Despite traveling around the country with his own late-night gig as a professional athlete, Kyle Freeland plans to be rather active when it comes to Stanley Cup Final. “I’m still kind of debating on maybe taking a quick trip to Tampa for Game 3 on our off day when we’re in Miami,” the Colorado Rockies Opening Day starter said. “We’ll see if we can do it.” The hometown hero who was able to take in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals when the Rockies-Marlins game was rained out at Coors Field has ambitions even more far ranging that just witnessing one game in person. “Hopefully, (the parade) lines up to where we’re here and we can go out and…

Entering the 2022 season, it became apparent that the rotation for the Colorado Rockies were the leaders of the clubhouse. Even with the signing of Kris Bryant, which occurred after the 40-man roster had already reported to Scottsdale for Spring Training, the roster turnover in recent years had barely impacted Colorado’s stable of starting pitchers. Since 2017, the trio of Kyle Freeland, Germán Márquez and Antonio Senzatela have helped bolster the best rotation in the club’s 30-year history.  Each man has made over 100 starts with Márquez (143, 5th-most), Freeland (128, tied for 16th) and Senzatela (105, tied for 52nd) comfortably in the top 75 of starters in wins-above-replacement, according to FanGraphs. Their batterymates, on the other hand, have been…
