What’s Up With Trevor Story?

When seeing Colorado Rockies shortstop prospect Trevor Story in person, very little about his all-around game strikes one as sexy beyond his current triple slash line of .283/.395/.535. However, as a teenager in the South Atlantic League, Story’s numbers are on par with the best middle infield prospects in the game which has led to many questions about his ceiling and comparisons...

Rockies-Dodgers Preview

Chris Capuano is mixing his pitches well during his 18 2-3 scoreless innings streak for the Los Angeles Dodgers. It sounds similar to the formula Colorado Rockies starter Jamie Moyer has used since his big-league debut in 1986.
