Here’s how Rockies could land Syndergaard | Rockies.com
The Colorado Rockies have at least some reported interest in New York Mets’ starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard, as Thomas Harding of MLB.com relays. Syndergaard flew under the radar a bit in 2018 thanks to the otherworldly dominance of his teammate Jacob deGrom. However, “Thor” still put together an excellent 154 1/3 inning campaign with a 3.03 ERA. The Rockies have had previous interest in Syndergaard dating back to the 2015 season when he was involved in talks on a possible Troy Tulowitzki trade. Those talks did not culminate in a deal, of course, as Tulowitzki was traded to the Toronto Blue Jays. The Mets enter the offseason with a new General Manager in Brodie Van Wagenen and perhaps he will be more willing to entertain the Rockies’ ideas on a trade package than Sandy Alderson was.

Ranking Jeff Bridich’s biggest trades and signings, looking for clues to this Rockies offseason | The Athletic ($)
Speaking of the Tulowitzki trade, it stands out as perhaps the most significant move Jeff Bridich has made in his tenure as Rockies’ GM. Trades are simply not Bridich’s typical method of operation, writes Nick Groke of The Athletic. While there are very talented players potentially available on the trade market, such as Syndergaard and Paul Goldschmidt, the likelihood of the Rockies parting with prospects (particularly top prospect Brendan Rodgers) does not appear high.

Colorado Rockies: A look at the Hall of Fame case for Todd Helton | Rox Pile
The Baseball Writers’ Association of America recently made 2019 Hall of Fame ballots public and Todd Helton was one of the players to be added, as he had just become eligible after reaching five years of retirement. Rox Pile’s Noah Yingling agrees with me and many other Rockies fans that Helton should be inducted. What do you think, Purple Row community? Should Helton be a first-ballot Hall of Famer?
