Colorado Rockies: Charlie Blackmon’s early struggles could be sign of things to come

It is way too early into the season for an “I told you so” but there is a concerning trend that I pointed out near the end of spring training for one player on the Colorado Rockies that is already starting to come to fruition.

Colorado Rockies morning after: Bats for Story, Blackmon come alive
