Take it away, Phoebe.

The Colorado Rockies continued to make modest moves this week, signing a few more MiLB players and trading Connor Joe to the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Skyler Timmins looked at the specifics of the deal.

The Rockies have two roster spots and a little money, so they surely aren’t done. Stay tuned.

Now to review what happened last week on Purple Row.

  • Kenneth Weber took a look at the rest of the NL West as MLB rosters begin to take shape.
  • It’s Hall of Fame voting season. (#HeltonHOF.) Paul Elliott evaluated Todd Helton’s changes at this point.
  • Purple Row Poet Laureate Skyler Timmins turned to verse this week.
  • Why was trading Connor Joe a good idea? Evan Lang explained the rationale.
  • And Joelle Milholm finished up the week by asking Santa for some bullpen help.
