Twins 6, Rockies 0: A shutout in Minnesota

Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports The Rockies couldn’t find their offense or the ability to score with runners in scoring position today. The Rockies fell to the Minnesota Twins in game two of the series tonight. The Rockies were shut out, stranding men on base and not having the quality pitching they needed. The Twins struck early The Twins came out to play today, and unfortunately the Rockies just couldn’t compete. In the first inning, Byron Buxton tripled to send home Luis Arraez, who had doubled. That wasn’t all we’d see from Arraez either. In the second...

Colorado Rockies: Should they trade Daniel Bard to the Boston Red Sox?

MINNEAPOLIS – Colorado Rockies closer Daniel Bard is celebrating his 37th birthday on Saturday while the team is in Minneapolis and with the way he is pitching, he could be the club’s only All-Star here in a few weeks when the All-Star Game is played in Los Angeles next month. By the August 2 trade […] Colorado Rockies: Should they trade Daniel Bard to the Boston Red Sox? - Rox Pile - Rox Pile - Colorado Rockies News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Colorado Rockies game no. 72 thread: Antonio Senzatela vs Chris Archer

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports The Rockies look to take another win from Minnesota while on the road. It’s game two in Minnesota and the Colorado Rockies are looking to add another to the win column while on the road. The Rockies will call on Antonio Senzatela (3-3, 4.42 ERA) tonight. Senza’s last outing against San Diego on June 19 proved to be fruitful. He pitched six full inning only giving up one earned run, which resulted in the Rockies winning that game. If Senzatela can channel that same kind of quality pitching, the Rockies will have a shot at winning...

Saturday Rockpile: Reviewing the first-half for each Rockies’ MiLB affiliate

Set Number: X163621 TK1 Colorado Rockies news and links for Saturday, June 25, 2022 This week marks the end of the first half for the three lowest levels of the full-season minor league ranks, with the Triple-A season reaching its midpoint next week. The Triple-A halfway mark is unceremonious as the playoffs are determined through the final regular season standings. But for the rest of the clubs, winning the division in the first half will punch a ticket into the playoffs. This is the case for the Fresno Grizzlies, who clinched their division on Thursday to ensure their...

Defensive power plays Colorado’s defense has had its fair share of troubles this season, but they were out to prove something on Friday evening. It started early in the game when, in the bottom of the first inning, Max Kepler took his at-bat with one out and a runner...

Colorado Rockies: Injury updates on Kris Bryant, Tyler Kinley

We’ll see if that trend continues as they stop in Minnesota for a three-game set with the Twins. Germán Márquez (3-5, 6.16 ERA) will get the ball for Colorado. The start of Márquez’s season was not his best, and he struggled through most of April and May, though seems to be...

Friday Rockpile: Title IX and the slow integration of women in baseball

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports Colorado Rockies news and links for Friday, June 24, 2022 In lieu of writing another angry diatribe about the Rockies being swept by the Marlins, I decided to take a step back and acknowledge a huge milestone in history that affects everyone in the baseball world. Thursday marked the 50th anniversary of the passing of Title IX, the famous chunk of the Education Amendments of 1972, aka the Patsy T. Mink Equal Opportunity in Education Act, that was passed by Congress and signed into law by President Richard Nixon. The law reads “No...

Marlins 3, Rockies 2: Rodgers’ four hits, Freeland’s seven innings not enough

Photo by Eric Espada/ The Rockies have now lost five of their last six in Miami Despite a commanding seven innings by Rockies starter Kyle Freeland and a 4-for-5 showing by by shortstop Brendan Rodgers, the Marlins capped a three-game sweep on some well-placed, decisive, eighth-inning singles. The Rockies outhit Miami today 12-9. The Marlins recorded 12 total bases at the plate, while Colorado’s Rodgers recorded eight by himself. The curse of Marlins Park continued, however, and 4 2⁄3 innings of shutdown work by the Miami bullpen closed out a 3-2 final. Colorado...

The bad news: a Miami sweep is still on the table. The Marlins have outscored the Rockies 16-12 in the first two games of this three-game set in Miami.

The 2022 Rockies are a team built from trust

Photo by Ethan Mito/Clarkson Creative/ I talked to various Rockies about the clubhouse culture, leadership, and what it means to play together The Colorado Rockies of 2022 are not your father’s Rockies. Over the last few seasons, the departures of fan-favorite stars and formation of new ones has been a time of flux for many of the Coors Field faithful. This is a new team that is creating a new identity both on and off the field. But what does that mean? How does a franchise reinvent itself and form a new leadership core from within? And how do the players feel about...

Thursday Rockpile: The Rockies’ lineup is a logjam of their own making

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports Colorado Rockies news and links for Thursday, June 23rd, 2022 Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: the Colorado Rockies have a logjam in multiple places and it’s entirely of their own making. This has been a persisting theme dating back years with this organization — multiple players having nowhere to get consistent playing time because they’re being blocked by someone else. This leads to wasted options, wasted money, wasted time, and players missing out on opportunities at a time when they need them the most. Raimel Tapia...
