Are you looking for a bad last second (Colorado Rockies themed) gift for your friend, enemy or significant other? Well, I have some options for you.

How about we start with the classic ugly sweater. This “Men’s Colorado Rockies Holiday Ugly Sweater” from Sports Authority is truly terrible, maybe that’s why it’s 40% off.

Do you get cold? Do you like 90s wear? Do you like the Rockies?

That combination sounds horrific so I’m sorry that you have to deal with that. Anyways here is a “90’S VINTAGE DEADSTOCK COLORADO ROCKIES PRO PLAYER JEAN JACKET” from Boneyard Chicago.

If you’re going to throw away $600 bucks please give it to this college kid and DO NOT THROW IT AWAY on a “Colorado Rockies Tonal Leather Jacket by JH Design” from Shop.MLB.com. Fun fact about this jacket, one in two people in Wyoming own it, that’s six whole people!

This is about hockey, but I think it’s baseball relatable nonetheless. Particularly the line below is an issue MLB also has.

“The way the NHL does business—he uses the word “we” here—restricts it from growing, he says, and the league hasn’t fully embraced that things are changing around it. You hear musicians and rappers reference basketball and football players.” – P.K. Subban

Sweet Spot (ESPN) / David Schoenfield // Ten players who need to be traded

Schoenfield wrote about this twice this week, what is this? Well, trading Carlos Gonzalez of course. He comes in at ten on this list.

Denver Post / Patrick Saunders // Jeff Francis, ace of Rockies’ dream season, retires from baseball

The left-handed Canadian Jeff Francis pitched the Rockies through 2007 called it quits this week. Saunders recalls the career of one of the better pitchers in Rockies history.

Another former Rockie, 2013 batting title champion Michael Cuddyer hung them up this week. Here is his personal account of his career.

Purple Row / Drew Creasman // Colorado Rockies need new logo, uniforms

Yes, this, 1,000 times this.

I wrote about this a while back and the Rockies are in a really bad way with their current set up. I’m not saying they should go all Dbacks, but they need to revamp a logo that hasn’t changed in a quarter of a century.

I don’t agree with the rankings, but a good fun read nonetheless. Adam is great on Twitter for Rockies fans too, follow him here @PlayerTBNL.

Music for the weekend: It’s an absolute crime that I haven’t put in Sleater-Kinney’s 2015 album “No Cities to Love,” yet in this section. So let me rectify that. If you don’t know them, they are a popular punk band that took a ten-year hiatus but they are back and (arguably) better than ever.
