This seemed timely.

And so, we turn to baseball.

The Colorado Rockies made another minor-league signing as they continue to refill their pool of relief pitchers.

  • Kenneth Weber turned his trade focus to the Detroit Tigers this week.
  • New drinking game! Take a shot when someone remembers bizarre injuries involving Rockies. Paul Elliott provided a cheat sheet.
  • Skyler Timmins went back to the mall to make sure he hadn’t missed anything in the post-holiday free-agent clearance sales.
  • This week, Scott Oberg announced his retirement from baseball. Evan Lang revisited Oberg’s career as a Rockie (and his place in Rockies history).
  • Joelle Milholm finished up the week with Part II of her series on the Rockies’ leadoff hitter options.

Weekend Discussion Topic

What is going on with the Padres? They’ve signed, like, everyone that the Mets didn’t, and this week, they added Nelson Cruz. The talent is undeniable, but can they win with this team?
