The weekend is a great time to kick back and reflect. This Week in Purple is the place to catch up on the news from our team at Purple Row. You’ll find links to Rockpiles and other content below as well as a platform for community discussion in the comments.

It’s February, and you know what that means: Pitchers and catchers will be reporting soon.

In honor of the new month, and the promise of longer, warmer days, here’s the Foo Fighters.

So, Dick Monfort had a wide-ranging and lengthy conversation with the media last week. . . .

  • Kenneth Weber considered the implications of Monfort’s comments.
  • Paul Elliott consider what needs to go right for the Colorado Rockies to meet Monfort’s .500 projection.
  • Skyler Timmins consider the Rockies’ non-roster invites to Spring Training.
  • Evan Lang celebrated the career of old friend Dexter Fowler.
  • Joelle Milholm finished up the week with a lovely meditation on Coors Field during the offseason.
  • And Justin Wick (who’s leaving Purple Row to take a job with the Baltimore Orioles!) celebrated a normal Spring Training without pandemics or lockouts.
