Friday Rockpile: A tip of the cap to Wolters, Dahl, and González

Photo by Andy Cross/The Denver Post via Rockies news and links for Friday, December 3, 2020 It’s the business part of the baseball season with players being non-tendered and rosters changing. It has to be hard for teams to make these choices and it’s hard for fans who are seeing players that they’ve cheered for years be unceremoniously dropped. Even though that’s how things work, it’s worth pausing for a second to appreciate what Tony Wolters, David Dahl, and Chi Chi González, who were all non-tendered on Wednesday, have given the organization.

Thursday Rockpile: What’s the needed return for Trevor Story

Rob Schumacher-USA TODAY Sports Rockies news and links for Thursday, December 3, 2020 With the 2020 Winter Meetings set to kick off virtually in a few days (Dec. 7- Dec 10), I’ve decided it’s in my best interest to prepare for the nightmarish scenario that is a potential Trevor Story trade. The rumors, presumably, will intensify with each passing day, unless the Rockies make a move that shows a newfound commitment from ownership that winning now is the goal. While my personal opinion is that Trevor Story will still be a Rockie at the start of the 2021 season (no,...

Wednesday Rockpile: Will the Rockies go shopping for non-tendered free agents?

Photo by Christian Petersen/ Colorado Rockies news and links for Wednesday, December 2, 2020 Last season, one of the biggest names to drop as a free agent immediately following the non-tender deadline was Kevin Pillar. He was eventually signed by the Boston Red Sox to a one-year deal (and eventually traded to the Rockies). With all clubs across baseball financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the expectation is that more players will be non-tendered this offseason than usual which may produce some upgrade opportunities for the Rockies.
