Thursday Rockpile: Trevor Story extension unlikely

Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports Rockies news and links for Thursday, March 04, 2021 If you’ve spent any time in the last 48 hours following Rockies news or MLB news, you probably already know that Jon Heyman, an MLB Network insider, reported yesterday that the Rockies don’t appear to have the money to sign Trevor Story to a long-term deal. The Rockies are said not to have the budget for any big signing at the moment, so barring some big change there won’t be an extension coming anytime soon for superstar SS Trevor Story, as I just said in @MLBNetwork— Jon...

Colorado Rockies cannot pay Trevor Story because Nolan Arenado

It is seemingly mind boggling that the Colorado Rockies have yet to reach out to their last remaining superstar about an extension. However, that is the case, as the Rockies have yet to speak to shortstop Trevor Story about an extension, another misstep in a series of confounding decisions by their front office. But at […] Colorado Rockies cannot pay Trevor Story because Nolan Arenado - Call to the Pen - Call to the Pen - A Major League Baseball Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Monday Rockpile: Fixing what ails Ryan McMahon at the plate

Neville E. Guard-USA TODAY Sports Colorado Rockies news and analysis for Monday, February 15, 2021 It’s been a bit of a roller coaster ride for Ryan McMahon in his Rockies career. Debuting in mid-August 2017 after tearing up Triple-A, he made his first Opening Day roster in 2018. Unfortunately, at that time there was no clear spot in the lineup for the infielder with Trevor Story and DJ LeMahieu playing up the middle, and Nolan Arenado playing at McMahon’s natural position of third base. In 2019, he proved he belonged by slashing .250/.329/.450 with 24 home runs in...

Breaking down what’s next for Trevor Story

Breaking down what’s next for Trevor Story

Thomas Shea-USA TODAY Sports With Arenado gone, what are Trevor Story’s options? Last week, I wrote about the full range of emotions going through my head as I pondered the future of Trevor Story following last week’s Nolan Arenado trade. While the passing time has provided me with minimal clarity, I have at least reached a point where I’m able to explore all the different directions in which Story could go. Essentially it boils down to: will he stay or will he go, and if he goes, when and to which team? Below are the three possibilities for what the next year or...

It’s a long shot but the Tigers need to call on Trevor Story

It’s a long shot but the Tigers need to call on Trevor Story

Photo by Christian Petersen/ With Nolan Arenado traded, Story is available until word of an extension with the Rockies is announced. Allow us to dream a little bit here, Tigers fans. We’ve survived into early February, winter is half over, and as long as things go according to schedule, pitchers and catchers will be reporting to Lakeland, Florida in only one week’s time. We’re optimistic about baseball returning generally, and very much looking forward to it, but of course there are few reasons to feel that way about the Tigers roster. However, we do have one last...
