Colorado Rockies news and analysis for Sunday, March 7, 2021

We are a week into Spring Training which means we are also rapidly approaching the point where the novelty has run out and we just want the real games, conflabbit (pardon my language). The new rules tweaks have made the process a little more bearable (at least we’re not supersaturated with long games featuring minor league guy) but has done little to mitigate our desire for real Rockies games.

So, taking a leaf out of the books of our esteemed SBNation MLB colleagues, we present to you a fantastic and entertaining way to pass the time. Heck, we can even make a game out of it! Below I have split the spring training roster into two categories: pitchers on the 40-man roster and hitterson the 40-man. I’ve used the Internet Anagram Server to generate anagrams and taken some creative liberty to make them more interesting and/or funny and arranged them alphabetically.

See if you can solve them but make sure you hide your answers behind the spoiler-text in the comments. I’ll post the answers (also behind spoiler text) later today.
