Rockies’ Greg Holland pulled in save situation | MLB.com

Brutal.

Holland, who left an 0-2 slider over the plate to Ozzie Albies for a single just before Adams’ homer, has given up four homers and 14 runs in 6 1/3 innings over his last eight appearances.

Don Baylor - Toughest and Gentlest of Giants

He was celebrated for once throwing a temper tantrum and tipping over the food table with the postgame spread. Why? A young Angels rookie had a bad game in the field, in a bad loss, and was surrounded by the media. Don wanted, needed to pull the media to him. He told me that’s what veterans, team leaders do. So he stagecrafted his way into an impromptu state-of-the-team scrum with reporters, pulling attention away from the kid.

Rockies offered four-year extension to Carlos Gonzalez last spring

The Rockies reportedly offered outfielder Carlos Gonzalez a four-year extension that was rejected during spring training, according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today Sports. While Nightengale does not specify exactly how much money Gonzalez turned down, he does go as far as to describe the offer as “lucrative.”

Gonzalez, 31, has really struggled offensively in 2017 with just a .642 OPS and .298 OBP. A free agent after the season, Gonzalez has spent nine of his ten seasons with the Rockies and touts a career 117 OPS+. The three-time Gold Glover hit 25 home runs and drove in 100 runs just a season ago.

Don Baylor, who won MVP with Angels and World Series with Twins, dies at 68

Don Baylor, the 1979 American League MVP, died Monday of cancer. He was 68.

“Don passed from this earth with the same fierce dignity with which he played the game and lived his life,” his wife, Rebecca, said in a statement.

Baylor played for the Orioles, Athletics, Angels, Yankees, Red Sox and Twins over a 19-year baseball career. He was an All-Star and the MVP winner with the Angels in 1979, when he led the majors in RBIs and runs.

He reached the World Series three straight times at the end of his career from 1986 to 1988 and won the title with the Twins in 1987.

Lugo’s arm, bat help Mets handle Rockies again

NEW YORK—The Mets understand the depth of the hole they dug themselves into with a first half fractured by injuries and poor play, so much so that general manager Sandy Alderson all but guaranteed the team would be sellers by month’s end, barring the improbable.

And yet the second-half version of the Mets has looked like anything but sellers after steamrolling through their first two second-half games, putting up Coors Field numbers on the Rockies in Queens again in a 9-3 win at Citi Field on Saturday.

Lugo has provided some stability at the back-end of the rotation, of which the Mets are in dire need. He’s not the sexiest name but he’s likely to get a chance to prove that he deserves a spot in the rotation going into next season.

Cody Bellinger doing it all; Adam Ottavino, well, freakish appearance.

LaTroy Hawkins says Tommy Kahnle “one of the worst teammates I’ve ever had in my life.”

Former major league reliever LaTroy Hawkins pitched for a lot of teams, two of which were the Twins and Rockies. As it happened, the Twins were in town to visit the Rockies. Hawkins, now a member of the Twins’ broadcast team, told a story on air about he and former teammate Tommy Kahnle got into a fight back in 2014 when the latter was a rookie. Hawkins’ partner, Dick Bremer, tried to create a way for him to sugarcoat what he said, but Hawkins didn’t bite, calling Kahnle “one of the worst teammates I’ve ever had in my life.”

Are the Rockies and Diamondbacks about to take over the NL West? | FOX Sports

As the Giants surely can attest, baseball – like life – changes every day.

Early on Sunday, a few hours before Miller’s start, I asked Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo his biggest concern.

He did not hesitate with his reply.

“The fear of injury,” Lovullo said. “The depth in an organization is always a concern. Our health is of utmost importance for us to maintain what we’re doing.”

The loss of Miller for an extended period would diminish the excitement over the early performance of the DBacks’ rotation, which ranks sixth in the NL in ERA. Left-hander Patrick Corbin, in particular, looks ready to fulfill the top-of-the-rotation potential he showed in 2013, before he underwent Tommy John surgery.
