Saunders: Rockies don't upgrade rotation? Then another 90-loss season — Posted: 11/23/2014 12:01:00 AM MST Updated: 11/23/2014 12:10:00 AM MST The late, great Earl Weaver once said, "Momentum is the next day's starting pitcher." That goes a long way to explaining why the Rockies went 66-96 this past season. It also helps explain why they won just 21 road games, fewest in franchise history.

Hochman: Rams' delight: Groove is in Dee Hart — Posted: 11/23/2014 12:01:00 AM MST FORT COLLINS - Demetrius Demar "Dee" Hart, the diminutive dreadlocked dasher, devoured the defense all day, inducing a dictionary of D's. Really, the only "D" from Saturday is displayed in this column. Defensively, one could declare it a despicable demonstration by New Mexico, but coach Bob Davie couldn't have denied Dee with his old gold-domer Notre Dame defenders.

I recently actually went back and watched the entire VHS tape of that game and documented it all in one of my "Watching Old Avs Games" pieces on the blog.

CSU's Dee Hart dives into the end zone for 1 of 6 TDs — You read that correctly. Dee Hart, Colorado State's star running back, tallied a total of six touchdowns - five rushing, one receiving - in the Rams' 58-20 rout of New Mexico on Saturday. In the second quarter, at the Lobos' 2-yard-line, Hart took a handoff from Garrett Grayson and dove over a pile of players to land in the end zone and put the Rams up, 14-0.

It's hard to see Emmanuel Sanders do well in Denver — Eric Decker spent four years in Denver - two with Peyton Manning as his quarterback - and quickly became one of the team's most beloved players.
