The beginning of the baseball season has always inspired optimism, rejuvenation, and a ton of sappy cliches.
Everyone's in first place on Opening Day!
It's a marathon, not a sprint.
Wait 'til this year!
And so on.

Will Tulo be wearing different colors in 2015?
That was the likely reaction of Rockies fans everywhere to the report that the team would listen to trade offers during the offseason for its two best players. If that sounds contradictory or illogical, well, that's Rockies baseball.

If the Rockies' new GM wants some ideas, he should pay attention to what's happening in Wrigley Field.

During a preseason chat with the Denver Post, Monfort predicted the Rockies would win 90 games and contend for a playoff spot...

There's an old baseball term that's survived into this modern age of advanced statistical metrics and pocket-protected nerdlingers who are re-educating us all on how to better evaluate skills on the diamond: The five-tool player. The moniker refers to guys who can run, throw, field, hit for...

Great yard. What else you got?
As April dawns, the boys of summer begin their annual trek north from the cacti of Arizona and palm trees of Florida to their respective homes, keen to ply their dusty trade through a simmering July and, hopefully, into October’s chill, where the fortunate few will realize their childhood dreams of...
