Goodbye To Old-Ass Jason Giambi, Who Refused To Go Down A Villain

Jason Giambi is retiring. At age 44, the slugger announced yesterday that his gradual disappearance from the game—one that began all the way back in 2009, when Giambi remade himself into a grizzled pinch-hitter and nominal player-coach—has reached its terminus. His career probably should have ended long before… » 2/17/15 1:21pm 2/17/15 1:21pm

Adeiny Hechavarria Momentarily Saves Game With Great Diving Grab

The Rockies beat the Marlins 5-4 on a walk-off single in the 13th inning Saturday and the only reason it wasn't an inning earlier is because of this play. With two outs and men on the corners, Justin Morneau hit a flare out into no man's land between second base and left-center field. Adeiny Hechavarria turned his… » 8/24/14 11:35am 8/24/14 11:35am

Cubs Catcher Is Winning Pitcher, Scores Winning Run In 16-Inning Game

I do not envy the hardy fans who watched all 6:27 of the game between the 43-63 Rockies and the 44-61 Cubs, including 12 straight scoreless innings. But those who did stick it out saw something rare: Chicago catcher John Baker pitched a scoreless top of the 16th, and became the winning pitcher when he scored the… » 7/30/14 1:28pm 7/30/14 1:28pm

Troy Tulowitzki Went To A Yankees Game And Everyone's Freaking Out

Troy Tulowitzki will be in another uniform next year. That's not to impress you with my predictive abilities, or to rub it in for Rockies fans, or to make some kind of observation about small-market teams' inability to keep their homegrown stars. It's just a statement of fact. As in: the sun will come up tomorrow,… » 7/28/14 10:30am 7/28/14 10:30am

The Rockies Misspelled Troy Tulowitzki's Name On Jersey Giveaway Night

It's Free Troy Tulowizki Shirt Day at Coors Field, guys! Somehow, some way, the Colorado Rockies had themselves a Troy Tulowitzki Jersey Day and misspelled the man's goddamned name. The only thing they had to do was slap his name on a shirt and they fucked it up. Come on, Rockies. » 7/26/14 7:14pm 7/26/14 7:14pm

Cop Gets Pushy With Rockies Bro; Rockies Bro Becomes American Hero

The temptation is to say there are no winners here, what with the cop getting needlessly pushy and the bro trying to summon James Madison from his grave with his slurring bluster about injustice. But you know what? Fuck this. We're on Team Bro here. » 7/24/14 7:45pm 7/24/14 7:45pm

Replay Review Doesn't Prevent Umpires From Completely Blowing Call

In the seventh inning of last night's game between the Rockies and Cardinals, Matt Carpenter went to first after seemingly being hit by a Franklin Morales pitch. The Rockies challenged the play, and after a lengthy replay review, the original call was upheld despite it being pretty damn clear to everyone at home that… » 6/24/14 5:14pm 6/24/14 5:14pm

Corey Dickerson Boned Himself Out Of An Inside-The-Park Home Run

With his team down 6-4 in the bottom of the ninth inning of yesterday's game against the Brewers, Corey Dickerson stepped to the plate and ripped a pitch into the right-field wall. With the ball caroming sharply into no-man's land, it looked like Dickerson had himself a guaranteed triple and a possible homer. A bad… » 6/23/14 11:16am 6/23/14 11:16am

Brewers Score Three Runs On Wild Pitch

Here's something you don't see every day: a bases-clearing wild pitch. With the bases loaded for Aramis Ramirez in the top of the third, Rockies starter Christian Friedrich threw a wild pitch that Michael McKenry couldn't handle and one run scored. Then McKenry threw it past Friedrich as he tried to cover home, and… » 6/21/14 6:29pm 6/21/14 6:29pm

Man Holding Kid Casually Catches Troy Tulowitzki's Home Run Ball

Troy Tulowitzki's two-run homer in today's Rockies-Giants game created a solid Father's Day moment for one man in the stands. Catching a home run with one bare hand while carrying a kid was no big deal to this dude. » 6/15/14 6:05pm 6/15/14 6:05pm

You Can't Really Get Troy Tulowitzki Out Right Now

Troy Tulowitzki hit two more home runs last night, bringing his season total to nine, ballooning his slash line to .408/.512./.786, and raising his fWAR to a league-leading 3.1.

Typo Dramatically Alters Meaning Of Sign About Beer Sales

A reader spotted this sign at the Colorado Rockies' home opener. Under normal circumstances, this is the kind of sign that would make a beer-guzzling baseball fan hang his head in sadness. But thanks to a typo, this sign suddenly transformed into a one-way ticket to party town, where the beers only cost $12. » 4/10/14 5:37pm 4/10/14 5:37pm
