The Colorado Rockies won the first and only National League Jackie Robinson Rookie of the Year Award in 2002 thanks to a 16-8 season by 23-year-old Jason Jennings.  There were also two instances of runner-up seasons – Todd Helton in 1998 and Troy Tulowitzki in 2007 – but the franchise has otherwise been left out of the honor for the…...

Noah Yingling from RoxPile joins the podcast to discuss the best odds for the Rockies to win an end-of-year award, plus why Ryan McMahon may not get his recognition in the Gold Glove Award voting. The fans in Texas – along with the beat writers – are very interested in acquiring Trevor Story, but another American League team could also…

Steve Reed represented the Colorado Rockies through their first five seasons of existence and pitched in more games than any other for the franchise, spending half his 14-year career in purple. His 140 ERA+ is often overlooked, and remains a staggering figure during era pitched mostly before the advent of the humidor.   Steve Reed Award for Unsung Hero Elias Díaz…...

When the Colorado Rockies dropped off their minor league invites during the 2020-21 offseason at the Post Office, they received some quality RSVPs. C.J. Cron, a player who probably should have been picked up by a car service a few years ago before making if official this February, solidified the middle part of the lineup throughout the year and won…...

Each day seemingly brings a surprising statistic of excellence – typically when at home – or a…...

It’s what makes all the youth tournaments, minor league bus rides, all those days playing through soreness and time spent away from family worth the grind of being a professional baseball player. “When you look at a players…...
