Mets 12, Rockies 2: deGrom dominates, Rox bullpen melts down in ugly loss

The Colorado Rockies continued with the struggles that have bogged them down in recent weeks, watching their bullpen once again let things get out of hand on Monday night as they fell to the New York Mets by a final score of 12-2.

Bad timing to face Jacob deGrom

So much of the gloom over tonight’s game emerged early on from simple bad timing (later on it came from the bullpen—oh did it come from the bullpen).

Might Red Sox have interest in trading for DJ LeMahieu?

Could the Boston Red Sox have interest in trading for DJ LeMahieu if Dustin Pedroia continues to have injury issues? One reporter thinks so.MLB Network’s Jon Morosi said on Monday that he thinks the Red Sox could be a good trade match for the Colorado Rockies second baseman depending on Pedroia’s status.

The rationale behind it all made sense, but things haven’t worked out thus far.This lack of production hasn’t been limited to these three hurlers, though — it’s spreading...

Charlie Blackmon’s weird season so far

It’s been a strange first half of the season for the Colorado Rockies.

Striking out cancer, Bettis reclaiming title of Colorado Rockies Ace

Prior to the start of Spring Training for the 2017 season, Colorado Rockies starting Pitcher Chad Bettis was the Ace of the staff.  He had the tools and pedigree.  Then, cancer struck him, and he relinquished that title to Jon Gray.  This season, with the struggles of Gray, Bettis has laid his claim to the title of “Ace”.
