Wednesday Rockpile: Who can the Rockies count on for consistency in 2021?

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports Colorado Rockies news and links for Wednesday, October 21, 2020 The last few seasons of Colorado Rockies baseball have included a fairly consistent, solid core of young ball players led by Nolan Arenado, Trevor Story, and German Márquez. The supporting cast, however, has been incredibly volatile, as Bryan Kilpatrick of Mile High Sports points out in his breakdown of three positions where the Rockies can expect (or maybe hope) for more consistency. He specifically details Ryan McMahon, David Dahl, and Raimel Tapia. Kilpatrick hits the nail on the head...

Monday Rockpile: The potential consequences and rewards of this offseason

Photo by Andy Cross/MediaNews Group/The Denver Post via Colorado Rockies news and links for Monday, October 19, 2020 There are a lot of unknowns as we near the beginning of the 2020-21 offseason. How much will the short and fan-less season affect every team’s wallet? Should the Rockies go all in on next season? Can they afford to? Can they afford not to? Does Nolan Arenado want out this offseason? If he does, should the Rockies get prospects, major leaguers or both in return? This offseason is winding up to be perhaps the most important offseason in quite some time, a potential...

Thursday Rockpile: Keep Story or Arenado?

Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports Rockies news and links for Thursday, October 15, 2020 If you happened to have thought that trade rumors surrounding Nolan Arenado were a thing of the past once he signed his mega-deal in February 2019, you were given a rude awakening last Spring when Nolan publicly expressed his discontent with the club and the trade speculation exploded like never before. Fast forward eight months and Nolan remains a Rockie, but the offseason is sure to bring a lot more questions about his future with the club. Just in case that wasn’t enough stress for you, Trevor...

Monday Rockpile: Arenado and Trout, stars desperate to win

Photo by Lisa Blumenfeld/ Colorado Rockies news and links for Monday, October 12, 2020 Nolan Arenado and Mike Trout are both some of the game’s biggest talents. Turn on any highlight reel of any week in the season and I’m willing to bet that at least one or both players are in it making inhuman plays. Both players will turn 30 next season and have accomplished so much. Trout has undoubtedly been the best player in the league for almost a decade and is in the GOAT conversation. Arenado is the best defensive third baseman in the game and is quickly climbing up the all-time third...

Keeler: Trade Trevor Story? Trust Rockies GM Jeff Bridich with a rebuild? Not on your life.

Keeler: Trade Trevor Story? Trust Rockies GM Jeff Bridich with a rebuild? Not on your life.

With a $35 million salary in 2021, very few franchises, post-COVID, are looking to bite on Nolan Arenado. Trevor Story makes half that, is two years younger, and plays a position where elite offensive skill sets are at a premium. I ask for the moon. Twice over.
