Saunders: Cheers to coach Tony Diaz, who gets his shot with Rockies’ major-league team

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Last Wednesday, feeling cooped up and restless, I ventured outside my small media-room bubble at Salt River Fields. I wandered to a sunny back field where a number of Rockies players were engaged in spirited infield practice.

Did the Rockies change their uniforms for Nolan Arenado?

  In the summer of 2016 when the Colorado Rockies were playing their best baseball they were doing so while wearing their black vest uniforms. The vests with “Colorado” scripted on the front were famously also worn for the Rockies’ best streak ever in 2007. The best-baseball-in-black theory brought out an interesting conversation in the clubhouse prior to a game. In a conversation...

Clutch is real and he plays third base for the Colorado Rockies

  Clutch is a thing. It’s Nolan Arenado’s thing. There are those who would have you believe that there is no relationship between Arenado’s astronomical RBI totals and any kind of measurable skill, but those people would be wrong.

The Next Stage of Nolan Arenado

Walks, I think, have suffered from something of a marketing problem. And analysts were in large part responsible, back in OBP’s heyday 10 or 15 years ago. The walk felt underrated, and so in some circles it became maybe overrated. Analysts loved players who walked. But other players didn’t respond so well to that, because, to them, you don’t go up there trying to walk. You...
