave the game, but it sounds like he’s okay. He got a...
