Our favorite articles of 2018

Before heading into 2019, let’s look back at what made Purple Row great in 2018. Another New Year’s Eve, another chance to look back on the year that was 2018.

As in year’s past, we’ve asked everybody who wrote something for Purple Row if they would like to submit a few of their favorite things...

Rockies news and links for Thursday, December 27, 2018 Will Rockies make a big offseason move? | Rockies.com Thomas Harding takes the post-Christmas slowdown to answer a few questions from fans, including about the future for Jon Gray and Ryan McMahon with the Rockies. He also takes a question about whether the Rockies need to make more moves in order to hold onto Nolan Arenado. Put me in the camp that the Rockies should make more moves in order to compete for a division title in 2019, but not that they need to do so in order to convince Nolan Arenado to sign an extension.
