World Baseball Classic delivered the dream matchup we all wanted: Team USA against Samurai Japan. Beyond that, we wanted Shohei Ohtani to pitch against his teammate on the Los Angeles Angels, Mike Trout. Game on the line, ninth inning and with two outs, the All-Stars and legends faced off. Somewhere in Arizona, the Colorado Rockies faced off against the San Diego Padres as Peter Lambert, Jaden Hill and Jake Bird did their best in the loss.

The DNVR Rockies Podcast welcomes Kevin Henry from FanSided to provide player previews for rookie Ezequiel Tovar and the 2023 Rockies bullpen, featuring Daniel Bard, Brad Hand, Brent Suter, Dinelson Lamet, Pierce Johnson and Justin Lawrence.
