Friday Rockpile Links

We got new headshots! - Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports

Patrick Saunders recaps yesterday's inter-squad scrimmage, the first Rockies game of the Spring. Good stuff there, especially from super-prospect Jon Gray.

Our own Brian Kilpatrick discusses the state of the Rockies with the Cardinals blog C70 At The Bat.


That's good news.

Justin Morneau has a big glove to fill at first base now that Todd Helton has departed. But Patrick Saunders writes that his glovework has been impressive so far in camp.

Thomas Harding notes that figuring out the fifth starter and lead off hitter are on the Spring Training to-do list.

Around the Web

From Grantland: Don't hate your team's best player. This article specifically talks about Joe Mauer, Joey Votto, and Jason Heyward, but it could easily be about a certain Rockie. I frequently hear people throw shade towards Troy Tulowitzki. That bugs me. Don't do it. He's the best thing the Rockies have going for them.

The Dodger's Zack Greinke left yesterday's game with a sore calf muscle. It's probably nothing, but still something to monitor.

Carson Cistulli takes a look at basically our first footage of new Cuban import Alex Guerrero, the Dodgers' presumptive second baseman. It's a good read.
