Scottsdale, AZ – Even outside of the excitement contained within Wednesday’s twenty-four hours of wall-to-wall sports coverage, it has been a rather good time to be a Colorado sports fans in the capital city.

Scottsdale – Colorado Rockies manager Bud Black confirmed on Thursday in a media session in the early days of spring training camp that veteran Ian Desmond, who spent a majority of last season at first base for the club, will be seen mostly in 2019 patrolling center field. “He’ll be primarily in the outfield… more as a center fielder,” Black…

In baseball, recording just ten hits during 19 innings of play is also a poor statistic to reflect upon. But Bud Black has tweaked the lineup in order to help the offense settle into a groove during the early innings…...
