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 transactions are notable. Patrick and Kevin speculate about what the next steps could be for the Rockies’ roster in 2022. Story’s departure unlike any other by Patrick Lyons Recent Story rumors by Kevin Henry

The defensive concerns for the 2021 Colorado Rockies were hardly that. A breakdown of how each position fared across MLB as well as analysis of Ryan McMahon and Nolan Arenado. This week marks the anniversary of the 2007 Rockies sweeping the Philadelphia Phillies in the NLDS. Relive the moments of the first postseason series won by the franchise. Dodgers and Cardinals ended up being a classic with a walk-off homer nearly coming off the bat of Albert Pujols. Max Scherzer and Adam Wainwright entertained and both managers pushed the buttons darn well.

Repeatedly gesturing with a right-hand patting against his heart and pointing outward to all those in attendance, Trevor Story said goodbye on Wednesday in a moment unlike any witnessed in Colorado Rockies franchise history. It wasn’t made unique by the two-hour rain delay that postponed the final game of the season, nor the stadium lights shutting off momentarily in the...

After debuting out of relative prospect anonymity to hit two home runs to open the 2016 season, to becoming the youngest shortstop to ever to hit 100 in their career, to becoming the face of the franchise in 2021, Trevor Story’s reign with the Colorado Rockies may be coming to an end. Story will become a free agent this offseason...

Since May 21, the Colorado Rockies are 55-51. Because of the screwed up economics of baseball, trying to lose is a viable strategy for at least third of the teams in MLB so it makes perfect sense that some would see this not as success but rather as a failure of another kind. After all, they aren’t making the postseason...

To paraphrase the great American singer-songwriter and New York Mets superfan Billy Joel: Darling, I don’t know why the Rockies go to extremes. In their 29th season of play, never before have the Colorado Rockies experienced such vacillating results in so many ways. Each day seemingly brings a surprising statistic of excellence – typically when at home – or a...

Happy Anniversary, Rockies fans. Sort of.  Excluding the mammoth trade of Troy Tulowitzki in 2015, a deal that saved the franchise $50 million in the process, the last deadline deal Colorado made in a losing season was on this date in 2012.  At 23 games under .500, 16.5 games behind the newly-implemented second Wild Card and three years removed from...

It may have been only 23 years between All-Star Games, but it sure as heck felt like a century since all eyes were firmly focused on Denver for its baseball. In 1998, it was the Blake Street Bombers – OF Larry Walker, 3B Vinny Castilla and OF Dante Bichette – representing the Colorado Rockies in the Midsummer Classic, leading the...

Bang. Zoom. Straight to the moon! With 309 baseballs planted in various sections and tiers of Coors Field, slugged over a combined 25 miles in distance, New York Mets’ Pete Alonso came out on top in the single-elimination tournament. In doing so, he becomes only the third player to win consecutive Derbys, joining Ken Griffey Jr. (1998-99) and Yoenis Céspedes...
