This week, the Colorado Rockies began rebuilding for 2023.
ICYMI, here are some of last week’s articles.
- Dave Magadan is out as hitting coach, and Stu Cole has been reassigned to the Rockies’ MiLB system.
Dave Magadan is out as hitting coach. The Rockies have a chance to bring in new ideas to revitalize the struggling Colorado offense. Wouldn’t it be amazing if the Rockies conducted a legit search to find the right coach for the job? https://t.co/vomMcnliFc— Purple Row (@PurpleRow) October 14, 2022
- Arbitration decisions are looming in the near future.
“The #Rockies have six players eligible for arbitration this offseason, and there will be some important moves that could be made to the roster.” https://t.co/RvsOQ1lUuA— Purple Row (@PurpleRow) October 12, 2022
- What will the Rockies do about center field?
The Rockies will be searching for an upgrade in center field that can also handle a lead off role. If they had been looking sooner, they could have already acquired a player of that caliber. https://t.co/fvL9Vhzb5i— Purple Row (@PurpleRow) October 10, 2022
- Maybe the Avs can provide a way forward for the struggling Rockies.
The same week that #Rockies owner Dick Monfort sent out his end-of-season letter admitting to a disappointing season, the #GoAvsGo raised their third Stanley Cup Banner. Can the Rockies find inspiration from their neighbors in downtown Denver? https://t.co/nSLQoZEhNy— Purple Row (@PurpleRow) October 13, 2022
