Within striking distance of the National League West-leading Dodgers, the Rockies have a prime chance to gain ground with this weekend's series at Los Angeles. Colorado will be presented with a serious challenge tonight on MLB.TV, however, facing Clayton Kershaw in the second of three games at 10:10 ET. (více...)
Rockies aren't about to hit the panic button
(DNES 24. 6. 2017, 10:00:02, Official Colorado Rockies)
In his 11th season in the Majors, Rockies first baseman Mark Reynolds is over any hand-wringing because of a slump, especially if it's more like a mini-slump with more than three months to play. The Rockies have lost three straight, the latest a 6-1 setback at Dodger Stadium on Friday night. They haven't lost four in a row this season, and they face Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw on Saturday night. (více...)
Rockies look to take down Kershaw in LA

His four-seam fastball and its location are mostly to blame.
Clayton Kershaw has been synonymous with dominance since breaking into the league in 2008. There hasnâ€™t been a better pitcher by any measure since that time and every baseball fan knows it.
So it will likely come as a shock when I say it may be time to start worrying about Kershaw. I say this because it appears he has a significant issue in the home run department, as heâ€™s given up 17 home runs in just 12 starts this season. That sounds like a lot for even the average top-of-the-rotation starter; itâ€™s that much more for someone of Kershawâ€™s caliber, who is several levels above average. (více...)

Clayton Kershaw remains an excellent pitcher, of course, but he's already allowed a career-high 17 dingers. (více...)
