Cron, RHP Antonio Senzatela, C Elias Díaz and 3B Ryan McMahon, not to mention the seven-year deal given to free agent LF Kris Bryant by General Manager Bill Schmidt.

Larry Walker, Todd Helton, Troy Tulowitzki, Carlos González, Nolan Arenado and Charlie Blackmon comprise the player side with each man having spent at least eight years in Denver. Only seven managers have ever donned the purple pinstripes, but the most notable are Don Baylor and Clint Hurdle, the only two with six or more seasons at the helm. With his sixth Opening Day with Colorado coming in 2022, it will be time to add Bud Black to that list of all-time greats in regards to length of tenure. The overlap between…

On Thursday, the Colorado Rockies announced a three-year deal with catcher Elias Díaz worth approximately $14.5 million. The 31-year-old had an incredibly productive season at the plate, slugging .464 thanks to 37 extra-base hits. His 18 home runs were the fourth-most in franchise history by a catcher. Díaz did most of his damage at the dish after mid-June, homering in four-consecutive contests from June 28-July 2, the longest home run streak by a Rockies catcher in a single season.  The Venezuelan-born backstop also impressed fans at Coors Field in 2021 thanks to three walk-off performances, most on the club with Charlie Blackmon. On the defensive side, Díaz did well with one of the best pitching rotations in club history. In…
