After years of searching, I finally found the greatest Rockies baseball hat of all time.

Best Sky Sox game ever

Despite the loss, it was the most fun I've had at a baseball game in quite a while. Check out the pictures and videos I took at the game.

Ozzie at the Chophouse on Saturday before the Rockies game

Loooong time lurker here. I hope this is appropriate as a FanShot; surely someone will tell me if it is not. I don't know how much overlap there is between readers here and SABR, but the Rocky Mountain Chapter is having a little fundraiser this Saturday at the Chophouse at lunch time. And the speaker is the Marlins Manager Ozzie Guillen. It's a $20 entry fee. Lunch is extra and optional. No need to be a SABR member. There's also a note in the above link concerning RM SABR's annual November banquet. Last year's speakers were John Thorn and Rob Neyer. This year it will be Maury Wills and Roland Hemond. Let me know if you have any questions.

Hey all, Steve and I went down to Lake Elsnoire and they faced off against the Nuts. Steve took excellent video of Parker and broke it down with our hitting expert, Steve Carter. Enjoy!

Why the Rockies management group sucks

Here is an excellent article from Denver Stiffs, our Nuggets blog affiliate. It compares the Nuggets ownership vs. the Rockies and provides some solid input as to why the Rox are so terrible.

Wil Nieves reinstated from DL, promptly DFA'd.

#Rockies reinstate catcher Wil Nieves from 15-day disabled list and designate him for assignment.— Colorado Rockies (@Rockies) August 1, 2012 Not sure what the corresponding move will be, if any at this point. There are now 39 players on the Rockies' 40-man roster.

Why no love for Matt McBride?

I know he is 27 now, which is old for a minor leaguer, but the guy plays hitter exceptionally well and offers positional versatility (C, 1B, 3B, RF). I don't know what kind of fielder he is, but he only has 3 errors on the season. He hits at night, he hits during the day. Hits righties and lefties, home and away, ahead in count and behind in count, runners on or bases empty, doesn't seem to matter. He just hits. He isn't going to get any younger. He needs to be given a chance.
