  1. NL All-Star balloting update: Melky in, Braun out

    Jun 19, 2012, 6:40 PM EST

    Bochy's Angels?

    Just like in Monday’s AL balloting update, one spot in the National League projected All-Star lineup changed hands this week. Melky Cabrera moved ahead of Ryan Braun into third place in the outfield. Cabrera is deserving based on his performance this season, but one can’t help but notice that Giants fans have been awfully generous…

  2. The Rockies should trade Carlos Gonzalez?

    Jun 18, 2012, 1:31 PM EST

    Carlos Gonzalez

    That’s the thinking of New York Post columnist Joel Sherman. His belief: the Rockies might be better off having more young parts than having the duo of Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez tied up at $36 million-$40 million from 2015-17. Personally, I’m not sold. For one thing, Gonzalez is likely more valuable in Colorado than…

  3. Carlos Gonzalez scratched from lineup due to sore hamstring

    From Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post comes word that the Rockies have scratched outfielder Carlos Gonzalez from Sunday’s series finale against the Tigers due to right hamstring soreness. Dexter Fowler is playing center field and Eric Young Jr. is in left vs. Detroit’s Max Scherzer. CarGo should be ready to rock on Tuesday evening…

  4. Rockies explode for eight runs in 10th in beating Tigers

    Jun 15, 2012, 11:54 PM EST

    Jose Valverde

    Jose Valverde has been OK in save situations. Tie games, well, they don’t stay tied for very long. Valverde was charged with six runs — one earned — in two-thirds of an inning Friday as the Rockies broke out with eight runs in the 10th inning and beat the Tigers 12-4, snapping an eight-game losing…

  5. Carlos Gonzalez is on fire

    Jun 1, 2012, 8:23 AM EST

    Carlos Gonzalez

    On Wednesday, Carlos Gonzalez pulled a Reggie and hit homers in three straight at bats. OK, I guess they needed to be on three pitches to be a true Reggie, but he was pretty awesome all the same. He kept it up last night. Gonzalez hit a homer in his first at bat of the…

    There were only three freakin’ games last night. Three!  How is this fair? Bah! Bah, I say.  So, to make up for the lack of games to talk about, I go into some random Bob Dylan stuff below the scores. My feature. Do what I wanna do. Tigers 7, Red Sox 3: Max Scherzer continues…

  7. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    May 31, 2012, 5:45 AM EST

    Seattle Mariners v Texas Rangers

    Mariners 21, Rangers 8: Look, we can point to Justin Smoak driving in a half dozen runs, Jesus Montero nearly hitting for the cycle or any number of other things as being the cause of this bloodbath. But the fact is, Derek Holland shaved his mustache the other day, and there is likely a causal…

  8. Mat Latos gives up five runs, never works from stretch

    May 27, 2012, 4:02 PM EST

    Mat Latos

    Reds right-hander Mat Latos had an odd outing Sunday: he allowed five homers but no other hits or walks in 7 1/3 innings in defeating the Rockies. Carlos Gonzalez hit two of the five homers off Latos, with Troy Tulowitzki, Michael Cuddyer and Dexter Fowler also taking him deep. Fowler’s homer in the eighth knocked…

    Three walkoff homers and a no-hitter? Holy moley, that was a great night of baseball guys.

  10. Clayton Kershaw gives up three homers for first time

    May 2, 2012, 6:41 PM EST

    Clayton Kershaw

    It was bombs away off Clayton Kershaw on Wednesday, as the Rockies hit three homers off the Cy Young Award winner on their way to an 8-5 win. The red-hot Carlos Gonzalez hit the first and last of those homers, with Wilin Rosario supplying a shot in the middle. Kershaw had allowed just the two…

  11. Scott Hairston hits for the cycle against the Rockies

    Apr 27, 2012, 11:43 PM EST

    Scott Hairston AP

    They’re only in the seventh inning out in Colorado, but Scott Hairston has already hit for the cycle. Hairston singled in the third, hit a solo homer in the fourth, connected for an RBI triple in the fifth and then hit a two-run double in the sixth. It’s the first cycle of his career and…

  12. James McDonald allows one hit over seven innings, gets the no-decision, Pirates lose

    Apr 25, 2012, 4:00 PM EST

    Colorado Rockies v Pittsburgh Pirates - Game One

    Quite the dispiriting opening to today’s Pirates-Rockies doubleheader. At least if you’re the Pirates or one of their fans. Bucs’ starter James McDonald allowed only one hit in seven innings — the first hit coming in the seventh — and struck out eight and ended up allowing only one run.  Despite this, the Pirates lost…

  13. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 23, 2012, 5:45 AM EST

    Texas Rangers v Detroit Tigers

    Rangers 3, Tigers 2: If only there was some form of technology that could rectify bad calls. Some magical device that could allow officials to see what really happened on a baseball field when the umpires miss it. A bit of sorcery that could put right what was wrong and prevent a game from being…

