Up the Frying Pan in winter

Keeler: Avalanche fans made Ball Arena feel like Ball Arena again. Best home playoff ice in the NHL.

Avs fans were thrilled to see Ceegan Callahan again. Until he turned around.

“A couple people just kept staring,” Callahan said between food runs at the Brooklyn’s on Auraria Parkway on Monday night. “They were like, ‘What the (expletive)?’”

Callahan turned up for work at Brooklyn’s Monday in one of those sweet Avs alternate sweaters with the letters “C-O-L-O-R-A-D-O” running diagonally down the front.

It was the letters on the back that got the funny looks.


Rockies’ Scott Oberg rejoins team, but he’s a long way from pitching

The Rockies sure could use former closer Scott Oberg in their struggling bullpen.

That won’t happen any time soon, and it may never happen, given the seriousness of his ailment — the reoccurring blood clots in his right arm.

But Oberg is keeping the faith. And he’s been hanging out with his teammates and coaching them up. That’s a good thing, because Oberg has been one of the club’s most popular and influential players.

Rockies’ bullpen is fixable, Bud Black says, but he knows there are big problems

The numbers tell you that the Rockies’ bullpen is in a state of disrepair and in need of major reconstruction. Think of the “Mile High Shift,” part of the $1.2 billion Central 70 project in Denver, and you get the idea.

To wit:

* Heading in Monday night’s game at San Diego, Rockies relievers had a combined 5.84 ERA, the highest in the National League.

* Opposing teams were batting .282 against Colorado’s bullpen, also the highest in the league.
