Thursday Rockpile: Notes on Spring Things


A hodgepodge of Rockies news, from Jhoulys Chacin's eagerness to pitch for Venezuela to a long coming reunion of 1998 Portland Rockies in Miami.

Sunday Rockpile: Weiss to be brief in talk to club


Walt Weiss promises to get real, Wilin Rosario promises to get better defensively and Todd Helton promises to address the issue of the elephant he's left in the room for the last week and a half.

We're at the stage of Spring where it's difficult to read between the lines and see where the team really sits.

Sunday Rockpile: Rox set to fix leaks this Spring


Sigh, another Rockies preview piece (actually several) and we still don't find out that an ace has magically appeared to front the team's rotation. It seems like 2013 may have a healthier dose of...

Thursday Rockpile: Helton reaction gets evaluated


How the Rockies fan and media community is responding to Todd Helton's DUI seems to be more about the player's performance on the field rather than the negligent act itself, but that's probably to...

The Rockies signed Miguel Batista to a minor league contract, and he may be as notable as it gets for the team on the free agent pitching front this winter.

Sunday Rockpile: 5th place finish hurts trade talk


The Rockies disaster season of 2012 has cast a pall over the team's players that makes them difficult to move for fair market value.

Thursday Rockpile: Last shot for Walker?


Recently published Hall of Fame ballots show the Rockies outfielder could be getting crowded out by the BBWAA's sanctimonious slog through clearing the players of the PED era.

Sunday Rockpile: Rockies don't know what they have


While it's easy for just about anybody outside the organization to point out the Rockies major flaw in the starting rotation in 2012, the team itself can't seem to act on this. Why? It seems...
