Hey there, it's me Rox Girl. After being raised by coyotes on the Western Slope, I grew fond of baseballs, howling, tasty sheep and small rodents. Luckily, I've lost the last habit and no longer eat prairie dogs, but I still love baseball and howling.

Sunday Rockpile: Weiss hire already paying off

159

The scrutiny of new Rockies manager Walt Weiss by some in the media seems to be aimed more at Dan O'Dowd and Bill Geivett, but these indirect digs lose their effectiveness in the lack of critical thought driving the messaging.

Thursday Rockpile: Rockies make Weiss choice?

484

The Rockies hired Walt Weiss to replace Jim Tracy as a manager, but it could be awhile before we actually know if it was the right decision or not.

Sunday Rockpile: Anibal Sanchez? Nick Swisher?

128

Sports reporters love playing the free agent guessing game as much as the rest of us sometimes, but you at least have to give Nick Cafardo credit for coming up with a couple of doozies for Rockies fans to dream on.

Thursday Rockpile: Rockies done manager hunting

253

The Rockies apparently has seen enough of six candidates to figure that the right one is in their pool already, but will he have enough to change the fortunes of a miserable team?

Rockies manager search expands, more to come.

The Rockies managerial search expanded to three candidates that seemingly won't really have the best shot at ultimately landing the job, Jerry Manuel, Pete Mackanin and Matt Williams. More serious contender interviews are still to come.

Rockies like Giambi, but need to keep interviewing

553

The Rockies liked what they heard from Jason Giambi in his interview on Thursday, but they shouldn't stop the interview process yet if they want to win back cynical fans.

Jason Giambi as manager? It actually could work.

678

Jason Giambi will get an interview for the Rockies managerial post, but how seriously should we take his candidacy?

Sunday Rockpile: Rockies search for their Yes man

433

The Rockies managerial search seems too focused on internal candidates, which will likely hamper whoever they wind up picking given the current climate of distrust in the organization.

Thursday Rockpile: Hamilton a fit for Rockies?

445

Sunday Rockpile: Rox not ready to extend Fowler

294

While outfielder Dexter Fowler's keen on signing an extension, the Rockies are holding back and seem to be exploring their options as the off season commences. Trading him could prove difficult if it comes to that.

I've grown a bit of a peanut intolerance as I've grown older, making peanut butter a dilemma for me. Food allergies are weird.

Thursday Rockpile: Paying Respect to 2012's Losses

512

The 2012 Rockies season was a harrowing ride, and it's finally over, but along the way some people and things were lost to us and now it's time to reflect on those people and things.

Sunday Rockpile goes philosophical about the F.O.

204

Dexter Fowler might get traded, so too Michael Cuddyer, Jim Tracy might get fired, so who do you give credit to if the decisions turn out good, and who do you give blame to if they don't? The Rockies murky front office situation gives us a choice.
