Saunders: Will Nolan Arenado ever replace Todd Helton as Rockies’ greatest player?

Nolan Arenado has become the face of the Rockies, at least for now, and has a chance -- a chance mind you -- of supplanting Todd Helton as the greatest Rockies player of all time.

Saturday Rockpile: Three’s a Crowd

Rockies news and links for June 23, 2018 Colorado Rockies: Why are they carrying three catchers? | Rox PileIt goes without saying- the Rockies need all the help they can get in the bullpen. Prior to Thursday’s game, the team called up Yency Almonte from Triple-A Albuquerque to make for a nine-man bullpen. A roster casualty was Ryan McMahon, who was sent back down despite hitting a go-ahead three-run home run just the night before. While the need for bullpen help is understandable, it’s curious to see McMahon sent down instead of Tony Wolters, who has been dreadful at the plate. It’s...

The Rockies have a three-game winning streak and are fresh off a series win against the Marlins NL East neighbors New York Mets.

Colorado Rockies: Ian Desmond turning the corner?

June has not been kind to the 2018 Colorado Rockies.

Desperate times called for desperate measures. On Thursday, the Colorado Rockies sent down Ryan McMahon to Triple-A Albuquerque for right-handed reliever Yency Almonte. With Wade Davis, Adam Ottavino, and Bryan Shaw not available to pitch the series finale against the New York Mets, carrying a nine-man bullpen was a last resort for the depleted and dejected group.

FanPost Friday: Keeping former Rockies who went away

What if you could change history? The nature of baseball is that players don’t often stick around with a single franchise for very long. It’s notable if a player is still on your favorite team’s roster after his rookie contract expires, to say nothing of spending a whole career in one place. This is part of what makes Todd Helton one of the most beloved players in Rockies history. Inspired by this tweet from last month, I’d like to know: Who’s the one former player on the Rockies who you wish spent his entire career here and why? While I’m sure in some universe there exists a...

Teams have 39 days left to make their moves, which is still plenty of time, but they should at least be thinking about it. The Diamondbacks have been playing without some key players due to injuries, yet they’re still leading the division.
