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. Scrap the small market versus big market noise, Coors Field Conundrum, and any other factor that might make operating a much more difficult task for the Rockies than any other team in the sport. The template for whether Colorado can be victorious against all others begins right now and will be graded by how well they deal the impending free agency of their star shortstop. Put aside conversation of 94 wins, Nolan Arenado’s opt-out and the…

Following consecutive losing seasons with a core that has gone stagnant after postseasons in 2017-18, the Colorado Rockies are at a definite crossroads when it comes to their roster.

The aptly nicknamed Hot Stove League kicked off in San Diego at the Winter Meetings with Scott Boras inking consecutive record-breaking contracts for his aces Stephen Strasburg and Gerrit Cole. Since then, more trades and other signings have changed a few names on the backs of every team’s uniforms, but it’s the extended offseason that may make it hard to recollect which player is with what team for 2020. With the 60-game abbreviated season requiring teams to play strictly within their region, Colorado will play the National League West for 40 games and the American League West for 20 interleague games. The west will be won in the west and against nine other teams that have the same belief that…
