He’s well known throughout Rockies’ Twitter as @OakTreeStatus and now you get learn about the man behind all that passion as he shares his experiences pulling for the purple. Jon Gray’s deal with Texas isn’t the last one they’ve signed. Tons more transactions around MLB, plus a few names Colorado could bring in to fill that final spot in the…

Forget regular season records. Throw that out the window, especially since the Colorado Rockies have the sixth-worst winning percentage (.471) since becoming a joint member of Major League Baseball in 1993. Let’s level the playing field and give them a chance to be winners.

On Saturday, it was a solo home run in the second.
