Colorado Rockies Third Baseman Chris Nelson: “There’s No Way We’re Going to Repeat” Last Year

Wednesday, April 10th, 2013

The Colorado Rockies entered Tuesday night's game at San Francisco tied atop the NL West. Yes, it's early in the season, but most folks expected the Rockies to be the doormat of the National League again. Instead, they've had good pitching and are showing what their lineup can do when ...

Rockies Outfielder Carlos Gonzalez: If We Stay Healthy, A Lot of Things are Going to be Different This Year

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

The Colorado Rockies were abysmal last year, dropping 98 games and doing so while folks around the country wondered what in the world they were attempting with a four-man rotation. Injuries certainly didn't help their cause, and left fielder Carlos Gonzalez says maintaining a healthy roster is the key for ...

Colorado Rockies’ Todd Helton: DUI is “Part of My Story”

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

Todd Helton will turn 40 this season and his play has declined due to age and injuries, but he's still an effective player. Maybe it's his because he has a good head on his shoulders. Helton made a big mistake earlier this month when he was arrested for DUI, but ...

Colorado’s Jamie Moyer Becomes the Oldest Pitcher Ever to Win a Major League Baseball Game

Thursday, April 19th, 2012

Jamie Moyer's story began as somewhat of a novelty. He was a 49-year-old pitcher coming off of Tommy John surgery who was invited to Colorado Rockies spring training and that in itself seemed like the feat. Then the story grew as it appeared he would make the club and he ...

Jamie Moyer: “I have a good chance just like anybody else in this camp has a really good chance of making this team.”

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

As we noted here at SRI back in July, Jamie Moyer has quite a bit of courage to give it one more try at making an MLB roster. The left hander turned 49 in November and didn't pitch last season because he had Tommy John surgery on his throwing elbow. Moyer ...

Wisconsin QB Russell Wilson Entrenches Himself in the Heisman Race By Dominating Nebraska

Tuesday, October 4th, 2011

It seemed like an easy bet when Russell Wilson committed to play his senior year at Wisconsin that he would be in the discussion for individual awards and have the Badgers in the thick of things for a Big 10 title, and perhaps even in the national championship discussion. Through ...

Jim Tracy on 2011 Colorado Rockies “We know how to be good. I’ve challenged this team to be great.”

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

The Colorado Rockies made headlines this off-season by opting to not add to their roster, but instead build around it with the seven-year extension they gave to franchise shortstop, Troy Tulowitzki. The mega-extension netted the Rocky Mountain star a cool $134 million to remain with the team through 2020. Tulowitzki ...

Troy Tulowitzki Is Officially the Face of the Colorado Rockies for Another Decade

Monday, December 6th, 2010

In the day and age where LeBron James packed up and left his hometown to build his Big Three elsewhere, Troy Tulowitzki is staying put in Colorado. And in a day in age where right down the street, Carmelo Anthony is trying to ride out a final season with the ...

Rockies Ride Carlos Gonzalez During Playoff Push

Tuesday, August 31st, 2010

It was less than two years ago that fans of the Colorado Rockies were debating whether or not trading outfielder Matt Holliday was a good idea. Now, the key prospect the Rockies picked up in that trade will be the reason they make the playoffs if they can cap off ...

Ubaldo Jimenez Is the Early Favorite for NL Cy Young

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

I have a confession to make.  At the beginning of the year, I really didn’t have much of an idea of who Ubaldo Jimenez was and I certainly didn't consider him one of the best pitchers in Major League Baseball.  After all, last year Jimenez was just 15-12 with a 3.47 ...
