Rockies ranked second best baserunning team in MLB


In this nice article about ranking baserunners, Dewan ranks the Rockies the second best MLB team at baserunning, with a +70 gain, only behind the Angels. Also, former Rockies player Willy Taveras ranked the third best baserunner since 2005 in the MLB.

Juan Morillo Headed to Japan " NPB Tracker


Hmmmm, interesting. Lets see if that promising fastball of his helps him out overseas, since his lack of control prevented him from holding an MLB job.

Madison Bumgarner called up


Not really directly related to the Rockies, but the Giants top pitching prospect is being called up due to an apparent Tim Lincecum injury, which sort of bodes well for us?

Olney in chat gives Rockies love


See, it's only Kruk on ESPN who is completely biased. Olney absolutely loves us: credit for Rox Girl for finding this.

Cook to DL, Herges called up


This means either Fogg, or...GULP, Eaton will start for Cook.

Matzek no lock to stay at Oregon


A great find by the user bakerm in the Matzek Fanpost thread, shows that while the Rockies and Matzek may be far apart in demands, it will almost definitely heat up at the deadline, and that the Rockies have a good shot at signing him. The article also shows that probability odds give the Rockies a great shot at getting Matzek, due to Gerrit Cole being the only 1st round high school draft prospect to turn down a major league offer since 2002.

Chacin to get first career start Tuesday


Shocking move, everything pointed to Fogg starting, but woohoo! Chacin will be limited to 70-75 pitches in his start and Fogg will likely see action.

Wilin Rosario might be done for year


The Rockies best catching prospect (in my opinion) will most likely miss the rest of the year in Modesto due to a wrist injury. It's a shame, he had been improving so much after such a big jump in the minors. Does this cause him to repeat Advanced A, or does he go to Double A next year because of his vast improvement?


Chris Balcom Miller

I'd like to know what you folks here think of his ceiling, whether he's been legit or not, and that stuff. a sixth round draft pick by Colorado, he's dominated the Rookie level Pioneer league, with...


Ubaldo Jimenez deserves some serious respect

There are some Rockies fans and many sports fans/analysts who believe that either 1) Ubaldo Jimenez is not an ace or 2) That he is extremely close to being one. Now let me tell you all the truth...


A question about Atkins

Yes, he's been downright awful this year, and is being overpaid for his performance I realize that, but if you look deeper into the stats, he should be doing way better. His BABIP is downright...


Is it an upgrade....or not?

It's been well known that despite the Rockies offense being around the middle of the pack this year, that the offense does not have a major hole. This does not mean, however, that they still cannot...

No Halladay for Rockies


GM Dan O'Dowd told that acquiring the Colorado native would be devastating financially and in terms of talent.

Baseball America considers Chacin and Rogers untouchables


John Manuel of Baseball America believes that Esmil Rogers and Jhoulys Chacin should be the Rockies untouchables, except in a Roy Halladay trade. I like what this guy is insinuating....

Speier to Colorado, Peralta to the Springs


Ryan Speier has been put off the disabled list and replaced Joel Peralta on the big league roster.

Fangraphs take a look at top AA pitchers, including Deduno and Rogers


Marc Hulet at Fangraphs explains the top pitching performers of Double AA this year, ranking them using FIP (fielding independent pitching) and K/9. Esmil Rogers leads FIP by a long shot, and is second in K/9, while Samuel Deduno ranks third in K/9. While Rockies top pitching prospect Jhoulys Chacin is not mentioned, Hulet describes the Rockies pitching depth as rich, with the potential of being ridiculous.
