Monday Rockpile: Keeping the faith for a better 2020

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports Rockies news and links for September 9, 2019 Rockies’ starting rotation for 2020 needs an extreme makeover | Denver Post ($) It’s easy to say that the 2019 starting rotation has been rough, but it’s harder to say what to do with this knowledge to help make 2020 better. Injuries have definitely been a factor, but things just haven’t been as good as they should be. After such a good year last season, hopes were high, but the Rockies pitching has been, at best, lackluster. There are some pitchers who are optimistically hoping for next year, like Jon Gray...

Will it be enough in 2020? | Denver Post ($) There are a number of questions to dive into here, but the one I’m interested in has to do with projecting the Rockies’ pitchers next season. It sure looks grim right now. I won’t argue with that. But I would argue that we don’t know much of anything when it comes to what we should expect.
