Get excited, I guess.

Who is buying? Who is selling? Who is on the block? And is next week’s trade deadline really a deadline?

Lots of shutouts and a handful of two-homer games. And one game that looked Xeroxed from another.

Madison Bumgarner’s third career home run was a big one.

From Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald comes the Marlins’ lineup plan for Opening Day … With Rafael Furcal headed to the disabled list, Christian Yelich will lead off. [Manager Mike Redmond] said that means Adeiny Hechavarria could bat second, followed by Giancarlo Stanton and Jeff Baker, who will be the Opening Day second baseman against Colorado lefty Jorge De La Rosa. Placido Polanco…

The Rockies may have the most interesting and unintentionally hilarious roster going into Opening Day. They’ll carry 14 pitchers, including two that are injured (Jhoulys Chacin and Boone Logan, who don’t count against the 25-man limit), as well as two catchers, only five infielders, and six (six!) outfielders. The rotation will include Jorge De La…

As speculated last week by Troy Renck of the Denver Post and then confirmed Wednesday, left-hander Jorge De La Rosa will start for the Rockies on Opening Day, March 31, against the Marlins. It’s the beginning of a four-game series at Marlins Park. Jhoulys Chacin would have been given the honor, but he suffered a…

Jorge De La Rosa will be the Rockies’ Opening Day starter, Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports. The Rockies haven’t made an official announcement yet. It doesn’t come as much as a surprise as his only real competition for the honor was Jhoulys Chacin, but Chacin is dealing with a shoulder strain and may…

Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2014 season. Next up: The Colorado Rockies. The Big Question: Can the Rockies get back over the .500 mark? Rookie manager Walt Weiss led…

So, uh, this is some pretty disturbing news for the Rockies … RHP Jhoulys Chacin will undergo a MRI tomorrow because of right shoulder inflammation. He will be shut down until further notice. — Colorado Rockies (@Rockies) February 23, 2014 Our own Matthew Pouliot estimates that Chacin is the third-most important player on Colorado’s roster,…

4:32 p.m. EST update: FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal is reporting that the Rockies are acquiring Anderson from the A’s in return for left-hander Drew Pomeranz and right-hander Chris Jensen. Anderson’s addition will likely leave Juan Nicasio and Jordan Lyles battling for one spot in Colorado’s rotation. The A’s still have six starters without him, a total…

Coming into this season it seemed awfully unlikely that the Rockies would want Jorge De La Rosa around next year at the price of $11 million, but he was excellent in his first full season back from Tommy John elbow surgery and today Colorado exercised its option to keep him. De La Rosa was limited…

Red Sox 2, Rays 0: Welcome back Clay Buchholz. It’s like you never left. Or at least the early-season version of you never left. Five shutout innings with six strikeouts before making way for a bullpen that was just as stingy. The Red Sox lead in the East is 8.5 games. Padres 8, Phillies 2:…

Rockies lefty starter Jorge De La Rosa is worthy of Cy Young consideration, argues Tracy Ringolsby in his latest column on MLB.com. My initial reaction to the article was that he was intentionally exaggerating to make a point, but he has covered the Rockies for a while, so maybe he legitimately believes this. Ringolsby writes:…

Red Sox 20, Tigers 4: Well, that was something. Eight homers in all for the Red Sox. Two from David Ortiz, who picked up his 2,000th career hit as well. Injury added to insult: Jose Iglesias left the game with shin splints. Cardinals 5, Reds 4: A sixteen inning affair in which Matt Adams homered…

After being limited to just 13 starts between 2011-2012 due to Tommy John surgery, Jorge De La Rosa has bounced back quite nicely this season with a 3.21 ERA and 86/44 K/BB ratio in 126 1/3 innings across 22 starts. And the Rockies intend to keep him in the fold for next season. According to…

Rays 5, Red Sox 1: David Price tossed a one-run, five hit complete game, with a solo homer by Mike Napoli the only real blemish. He needed a mere 97 pitches. That’s what happens when you throw 72 strikes. The Sox and Rays are once again tied in the loss column. Dodgers 8, Blue Jays…
