The hype is more than just hope with the arrival of Colorado Rockies’ top infield prospect Ezequiel Tovar. Batting eighth and playing shortstop on Friday against the San Diego Padres as one of fives rookies in the starting lineup, Tovar represents the start of something promising for an organization heading into it’s fourth consecutive offseason without September relevance. At least…

The time has finally arrived. The Colorado Rockies are calling up their top infield prospect, Ezequiel Tovar. It’s Tovar Time. Daniel Alvarez of El Extra Base first reported the news of Colorado promoting Tovar following his 2-for-4 performance with Triple-A Albuquerque on Wednesday afternoon. The next generation of Rockies have been arriving all throughout the 2022 season.  Michael Toglia, Elehuris…

New day, new contract for another member of the Colorado Rockies. Ryan McMahon gets $70 million over the next six years to stay in Denver. But there’s a catch….. How does this signing impact the future third basemen waiting in the minor leagues? And where does this offseason’s spending rank among the greatest in franchise history? “Spring Training Notebook: Rolison…

As unbelievable as it may sound, the franchise now known as the Cleveland Guardians made a trade on April 1, 1983 that continues to impact their on-field roster to this day. Nearly 40 years ago, a trade tree began that included a series of players such as six-time All-Star Kenny Lofton, two-time Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber and a…...

Now that Gil Hodges has been selected by the Golden Days Era Committee to be enshrined in National Baseball Hall of Fame, every player who has received at least 50% of the vote in a year has made it to Cooperstown.

Noah Yingling from RoxPile and Call To The Pen shares his thoughts on which infielders deserve acknowledgement in a Colorado Rockies Hall of Fame. Todd Helton, Troy Tulowitzki and Vinny Castilla seem like obvious guarantees, but who else would join them? MLB and the Players’ Association met on Thursday. Nothing was worked out, but some promising developments transpired. And the…

Context is king.  This has very much flown out the window in the last few years as sound bites have joined forces with a 280 character-limit causing society to lose all ability to decipher what anything means in the greater sense.  As such, it feels like a good time to attempt to uncover it all for Brendan Rodgers and put…...

The Colorado Rockies won the first and only National League Jackie Robinson Rookie of the Year Award in 2002 thanks to a 16-8 season by 23-year-old Jason Jennings.  There were also two instances of runner-up seasons – Todd Helton in 1998 and Troy Tulowitzki in 2007 – but the franchise has otherwise been left out of the honor for the…...

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…...

Pull the plug. The 2021 Home Run Derby at Coors Field will not be using a humidor to store baseballs. And that might right a wrong as far as it concerns a certain Colorado Rockies’ slugger. When Trevor Story went down to one knee to swat the first of three home runs on September 5, 2018, it was recognized at…...

Nolan Arenado is good at baseball. There. It’s been said. Following his well-earned eight-year, $260M contract extension in the offseason, the five-time All-Star picked up where he left off to begin the 2019 season. Arenado aided Colorado’s 5-0 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates and starter Chris Archer with two singles that begin a streak of seven consecutive multi-hit games, the fourth…