  14. Carlos Gonzalez out of Rockies’ lineup with strep throat

    Apr 14, 2012, 6:22 PM EST

    carlos gonzalez getty

    From Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post comes word that Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez was scratched from Saturday’s game against Arizona after being diagnosed with strep throat. Tyler Colvin will start in left field and bat sixth. Gonzalez, who is batting .290/.313/.484 through his first 32 plate appearances this year, could need several days of…

  15. In which I still don’t get Jim Tracy

    Apr 7, 2012, 7:20 PM EST

    Jim Tracy

    Earlier today I complimented Kirk Gibson on how he’s worked the No. 2 spot in the order in these first two games, using Chris Young against the righty Tim Lincecum on Friday and Aaron Hill versus the lefty Madison Bumgarner today. Rockies manager Jim Tracy, on the other hand, isn’t really looking for his No.…

  16. Yu Darvish is pretty good, you guys

    Mar 31, 2012, 9:06 AM EST

    Yu Darvish Reuters

    Yu Darvish had his latest tuneup for his official major league debut last night against the Rockies and boy was he impressive. Darvish threw 97 pitches and allowed three runs over six innings while striking out 11, walking one, throwing one wild pitch and hitting a batter. And this wasn’t some B-lineup the Rockies were…

Up next: The Colorado Rockies. The Big Question: Will they make us all look like suckers again? Maybe it’s just me who…

  18. 2012 OPS projections: top 10 left fielders

    Feb 10, 2012, 11:30 PM EST

    A couple of names I’m sure no one expected to see make the top 10 for left field: .957 – Ryan Braun (Brewers) – 419 AB – .994 in 2011 .914 – Carlos Gonzalez (Rockies) – 585 AB – .889 in 2011 .910 – Matt Holliday (Cardinals) – 582 AB – .912 in 2011 .868…

  19. A’s acquire Seth Smith from Rockies for Josh Outman and Guillermo Moscoso

    Jan 16, 2012, 1:52 PM EST

    Smith_Seth

    Shortly after avoiding arbitration with Seth Smith by signing him to a one-year, $2.4 million deal the Rockies have traded the outfielder to the A’s for pitchers Josh Outman and Guillermo Moscoso. Smith had a very good year for the Rockies in 2011, but became expendable once they signed Michael Cuddyer to join Dexter Fowler…

  20. ‘Absolutely no truth’ to reported Rockies interest in Cody Ross

    Dec 28, 2011, 12:56 PM EST

    Cody Ross forearm

    Earlier this week Buster Olney of ESPN.com reported that the Rockies were “in contract talks” with free agent Cody Ross, which seemed odd because Colorado already has so much outfield depth that Seth Smith is on the trading block. Olney is one of the best national reporters in the business, but Patrick Saunders of the…

  21. Rockies “in contract talks” with outfielder Cody Ross

    Dec 26, 2011, 10:15 AM EST

    Cody Ross

    Colorado seemingly had all the outfield depth it needs and then some after signing Michael Cuddyer, but apparently they’re not done pursuing right-handed hitting outfielders. Buster Olney of ESPN.com reports that the Rockies are “in contract talks” with Cody Ross, whose market has proven lacking compared to his desire for a three-year contract. Ross seems…

  22. UPDATE: Blue Jays, Diamondbacks pursue Gio Gonzalez

    Dec 7, 2011, 6:09 PM EST

    Gio Gonzalez

    6:10 p.m. EDT: Susan Slusser is back with a report that the Blue Jays are trying to acquire Gio Gonzalez. Add them to the list that includes the Diamondbacks, Nationals, Reds and maybe still the Tigers and Yankees. 12:25 p.m. EDT: CBS Sports’ Danny Knobler reports that the Tigers weren’t prepared to pay the price for Gonzalez,…

  23. Diamondbacks pursue Oakland’s Gio Gonzalez, Trevor Cahill

    Dec 7, 2011, 1:55 PM EST

    Trevor Cahill

    Trading Carlos Gonzalez and Brett Anderson to Oakland for Dan Haren after the 2007 season proved to be quite a setback for Arizona, but now it looks like the Diamondbacks are at it again, as they’re making a run at acquiring either Gio Gonzalez or Trevor Cahill from the A’s. A’s GM Billy Beane will want the…

  24. Carlos Gonzalez expected to finalize $80 million contract today

    Jan 10, 2011, 11:44 AM EST

    Carlos Gonzalez rockies

    Carlos Gonzalez and the Rockies agreed to a seven-year, $80 million contract extension last week and the two sides are expected to finalize the deal today after Gonzalez undergoes a physical exam in Colorado. Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that Gonzalez flew in from Venezuela yesterday and will visit a doctor today, with…

  25. Carlos Gonzalez close to $80 million extension with Rockies

    Jan 3, 2011, 3:13 PM EST

    Carlos Gonzalez rockies

    Over the weekend Venezuelan newspaper El Nacional reported that Carlos Gonzalez was close to signing a long-term contract extension with the Rockies worth as much as $80 million. Initially the Colorado-based media was pretty quiet about the possibility, but Troy Renck of the Denver Post just tweeted that he “would be surprised if deal doesn’t…
