Joined by Kevin Henry, co-editor of RoxPile, the discussion focuses on Trevor Story’s heartfelt goodbye and his next landing place, specifically what kind of club he’ll be targeting. Nolan Arenado did not impress in the NL Wild Card Game despite playing in front of a familiar crowd in Los Angeles. Finally, GM Bill Schmidt has a permanent title and first…

Colorado dropped the interim from his title on Saturday to name Bill Schmidt as the club’s fourth general manager, following in the footsteps of Bob Gebhard, Dan O’Dowd and Jeff Bridich. “After five months as our interim general manager, it became increasingly clear that Bill was the right person to lead this franchise forward,” said Colorado Rockies President and Chief...
