In exactly one month, baseball returns from its winter slumber with a simple pop of the mitt on back fields all across Arizona and Florida.  Laughs, good-natured ribbing and loud barking from seasoned coaches will fill Salt River Fields when pitchers and catchers report to the Spring Training home of the Colorado Rockies on February 15. Not everyone will be…

It was one of the more disappointing seasons for the starting rotation during the Bud Black’s tenure as manager of the Colorado Rockies.  After running out eight different starters, including seven that made 17 or more starts, the 2022 rotation finished with a 5.23 ERA. It was only the second time Black’s rotation had an earned run average greater than…

Entering phase two of the offseason following the end of the lockout on March 10, it appeared that the Colorado Rockies might go into Opening Day with several positional battles.
