    There's nothing better than being a Rockies fan in April and nothing worse than being a Rockies fan May-October.

    I thought the Rockies would be a little rockier than this.

    Strikes out a TON.

    I'm still mad about the Tulo trade. Monforts and mini O'dowd are the worst.

    Nolan/Cargo.. So good though.

    why? we got 2 potentially really good arms and $$$ to give to Arenado when the time comes.

    I don't think Nolan will sign long term . I believe Tulowitzki told him to get out of town . The Rockies have to show improvement by 2018 or Nolan is gone and you see McMahon at 3rd, Rodgers at short , Story at 2nd in 2019.

    I don't disagree with that. And I think that's why they HAD to trade Tulo.

    10% of the schedule is complete . Amazingly they have a winning record .

    The Reyes punishment is taking longer than I thought it would . I'm only going to guess the punishment has yet to be agreed upon .

    Trevor Story has now lost 3 Homers due to the new walls of Coors .

    http://www.purplerow.com/2015/12/31/10695916/mlb-trade-rumors-jose-reyes-colorado-rockies-2015

    Yankees were supposedly the team (or one of them), but they wanted the Rockies to pay too much of his salary in return. This is where their stupidity comes into play. They set the market by not getting the Jays top prospects for the top SS in the game. How did they possibly expect to get "top prospects" from the Yankees or others for an aging SS with a bigger contract than the guy they just traded?

    Even so, you can trade in August if all players clear waivers. There were rumors of the Rockies trying to move him to a contender that month. Jose's contract is/was absurd for a guy batting sub .300 with diminishing power, speed, and defense. Why move one of the best all around players in the game without getting their top pitching prospects in return? Just not the value I expected.

    It's fine man, we can agree to disagree, but I bet these prospects burn out like Pomeranz and Alex White.

    Even though this is a 95 loss team , there's a ton of stuff to discuss .
    Farm system has plenty of prospects to analyze .
    The draft is 6 weeks away . Who is the best choice ?
    Grand Junction is supposed to be an incredible experience on game day
    does Carlos or Charlie get traded ?
    David Dahl make it to Denver this year ?
    And many more topics that are available for discussion .

    I'll go ahead and disagree that this is a 95-loss team. I mean, that's a possible outcome, but this is a relatively talented team.

    Honestly, the weak link right now in the rotation is JDLR. I knew it was going to happen eventually, but it seems he's finally fallen off the cliff.

    My cousin is Rodgers. Really excited about how well he's started off this year in Ashville. Good kid who will only get better as his body continues to mature. It's pretty amazing to see what the offseason weight lifting program has done to his game. Said his body is in a much better place this year than last year with grand junction.

    Fair enough. Not really sure what to make of Weiss still...but hard to blame him for yesterday when you hand the ball to your closer with a 3-run lead.

    game should have been over when a ground ball was hit to Story in the 9th. instead of turning the double play, he bobbles it 3 times and only gets the runner out at second. multiple runs scored after that fuck up.

    Somehow a rapper by the name of Wacka Flaka got thrown out of Coors Field on Wednesday night .

    This may be something interesting to follow . Lord knows this 1-5 home stand isn't .

    14-14 & tied for first place . In 2015 after 28 games , they were 11-17 & 8 games out of 1st place .

    On May 6th 2015 the Rockies hit last place for the first time . They spent 134 out of the next 137 games in last place . For 3 days June 9 to June 11 they were in 4th place .

    A pair of 2-0 wins at CHC and SF. I can get used to this.

    If only McGee didn't blow the game yesterday..

    The only question in my mind is today the last time the Rockies are . 500 in 2016? DeGrom today . 10 games on the road against St Louis , Boston , and I want to say Pittsburgh ? The season could be over .

    home stand when they get back are 3 against San Francisco and 4 against Cincinnati .
