Colorado Rockies: Raimel Tapia just became an even bigger trade asset

Raimel Tapia played a big role in the Colorado Rockies posting an 11-10 road win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night. His pinch-hit grand slam was his first home run of the season and boosted his batting average to .286 (in just 14 at-bats). It was a great moment for the 24-year-old outfielder and […] Colorado Rockies: Raimel Tapia just became an even bigger trade asset - Rox Pile - Rox Pile - A Colorado Rockies Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

In a somewhat surprising pair of articles considering the team’s recent play, MLB Daily Dish and CBS Sports both recently published articles saying that the Colorado Rockies should trade third baseman Nolan Arenado, even though the Rockies enter Saturday just 2 games back of the Los Angeles Dodgers for the lead in the NL West.

No, the Rockies should not trade Nolan Arenado

No, the Rockies should not trade Nolan Arenado

I can’t believe I even have to write this. In the wake of the Orioles trading Manny Machado to the Dodgers, the idea has surfaced in the national media that the Rockies should trade Nolan Arenado this month. Specifically in a piece from Stephen Tolbert at MLB Daily Dish and another one by R.J. Anderson at CBS Sports. Before we even move on to whether or not trading Arenado this month is a good idea, we need to get one thing straight: The Rockies are not trading Nolan Arenado at the deadline. There is a better chance of aliens landing on Coors Field during a game this month and abducting...

Rockies Insider: Road to first National League West division title in franchise history just got steeper

The Dodgers' blockbuster trade for Orioles' all-star infielder Manny Machado -- for which Los Angeles paid a king's ransom via five farm players, including their No. 4-rated prospect in outfielder Yusniel Diaz -- threw down the gauntlet in the second-half chase for the division crown.

Wednesday Pebble Report: Garrett Hampson is running wild

Prospect news and game results from the Rockies minor league affiliates from Tuesday, July 17, 2018 On a slow day for the Rockies’ minor league affiliates, Garrett Hampson showed off his speed by going 2-for-5 and stealing three more bases for the Isotopes. He now has 34 bags swiped on the year, split between Double-A and Triple-A, in 89 games played. Garrett hasn’t showed any signs of slowing down since his promotion to Albuquerque earlier this year, and while his K% is up and BB% is down since the call-up, his OBP has remained fairly stable.

Giants’ Brandon Crawford weighs in on Manny Machado possibly in Dodger blue

WASHINGTON - Leapfrogging over three teams in the National League West is tough enough, but doing it with Manny Machado playing shortstop on the division leaders makes it a more grueling task. The Dodgers are expected to land Machado any day, a trade that could turn the division’s balance of power and put more heat on the Diamondbacks, Rockies and Giants. “Ooph, OK,” Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford said when told of the Machado-to-Los Angeles reports. “Any team that gets him will have an immediate impact, for sure. He’s one of the best players in...

Arizona Diamondbacks 10, Colorado Rockies 11

Arizona Diamondbacks 10, Colorado Rockies 11

On the plus side, the D-backs scored ten runs. On the other hand... This bore all the signs of a slug-fest early, as the Rockies scored twice in the top of the first, only for the D-backs to respond with three in the bottom half. And so it proved. Arizona had leads of both 5-2 and 8-5, but weren’t able to put away Colorado. Neither starter had a good night, Robbie Ray allowed five runs on eight hits and a walk with two K’s over 5.1 innings, but left with the chance of a win as German Marquez was tagged for six runs in five. With a three-run lead after six, Torey Lovullo turned to his...
