How to make up for the other six months of the year? Why not preview the top prospects and recap the greatest moments and players from the greatest marathon on the planet. Purple Prospects Week Depth pieces from varied sources decorate interesting collection, #21-33 The write-up on the 29th prospect Ryan Castellani, now with the Oakland Athletics, was on point: “Everything beyond that sterling (four no-hitting innings in his MLB debut) calls into…

After 2020 was upended by the COVID-19 pandemic and with the 2022 season in jeopardy of starting on time due to the lockout, the Colorado Rockies baseball brought back some normalcy to the Front Range in 2021 and provided a service in which should all be somewhat thankful. Sure, that service meant coupling the ups with the downs, winning some and losing a few more. But the collective fan experience came back to Coors Field this year and helped us forget reality for nine innings at a time.

When the lockout comes to end at some point in 2022 and Major League Baseball can have free agent signings and trades of typical offseasons past, the Colorado Rockies will need to not only improve their lineup in the power department, but will also need to add a notable name.  On Opening Day of the 2019 season, the Colorado Rockies...

This time last year, the Colorado Rockies had signed Connor Joe and C.J. Cron to minor league deals, as well as other contributors Chi Chi González, Taylor Motter and Zac Rosscup.

Our guest helps us name every single Opening Day starter in franchise history via Sporcle. Spoiler: we run out of time and miss three players.

Colorado could trade from depth in their outfield to improve their bullpen or bolster their farm system. And their shortstop situation would become trickier if the Houston Astros and New York Yankees combine to sign Carlos Correa and Trevor Story. At least it won’t be too bad if the San Diego Padres continue to take steps backwards. Kevin Henry from RoxPile elaborates on why players like Bonds and Clemens should be enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame. “Could the Colorado Rockies and Cleveland Guardians be trade partners?” by Kevin Henry “The Chicago Cubs ‘attempted’ to trade for San Diego Padres first baseman Eric Hosmer” by Noah Yingling DON’T FORGET TO SUBSCRIBE TO THE POD! iTunes link — Stitcher Link…

The unthinkable has happened: Jon Gray is no longer a member of the Colorado Rockies. Instead, he signs with the Texas Rangers to be a part of a squad that lost 102 games last season. Time to break down all the details of his contract, how the Rockies handled it and where they can go from here. “Jon Gray signs a four-year deal with the Texas Rangers, Rockies get nothing for their loss” by Patrick Lyons DON’T FORGET TO SUBSCRIBE TO THE POD! iTunes link — Stitcher Link — Pocket Casts Link — Spotify Link

GM Bill Schmidt does it again, locking up Elias Díaz to a three-year, $14.5 million contract that keeps the 31-year-old catcher in purple pinstripes through the 2024 season. Rumblings of Ryan McMahon at shortstop are intriguing, as are possibilities of Brendan Rodgers moving back to his natural position. One thing is for sure: there cannot be a platoon at this position until Ezequiel Tovar is ready to make his debut.

GM Meetings are providing some intrigue by way of free agent negotiations with Jon Gray, between both the Rockies and Detroit Tigers.
