Colroado Rockies’ bullpen collapses as San Francisco Giants win to split series

The Giants pummeled relievers Bryan Shaw and Jake McGee, turning a nail-biter into a breathe-easy 9-5 victory. Colorado, rather than winning a four-game series in San Francisco for just the second time in franchise history, had to settle for a 2-2 split.

Giants 9, Rockies 5: Bullpen implosion dooms Colorado

The Rockies’ bullpen couldn’t keep the lead Sunday afternoon The Rockies had a 4-1 lead in the fifth, but a bullpen meltdown and unhelpful bats led to an eventual 9-5 loss. The team’s season record falls to 25-22, and they’re a half game behind the Diamondbacks for first place in the National...

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 6, Giants 1: Ian Desmond, Kyle Freeland carry Colorado to victory

Kyle Freeland is really good y’all The Rockies won yet another road game with their patented 2018 formula to pull within half a game of the NL West division lead. Combine an outstanding outing from your starting pitcher with timely home runs and then let the bullpen bring things home. After allowing a lead-off home run to the Giants’ Gorkys Hernández, Kyle Freeland spent the rest of his night ruining the Giants dreams. Ian Desmond decided to hit the pause button on his season-long slump again and drove in the first four Rockies runs. He hit a Earl Weaver special, the three run homer,...

Rockies starter Kyle Freeland is leveling up

The 25-year-old lefty looks even better in his second big league season. DENVER — Colorado Rockies lefty Kyle Freeland is taking his game to a new level in 2018 after an impressive debut last season. Freeland finished seventh in NL Rookie of the Year voting last season after posting a 4.10 ERA and 1.49 WHIP in 156 innings, walking 63 and striking out 107. That was a solid rookie season, especially for a pitcher that only had a dozen Triple-A starts under his belt prior to 2017. This season, however, Freeland has taken a step forward, with a 3.42 ERA and 1.18 WHIP in his first eight starts...

The Colorado Rockies have been dealing with a lot of woes. Whether it’s from the offense or the pitching it’s not a pretty sight to see.

PDP 133: Do really know this team is gonna hit?

It’s episode 133 of the PDP podcast! As the Rockies continue to search for solutions at the plate that don’t apparently consist of playing good younger players, we discuss what could possibly be done to turn “the team you know is gonna hit” into a team that, you know, actually hits. What are some potential solutions that lurk in Triple-A? Just how bad has this offense been from a historical perspective in franchise history? (Hint: REALLY bad) And while things continue floundering on the hitting side, what positives are there to look for from the pitching depth in the...

Friday Pebble Report: Hoffman dominant in Albuquerque

Colorado Rockies prospect news and notes from May 17, 2018. The Colorado Rockies got quality performances from many of their top minor league players on Thursday night, as nine of the top 30 PuRPs—in addition to Raimel Tapia—either homered or had a multi-hit game. Perhaps most notable among all their performances, however, was the outing Jeff Hoffman had on the mound for the Triple-A Albuquerque Isotopes. The 25-year-old righty tossed 62⁄3 shutout innings while walking only one and striking out 10. After suffering a shoulder injury in spring training, this is the type of outing...

FanPost Friday: Playing other sports

Recast the Rockies roster out of baseball The NHL and NBA are both in the thick of their playoffs, with just four teams remaining in each league. The NFL recently had their annual draft. The FIFA World Cup is a month away. People golf sometimes on TV. The point is there are other sports out there (believe it or not). And while there are a few Rockies players who were born to play baseball and nothing else, surely there are a few who would thrive elsewhere. What other sports would the best players on the Rockies be well-suited for and why? If they couldn’t play baseball what sport should...

Friday Rockpile: The NL West so far

Rockies news and links for May 18, 2018 Here’s how Rockies stack up at quarter mark | Rockies.com As it stands now, the NL West is kind of up for grabs. The Diamondbacks lead, but the margins between all the teams are relatively small. Arizona is slumping, and they are starting to suffer some significant injuries. They’ve lost seven of their last eight games, but they are heading home, and that could mean good things for them. The Dodgers lost Clayton Kershaw to injury, and although Justin Turner is back, he’s somewhat doubtful after a broken wrist. They’re not looking too hot right...
