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 Sunday 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

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

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. Those cartoonish numbers speak for themselves, and are bound to regress, but Tulo is doing things he's never done before in his career, and… » 5/06/14 12:59pm 5/06/14 12:59pm

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
