Story rewrites records on 2-HR night —

Dude's good, obvi. Two more homers last night means he's the rookie shortstop record holder alone now—no ties, nothing. He also had his host family from Modesto in the stands for the game; I wrote about that family in a feature for this website. You should click here and read that.

Rockies embrace Pokémon Go craze on Sunday — Rox Pile

Here's a fun thing if you're a nerd, like Cameron Goeldner. Nerds. (No, seriously, I've watched minor league clubs across the Cal League do this the last couple weeks, so this is cool to see the Rox get in on. Should be fun at the ballpark today!)

From your mouth to the baseball gods' ears.

Rockies prospect Josh Fuentes knows success starts in his head — Today's Knuckleball

Hey, yours truly wrote that piece, so it is obviously very good. (No, seriously, this is a good look into a player's insight and thoughts about video work, and what he gets out of watching video and then applying the lessons from that video to his game. Hopefully a nice look into the mind of a hitter here.)

Giants prospect Jonah Arenado waited patiently for power, and now it's here — Today's Knuckleball

This is Nolan's little brother, of course. Jonah is a cool dude, very nice (just like Josh Fuentes, for that matter), and he's starting to develop a little power in High-A. Wanted to drop this in here because, first, just like Nolan, Jonah's path to the bigs has not been linear. Who knows what will happen for the younger Arenado in the next few years. And, second, you've gotta see the video in that post. Swings exactly like his brother.
