Friday Rockpile: The ghosts of Rockies past

Rockies news and links for January 11, 2019 Are bad contracts coming back to haunt the Rockies? | Rox Pile With Yasmani Grandal signing with the Brewers, the Rockies lost out on what would have been a good pick up behind the plate. It’s also tough to see him go to a division rival who will likely put up a good fight again this season. While we might have hoped to see a signing like this, it’s not likely that we will. The budget has pretty much been maxed out with the Daniel Murphy signing and holding out for Nolan Arenado. It’s tough to use our hindsight and look at deals in the past...

Friday Rockpile: A quiet offseason for the Rockies

Rockies news and links for January 4, 2019 Colorado Rockies: The hot stove is ice cold...and may stay that way | Rox Pile The talk of the town for the Rockies lately has been quiet. There’s not much going on, besides rumors that we might try to re-sign Adam Ottavino. The Daniel Murphy signing had some buzz for a while, but that’s wrapping up. In rumors around the league, the Rockies aren’t really even mentioned as contenders to get top free agents. It’s fun to think about and imagine what players we can get, but the Rockies might just be done making moves for the offseason. So for...

Colorado Rockies: The hot stove is ice cold … and may stay that way

Like many of you, I get up in the morning and check to see if any rumors or news involving the Colorado Rockies have surfaced. And, like many of you, I am starting to get the feeling this exercise may be a waste of time. Since the Colorado Rockies signed Daniel Murphy on December 21, […] Colorado Rockies: The hot stove is ice cold … and may stay that way - Rox Pile - Rox Pile - A Colorado Rockies Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Wednesday Rockpile; New Year’s resolutions for the Rockies

Rockies news and links for January 2, 2019 Colorado Rockies: What the Michael Saunders signing might mean | Rox Pile Amidst the celebrations of ringing in the new year, the Rockies signed a minor league deal with outfielder Michael Saunders. Saunders has some quality experience. The 32-year-old has played in 775 games, playing for the Blue Jays, Mariners, and Phillies. He will not get a spot on the 40-man roster, as that was filled with the Daniel Murphy signing. The Rockies have a lot of youth on the team right now, and Saunders, even in the minors, brings some experience. He also adds a...

Why AJ Pollock makes sense for the Rockies

Why AJ Pollock makes sense for the Rockies

Pollock could be the solution to an outfield mystery Since the December signing of first baseman Daniel Murphy, the general consensus, at least in terms of major signings, is that the Rockies appear to have disconnected the gas to the hot stove. If the Rockies have indeed set their 2019 roster, this piece by Thomas Harding speculates on the impact of the Murphy signing and plays out future lineups. Harding’s article led me to ask three questions: What is the potential of this lineup? Where are the gaps? And what if the Rockies made one more deal to maximize potential and minimize gaps...

Colorado Rockies: How could the outfield line up in 2019?

With the free agent signing of Daniel Murphy to play first base for the Colorado Rockies in 2019, the Rockies outfield situation will look a little bit different as a result. Since the Rockies signed Daniel Murphy to play first base, he will displace Ian Desmond from first base (to the happiness of a lot […] Colorado Rockies: How could the outfield line up in 2019? - Rox Pile - Rox Pile - A Colorado Rockies Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Colorado Rockies: Could Nicholas Castellanos be a fit in the outfield?

With the offseason’s Hot Stove preparing to heat back up with the New Year, will the Colorado Rockies make any additional moves? And could one of those moves be acquiring a corner outfielder? The answer to both questions is, “It’s possible.” However, with the Colorado Rockies recently signing Daniel Murphy to a two-year deal, it’s […] Colorado Rockies: Could Nicholas Castellanos be a fit in the outfield? - Rox Pile - Rox Pile - A Colorado Rockies Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Daniel Murphy, the Rockies, and the decisions we make

The Rockies decided to sign Daniel Murphy, so here are decisions I’m making For Rockies fans waiting on Jeff Bridich to do something!, December 20 was the day. The hot stove brought the Rockies former Cubs first baseman Daniel Murphy. For more on the signing, I recommend this by Purple Row’s Ben Kouchnerkavich and this from Eric Garcia McKinley. You can also find analysis from national perspectives. In addition to Murphy’s bat, I suspect the Rockies liked the short contract, which gives Tyler Nevin more time to develop, Murphy’s history on winning teams, and his availability via...
