MLB: Colorado Rockies at Texas Rangers Ray Carlin-USA TODAY Sports

Reliever Estevez relishes 'Wild' similarity with Sheen | Rockies.com

Thomas Harding has a great article about Carlos Estevez and his relationship with the movie star who shares the same name. It appears that the original “Wild Thing” has been following Estevez since his minor league days due to their shared name, and that has only grown since Estevez’s promotion to the Rockies bullpen.

Thanks to Estevez’s electric stuff and sometimes problematic control, the nickname “Wild Thing” makes even more sense and will hopefully stick with him for the entirety of a very long career in the backend of the Rockies bullpen.

MLBTR Chat Transcript | MLB Trade Rumors

In his weekly chat, Steve Adams answers two questions about the Colorado Rockies’ first base situation. If you haven’t checked out this transcript and some of the past ones as well, I highly recommend doing so. There is usually at least one Rockies-related question in each of them.

With the World Series in full swing, most other Rockies and baseball news sources have dried up until after the games are over and the offseason officially begins. However, MLBTR is still doing three chats a week and these are a great resource for those interested. While they may not be the most knowledgeable on the Rockies (or any team for that matter, due to their coverage being split among all 30 teams), they are a great source of information on the market value of players due to their general coverage of all things free agent and trade market related.
