Brandon Belt is already very good, and I can’t believe I have to point this out

No one brings out the weirdos like Brandon Belt. No one. Over at Sports Illustrated, someone took the time to round up a collection of quotes about every team from anonymous scouts. It was a good idea, and I enjoyed reading it. However, they also sent the initial email to Very Bad Scout, who is bad at his job. Here is what Very Bad Scout said about Brandon Belt: Brandon Belt is going to have to step up his game.

Comparing Buster Posey to the great catchers

Comparing Buster Posey to the great catchers

Apologies to Roy Campenella and all the others who, through no fault of their own, weren't in the majors long enough to be included here Buster Posey turned 30 yesterday, as you may have heard, and while it’s better to turn 30 than to not turn 30, for a baseball player it does typically mean you’re in the decline phase of your career. This is even more true for catchers, and after the offensive down year Posey had last year, it’s easy to speculate that his decline might be approaching its middle. However, Buster Posey has had one of the all time great starts to a career, and if he...

What the Rockies are saying about Gerardo Parra, professional baseball player

What the Rockies are saying about Gerardo Parra, professional baseball player

A lot of people are saying that the outfielder will bounce back this season. It should have been a harmless, uninteresting signing. Before the 2016 season, the Colorado Rockies signed free agent outfielder Gerardo Parra to a three-year, $27 million deal. Was it a little too much money? Sure, but given the free agent landscape it was nothing appalling. Parra seemed like a safe addition—a move that might be hard to believe given last year's results. But at the time, it was reasonable to view him as a strong veteran presence, a good all-around player and arguably a very good defender. After...

Who will be on the Rockies Opening Day roster? The Rockies continued to trim the number of players in major-league camp yesterday, sending down Raimel Tapia, Rafael Ynoa and Daniel Castro. With less than a week left till Opening Day, the Rockies still have to make 12 more cuts to get down to the mandatory 25 players on an active roster. Some of those moves will be easy, with players going on to the DL, but some of the decisions will be quite a bit harder.
