Tuesday Rockpile: Would the Rockies’ offense be faring better with Raimel Tapia?

Rockies news and links for April 17, 2018 Colorado Rockies: Should they have kept Raimel Tapia on the MLB roster? | Rox PileLet’s check in on the offensive performances of the Rockies’ outfielders.

We have Carlos Gonzalez, who has himself a wOBA of .301. In only 66 plate appearances, there is...

Rockies Podcast: PDP talks Nolan Arenado, the brawl, and the offense

Purple Dino Podcast provides in-depth fight analysis. So Nolan Arenado nearly got drilled yesterday and then lost his dang mind, charging the mound to try to tear Luis Perdomo limb from limb. Perdomo threw his glove and ran away, terrified, as you or I would do, a move that garnered him “a ton of street cred” according to one dweeb in the San Diego media. On this week’s PDP, you’ll hear some reaction from Rockies manager Bud Black, outfielder Carlos Gonzalez, and the man himself, contender for the heavyweight crown, Nolan Arenado. Anyway, the Rockies scored five runs immediately...

The subject is the relatively tepid start by the Rockies' offense. Specifically, three key players whose 2017 seasons were colored by early-season funks that turned into major slumps: shortstop Trevor Story, right fielder Carlos Gonzalez and first baseman/left fielder Ian Desmond.

And in an offseason where CarGo was coming off a rough season and didn’t sign a contract until after Spring Training was well underway, Inciarte’s brotherly presence was much-needed. CarGo sought advice from experienced veteran players like Carlos Beltran after his rough 2017 season, but...

Colorado Rockies: How long is the leash for Carlos Gonzalez?

The six-month wait to once again enjoy Colorado Rockies baseball is over. It didn’t take long for slick defensive plays by Nolan Arenado and bombs hit by Charlie Blackmon to remind me just how much I love the Rockies. Unfortunately, there was something that tried to hinder my enjoyment. Something that haunted me throughout most of last year.

Colorado Rockies: Nolan Arenado’s number next in line for retirement

Nolan Arendado is the most likely candidate to be the next player that the Colorado Rockies franchise retires. That might not seem like an edgy take but it is not at all guaranteed.

No one would argue if Larry Walker‘s number 33 were […] Colorado Rockies: Nolan Arenado’s number next in line for retirement - Rox Pile - Rox Pile - A Colorado Rockies Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More
