ICYMI, here are last week’s articles from Purple Row.

  • Kenneth Weber started the week by exploring the potential of the Colorado Rockies trading Brendan Rodgers. He also provided an update on the Arizona Fall League:
  • Does the new MLB playoff format work? Paul Elliott weighs in.
  • Skyler Timmins considers whether the Rockies should sign Noah Syndergaard. (Warning: Thor references abound.)

Tweet of the Week

And enjoy our Tweet of the Week, which lets you try your skill as an umpire. Spoiler: Elias Díaz makes an appearance. (I got 6 of 7.)

Recommended Viewing

This week’s recommended viewing suggested by our own Mario DeGenz. It’s a long but interesting interview with Rockies closer Daniel Bard about his journey through the yips.

Have a great weekend, everyone. Enjoy the World Series, and may you get more treats than tricks.

We’ll be back with new articles on Monday.
