Team Hilliard a big part of Lou Gehrig Day

Photo by Ralph Freso/ Rockies news and links for Friday, March 5, 2021 By the time the 2020 season finally started, 121 days after the originally-scheduled Opening Day, as we were still in the midst of pandemic closures, it was just great to see baseball again. With emotions already running high, Rockies fans – and Texas Rangers fans – were treated to an extra dose of inspiration and it came in the form of seeing Sam Hilliard’s family, centered around his dad, Jim, in attendance at Globe Life Field. It was a big day for the Hilliard family as Jim, who was...

Thursday Rockpile: Trevor Story extension unlikely

Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports Rockies news and links for Thursday, March 04, 2021 If you’ve spent any time in the last 48 hours following Rockies news or MLB news, you probably already know that Jon Heyman, an MLB Network insider, reported yesterday that the Rockies don’t appear to have the money to sign Trevor Story to a long-term deal. The Rockies are said not to have the budget for any big signing at the moment, so barring some big change there won’t be an extension coming anytime soon for superstar SS Trevor Story, as I just said in @MLBNetwork— Jon...

Wednesday Rockpile: Can the Rockies repeat their fielding performance from 2020?

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports Colorado Rockies news and links for Wednesday, March 3, 2021 Throw the ball. Hit the ball. Field the ball. It’s this third component, fielding, that, while such a fundamental part of this wonderful game, usually takes a backseat to pitching and hitting. Since Spring Training is the time of year when position battles are decided it seems like an appropriate time to assess the Rockies’ ability to field the ball. The Rockies led all of MLB in team Ultimate Zone Rating (UZR) in 2020. UZR, an advanced fielding statistic developed by...

Let’s forget about most of it for a brief moment, and focus on the young man that closed it out. 20-year-old Helcris Olivarez has arrived—sort of. We may not see him in the big leagues for a while, but against the Dodgers on Monday, it was his live fastball and exciting delivery that gave the Rockies a fresh taste of what is to come. “He probably has the highest upside of any of our young pitchers...
