Foolishly Looking for the Next A-Rod

At around 4:15 AM this past Sunday morning, I was out getting some pizza with friends, when none other than Alex Rodriguez walked through the door. Like every drunken idiot at Joe’s Pizza that night, I put forth my best effort to initiate an interaction with him, but he paid me no attention. After multiple failed attempts, I enlisted my girlfriend to approach him and ask if he’d...

Trevor Story, 2016 Fantasy Outlook

In an NFBC 15-team league where there are no pickups in-season, I already plan on drafting Trevor Story, and it's only November, and this is coming from a guy who doesn't know what he's doing next weekend.  How's that for excitement, Spanish beach?  Hmm, maybe that makes more sense if I leave it as playa.  Here's what Prospect Mike said recently, "(Story went) 20/20 in Double...

Jeff Bridich Continues to Tinker, Adds Minor League Arm

Earlier today, the White Sox announced that they acquired Rockies pitcher, Tommy Kahnle in exchange for minor league RHP, Yency Almonte. This move comes just four days after the Rockies designated Kahnle for assignment. This trade continues the early stages of an offseason during which Rockies fans have seen general manager Jeff Bridich make only minor moves to the team. The biggest...

On the farm: Colorado Rockies prospect profile Trevor Story

  In August of 2015 the Colorado Rockies traded Troy Tulowitzki to the Toronto Blue Jays for Jeff Hoffman, Miguel Castro, Jesus Tinoco and Jose Reyes. The first three names listed are pitching prospects that will hopefully play a very large part in the future of the Rockies. But oh wait a second; the Rockies got Jose Reyes, that’s weird right? He’s a shell of the player he used...

Closing The Book on the 2015 Colorado Rockies

  Grantland’s Jonah Keri wrote, “the Rockies could be this year’s out-of-nowhere squad that rides 99th-percentile luck to a big season.” This fell in line with my spring training prediction of 68 or 88 wins for the 2015 Colorado Rockies. There was an alternate universe where Jon Gray was called up 15 days into the season, Troy Tulowitzki played 140 games in Denver, and...

Rockies' prized SS prospect Story a 'longshot' to be September call-up

It appears as though Colorado Rockies fans won't be getting a sneak peek at the player who could be their next franchise shortstop this year. Manager Walt Weiss told reporters Tuesday that it is unlikely that prized shortstop prospect Trevor Story will be amongst those the Rockies call up with expanded rosters in September. "I don't know if the door is completely shut on that one...

Colorado Rockies: Moving Jose Reyes might be easier than you think

  When the Rockies acquired Jose Reyes in the Troy Tulowitzki, it left many scratching their heads.  The trade was suppose to rid the Rockies of an aging, high priced often injured shortstop, not net one in return.  Even with the the $50 million saved on Tulo’s remaining deal the Rockies still owe Reyes $48 million over the next two years.  With Reyes price tag and Trevor Story...

With Tulo gone, where do the Rockies go from here?

Goodbyes are always hard. Saying “so long” to a franchise player like Troy Tulowitzki is harder than most. But trading the team’s best player, a perennial All-Star, was the right move at the right time and might signal a turn in philosophy – and long-term fortunes – for the Colorado Rockies. The Rockies could still make a last-second trade deadline move, but regardless...

Colorado Rockies trade rumors: D.J. LeMahieu edition

Many names have been tossed around in the Colorado Rockies’ front offices for the trade deadline. Whether it is for an acquisition of an All-Star, or an up and coming prospect, the Rockies are in need of a “pick-me-up” during this trade deadline with a record of 38-49 to date, in last place of the National League West division. Two minor leaguers that have been talked about...

Rockies GM calls SS promotion a 'Story story, not a Tulo story'

The Rockies drafted Brendan Rodgers third overall this year. Rodgers is a shortstop whom many experts considered the best overall talent in this year’s MLB Draft. He’s been likened to current Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and seen as his heir apparent. However, he’s only 18, and the Rockies actually have another top shortstop prospect in their system who just got closer...

Colorado Rockies: Will Tulo Stay?

Troy Tulowitzki The Colorado Rockies stand at the bottom of the NL West with no answer to their many struggles. As the front office and coaching staff try to figure out ways to improve the roster, one idea that comes to mind is starting from scratch and rebuilding from the ground up. What would be the first step for the Rockies in this situation you ask? Surprisingly, finding a...

Minor Accomplishments — Week 3

2013 was supposed to be a breakout year for Trevor Story, who was coming off of an exciting 2012 campaign at Low-A Asheville where hit .277/.367/.505 with 18 HR and 15 SB. That line, combined with the face he was stepping up to the hitter-friendly environment of the Cali League, made for some serious hype last spring – hype which his on-field performance couldn’t match.
