What the Rockies are saying about Gerardo Parra, professional baseball player

What the Rockies are saying about Gerardo Parra, professional baseball player

A lot of people are saying that the outfielder will bounce back this season. It should have been a harmless, uninteresting signing. Before the 2016 season, the Colorado Rockies signed free agent outfielder Gerardo Parra to a three-year, $27 million deal. Was it a little too much money? Sure, but given the free agent landscape it was nothing appalling. Parra seemed like a safe addition—a move that might be hard to believe given last year's results. But at the time, it was reasonable to view him as a strong veteran presence, a good all-around player and arguably a very good defender. After...

The Rockies should consider Tom Murphy for part-time play at first base

The Rockies should consider Tom Murphy for part-time play at first base

If Murphy learns first base, he’ll have more chances to hit After Ian Desmond’s injury, the Colorado Rockies need another option to fill first base in his absence. Among those seen taking groundballs during practice on Monday, according to Thomas Harding of MLB.com, was none other than Cristhian Adames. Um, No? No, no, NO! The ideas that Adames is a serious part-time option at first base and that the Colorado Rockies are a contending team should be incompatible. That’d be kind of like playing Gerardo Parra there. Or Daniel Descalso. You get the idea. Might I suggest an alternate...

World Baseball Classic 2017, David Dahl injury the topics of latest Purple Dinosaur Podcast

What's with the disinterest in the WBC? Plus, what are the Rockies going to do to replace an injured David Dahl in the lineup if he misses Opening Day? A week into spring training, the Rockies have gotten their first hit of bad news. David Dahl's back is a bigger issue than originally thought, threatening to keep the dreamiest Rockies player off the field for possibly the rest of the Cactus League slate. We'll discuss what that means for Colorado's Opening Day roster and who, if anyone, should play instead of Gerardo Parra if Dahl isn't 100 percent healthy by the start of the season. The...

Colorado Rockies spring training 2017: David Dahl and Gerardo Parra should compete for the left field job

Colorado Rockies spring training 2017: David Dahl and Gerardo Parra should compete for the left field job

It’s a dumb idea, but it’s not quite as dumb as it sounds Sometimes a headline communicates everything. In a profile on David Dahl for the Post yesterday, Patrick Saunders got some complimentary quotes from CarGo and an update on how Dahl is training for the long season. But really, it’s all about the headline here. Rockies’ Dahl ready to grow, challenge Parra for left-field job The “party line” is that Dahl and Parra are competing for playing time this spring. And where there once seemed to be no (major) positional battles, there is now a controversial one. Saunders...
