Colorado Rockies: Near future is brighter than Denver Broncos | Rox Pile
I don’t follow the Denver Broncos much myself, aside from scrolling through Twitter and throwing in a “bonco’s” tweet here and there. If you’re looking at both the Broncos franchise and that of the Colorado Rockies, it’s clear that one is trending in a more positive direction on the pathway to success, Kevin Henry of Rox Pile opines. The Broncos are off to a 2-4 start, with four consecutive losses, and they’re facing pressing questions about how to generate success in the short term. The Rockies don’t have such a problem. Sure, there are holes on the roster that could be filled, but the core of the team- a tremendously talented young pitching staff and a sparkling left side of the infield- will be putting the Rox in position to succeed on every given day or night in 2019.

BSN Rockies Podcast: The Nolan Arenado conundrum | BSN Denver
In the latest episode of the BSN Rockies podcast, Drew Creasman prepares for the upcoming class of free agents and what the Rockies might have in store for their own players, namely Nolan Arenado. As for the free agent market, Creasman expects it might get off to a slow start as it did last winter, unless a team is willing to go all-in on Bryce Harper and/or Manny Machado with no hesitations. For the Rockies, Creasman suggests it would “behoove” the Rockies to give their regular starting position players more days off in the coming season. With Arenado, Creasman believes the Rox should give their All-Star third baseman the opportunity to accept their best possible offer this offseason, and if he rejects it, consider the possibility of trading him.
