Reader, we have almost made it, and now we find ourselves on the morning of the Colorado Rockies’ first Spring Training game, today at 1:10 pm against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Thomas Harding previewed the pitchers we can expect.

The good news is we can listen on the radio, and it just seems like a good day for some Jimi Hendrix.

Since it’s spring, let’s all be hopeful.

Meanwhile, here’s what happened on Purple Row this week.

  • Kenneth Weber continued his series on Rockies prospects to watch.
  • It’s time to get our baseball calendars organized, so Paul Elliott provided a list of swag and theme nights at Coors Field.
  • Skyler Timmins concluded his series on the career of Don Baylor.
  • Evan Lang wrote about Austin Gomber.
  • Joelle Milholm finished up the week by asking if there would be any future Rockstars at this Spring Training.

Weekend Discussion Topic

I think we should be talking more about Harold Castro, who signed an MiLB contract with the Rockies after being non-tendered by the Tigers. Who will be the Rockies’ utility player when the team breaks camp?
